Default Order

When nav_order fields are omitted, the pages are ordered alphabetically by their titles.

By default, all Capital letters come before all lowercase letters; you can add nav_sort: case_insensitive in the configuration file to ignore the case).

Digits precede letters, and numeric titles are ordered lexicographically: 10 precedes 2 (in contrast to explicit numeric nav_order values).

  1. Check that the titles of the children of this page are shown in the order:

The default order of numeric titles depends on which version of Jekyll is used to build the site: the default build on GitHub Pages uses Jekyll 3.9 and gives lexicographic order, but when using Jekyll 4, 2 precedes 10.
