    I am using the List category posts plugin which is great. My post title consist of first and last names.. I was wondering if there is anyway that I can get this plugin to list my post alphabetically by last name instead of the "orderby=title" which list the post by the first letter of the post title.

    Thanks for any help.

    Is this even possible without identifying which word is the first name, which word is the second name? How are you identifying that the first word in the title is the first name, and the second word in the title is the last name? And what if you have a middle name in the title as well?

    I'm a new user to this plugin as well, and not a very technical person, so I can't suggest a highly technical solution. However, there seems to be a way to sort by tag. You can probably tag your posts with "lastname firstname", and then have this plugin sort by the tag, ordered by ASC or DESC

    I take my suggestion back. Doesn't allow for sorting by Tag.

    I wonder what the sort by Name is? it says it's a way to sort it by stub. I don't know what a post's stub is.

    In any case, you still have the issue of identifying which word in the titles is a firstname, which one is a second name... which one to ignore (middle name, or nickname)

    I will let you know if I figure something out.
