  • zactoff


    After installing the Post Types Order plugin for the nth time so my clients can shuffle their pages into the order they want, I was wondering if I could make a request that this functionality is added to WordPress core.

    It seems arcane to still be using the order field, and this is certainly not easy when dealing with a lot of pages.

    I realise that this raises some issues around default ordering, but perhaps this could be dealt with by adding ‘Posts are listed by [menu order/date/title/etc.]’ and ‘Pages are listed by [menu order/date/title/etc.]’ selectors in the Settings > Reading menu. This would cover most cases and anyone capable of writing their own queries will probably know how to override this where needed.

    I think it’s probably fair to say, in my experience certainly, that WordPress is no longer primarily used as a blogging platform.
