Hi! Is it possible to adapt this code to follow the order of the posts (configured in the front-matter)?

I use this in the loop:

{%- assign sorted_posts = site.categories['category'] | sort: 'order' -%}

And this in the front-matter: sort: 57

I guess it is, you have to ask someone who is familiar with Jekyll. I haven't worked with it for almost 8 years, so I'm of no help.

Oh, ok, thank you! Later I will try to implement it.
