WP as CMS – posting without chronological order

aStickyPostOrderER : Plugin To Change WordPress Post Order (at WordPress Plugins):

“lets you customize the order in which posts are displayed per category, per tag, or over-all, in WordPress 2.3+ blog. Now with category or tag based meta-stickiness!”
Background – I created this plugin to solve the cahallenge posed by non-trivial ordering of posts when using WordPress as a Content Management System(C.M.S.) at David Krut Publishing.
There we use a single WordPress install to run both the news and blog sections as well as a bookshop catalog – for news items the default reverse chronological order is perfect but in the case of books there are issues other than date of uploading to the site that should determine the prominence the particular ‘post’ about a book is given on the site. This plugin allows manulally configuring the order posts appear in when viewing a specific category – with ordered posts apearing first followed by the rest in their usual order without braking the default WordPress pagination.”

An example site (from the WP-Hackers mail list) is http://www.springsresorts.com.au/
