    I have just tagged version 6.6.8 so you can download it from the plugin page: Just scroll down to the Previous Versions section.

    I also looked at the code to try and understand why the Simple Custom Post Order mode is not working anymore, but am not seeing anything obvious. I also ran a quick test in 6.6.9 to set my sort mode to use SCPO and tried moving the links around, and the sort order I set in the admin was reflected on my site…

    I just published 6.6.10 and retested the Simple Custom Post Order integration and it seemed to work correctly. Are you sure that the SCPO plugin is working correctly? Are you able to drag-and-drop links in the admin section?

    Perhaps run a quick database query to check what is the menu_order field set to for the links you have. That is the field that SCPO sets when you re-order links around. Have you recently added new links without trying to reorder the list. I am not sure how the plugin deals with newly creating links since I think that it only updates the order when you drag-and-drop items in the list of posts / links.

    Thank you for your reply and Information. SCPO plugin don’t work. Finaly I swaped to an other PlugIn Post Types Order. It works well.

    Backend works well. Drag-and-drop links in the admin section = Perfekt.

    Library Settings | Links | Link Results Order
    does not work
    <option value="scpo">Order specified using Simple Custom Post Order plugin</option>

    interim solution:
    I use the option Order by publication date
    Change the timestamp in admin section for an Ordered Listing

    If SCPO was not working and you switched to another plugin to order custom posts, the data it stores for the order is probably different than SCPO. Thus it is normal that it does not work as expected.

    What was the issue with SCPO? Did you try contacting that plugin’s author? I can’t really start supporting a bunch of different ordering plugins.

    Checked some Releases:
    New Link library Version 6.6.11 and SCPO Version 2.5.0
    works well.
    SCPO 2.5.6 obviously does not (yet) support WP 5.5.1 variable ordered List. Wrong query assigned?

    The latest SCPO version is 2.5.1, not 2.5.6. Are you sure you have the right plugin installed? If you have another plugin with a similar name, it’s not the right one.

    I have version 2.5.1 installed on my test site with the latest version 6.6.12 of Link Library and it works correctly.

    If you do have 2.5.1 and it’s not working for it, it is possible that the new version has a conflict with another plugin on your site.

    SCPO 2.5.1 sorry.
    Downloaded the source code for checking whats wrong. Will inform you.
    Thank you!

    If you want to investigate yourself, I would check two things:

    – Open your browser dev tools and look at the Console to see if you have any Javascript errors

    – Enable your site’s WP_DEBUG and WP_DEBUG_LOG variables in wp-config.php. Disable WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY. That way, errors will be stored in a file on your site and not appear to visitors.
