Sort page tree in sidebar by title


is it possible to sort the displayed child pages on the left sidebar by title? I know that it is possible with the page tree macro, but I can't find any settings for the sidebar. I appreciate your help!

For the default theme go to the bottom of the left-hand navigation and click on Space Tools. Select "Reorder pages". Expand a parent page and you will see an icon that looks like this image2015-3-11 15:30:24.png appear next to the parent page. Click the icon and all of the sub pages will sort by title. They should also continue to sort alphabetically going forward ... unless you manually move a page and change the sorting.

Hi Davin, I used to follow these steps and everything worked fine, but recently it stopped working. When I click on the icon the existent pages get sorted, but new pages always go to the end of the list, not respecting the alphabetical order. Any ideas? Thanks.

What theme are you using ... Default or Documentation? The process if different depending upon the theme you use.

I am using the default theme.

Davin, I do not know if your answer help Adil, but it was the advice I need.  Thanks!
