Order Your Posts Manually

Order your Posts Manually by Dragging and Dropping them

This plugin is a simple plugin for ordering your posts totally by hand.

Main Features

Change the settings via: WP Admin Panel » Settings » Order Posts Options
Start the plugin via: WP Admin Panel » Tools » Order Posts Manually
Drag and drop your posts in the order you like!

WARNING: Running this plugin will actually change the CREATION- or MODIFICATION dates of your posts in the database, to change the display order.
It will swap some of the dates.
So, if you think the EXACT DATES of when a post was created and / or modified are more important than the order of the posts: DON'T USE THIS PLUGIN!
