Q2W3 Post Order

Description

This plugin is a descendant of a well known AStickyPostOrderER.
Because it was not updated for a long time I decided to make an upgrade.

Note! Original AStickyPostOrderER must be deactivated before Q2W3 Post Order installation!

The main changes are:

  • Since version 1.1.0 added ability to stylize ordered posts (see FAQ for details)
  • Plugin was completely rewritten
  • Now you can change order of posts for custom taxonomy and custom post type archive pages
  • Removed Meta-Stickiness options – the plugin became lighter, faster and easier to use
  • Added support for internationalization
  • Advanced uninstall
  • Plugin settings page was moved from Tools to Settings section

Supported languages:

Screenshots

  • List of taxonomy terms
  • List of posts
  • Screen Options panel

Installation

Deactivate AStickyPostOrderER plugin if you have it installed.

Then follow standard WordPress plugin installation procedure.

FAQ

How to enable custom taxonomies and custom post types?

Open plugin setting page. Look in upper right corner of the screen, there is a Screen Options dropdown panel.
There you can enable/disable custom taxonomies and post types.

How to stylize ordered posts?

For each ordered post two css classes are set: q2w3-post-order and q2w3-post-order-{n}, where {n} is post position number.
Use q2w3-post-order css class to set general style for ordered posts.
Use q2w3-post-order-{n} to set unique style for specific post position.
Note! You have to use <?php post_class(); ?> template tag in your theme.

How to remove posts from sorted list?

Enter position number 0 for selected post, then click Update Sorted.

How to disable plugin for feeds, pages and custom queries?

You can add a parameter q2w3-post-order=disable to the url.
For example example.com/feed/?q2w3-post-order=disable – your main feed post order will not be modified.

If you use custom queries: query_posts('cat=13&showposts=10&q2w3-post-order=disable');.

Array style: query_posts(array('cat'=>13,'showposts'=> 10,'q2w3-post-order'=>'disable'));.
