Support » Plugin: Custom Post Type UI » Drag n drop ordering of custom posts

  • Resolved Elzette Roelofse



    I have to make changes to a site that I did not develop…
    I’ve noticed in a custom post type created by your plugin there is a move cursor when I hover over the custom post. But when I move a custom post up or down, the admin loading icon show, but it never saves the new position.

    Is there a way to re-arrange posts in admin, using this plugin to register posts?

    Appologies if this has been discussed on this forum before. I’ve searched, but could not find anything.

    Thank you in advance. 🙂

    CPTUI does not offer any post rearrangement functionality, so this is probably coming from a different plugin installed in the site. I imagine whatever is offering it, doesn’t necessarily care/worry how the post type is registered, meaning via a different plugin or via your theme, etc to offer its own functionality.

    I would check over what else is installed and see if anything stands out, and reach out to their support regarding why things don’t save like expected.

    Thank you for your quick response.
    This is very helpful.
    All the best.

    Welcome Elzette 🙂

    Hi Michael,

    So it is not possible to display the custom posts in alphabetical order on the site?

    Love to hear from you.

    @jannnnnneke it definitely is, through various ways, but it takes some extra coding and such that CPTUI doesn’t offer at all with what is in our released plugin.

    While not likely going to be exactly what you need, an example for the main page and the “post” post type can be seen at It’s an amendable code snippet that can be made to work with just post type archives as well, as a heads up.
