When we want to change the page orders in wordpress, at first it happened two “home” tabs showed up.
After we change “order” level in Pages settings, it’s still not working. There is a helpful codex, which is wp_list_pages. There are many ways to change the order in which page tabs are displayed in your wordpress blog or website.
Tips: You might want to see my other video which changing page order can be easily done by changing number under “order” in Admin/Pages click, “quick edit”. These numbers defines the order of the page list.
If this tip doesn’t works for you, then we will modify some codes in header.php.
In this video tutorial, You will discover:
1. Cool plugin: My page order plugin
2. Find out what and where you can find page ID in WordPress.
This is the code:
35, 2, 37, 39 are the pages IDs, obviously you want to replace this numbers with your page IDs.
I happened to include all pages ID i want in my site by editing header.php and it worked. I recommmend that you back up your file before making any changing. I hope it will be a tiny help for my beginner blogger friends.
//Updates: wordpress 3.0 Twenty Ten users, i have made another video how to change page settings.

replace default wordpress page. Hmmm… very interesting idea.
So, blogs can look like postofolio with the personal homepage.
I became interested in this idea.

Thanks for sharing, you seem to know some coding 🙂
I personally use Thesis, which is a super-customizable WordPress Theme
I fell in love with it and I couldn’t live without it.
Keep rocking !
Hey Mars Dorian,
Danke for coming and leaving a comment 😀 I start to know wp in January 2010 and didn’t really pay attention on it but now i love it, and it’s very interesting 😀 I guess you’re right about Thesis, i already notice alot people use it. I assume you’re German? 😛 Gruesse.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I’m not sure how to set up the RSS feature. I know it comes with the template. I used the Bold theme which you can get at Elegantthemes.com. It was $20. He has a bunch of nice themes to choose from.
I have checked your site just now too. Did you try to ask the creator of the theme? how about if you change the recent time to default time for a while to test where your RSS link goes?
How did you get the twitter, rss, dig, and SU icons on the top right of your page. They look so nice. Is that a plugin of some sort?
Your blog seems to be coming along really nicely!
Good morning 🙂 The plug in is called Fixed Social Buttons. I agree with you there, the plugin looks nice. Thanks for your nice comment, have a good weekend 😉

Come all the way from Indonesia to come back to Germany and visit my best friend, Kimi. Hopefully reportedly fine and healthy always.
And like Kimi is busy so not had time to update the blog.
Salam hangat untuk semuanya ya? 😉
Hey cah ndeso,
haha thanks, I am well and healthy 🙂 I am making videos for complete beginners, it’s a bundle starts from installing:) it’s not yet done lol. But thanks for paying attention, salam balik ya 😉
Danke, das Video ist richtig gut und hilfreich. Ich habe Dir schon
im WordPress-Forum geantwortet.
Bei mir werden die erstellten Seiten immer noch nicht angezeigt, obwohl sie alle erstellt sind und im Menü auftauchen. Bei Klick auf die Seite unter http://www.spreewaldfleischer-roesner.de heißt es immer Fehler 404, die Seite exisitert nicht.
Hast Du eine Ahnung woran das liegen kann?
Danke und Gruß,
Danke dass du hier gekommen bist. Ich hab dir Email geschrieben,

i’m a wordpress newbie and would give you a big thank you for that
helpful and well done video-tutorials. Thanks for that.
Only one little request, maybe. I think it would be great when you write
down in the post wich plugins you use in the tutorial and perhaps
link to them.
So once more, a big thanks and keep up this rocking tutorials
Thanks so much for your nice comment and really really good feedback. I am so happy about this, and you’re right, i forgot to add plugins i use, i will definitely add it to my future post. Stay in touch!

Hi, just want to tell you about my plugin “CMS Tree Page View” (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cms-tree-page-view/) that I think is a bit more intuitive than the “My page order” plugin. Please try it out and let me know what you think!
Hey Pär, thanks for coming by and your plugin! It’s really awesome, i have just tried it! But it doesn’t solve the common problem, which when we create pages, we have “two home” pages, it will only be solved if we have changed the order of pages ID. I have noticed lots of people still questioning of this. Keep up your good work! cheers
Hey Kimi what did you do to start learning PHP? And what did you read in order to understand how wordpress files are related to each other?
I started to learn php after i really wanted to create my own theme. WordPress codex help me alot. I am not so good at php, but because i love wordpress, i am learning a little. I have read wordpress codex and template hirarchies for beginners to see that the files are related to each other.
I dont have nav tab when i search it in header.php
I found horizmenu,hopefully that is the one.
Can you do a favour?Can you copy and paste the code which you told to post in this blog post?
Can you copy and paste the code which you showed in the video in this blog post?Its hard to type it all by ourself especially to wordpress newbs.
@Charles, Thanks for the comment!! I have edited the post and paste the code to make it easier, your site looks great now 😀

@Michael Pedzotti, Thank you for coming by, and also your really great ideas in that link! I am already planning about creating ebooks, but not yet done. Thanks!
Hey thanks for visiting my blogI actually used a plugin to fix the issue.I am still having some trouble in fixing the 2 home pages without that plugin.I will see what happens when I try this method and keep you updated.Thanks anyway
@Charles, I personally do not use plugins too much as it can slow down page loading speed. I used to have more than 20 plugins, i reduce it to 7 plugins only.

Your video tutorial helped me a lot! Everything worked perfectly. But today I upgraded wordpress to 3.0.1 and now I have to start all over again. Now I see that Header.php is different from the old one. Since I’m lost when it comes to php, I don’t really know what to do from here. Can you maybe help me out? I would appreciate it so much!
I don’t know what you want to do with your header?
Valentina Wali says
Well I tried to change that piece of code as you showed in the video but it doesn’t work in wp 3.0.1
Do you maybe have any tips of how I can get rid of the “home” page om my wordpress? I can mail you the php code I have, if that would help
Valentina Wali says

Welcome to my blog..
It depends on the theme you are using, and if it supports latest wordpress custom menu.
If your theme does, I already made a tutorial here is the quick link:
