How to re-override the parameters of ‘orderby’ and ‘order’

Sub query

By using the ‘WP_Query’, you can re-override the parameters.

WP_Query

<?php $query = new WP_Query( array(
    'orderby' => 'ID',
    'order' => 'DESC',
) ) ?>

get_posts()

<?php $query = get_posts( array(
    'orderby' => 'title',
) ) ?>

ATTENTION: Only if you use ‘get_posts()’ to re-overwrite to the default order( orderby=date, order=DESC ), You need to use own custom parameter ‘orderby=default_date’.

<?php $query = get_posts( array(
    'orderby' => 'default_date',
    'order' => 'DESC',
) ) ?>

Main query

By using the ‘pre_get_posts’ action hook or ‘query_posts()’, you can re-override the parameters.

pre_get_posts

function my_filter( $query )
{
    if ( is_admin() || !$query->is_main_query() ) return;
    if ( is_home() ) {
        $query->set( 'orderby', 'date' );
        $query->set( 'order', 'DESC' );
        return;
    }
}
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'my_filter' );

query_posts()

<?php query_posts( array(
    'orderby' => 'rand'
) ); ?>

Reviews

Works fine!

Works fine and I haven’t noticed any distraction of wordpress functions.

Doesn’t work

After installing properly, I went under Posts and could grab the rows as supposedly to reorder them. Uninstalled it and tried another plugin. Simple Custom Post Order works like a charm.

Broken for article ordering

I downloaded this plugin specifically to reorder my 108 articles (listed across 10 pages in wp-admin). When I resort the articles by category, the plugin stops working. When I navigate to a different page of articles to try to bump an article to a different page, it doesn’t work. This renders the plugin effectively useless for reordering more than 10 articles at a time.
