Support » Plugin: Author Avatars List » Sort by Last Name ignores first name when multiple same last name

  • Resolved Randy Walker

    (@randy)


    When I try to sort a list of users by last name, My name “Rxxxx Walker” (user id 103) shows up before my colleague “Mxxxx Walker” (user id 21).

    Here’s the shortcode I’m using:

    [authoravatars whitelistusers=1,7,51,21,103 user_link=authorpage display=show_name,show_biography order=last_name,asc avatar_size=175]

    When there are multiple users with the same last name, they should be sorted within last name by first name. Is there any way for these names to sort correctly?

    I assume you tried

    [authoravatars whitelistusers=1,7,51,21,103 user_link=authorpage display=show_name,show_biography order=”last_name,first_name” asc avatar_size=175]

    I will need to look at the code to see if this works or not

    Hi Paul,

    I just tried that and it did not work. Is it possible to manually specify the order? That’d be fine too.

    I have made an update for you to try

    https://github.com/pbearne/wp-author-avatars/archive/master.zip

    I added an option to the sorts last_first_name what this does is it does 2 sorts first by the first name and then my last name so if I have got the logic right that should do what you need

    Please test

    Thanks for looking into this! I did this:

    [authoravatars whitelistusers=1,7,51,21,103 user_link=authorpage display=show_name,show_biography order="last_first_name" asc avatar_size=175]

    It still shows me, R, before her, M.

    Your logic described above sounds backwards to me. Sort last name then within last name, sort first name is how I imagine it going but maybe I just misunderstood what you wrote?

    I hadn’t spotted that you are using a whitelist try recording the ids it overrides the sort

    I have several dozen users and need to display only these 5, in order. 🙁

    Are you sorted when you changed the whitelistusers order

    [authoravatars whitelistusers=1,103,21,7,51 user_link=authorpage display=show_name,show_biography order=”last_first_name” asc avatar_size=175]

    Changing the order of users in the whitelist does not have affect the output 🙁

    Since it’s just 5 for now, I ended up just putting [show_avatar] on the page 5 times. Not the best solution but it works for now.
