Support » Fixing WordPress » List cat/tag posts alphabetically by slug

  • Resolved TCSG


    I’m creating a site that lists resources that are referenced in a book. These resources are categorized by book chapter (category), theme (tag), timeline (tag), and also have page numbers (custom meta-box info).

    I need the posts to be displayed according to their page number whether we’re looking at them by category or tag. I could MANUALLY order them by date — but there’s A LOT of posts.

    I’ve tried looking into get_template_part() and get_post() and can’t find ways to override that in functions.php to list alphabetically.

    Any help would be appreciated!

  • Forgot to mention that the categories and tags are being listed in a widget automatically using Ultimate Tag Cloud Widget.

    You second part adds to this, also not sure which you want now, by page #, by slug, or by title??? Take a look at

    Thank you! That got me about 80% there. For the Categories I added the code that page recommended for their “Glossary” example, inserting their code into category.php, but I deleted the reference to Glossary, like so:

    // we add this, to show all posts in our
    // Glossary sorted alphabetically
    if (is_category(''))
         $posts = query_posts($query_string .
    // here comes The Loop!
    if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    Next, I needed this to work for my Tags, so I inserted the same code into tag.php, but changed the first line to if (is_tag(''))

    Works great! Thank you!
