PostMash Custom – custom post order


Posts are usually listed in reverse chronological order as they are often used for posting regular time-orientated content.

PostMash Custom lets you customise the order your posts are listed in using a simple Ajax drag-and-drop administrative interface, both regular posts and custom post types, with filtering for both standard taxonomy and custom taxonomies. Plus it gives quick access to toggle posts between draft and published states. Particularly useful if you’re using WordPress as a CMS.

The original postMash plugin and author:,
postMash (filtered):


Currently only available in english.


  • Change order by dragging posts up/down.
  • From the filtering screen.


None of it’s working

The most likely cause is that you have another plugin which has included an incompatible javascript library onto the postMash admin page.

Try opening up your WP admin and browse to your postMash page, then take a look at the page source. Check if the prototype or scriptaculous scripts are included in the header. If so then the next step is to track down the offending plugin, which you can do by disabling each of your plugins in turn and checking when the scripts are no longer included.

Do I need any special code in my template

Yes, by default posts are shown in reverse chronological order, to show the posts in the order you set in postMash you will need to use different code to display your posts. Look in the install section for an example.

Which browsers are supported

Any good up-to-date browser should work fine. Tested in Firefox, IE7, Safari and Opera.
