Multiple Post Type Order

Description

This plugin helps to generate multiple re-ordering interface for your post types as well as custom post types as many times as you required for your custom development. With such a custom ordering facility, it will be much faster and easier for the crawlers to generate multiple ordering for same post types as well as individual post types.

This plugin development aims to get solutions when you want to display custom ordering for one post-type i.e. HomePage AND custom ordering for same post-type i.e. on Custom Post Page with the help of query code in your custom templates.

In order to configure settings, navigate to [ WordPress Admin -> Settings -> Multiple Post Types Order ], where you can see two options:

  1. Show/Hide Re-Ordering Interface for Post Types
  2. No of times Re-Ordering required

After configuring your settings, “MPT Order #” will be displayed on your desired post types and under it, you can drag and drop Re-Order by your Post Titles, hit ‘Save’ and click on Display Query Code. You can use this Query code in your custom templates and customize look-n-feel and your desired result will be displayed.

Example Display Query Code:

<?php $data = new WP_Query( 
                    array(  'post_type' => 'post', 
                            'post_status' => array( 'publish'),
                            'posts_per_page' => -1, 
                            'orderby' => 'meta_value_num', 
                            'meta_key' => 'custom_order_type_snv_1', 
                            'order' => 'ASC',   
                    )); ?>
<?php while ( $data->have_posts() ) : $data->the_post(); ?>
<?php the_title(); ?>
<?php endwhile;?>
<?php wp_reset_query(); ?&gt;

[mpto post_type='post' meta_key='custom_order_type_snv_1']
