Hello everyone,

I have a premium wordpress.com account and i'm trying to solve a important issue, essential for my website idea.

I need to have my posts in the front page ordered by date modified. I have read that by falsifying the date, it can be achieved, but unfortunately, i can't apply it, as i need to use date accuracy in my posts.

I tried the sticky note method, but all the posts with sticky notes activated, were positioned by alphabetical order!

So i wonder, what can i write in the CSS editor to obtain what i need?
Is there some code allowing to change the order of those sticky notes?

Thanks for the time and patience,

Hi Ricardo, welcome to the forums. Unfortunately, the order of posts is not controlled by the css which only controls appearance variables such as font, color, size and alignment. You might find more help in the WordPress forum where issues like this may have been discussed previously. Have you looked for a plugin to handle this?

Unfortunately, i didn't have any reply from wordpress forum yet, reason why i am trying other sources.

Again unfortunately, i'm using a wordpress.com hosted website, and not a self-hosted installation, therefore, i can't use a plugin to solve this issue. My only change is via css editor
