[resolved] [Plugin: Relevanssi] Sorting 'oldest to latest' does not work (6 posts)

    I'm trying to give users to sort results as follows:

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('url');?>?s=<?php echo get_search_query();?>">Relevance</a>
    <a href="<?php bloginfo('url');?>?s=<?php echo get_search_query();?>&orderby=post_date&order=desc">Newest</a>
    <a href="<?php bloginfo('url');?>?s=<?php echo get_search_query();?>&orderby=post_date&order=asc">Oldest</a>

    Relevance and Newest work fine, but Oldest does not (it produces the same results as Newest).

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in anticipation

    I just tested this on my test blog and everything worked just fine. The results come out in correct order and switch order like they should when I change the order parameter.

    The function is a bit picky, as the parameter must be exactly "asc" for it to ascending sort, anything else (even ASC or something like that) and it's a descending sort.

    So, I'm guessing that for some reason the parameter isn't being passed as it should.

    You could try adding


    after line 952, which looks like this:

    isset($wp->query_vars["order"]) ? $order = $wp->query_vars["order"] : $order = 'desc';

    Then click the link with the ascending order and see what the var_dump says.

    Thanks Mikko for getting back to me so quickly.

    I added var_dump($order); as suggested and everything worked OK.

    I guess there must have been something in my cache that was causing the problem.

    Thanks for your help.
