sorting pages

Attached is a script written for us early-on by HH staff. It works well save for one thing.
Our news archive is set up by a folders for years/folders for months/news-article pages.

I noted (after receiving a question about it today) that this script sorts at the month level. The pages in the folders, though, are not sorted. I'm trying to sort the pages in each month by start-date. I haven't figured out how, as of yet. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think it's just a typo on line 5. I think that _SortTool should be sorting on $eventsArticles, not $eventsArticle (which doesn't exist yet).

    You're right about the typo. The other problem would be I sent the wrong script. Sorry. Attached is the current script that sorts the months successfully. Also is my attempt to order the articles--still not working.

    Try adding

    $_SortTool.addSortCriterion("start-date", "", "number", "ascending", "upper-first")
    #foreach ($newsArticle in $newsArticles)

    (from the current script)

    I thought I had tried that solution myself but must have had my syntax wrong. We're in business now.
