DOES NOT work with custom taxonomies
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin is totally incompatible with custom taxonomies, or any system that has more than one taxonomy registered. It doubles up the thets_order meta value in the database, and ignores (completely hides from the site) any terms that have the same value as another. The only solution I've been able to find is to manually update the thets_order values in the database. A possible permanent solution would be to prepend the taxonomy slug to $term_key in the-taxonomy-sort.php at line 130, so 2 items could both have the value 1 without one of them getting omitted.

I use this to sort my custom taxonomy. it works great!

the only thing i would wish for is if it could automatically select child-taxonomies when dragging

Breaks WooCommerce variations (previously: Works great for custom taxonomies)
By , for WP 4.2.1

I have to mark off a couple of stars as this plugin will break WooCommerce variations. If you try to add variations from attributes, this plugin overwrites some arguments in the query without checking the values, which makes the query always return zero results.

I believe this is because WooCommerce "attributes" are a hidden taxonomy (which is completely acceptable by the WordPress API) and so they are not sortable to begin with, and so they do not have any sorting data at all. So when you try to order items by a missing value, they don't even show up.

This plugin should not interfere with hidden taxonomies, since they can't be sorted anyway.

simple and great
