I have a collection with entries that have a date field called release_date. I want to ensure that the CP orders the entries by this field (newest release date first). I've tried a couple things in my [collection_name]/folder.yaml file, but the CP is still always sorting by the Title instead. Here's what I've tried:

  • order: release_date
  • sort: release_date
  • sort_by: release_date

I'm assuming here that you should be able to use the sort modifier, but that may not be the case.

Note: release_date is one of the columns set in folder.yaml. I can successfully sort entries by clicking on the table header, but it doesn't remember that when I refresh the page.
