Title may be slightly misleading as I’m not exactly after an auto-increment, but - I’m currently prototyping a webcomic site and I’ve got a content type of ‘page’ for a comic page. On that, there’s a ‘position’ field that’s a unique number, so the page with the position of 1 is the first page etc. This works fine, but if I want to go back and add new pages in in any position other than last, I’ve got to then go through and update every other one. E.g. I’ve created pages 1 through 12, but I want to go back and add an intro page in position 1, page one has to be edited to be position 2 and so on.
I’m wondering if there’s a better way of doing this where something will automatically bump up everything else if I try to replace it, or some other way of ordering the entries? Is there an inherent order for the posts that I can then access and edit to reorder them? Any ideas welcome, thanks
