Sort Order of Posts in a Series?

I'm a bit surprised about the (in a timeline) 2nd post Blogging About My Repositories to Guide Interest being the first in the generated list of posts. Any hints to fix this?

Maybe related to the original date of posts at the source? If that, it might be a worthwhile feature to allow explicit ordering (series: #«PRIO» «TITLE», with prio defaulting to the UNIX timestamp used currently), or else sort by order of publishing on dev.to instead of any sources.

I'm a bit surprised about the (in a timeline) 2nd post Blogging About My Repositories to Guide Interest being the first in the generated list of posts. Any hints to fix this?

I suspect the reason being that the second one is an imported from Feb 21, 2020 even though it was published Mar 21, 2020 and the one that should be the first was not imported. There might be an issue with these two dates.

Could you open a bug issue on the repository? github.com/thepracticaldev/dev.to/...

I'll have a look if that's the case in the meantime.

Thank you!
