Support » Plugins » re order custom query by meta_value

  • i’m using “types plugin” creating child related posts with the main ones.
    and trying now to re-order these posts according to ‘meta_value’ but it does nothing!

    here is my code:

    <?php
        $child_posts = types_child_posts('features', array('order' => 'DESC', 'meta_key' => 'order', 'orderby' => 'meta_value meta_value_num', 'suppress_filters' => true )) ;
        foreach ($child_posts as $child_post) {
    		echo $child_post->fields['order'];
    		echo '<h4>'.$child_post->post_title.'</h4>';
         }?>

    'order' or 'wpcf-order'
    not working and cause a blank page!

    any ideas ?

    thanks

  • Hi John did you manage to every get this right? im stuck at this same point, and any help would be much appreciated.

    Sorry waynmeyer couldn’t find any way to make it work even the plugin’s support didn’t help!
    mostly the function ‘types_child_posts’ does not support orderby .
    I turned over that through adding a number in beginning of the title and hide it using css ‘text-indent’ , as the function sorting alphabetically. It’s not a very practical solution but it may help if you have a small number of posts!
