Working with nodequeues

As mentioned in Translating taxonomy terms, there is a nodequeue associated with each of the vocabularies ending in groups. At its core, a nodequeue allows you to reorder content within the queue thus allowing you to present information to the public in the order you desire. Every time you add a term to a vocabulary that has a nodequeue, a new subqueue will be created for that term. If we follow the example from Translating taxonomy terms and provided you have tagged content to the term, then you should now have a subqueue called “Home-Slideshow” on your site that contains at least one item. To view this subqueue, first click “Structure” within your admin toolbar.

You should now see the Structure page. On this page, click “Nodequeues”.

Since the term that was created belonged to Content Groups, locate Content Group Queue and click “View”.

If you have more than one subqueue, locate your term (“Home-Slideshow” for our example) and click “View”. If you only had the one subqueue, then you will have been taken directly to the subqueue page and can continue at the next step.

* decoration

You should now see a list of all the content tagged to that subqueue. Each item may be dragged and dropped to change its position. It is important to note that every new item added to the queue will always be put at the top of this list. This is suitable if we are looking to make a news widget where all the latest content should be first.

However, if we wanted all new content to be shown last within our widget, then we would order it so that the most important item has the highest position (i.e. the most important is at the bottom of the list). Doing so, and then creating a widgets with reversed order will guarantee that all new content is added to the “end” of the list.
