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?

  • 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. Aug 27 '14 at 10:48
  • Might be the case. And you better don't change it to Single :D

Have you switched sorting to "Structure"?

When you're not sorting by Structure, you won't be able to rearrange the entries.

  • 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. May 25 '16 at 19:05
  • I just encountered the same thing but when I change back to Structure all the nesting is lost?
