Cannot sort pages in panel

I have a blueprint that mimics the blog example, but I am unable to sort the pages in the published category.

Below is the blog blueprint

And here is the post blueprint

Published posts (minutes) do not get sorted on the panel. As you can see, they are sorted aesc alphabetically.

It looks as if you defined the num: option in the parent instead of in the blueprint of the posts (minutes) itself where it should go? Or which one of those above is the blueprint for the minutes?

Meetings is the parent blueprint (blog) and minutes is the child (post). the second onebox is the minutes.

What do you have in this sections/minutes blueprint?

type: pages
headline: Minutes
info: "{{ page.date.toDate('Ymd') }}"
template: minutes
empty: No minutes yet
sortBy: date desc
parent: kirby.page('about/meetings/minutes')

Hm, I don’t quite get it. Could. you please post your folder structure in a way I can see all text file names that are relevant?

Here’s a screenshot off ftp

side note, I was able to sort of fix it after your previous comment of sections/minutes by updating sortBy to just sort, but I want to flip the order now. Tried both date asc and date desc.

type: pages
headline: Minutes
info: "{{ page.date.toDate('Ymd') }}"
template: minutes
empty: No minutes yet
sort: date desc
parent: kirby.page('about/meetings/minutes')

Something is wrong here, the date January 8, 2019 is differen tfrom 01.08.2019. Where does this info come from? Ymd should show 20190108, not what it is actually showing.

Apologies… copy and pasted and forgot to update all… this is what my sections/minutes looks like now, myself and my client are in the US so they read dates as “month day, year” :

type: pages
headline: Minutes
info: "{{ page.date.toDate('m.d.Y') }}"
template: minutes
empty: No minutes yet
sort: date desc
parent: kirby.page('about/meetings/minutes')

There’s a flip option:

sortBy: whatever
flip: true

Still wondering why asc or desc won’t do the job.

That did it! Such a simple solution as with everything else I’m learning. As an FYI I followed the example here to build this, so might need to be updated to K3 if it’s change since K2. I’m new so I don’t know. Thanks for the help again @texnixe!

That is actually a Kirby 3 example and should work, as it does in the starterkit for the notes, without the flip option.

Interesting. Not sure why it didn’t work for me, but regardless its fixed now so thank you!
