Joomla 1.7 ordering a blog category page


This is driving me crazy....

My home page (www.marke2ing.com) menu item is as follows:

Menu item type[category blog]
Blog layout options - cat order[no order], article order[featured article order], date for ordering [published]

Result: random choice of article shown, none of which are selected as "featured" (i chose 3 others as featured).

Sub page (www.marke2ing.com/getinspired)
Menu item type[category blog]
Blog layout options - cat order[no order], article order[most recent], date for ordering [published]

Result: this correctly orders by date article was created, however if it doesnt do it by published date. To test this i "unpublish" and then "publish" but the published date doesnt update, thus no change. If i need to change order i need to copy contents and create a brand new article.....

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


(Boy to i regret jumping straight into Joomla1.7)

For your publishing problem...it's really not a Joomla 1.7 issue...

To change the published date for an article simply do this:

Go into the Article Manager
Select the article you would like to change
Go over to the Article Properties and view the Publishing Options.
Change the Start Publishing date here...

This will affect the date that you want your article published.
