Support » Plugin: Custom Checkout Fields for WooCommerce » Priority (Order) Not Working in WordPress 5.4.2 WooCommerce 4.0.1

  • Resolved own3mall


    Hi All,

    When I change the value for the “Priority (i.e. order)” in the custom checkout field settings, nothing changes. It appears that the ordering doesn’t work?

    I set it to -1 hoping it would move the field up, but it didn’t. The default value of 0 puts the custom field at the end of the configured section. I set the priority to 10, and that didn’t move the field up either.

    Does anyone know how to get the ordering to work properly? We’re ready to purchase the pro version of this plugin if this issue is fixed.

    If anyone else has a similar question – this is only related to the fields in “Order notes” section. Default WooCommerce “Order notes” field doesn’t have the priority set, so to enable ordering, you have to enable the “Force fields sort by priority” checkbox in “WooCommerce > Settings > Custom Checkout Fields > General > Advanced Options”. And to put your field before the default “Order notes” field, you need to set your custom field priority to a negative number, e.g. -1.

    P.S. You also need to update the plugin to the latest v1.4.1, as there was a bug in the “Force fields sort by priority” option in earlier plugin version.
