Support » Plugin: DearFlip - WordPress 3D Flipbook, PDF Flipbook » Sequencing files withing Categories

    I am using categories to organize pdf files by year on a single WordPress page.

    • 2020 2019 2018 … 2004
    • Within each year(category) there will be 2-6 files that can be identified by month.
      Is there a way to sequence the pdf files when displayed by category?
      They do not seem to be sequenced by id or by name.

      Also I am very impressed with this plug-in. You might consider setting up a donation page for organizations that cannot afford a subscription, but might be able to make a donation to help support your activities.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi,

    Thanks for your interest in the plugin.

    The sequence or sorting is based on the last publish date the default what WordPress uses.
    What kind of sorting you thunk can be beneficial?

    Regarding, non-profit organizations, we are in the process of switching from codecanyon and will be able to provide custom licensing from 27th August from our site.
    Please apply for non-profit, attribution discount support@dearhive.com

    This lite version is also capable enough for your purpose, which feature do you seek from premium version?

    Best,

    Thank you for the very quick response and explaining how wordpress handles items e.g. last published date. (I am inexperienced)
    Now that I understand the method of sequencing, I can update the files so they appear in the order I wish.
    As to suggestions for the premium version, the ability to sequence by file title would be of benefit to some. In my case, I am able to name files by year, number of month and append the name of the month “2004-01 January” which would allow them to appear in sequence by month.
    An alternative would be to allow sequencing by id which is controllable by the user, but that would be very similar to date published.
    Again thank you.

    HI,

    Yes, id and date published are the same and are default.
    We will consider adding the name sort.

    Have a good day and stay safe,
