If you are using the "Default" theme at the bottom of the left nav there is a button called "Space Tools". Click on it and select "Reorder Pages". This gives you a tree view that will let you drag and drop to re-order the pages.

If you are using the "Documentation" theme there shoudl be a "Browse" button in the top nav. Click that and then click "Pages". On this page click the "Tree" link and then you can drag and drop to re-order the pages.

Thanks, Davin. I have the Default theme, and looked in Space Tools. I found what you described, but it's not quite what I want. I see that I can reorder the different items that appear in the left menu. But there is one item in the left menu - Meeting Notes - that I want to sort. For example - at the top of "Reorder Pages", our home page has an A, Z, and downward arrow so that if you wanted to, you could sort all the items in your left menu alphabettically, or I assume, just the opposite. What I want is to sort just the meeting notes. Our most recent meeting note is way at the bottom of the list, and the first few ever made by us are viewable without having to do any scrolling. It would be more useful to be able to see the most recent at the top.

Another similar question about the Meeting Notes: If I click on Meeting Notes from the left menu, a page comes up that shows 12 meeting notes. But it shows the first 12 meeting notes we ever created. It would be more usefull to have the most recent 12 meetings notes show on the page.

Hopefully I have described the problem a little better?

Thanks,

Linda

There is no way to have the left nav sort Z-A for certain sections ... only A-Z. You would need to order them manually every time you create a new one.

As far as I know there is no other way other than manually. However if you're adding single pages it's only a few seconds work to re-order the pages as you need them. Getting them into that order in the first place is another question.

Do you know you can also re-order them from space admin/Pages? This is easier and faster than doing it from the Tools menu.

Cheers.
