This plugin is EXACTLY what I needed! I was able to rearrange my portfolio items in just a few seconds! Definitely recommend it!

Behavior is unpredictable..It won't work
By , for WP 3.5.1

I actually have tried both versions, premium and free and they won't work. You're better off just tweaking the wp_query code than using this plugin. Waste of time and money.

Great Pulgin however...
By , for WP 3.5.1

Great plugin and perfect for the job however while our site only has 10 plugins we sometimes have performance issues where the site runs and loads very slow.

Got my server company to check and the said we have alot of processes running your webspace.

Installed a plugin checker and this checked the runtime of my plugin's.

Surprisingly Post Types Order uses 54%...over half of the runtime of my plugins. If I disable this recheck and test the load time of my site it runs and loads 'much' quicker.

Having our posts in a certain order is very important however this does come at a cost, performance and speed.

Amazing Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

I upgraded to the Advanced version. I have a job with a ton of custom products in 9 separate taxonomies. The advanced version lets you sort by category, plus he added a bonus show thumbnails toggle button. The site is in Dutch, so this was an extremely helpful little touch. I can not thank you more. This plugin saved me hours and hours of work, plus my client wont be confused when he tries to add more.

Works, but customization options are too limited
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin works, but its customization options are too limited and it does not fully comply with the WordPress standards. The "minimum role" option seems to have the roles hardcoded; why not use the get_editable_roles() function for the roles, or better: use the WordPress standard. You should add a capability for managing the order (maybe even per post type) and allow it to be set per role. That's how to WP capability system works.

Also, it doesn't allow you to specify for which post types the functionality should be enabled, which is in my opinion the biggest missing feature.

Okay if your needs are simple
By , for WP 3.5.1

It is a lot of hassle to get this to work for custom post types that are not typical. For example, if you have a custom post type with no menu in the sidebar, you won't be able to re-order the items. If you assign your custom post to "show in menu" under another menu, the re-order link won't appear, and for some reason it will give you permission errors.

It seems like a great plugin if it were only more developer friendly. If it had a function like...

"get_reorder_link( $post_type );"

Then I could just fix it myself.

Finally a simple plugin to order posts that does what it's supposed to.
