How can you change the order children are shown?

I started with my direct line, and now I'm adding siblings.  They're not reordering based on birthdates (with so many abouts/unknowns/etc., I can see why that's not automatic). Can I manually change the order?

Thanks,
Liz

Hi Liz,

There's no manual way to sort them, because it is trying to sort by birth order.

Maybe there's a way you can play with the abouts/unknowns to get the result you want? If you have reason to think they belong in a certain order, there must be a way to do it.

Actually, where I'm seeing the problem, Watkins-1248, all of the kids I added have birthdates.  But I think I figured out what happened...I originally typed 1996 instead of 1896 for one.  The rest are in date order.  I just forced a reload of the corrected profile.  I'll see if it's all better tomorrow.  Sorry for asking a question about a problem it seems I created!
Cheers,
Liz
Great! Small thing: You shouldn't have to wait until tomorrow to see the results of a correction like this. You may need to force a reload of the profile, though. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Reloading
all better!  Thanks for your help (and patience!).

Cheers,
Liz
