FAQ

How to enable sorting for posts/pages and taxonomies with this plugin?

On settings page you can select posts/pages and taxonomies to enable sorting.

Can users be sorted with this plugin?

Yes, you can sort. And there is a shortcode to list users under taxonomy, terms and children. [WPSO_USERS slug=”taxonomy or term slug” id=”taxonomy or term id”]. This shortcode will list users on front-end with your sorted order. No need to write another query for it.

How to re-override the parameters of ‘orderby’ and ‘order’

By using the ‘WP_Query’, you can re-override the parameters.

    {
    if ( is_admin() || !$query->is_main_query() ) return;
    if ( is_home() ) {
    $query->set( ‘orderby’, ‘date’ );
    $query->set( ‘order’, ‘DESC’ );
    return;
    }
    }

Este plugin no necesita conocimiento ya que en una pagina encuentras todos los lugares donde quieres habilitar la función de ordenar, simplemente arrastrando la línea a la posición en la lista que desees. Muy bueno!!!

I was looking for a plugin to automatically sort the order of columns. This is not that plugin. Instead, it enables an ability to easily drag and drop the order of entries in the column. It's a great tool if you wish to manually control the order of your posts, pages, etc.

After trying about a dozen different post ordering plugins to help me sort the Topics custom post type in a LearnDash course, this was the one that finally did it!
