cutehack automatically arranges them by date (in the case that the dates have been mixed up)
and yes oliver there is an auto archive hack but it doesnt work woth shit on 1.3.6 and cutehack
not so that they are in order of date, so that they are in any order you want them to be.
for example, i use cutenews as a next gigs list for my mate's band's website, so he (who knows nothing about web design) can just logon and add gigs to the list. i have it so that the oldest news is at the top, so that the earliest gig entry is at the top...
the problem is that when he gets a gig that is before their current last gig, that listing appears at the bottom and the list of gigs is not in order of when the gigs are. god that was difficult to explain. i hope it makes sense.
at the moment there are two solutions but neither of them are suitable for me:
A) use the alphabetical sort code - and then make sure the title of the news is the date of the gig. the problem with this is that i'm in the UK and i would have to use a date format that makes no sense in order for it to work - i.e 2004/03/15
B ) use the cutedateedit program which means you download the news.txt file and edit the times the news items were posted and then reupload the news.txt file. the problem with this is that my mate knows nothing about FTP, i don't want him to have my FTP password, its a lot of hassle and it generally defeats the point of using cutenews....
ok, so i could use some calendar program instead of cutenews, but it would be so much better if you could just go to edit news and then be able to drag and drop the order, or even just renumber the news articles....
