Post Types Order
[resolved] Final 139 items scrambled with 1094 posts total (5 posts)

    Hello,

    Thank you for this plugin, which I use on my website here:
    http://philipharland.com/greco-roman-associations/

    Basically, I am using your plugin to reorder things by region, then city, then date within each city. The plugin was working well until recently, when the total number of items went above 1000 posts.

    The first 955 posts are still in the proper order and can be reordered. However, any of the other posts are now scrambled out of order and they cannot be moved into the correct order. When I use the "reorder" page and drag and drop, the order then temporarily shows up correctly there, but the actual order of posts is not changed. When I attempted to reorder all 139 of the scrambled ones, they were simply re-scrambled when I returned to the "reorder" page.

    Is there a limit of 1000 posts that can be reordered and, if so, can this be increased? What may be causing this problem with about 139 posts not being able to be put in order.

    Thanks so much for any help.

    Hello Phil,
    This appear to be a server limitation, you may want to try and increase the allocated memory see this post at http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP or contact your server admin on how to do that.
    Or you can consider upgrading to Advanced Post Types Order plugin which incorporate a customized code for that area to allow allot more posts to be ,anaged (> 50000) using the same amount of memory.

    Thanks

    Hello nsp-code,

    I have contacted my provider and they clarified that there is already plenty of space alotted for PHP: 128 MB of memory allocated to PHP scripts. (Or were you saying that 128MB is not enough?).

    What else could be causing the scrambling of the final 100 or so posts and my inability to reorder any of them? I had already paid for and tried the advanced version (back when I first started), but it actually scrambled things as well and didn't work properly with my blog. So I have paid for it, I'm just not using it (it's sitting in my plugin area). If I re-install the advanced one, I'm afraid that it will once again scramble all the ones that are in the correct order (about 1000 items take some time to reorder).

    So could you please help me get this working again?

    Thanks for any help.
    Phil

    Hello again,

    I have just doubled the PHP memory to 256MB and the problem remains. So this does not seem to be related to the memory.

    Please help (again: I have paid for the advanced version but found it didn't work well for sorting).

    Thanks.

    Hello Phil,
    As discussed through a separate message the Advanced Post Types Order did not encounter this limitation.

    As for the free version, to help others with similar problem, if the memory increase did not solved the issue, you should try and increase the max_input_vars which affect the parse_str php function.

    Thanks
