The following video provides an explanation on how to use sort order so that you get a scalable and organized approach to managing your navigation in WordPress. While geared at WordPress sites, this approach should work for any content management system that provides an automated or semi-automated way of creating navigation. This tutorial assumes that you are using a theme which supports multilevel navigation (i.e. drop down menus) and have a basic familiarity with using WordPress to edit and create content. You will also want to note this tutorial reference the function wp_list_pages(); and includes the parameter “sort_column=menu_order” (e.g. wp_list_pages(‘sort_column=menu_order’); ). For more on wp_list_pages and it’s parameters visit the WordPress Codex.
