If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Yes – in sidebar.php search for
$children = wp_list_pages("title_li=&child_of=". $parent ."&echo=0");
and replace it with
$children = wp_list_pages("sort_column=post_title&title_li=&child_of=". $parent ."&echo=0");
You can also use a different value for “sort_column” – supported values are:
‘post_title’ – Sort Pages alphabetically (by title) – default
‘menu_order’ – Sort Pages by Page Order. Note the difference between Page Order and Page ID. The Page ID is a unique number assigned by WordPress to every post or page. The Page Order can be set by the user in the Pages→Edit panel. See the example below.
‘post_date’ – Sort by creation time.
‘post_modified’ – Sort by time last modified.
‘ID’ – Sort by numeric Page ID.
‘post_author’ – Sort by the Page author’s numeric ID.
‘post_name’ – Sort alphabetically by Post slug.
