Vine Type Content Management with Standards in Mind

14 Nov 2005


  • $comment_sort
  • behavioral
associated template variable

This variable specifies the sorting order of comment posts when multiple comment comments appear for an article. Use the name of an element within the comment node of the wb.xml file optionally followed by DESC representing descending (reverse) ordering. If DESC is omitted, the sort will be ascending.

$comment_sort:comment_posted DESC
  • Sort order is culture-sensitive based on the $culture in effect.
  • Sort order is site-wide, meaning you cannot have one section sorting one way and another section sorting another way.
