I have not seen any recent reviews, so thought I'd add one. Been looking for a solution to the WP standard ordering by date. Only a couple of plug-ins around. The other one sort-of worked, but this one beats it and does it beautifully. This is because the ordering is separate from the main post listing. Here I had nearly 200 posts to sort, and getting them in one simple listing made it so easy. Many, many thanks, much appreciated, and that you keep it updated too, Robin
I first started using Order Your Posts Manually in January 2016. As of June 2, 2018, when I am editing this review, I am now using this wonderful plugin on four of my WordPress sites. The ability to move a later posted post to an earlier position in a blog index would seem to me to be a feature that would already be included in WordPress. But it is NOT. I could not figure out how to control post positions in indexes until I discovered the elegant and effective Order Your Posts Manually. Furthermore, when I had a special request about functionality, Order Your Posts Manually support responded swiftly with the perfect solution. This is now an essential tool in my WordPress toolbox. Order Your Posts Manually rocks!!!
Very interesting plugin. Just what I was looking for. Very, very cool! I wanted to get a few Stickys in a certain order on the front page, and this did the trick. Here's what happened though at first. Initially upon install, you try to convince us saying, "If you belong to the second category (MODIFICATION date) select the second option in the first drop down box below!" So I did that. And, the plugin didn't do what it's supposed to do. I went back into settings and changed it back to "Creation Date" and while I was there, I went to the option to let the "Editor" make changes, and it DID work. There are no other users in the Admin, so I thought, hey, why not tell it I'm an editor. And BAM, it worked great! Very cool plugin, and VERY unique in the sea of plugins, I love it. I'm one of those that do not care (as you warn) about the date of posts, my only curiosity will be about SEO - and even then I don't much care as I'm tending to my sitemap and traffic in different ways. Curious though what the SERPS will do with this kind of database tinkering. Who knows, it might help in a weird way on front pages when the spiders come to scroll canonically. Any thoughts on SEO repercussions or ramifications? LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! The drag and drop is seamless and genius. Good work!
Simple and works. 5 star from me. One suggestion though: I had to make this available to "Editors" too as it is only available for "Administrators". So i had to change just one line of code. I hope next version has some checkboxes with the roles of users where you want this plugin to be available. p.s. if you want to make it available to Editors too, edit the order-your-posts-manually.php file and just change the add_management_page(__('Order Your Posts Manually','order-your-posts-manually'), __('Order Your Posts Manually','order-your-posts-manually'), 'manage_options','opm-order-posts.php', array( &$this, 'opm_list_posts')); to add_management_page(__('Order Your Posts Manually','order-your-posts-manually'), __('Order Your Posts Manually','order-your-posts-manually'), 'edit_others_posts','opm-order-posts.php', array( &$this, 'opm_list_posts')); as you can see the only difference is the 'manage_options' that is being changed to 'edit_others_posts'. Simply put, that defines what users are able to work with this plugin. The people that have 'manage_options' privileges are the administrators. The people that have 'edit_others_posts' are the editors. Similarly it may work with less-privileged users such as authors and contributors-haven't tested it though. Needless to say the above code modification is not officially supported and it will not persist if you apply an update or something. So use it at your own risk.
SO I HAD https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-types-order/ AND IT WORKED GREAT FOR MY PREVIOUS PAGE AND NEXT PAGE BUT I ALSO HAVE https://wordpress.org/plugins/content-views-query-and-display-post-page/ WHICH IS AMAZING BUT WHEN I USED THE FIRST PLUGIN IT SCREWED WITH MY SORT ORDER IN MY CONTENT VIEWS. BUT THEN YOUR PUGIN I INSTALLED IT AND CHOOSE SETTING USE CREATION DATE AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY GOT TO SORT MY POST AND DIDN'T MESS UP MY POST ORDER ON MY CONTENT VIEWS PAGE. THANK YOU! IT IS PERFECT. PS NOT SCREAMING JUST TO LAZY TO UNDO THE CAPS
