Support » Everything else WordPress » I’m receiving plugin suggestions!

  • Good day to you all!

    It’s very simple: I’m planning to develop a WordPress plugin as a part of a larger project I’m doing together with a group of my friends.

    I wanted to let people say what they need – if there’s interest – and develop a plugin that does just that.

    Therefore, if you have any suggestions, please free to send them to me @ I will be sure to post all the suggestions both here and on my site as they come in, and report the winning one.

    Thank you all,

  • A small bump (hope no-one will mind); I’ll keep this open for another week. Hurry! 😉

    It might be worth posting in the “Plugins and Hacks” section of the WordPress forums as well 🙂

    On an additional note, a catchier title might be a good idea (I just saw the post in the Plugins/Hacks section) since “I’m receiving plugin suggestions!” could also indicate that you might be looking for plugins rather than offering to develop one.

    Kindly take a look at this suggestion:

    If such a plugin doesn’t already exist, it would make a hit plugin. 🙂

    I need a plugin — or even just the right code! — to sort by custom fields.

    Currently I have code on my category page that lets the user sort by title, newest, oldest and I want to add the ability to sort by a custom field of “rating”.

    Here is the code I have now. Can you expand it to include custom fields?

      $order = "&orderby=cost&order=DESC";
      $s2 = ' selected="selected"';
      if ($_POST['select'] == 'title') { $order = "&orderby=title&order=ASC"; $s1 = ' selected="selected"'; $s2 = ''; }
      if ($_POST['select'] == 'newest') { $order = "&orderby=cost&order=DESC"; $s2 = ' selected="selected"'; }
      if ($_POST['select'] == 'oldest') { $order = "&orderby=cost&order=ASC"; $s3 = ' selected="selected"'; $s2 = ''; }
    <form method="post" id="order">
    	Sort by:
    	<select name="select" onchange='this.form.submit()'>
    		<option value="title"<?=$s1?>>Title</option>
    		<option value="newest"<?=$s2?>>Newest</option>
    		<option value="oldest"<?=$s3?>>Oldest</option>
