Joomla 1.7 - Changing the ordering of Featured Articles


I usually don't have this problem -- at least not with Joomla 1.5.

Please look at this link (development site):


Please describe the steps to change the ordering of the articles on the Home Page.

Here's what I tried so far.  I went to the Menu Manager, Clicked on the only Menu item, which is Home.  

Menu Manager: Edit Menu Item

In Layout Options I  went to Article Order, and from the drop down I selected "Article Manager Order"

However the article called "Bottom Stuff" still appears at the top of the page.

Supposedly this Joomla help page tells how to do it:


Any suggestions?   Attached is my article order from the Menu Manager.  Also capture of my Article Manager Order.
  (No matter how much I change my article order, it does not affect the order of the articles.   The Featured articles are all in the same "categorized" category

Go into the menu manager and select the menu item that contains the Featured Articles.

Then set the Article order to: Featured Article Order...NOT Article Manager Order...

 featured article order
Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks Nukit!

I can't believe I missed that "Featured Article" in the drop down!
