Enabling weight settings on content types

Paul Kiddle edited this page Sep 20, 2018 · 1 revision


The weight settings allow you to finely control the order of content. For example, if you have many taxon descriptions, you may want to control the order that they appear on the Descriptions tab on a taxon page.

In many cases using the Sticky at top of lists setting will be sufficient to control which node appears first. For example, if you had multiple taxon descriptions for a single taxon and enabled Sticky at top of lists for one of these, it would be this one that appears on the taxon Overview page and would be first on the 'Descriptions'' page.


  1. From the Admin menu go to Structure then Content types
  2. Click edit next to the content type that you want to enable weight settings for (e.g. Taxon Description)
  3. Click 'Weight Settings'' from the bottom left menu
  4. Select YES under ENABLE to activate weight settings for that content type
  5. Click Save content type
