As the title says, I changed a section from Channel to Structure, but when clicking on that section in the dashboard, the layout still looks like a Channel, and I'm not able to reorder/drag the entries.

I've tried switching the section back to a Channel, and then again back to a Structure, with no change. Most of the entries were added since switching over to Structure, but they all still behave like Channel entries.

Good to know you can do that. No problems at all after changing the section type? – carlcs Aug 26 '14 at 8:29
Nope, no problems so far. I'd guess that you might lose the hierarchy/order data if you switched from Structure to Channel, but I'm not sure. – shanecavaliere Aug 27 '14 at 10:48
Might be the case. And you better don't change it to Single :D – carlcs Aug 27 '14 at 10:50

Oh man I feel so dumb. Thank you so much for this answer. It looks like as of Craft 2.5 you can arrange by Title, URI, author, as well as structure order. – Rob Erskine May 25 at 19:05
