Articles Field allows you to choose the order in which the articles will be displayed.

You can choose a primary and a secondary ordering. The secondary ordering will be used when the value of the primary ordering is equal for two or more articles.

For both ordering types, you can pick between the following options:

  • Ordering (in the "Articles" manager)
  • ID
  • Title
  • Alias
  • Hits
  • Created Date
  • Modified Date
  • Published Date
  • Featured State
  • Category Order
  • Category Title

You can then specify the ordering Direction, setting it to be either Ascending or Descending.

The ordering of the articles applies to frontend output as well as the list of articles in the Input Select when you create/edit an article.
