Sorting feature posts?

    There seems to be no logic to how featured posts sort or rotate in Romero. It’s not by pub date. There doesn’t seem to be metadata anywhere to indicate how to sort which seven posts are featured—just the option to change the tag. It’s not random, but I’m hoping my observation of how it’s deterministic is wrong.

    It might be sorting by the hidden post updated date/time, which is totally suboptimal. It doesn’t even make sense to use that value from a content management perspective.

    What am I missing?

    Hi – I don’t know what’s happening with your site but the featured content is sorted in reverse chronological order by post date.

    The functionality is the standard WordPress.com featured content code:
    https://wordpress.com/support/featured-content/

    I believe it skips sticky posts.

    Thanks – Ben
