    Sorting items / data Link to this post


    I have created special page like catalog with items in it but it'd like to sort them by date (newest on the top).
    In my site tree it looks like that:

    Catalog holder page |
    - item page / date 1996
    - item page / date 2001
    - item page / date 2010

    And i'd like to display those in a list sorted by date (newest on the top).
    Help please ...

    I have no idea how to do this within the sitetree automatically (I know that you are able to manually re-order the pages).
    But if it is within a DataObject::get then you can specific the sort order.

    Possibly adding this to your page object would work - but as I said within the sitetree I don't know..

    $default_sort = 'Created DESC'; //order by created date - I assume this is what you mean by "Date"
