How To Re-order Pages in Umbraco

Re-ordering pages on a website is a fairly common task. Recently, one of our content editors asked me how to sort pages; he was trying to drag pages in the tree to where he wanted it to live and then saving it, but wondered why it did not save correctly.

How do you re-order Umbraco pages?

In the Umbraco back-end, navigate to the area you want to organise. Right-click on the parent of the area you want to tidy up to open the Umbraco context menu. Umbraco_sorting_pages Click 'Sort' Umbraco_sorting_pages_1 You will now see a list of all the child pages. By clicking on any of the pages, you can now scroll each one up or down. Umbraco_sorting_pages_2 Continue moving pages until you are happy with the ordering of your pages and click the 'Save' button. If you now take a look at your website's site tree you will see that the order will have changed. Enjoy!
