Default Order by...

I have several "article" type forums that have a bunch of content that i've gathered from various magazines and online publications. I have published the content to my article forum but i would like to sort the forum by the date of the original publication. How can i do this without having to put the date as the first part of the title and sorting by title, if that would even work? Could I do a custom field called "date published," enter the published date, and then have the article forum order by date published by default? If so, how can i do this?

HAve you tried using the AEO hack over at .org with GARS? You can specify the entry dates there until I can look into implimneting a posting date option

I tried looking over at vBulletin.org and couldn't find the hack you are talking about. It sounds like it would solve my problem so if i could find it that would be great. Could you provide me with a link?

Thank you very much for your reply!

I think this is important esp in tutorials when you may have a series of tutorials on a topic - you would want them to essentially stay stuck in date order (oldest (ie. Tutorial 1) first)
