    hi there, i'm having trouble with the "Recent Post" widget. I've inserted the widget in the footer of my site and expect the post to list most recent at the top but this is not happening. I don't see a feature in settings. can you tell me how to fix this? site is still in development but can be viewed at this link:
    thank you,

    Hello nancyverdi,

    It looks like the date of all of those posts are on the same day. Did you just create them? Are you sure they are in the correct order? You can change the time of the post when you edit it.

    You are right Elliott all those post were entered on the same day so I feel a bit foolish however, i just posted a new entry and this new post does not appear at the top, it appears on the bottom as the last post.
    see attached.

    The default query is supposed to list your posts in descending order. You must have reversed that somehow.

    Try opening up /wp-content/themes/[your_theme]/lib/classes/widget-recent.php and on line 46 you should see this.

    'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1,

    Add this beneath it.

    'orderby' => 'date',
    'order' => 'DESC'

    If that's still not working then double check and make sure you have all plugins deactivated and completely delete the theme before downloading + uploading a fresh copy.
