Support » Plugin: Posts Order » Add zero to single digit values in Sort field

  • Hi! I love this plug-in and it works great for ordering the posts the way I want them to appear in the category posts. I am creating an index page and using the Sort_# field as the orderby field…but because the field values don’t include a leading “0” for the single digit values, my posts appear out of order in the index: 0, 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

    Is there a way to edit so that values 1-9 are numbered 01, 02, 03, 04 etc? I’ve edited some manually to include the zero and it seemed to work, but is very tedious. Thank you!

  • You don’t need to do it.
    Include this in your query:

    'meta_key' => 'sort_'.$categoryID,
    'orderby' => 'meta_value_num'

    (replace $categoryID by the category ID you are ordering)
