How are promoted articles sorted on the home page of Help Center?
Help Center uses the method of "Absolute Positional Order". This means, promoted articles are sorted by the following three factors.
- The first factor is the position of the Category that the promoted article resides.
- Next, by the position of the Section that the promoted article resides.
- Lastly, by the position of the Article in its Section.
The best way to visualize this will be to go to your Help Center > Articles > Arrange articles > expand each of the Categories and Sections. This shows you how promoted articles will be listed, top to bottom.
For more information, see the article: Promoting an article to the top of the section.
