Post Types Order
Seems to work, but not flexible enough (3 posts)

    The model here isn't flexible enough for what I need. Basically, this allows you to manually create a single sort order for each post type in your system.

    This creates a bunch of problems:

    For some categories of posts this would be useful. For others, I want to keep the default date ordering. As far as I can tell, this plugin forces you to sort all categories within a post type, or none.

    Also, you can't filter your view of posts while sorting them. Since I have several hundred it makes using this problematic.

    You are wrong.. the plugin does not force at all to sort all categories, it is just up to you, by using the code and specify exactly where to use the custom order, OR turn ON the Auto-sort feature which will update everywhere. I think you misunderstand the Autosort usage.
    However i regret some peoples just trow a review with a poor ratting while they are not even fully understand how it works. Doing a simple forum search would reveal the answers.

    First of all, I was looking for a plugin that would work without my coding. So for me, the observation stands. If I wanted to write code, there are all kinds of things I could have done, but that's not what I was looking for.

    Indeed, your write up makes a big deal of the fact that you don't have to write PHP to use this plugin. Nowhere do you say you have to accept a fundamental limitation by not coding, or suggest the additional features you can get by coding.

    I'm continually amazed by WordPress plugin who spend, presumably, hundreds of hours creating code and then squat-all documenting it. I spent about 90 minutes evaluating your plugin, installed it, tried to make it work on my site. Again, since I had no intention of developing code with it, I had no reason to search the forum.
