You are able to sort news items in the news list by one of the fields listed in web.config file, section: telerik -> cmsEngine -> MetaFields.
For those fields there is a "sortable" property. By default for news the following fields are avaiable, they are all set as sortable:
Title, Summary, Author, Source, Publication_Date, Expiration_Date, Thumbnail.
To sort the news list items you have to:
- Add a news list control on a page,
- Click on edit in the top right corner,
- In Appearance section modify the SortBy field.
You can choose between Ascending and Descending order by adding "ASC" or "DESC". For example if you want to sort news by publication date in descending order , you should type "Publication_Date DESC" in the SortBy field. (Note that the name is case-sensitive)
We should also apologize for this small bug you may encounter: When you type in the SortBy field a name that doesn't exist you get a "no such name" message. After that the control may act weird so you have to re-add (delete and then add) it.
