How do you output the all the children of a structure in a reverse order (assuming the children are limited to max depth).

Using the order parameter, Craft requires that you use a second parameter like "desc" after a primary order parameter (eg, "title"). This would look like:

craft.entries.section('volumes').order('title desc')

But what would be the primary parameter that would respect the natural structure order?

Or is there any other way?

The primary parameter you're looking for is lft:

craft.entries.section('volumes').order('lft desc')
  • Thanks carlcs. Very useful. Handy that the Craft documentation fails to mention that parameter! Oct 9, 2014 at 9:09

You could try using use the reverse twig filter.

{% for entry in craft.entries.section('volumes')|reverse %}
{% endfor %}
  • Wouldn't this just reverse the default order, which is 'postDate desc'?

    IGNORE my comment. If it's a structure, the default order is in fact the sort order of the entries in the CP. Just tried the reverse filter and it works as you said.

  • Thanks so much for your help. This should also be the answer but because carlcs's answer addresses the first method of solving the problem, I thought it more suitable to tick that one. Oct 9, 2014 at 9:08
  • No worries. I like his answer also. I learned something new! ;) Oct 9, 2014 at 14:59
