Hugo provides you with all the flexibility you need to organize how your content is ordered.

By default, content is ordered by weight, then by date with the most recent date first, but alternative sorting (by title and linktitle) is also available. The order the content would appear is specified in the list template.

Both the date and weight fields are optional.

Unweighted pages appear at the end of the list. If no weights are provided (or if weights are the same), date will be used to sort. If neither is provided, content will be ordered based on how it’s read off the disk, and no order is guaranteed.
