In Drupal 7, I have created a view to show a list of nodes I need to sort by node authored on date.

Does anybody know how to do this?

  • Will the "Post date" field work for you? Every node has this date automatically added when first saved with this date by default. Oct 30, 2017 at 20:56

In your view, go to section: SORT CRITERIA. Add field "Content: Post date" Sort ascending or Sort descending.

Edit the View and go to (SORT CRITERIA) and Checked (Content: Post date)
