If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
My blog is sorting ascending by the date – so the oldest are appearing first.
The newest should appear at the top..
Is was working fine before but perhaps a recent wordpress update has messed with something
Do you know what the problem could be.
I don’t know why WordPress would change the order of posts by itself, that’s not what I would consider normal behaviour.
Firstly, disable any plugins you have active to eliminate any bugs caused by a conflict somewhere. If this doesn’t make a difference, and assuming you’ve not changed any template files anywhere you need to modify the query string to sort descending to fix this.
Open up template_blog.php and around line 11 change this code:
$query_string = "cat=".$negative_cats."&paged=$paged";
$query_string = "cat=".$negative_cats."&paged=$paged&orderby=DSC";
