Ordering FAQ Postings

This page lets you check the ORDER in which your FAQs will be posted by the faq-server@rtfm.mit.edu. It also allows you to REORDER them in the event you want them sent in a specific order.

ORDER

You will receive a mail message in response indicating the order in which the postings are posted.

NOTE: If the postings have never actually been posted, the ORDER command won't work. It will return an empty list of postings. Wait until the FAQ server has posted your files once, and then send the command.

REORDER
Changes the order in which a list of postings is posted by the FAQ server, subject to the restriction that a child cannot be posted before its parent (e.g., if foo/part2 is a child of foo/part1, and you specify that foo/part2 should be posted before foo/part1, the posting order of the two postings will not change).

You will receive a mail message in response indicating the new order of the postings.

NOTE: If the postings have never actually been posted, the REORDER command will still change their order, but it won't return a list indicating the new order. Also, due to the vagaries of the news system, the postings may not arrive at your site in the same order they were posted; compare the Date: headers to see the actual order.

Your Email address is required so the results can be forwarded to the right place.
