    Re-order does not appear for custom post types defined by using the 'Types' plugin http://wp-types.com/documentation/

    So any ideas on why it does not work with Types? Types is free maybe you guys could see what is wrong. Is Types not defining something?

    I got this sorted. I will post the reply from the makers of Types in case it is of use to others.
    The problem as explained by wp-types is this.....
    "The Re-Order option isnt added to Pages or to any other hierarchical custom type."

    I had no idea what hierarchical custom type meant so I asked which led to a 1 checkbox solution! Thanks to Caridad at the ICanLocalize forum (makers of Types)...

    "WordPress stores everything in the posts table: posts, pages and custom types. When you create a custom type (or custom post type, its the same) you get the chance to define it hierarchical or not. Post Types Order plugin works with non-hierarchical post types.

    For example, pages are hierarchical: they have parents and can be displayed in a tree structure. And posts are not: they have no parents and we list them one after the other.

    Edit your custom type and you will see a 'hierarchical' checkbox that you need to uncheck for the 'Post Types Order' plugin to add a 'Re-order' option to the menu."

    Thanks for sharing with us.
    That's true, the free version of this plugin does not support hierarchical custom post types, so you just need to update hierarchical parameter to false where the custom type is implemented.

    Apologies for off-topic, but is there a paid version? Where can I see the feature set? I'd potentially be willing to pay for it depending on what the feature set and the license arrangement is (planning to use it on a customized WP install for a client).

    Edit: found it, thanks.
