Sortable Posts

Description

Sortable Posts uses and easy to use drag and drop ui to allow users to update the order of posts and taxonomy terms. Sortable Posts automatically arranges your posts and taxonomy terms on the frontend to match the order on the backend as well.

Using Sortable Posts In Your Theme / Plugin

Sortable Posts currently allows users to add post types to the list of sortable post types and taxonomies by either adding them in the options panel or by adding them via a custom filter. Should you want to add them via a filter you can use the sortable_post_types for posts and the sortable_taxonomies filter for taxonomies.
