    This plugin is great, thank you for it!

    The only thing is that it doesnt recognize my special characters from the Swedish lanuage. Ö is being seen as O but its actually our last character in the alphabet and not in the middle. Is there a solution for this?

  • Hi,

    I’m not related to this plugin at all. But I deal a bit with translations, especially to Swedish.
    In most cases, sorting is done by your database, and it will use the relevant “collation” setting for this purpose.
    I’d suggest you make sure to use:
    – character encoding utf8mb4 and collation utf8mb4_swedish_ci or
    – character encoding utf8 and collation utf8_swedish_ci

    Google for tips on how to convert your database (or at least the relevant table) to this. But Be 100% sure to keep backup of your database before you try!

    Thank you so much for jumping in here Tor!

    This plugin uses the standard query sorting that is built into WordPress core. As Tor said your database collation will determine how sorting is handled for this plugin is at the mercy of your database.

    Have a great day!
