Publishing does not always respect the settings in the Blog Management dialog for journals other than the primary journal.
I publish my main pages in reverse date/time order (newest first). I then publish my archives in chronological order by month. This works just as it did before for the primary journal. However, when I try to do this for any of my other journals, I get very mixed results.
Neither publishing main pages nor archives reliably follows the settings checked on the Blog Management dialog. Twice I could only get chronological order no matter what I did and now I can only get reversed order no matter what. Also, if the Blog Management dialog shows the settings for the Whinery and I publish the EveryDay Yoga entries, I get the latest Whinery entries using the EveryDay Yoga templates on the EDY site.
Again, the primary journal seems to be working perfectly. I'll try to track down a pattern and if I can, I'll update this thread.
Whatever settings are in place when I start Blog are the settings used by the publishing routine. So, I can still change the date/time order but I have to restart Blog for them to take effect. I'll verify the situation with the primary journal when I publish to the Whinery later today.
