Support » Plugin: File Away » Attachaway lists in random order

    I’ve added a bunch of media files to a page (private), and they’re displayed in the right order, but when I use the [attachaway display=”list”] shortcode, they appear in a different order. How can I order them as I would like?

    Other than that – cracking plugin!

    Many thanks,
    Steve 🙂

    Sorry! I’m buried in work at the moment, but I will get to this just as soon as I can. Top of my list for next release.

    Ah, OK – sorry for being impatient. Thank you for the plugin.

    Steve 🙂

    Sorry for the delay. This will be fixed sometime today. I’ll let you know when it’s up.

    OK. version 1.9.1 is now up, and you have two new options on the attachaway list shortcode generator. You have multiple orderby options to choose from, and the ability to choose ascending or descending order.

    Thanks very much for sorting this – I can see now that it displays nicely in alphabetical order. Is it easy to allow the order that the files are listed in on the attachment page, or does WordPress not give you that much info?

    Many thanks again for a great plugin,
    Steve

    Yeah, the “menu_order” option should do what you’re looking for.

    Ah, that’s the option which doesn’t work then.

    My shortcode is:
    [attachaway postid=”127″ orderby=”menu_order” style=”silk” display=”list” iconcolor=”red” width=”100″]

    The page in question is:
    http://www.liturgysingers.org/beverley-2014/ (I’ve removed the password for the time being)

    The order of the attachments in post 127, is listed below, but you’ll see they don’t display in that order:
    Beverley Music plans
    O where shall wisdom be found (Boyce)
    Responses (Ayleward)
    Responses (Byrd)
    Seht, er kommt mit Preis gekrönt (Handel)
    The Lord’s Prayer (Stone)
    Ave Maris Stella (Monteverdi)
    For lo, I raise up (Stanford)
    Magnificat – Short Service (Gibbons)
    Magnificat in G minor (Purcell)
    Nunc Dimittis – Short Service (Gibbons)
    Nunc Dimittis in G minor (Purcell)

    Many thanks,
    Steve

    I use attachaway in conjunction with another plugin, WP Better Attachments. On a given page, it allows you to drag and drop the attachments in the order you want them in, then if you choose “menu_order” in your attachaway shortcode, they will display in that order. See the second screenshot here for the drag+drop utility found in the metabox below the page editor, with WP Better Attachments installed:
