The default order in Tettra is by most recently updated, but you may choose to order by priority, or suggested reading order, etc.
All pages with a folder can be ordered in any way you choose from the folder view. To reorder a page, simply click on the drag handle (9 dots icon) on the left of the page title, and drag into the order that you would like.
Here is a demo gif:
This order will be reflected in all views of the folder, including the page side-bar. Once you set a custom order for the folder, new pages will automatically be appended to the bottom of the list.
