The New Version is Affecting the priority order

Hello I’m updating Hugo from version 0.82.0 to 0.121.1 for my project. After the upgrade, I went over every page and saw that several lists on the page had changed in order. I didn’t alter any of the page’s priority keys.

Why did this occur?, Is this a glitch?

Without detail this question is impossible to answer.

You are more likely to receive a prompt and accurate response if you post a link to your project’s Git repository.

See Requesting Help.

Let us see your code

Include a link to the source code repository of your project, because we really need the context of seeing your templates and partials to be able to help you. It is trivial to do a quick git clone on your repo, then run hugo server in your project, to help you out. On the other hand, recreating your code from screenshots, or sort of guessing at it, is not.

If you can’t share your repository for whatever reason, consider creating a dummy repo that you can share, which reproduces the problem you’re experiencing.

That’s a massive jump in versions. You should keep up with the versions in general, not just Hugo. When things start to change, you will catch them one by one if you keep up.

If you really cannot start over, you can go back to Hugo 0.82.0 and start upgrading one version at a time, check for changes in your pages. Keep repeating this cycle until you notice the change.

Example: Let’s say you notice a change with Hugo 0.91.0, visit the release page for that version and check if something is different.

Hugo is one variable in your challenge. The second variable is your theme, also worth checking out.

With that being said, something changed between your versions in how you should define orders. You can check Pages methods | Hugo for ByDate, ByTitle, whatever starts with By.
