[resolved] Get posts by category does not honor sort by publish date (6 posts)

    In your plugin, when I select: Select a taxonomy: > Categories > Check off a category and also choose: Order posts by: Publish Date, then the posts shown are in the correct category but are listed in alphabetical order. If I do not limit by taxonomy at all, then the posts show up in the correct date order, but I need both to work.

    Hi Mizziness,

    Sorry you're having trouble. I'm not sure what the trouble might be here. Just for testing, have you tried reversing the Order: Ascending to Descending or vise-versa?
    Also, have you tried the Ignore sticky posts option? It shouldn't matter, but it's worth trying in this case. Finally, does this happen if you try a different taxonomy (such as Tags)?

    Yup, I've done both, actually. Neither ASC or ignoring stickies helps the issue.

    For tags, only the first tag I select brings back any results. Those work fine, but selecting multiple tags doesn't show their respective matches, only the first tag chosen does.

    Hmm... That is strange indeed.

    Is the site located online somewhere where you could provide me a username & password so I could take a look? If that's a possibility, follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/dpellenwood and I'll follow you back so you can message me the details.

    Sorry for the continued troubles.

    Since this post hasn't had a response in 2 weeks, I'm going to mark it as resolved. Feel free to get back to me if you'd still like additional help. Cheers!

    Sorry about that! No, unfortunately, I cannot give you access to the site. I also still can't get it working :(
