Changing the order of Page Blocks

If you have multiple Page Blocks on a page, you can re-order them to display in the order you wish. To do this, simply locate the blocks in the edit tree, then click, hold and drag them up and down to change their order. Please note that the CMS lists blocks in reverse order - meaning the block at the bottom will be the first shown on the page. Once you have re-ordered the blocks, you need to Publish the site in order for any changes to appear.
