I've built a basic site, and have extended it somewhat. I now have the ArticleHolder and ArticlePage-children. However, I want to sort them in inverted order (in relation to the sitetree). So uhmm... do i place a statement in the control children, in the ArticleHolder or ArticlePage? I don't get it... (yes it's a noob question, I know... I'm learning)

You will need to add a custom function to your ArticleHolder which calls sort() on the children.

function OrderedChildren() {
$oc = $this->Children();
$oc->sort('Sort DESC');
return $oc;

Then instead of using <% control Children %> you can use <% control OrderedChildren %>

Wow... it's that easy huh? Thanks for being so helpful, I'm on plenty of forums and questions with such obvious answers usually get flamed to bits, so props where props are due! :)
