[Plugin: Custom Post Order] May not work for single categories, did not work at all for me (5 posts)

    The main description says:
    This is a simple plugin that enables users to modify the order in which posts are displayed on all pages(or in selected categories) of the blog.

    But, after installing, the description says:
    Please note: once the order has been set, the post display order will be the same anywhere in the blog; the current version does not support different display orders for different categories/pages within your blog.

    Once of these is a lie, but I'm not sure which, because clicking on the tab under tools to set the order brings up an error message. Plugin does not work in 2.7.

    First of all, thank you for taking the time to post this, and we apologize for not being able to answer this sooner.

    The previous published version of the plugin was not completely stable, and it printed a warning message only the first time the plugin was accessed from the management menu (the variables weren't properly initialized). The new version 1.0.1 can now be downloaded and it is expected to work both on 2.6 and on 2.7, without any warnings or error messages.

    Try downloading and installing the new version of plugin (the default download button will give you the new version) and please don't hesitate to make another post, should anything go wrong again.

    If any errors/warnings keep coming up, feel free to include the error/warning messages in your posts.

    Hope this helps,

    I just installed the plugin following each step of your instructions:
    However when I go to "Tools" / "Custom Post Order" I get a page with the following:
    "Not Found
    The requested URL /nottsgardens/wp-admin/custom-post-order/custom-post-order-adminfunctions.php was not found on this server."
    (Running WordPress 2.7.1.)

    Hi and sorry about that,

    There was a problem with uploading the files from the development server on the svn, which is why the code error wasn't noticed while testing.

    Try downloading and installing the plugin again (either version 1.0.1 or 1.0.2).

    Good job on the plug-in oltdev. It's really simple to use. Can you sort with a custom field though?
