Our OJS used to organize properly the issues by publication dates. However, suddenly some issues broke the order regardless the date I set. No idea of what happened! Even if I create a new issue with a similar name and date, after erasing the problematic issue the problem remains.
Before debugging this in more detail, I’d strongly suggest upgrading to a newer release; OJS 22.214.171.124 is now quite old and numerous bugs have been fixed since then.

How can I get the archive of issues page to show issues in publication date order.
They have been random for a while - over several upgrades of OJS.
