• I’d like to be able to specify a custom order for my CPT-onomies

    As a simple example, if I created a CPT-onomy for days of the week, I’d like to be able to order them Sunday, Monday Tuesday, etc… (as opposed to date or name order).

    I’m currently getting my terms like so:
    $days = wp_get_object_terms($post->ID, 'days', array("fields" => "all"));

    The entry for wp_get_object_terms() suggests that term_order can be supplied as a sort field. There is a term_order field in the wp_terms table, which presumably I could hook into and set my custom order using a plugin. I could then call wp_get_object_terms like this:

    $days = wp_get_object_terms($post->ID, 'days', array("fields" => "all", "orderby"=>"term_order", "order"=>"ASC"));

    However, because the taxonomies created by CPT-onomies seem to be created on-the-fly (i.e. aren’t stored in the wp_terms table), this method won’t work. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could make this happen?

    I have exactly the same problem.
    This function, using orderby and term_group or term_order, returns unexpected results : all is unordered !
    Waiting for a fix…

    I’m planning to devote a good amount of time on the plugin in the next week so, if you can be patient with me, I’ll look into it ASAP! Thanks for pointing this out!



    Thank you ! 🙂

    I have the same problem. I am not able to order it.

    As I mentioned in this thread, “Listing all custom post type items for each CPT-onomy item“, I’ve tried both of these plugins to try custom ordering a CPT-onomy, but neither seems to work: ‘Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order’ and ‘Custom Taxonomy Order NE’.

    Is there any way to get these to work for custom ordering CPT-onomies?


    Still looking for a way to custom order CPT-onomies.

    Hopefully it can be fixed to work with existing taxonomy ordering plugins.
