Chronological and Alphabetical Post listings within categories (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I would like to be able to offer my readers the choice of viewing posts within categories in alphabetical AND chronological order.

    Obviously not on the same page!

    I know how to create each listing but not at the same time.

    Ideally I would like a link at the top of each category listing that will change the type of display.

    Does anybody have any ideas or suggestions?

    TIA
    Philiip

    You can use custom query string (http://www.transycan.net/blogtest/2007/10/30/custom-query-string-plugin-update-for-wordpress-23/) for the chronological one, but I'm not sure about the alpahebtical one, best do a search. And I'm not sure if you could have both together unless you place the posts in 2 categories, one in chronological order with CQS and the other alphabetical.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I currently use the CQS and I didn't consider having two categories. It's a great idea, although adding 700 posts to another 4 or so categories may prove time-consuming.

    I'll look into how best to do that.

    Thanks again.

    Heya!

    I think there should be a plugin for mass adding posts to a category. Search around and I'm sure you'll find it. ^^
