So, today I learned that Ruhoh orders posts in alphabetical order. And according to the documentation, it is a simple thing to change that behaviour. I have added this to the config.yml for the collection “posts”:

		"sort" : ["date", "desc"]

But nope. Does still order alphabetical.

The solution

I had disabled local file backups in gedit at some point, because it would also show posts with .md~ ending. What I didn’t notice was, that I had a backup of the config.yml and ruhoh is parsing the config.yml~ file too!

The fix:

rm config.yml~
