Reorder Posts

A simple and easy way to reorder your custom post types in WordPress.

Where's the settings page?

The settings are located under Settings->Reorder Posts. Settings are optional, of course, as the plugin will work with no configuration. We consider the settings useful for only advanced users (i.e., users with coding experience).

Where is the "save" button when re-ordering?

There isn't one. The changes are saved automatically.

Do I need to add custom code to get this to work?

Yes, and no. There are many ways to retrieve posts using the WordPress API, and if the code has a menu_order sort property, the changes should be reflected immediately.

Often, however, there is no menu_order argument. In the plugin's settings, there is an "Advanced" section which will attempt to override the menu_order property. Please use this with caution.

Can I use this on a single post type?

You are able to override the post types used via a filter (see below) or navigate to the plugin's settings and enable which post types you would like to use.


add_filter( 'metronet_reorder_post_types', 'slug_set_reorder' );
function slug_set_reorder( $post_types ) {
    $post_types = array( 'my_custom_post_type', 'my_other_post_type' );
    return $post_types;


Does the plugin work with hierarchical post types?

Yes, but be wary that the plugin now allows you to re-nest hierarchical items easily.

Does it work in older versions of WordPress?

This plugin requires WordPress 3.7 or above. We urge you, however, to always use the latest version of WordPress.

Does this sort posts within a category (i.e., a term)?

No, but there is an add-on for this plugin called Reorder by Term you should check out.
