[Plugin: My Page Order] Subpages are not alphabetical by default (in Admin "Edit Pages") (2 posts)

    I have run into a problem and I think the effect is related to your plugin. I hope you can advise.

    I have set the order of parent pages and that works fine. However, under one of my parent pages, I have 80 child pages. When I visit the WP “Edit Pages” screen, my parent pages are in the order I set, but I need the child pages to be in alphabetical order and they are not.

    If I go to “My Page Order” and under “Order Subpages” I choose the Parent Page that has 80 child pages, I see that they are listed there in the same way they are listed in the “Edit Pages” section. I can manually order these subpages into an alphabetical listing, but I will be adding more and more of these subpages to this parent page and would rather not have to go in and rearrange this everytime I add a page.

    Is this a bug?

    Is there a way to make subpages (child pages) default to an alphabetical listing?

    I'll add what I sent you by email:

    This is a WordPress limitation. Using the built in template functions you are only allowed to set the sort method for the entire hierarchy. There's no way to specify different sort methods for each level. To get this functionality you're looking at custom development or seeing if a plugin or widget already already covers it.
