How to sort by the original publication date

The original publication date is the date that displays on the article regardless of the date that it is created in Sitefinity. For example, if you were moving all of your articles from another platform, the date you move them over to Sitefinity is often a different date from when it was originally published. 

Many people like sorting by this original date, newest to oldest. To do this, you will need to follow the steps below. 

1. When editing an article, make sure to use the “Original Publication Date” field
