How do you manually change the order of a children display macro?

Need a manual sort of children pages

1 answer

Hi Sue,


the macro itself offers 4 options to sort the children (title, creation, modified and the blank option). The only way I know of manually controlling the order of the children display macro is via the blank option. This option sorts the children like they are sorted in the page tree. The page tree is sorted alphabetically per default, but you can reorder the pages in the "Space tools".

I hope this helps.


Best Regards
