Geof's Relentless Kvetching About WordPress

Thoughts and Complaints About WordPress

Reversed Page Numbering

leave a comment »

I’ve gotta say that I find ticket 2972 to be wonderfully right-headed:

Currently, the most recent page (in any of the archives — dated, categorized) is page number 0. When clicking on Next Page, the url shows it being paged=1, thus page number 1. Going back even further, the page numbers increase.

However, when new posts are added, all the content in the pages shift with it.

In my opinion, it would be better if the oldest posts would be on page 1. This way, if new posts are added, consequently new pages are added. AND the content of the pages stay the same.

It’s all about future-proofing, and that’s a very, very good thing.
