    on line 631

    I’m using Advanced Post Types Order v2.5.4.9 with WP 3.9.1.

    • nspcode

      It appear you use a very old version which was released more than 18 months ago 🙂 Can you please update to latest?
      The version you currently run does not support auto-updates, you should update manually.

        Hello! I’m having the same issue…

        Notice: Undefined index: ignore_sticky_posts in /websitepath/wp-content/plugins/advanced-post-types-order/include/functions.php on line 602

        I’m using WordPress Version 3.9.1, Advanced Custom Fields Version 4.3.8 (Both are the most recent versions)

        Have you arrived at a solutions that I can piggyback off of?

        • nspcode

          Hello

          The same as Donna, you use an older plugin version which produce this notice along with the latest WordPress. This has been fixed long time ago, so please make sure you update to latest plugin code which currently is 3.1.4

  • Thanks! Because it didn’t tell me it needed update, I had just assumed that it was the latest version.

    hi…

    i cant Hierarchically order posts/pages after update

    do you have any idea about this ?

    • nspcode

      Hi
      If the post type is not hierarchically enabled, you can’t do that. If you think this is a mistake, please contact us and we will check into it.

  • nspcode

    The best would be to use the contact form as someone is always checking the e-mails, meaning you will get assistance right away.

    Hi. Updating manually from 2.5.4.9 to latest. Just to make sure… just delete the old plugin and reinstall the new one fresh? It won’t affect any of the exiting orders?

    • nspcode

      Hi
      Migrating from version 2 to 3 series, will not lose any previous sort. Replacing the old files will work fine.

  • Nikunj

    I am using free version of plugin but after some number of post the reorder option is automatically hidden.so is this problem is also occurring in paid version on plugin ?

    • nspcode

      Not sure why i’s hiding the menu for you, however the paid version will work fine as It contain a different code and approaches.

(i guess on the database?) any way to make it work on my new site without having to redo the orders?

  • nspcode

    If the “numbers” are post meta (custom fields) then Yes, you will be able to sort using the automatic functionality. You may want to check with this article http://www.nsp-code.com/how-to-order-wordpress-posts-using-a-custom-field-value/

    Hey.
    It seems your documentation is a little outdated. I could use an up-to-date example of http://www.nsp-code.com/advanced-post-types-order-api/filter-applying-a-different-sort-for-certain-sections-queries/
    Specifically, i’m looking for a way to make wp_query / get_posts queries manually for a manually ordered custom post list with a certain post type and taxonomy.

    • nspcode

      Hi,

      The filter, description and examples at the link are still available and functional up to latest plugin version.

      As alternative you can use the apto/get_orderby filter which use the following arguments:
      $new_orderBy
      $orderBy
      $sort_view_id
      $query

      This may better match your need, as you can check against the sort_view query rules (post type and taxonomies) and apply custom code.

      If you can’t figure out, get in touch with us through Contact, and we will assist.

    We bought the Advanced version and is very useful for us.
    We use it to set the order of images in Master Slider and Essential Grid Post.
    With Essential Grid Post but have a small problem:
    – When we create a grid of one category, the order established by Re-order works perfectly for that category.
    – If we make a grid of several categories, the applied order is the file set order. But when filtering, maintains that order. It no uses the particular order of each category.

    Is there any way to set a specific order for each category within a Grid?
    I know this is a fairly unique case, but our web needs it.
    If there is no such possibility, it would be a good improvement for future updates 😉

    Greetings and congratulations for your work.

    • nspcode

      Hi,
      Not sure what kind of filter your code use, but if it’s an AJAX or new page it should work fine. We had sent a reply to your other message, someone will check into this for you.

      Thanks

        Thank you,
        I do not know which is the best way to communicate with you. I reply you by mail. ¿ok?

        • nspcode

          Yes, the fastest way would be through contact form / email.

    I am wondering if there are speed issues with using the plugin? I noticed when I turn the plugin off my site speeds up a fair amount. Though I am not sure if it would also be that another plugin is causing the issue too.

    • nspcode

      There shouldn’t be any speed difference at all, at least not in a way you can observe. Dis you created tons of sorts?
      Please consider to send a support request through contact, someone will check into this for you.

    I’m upgrading from regular Post Types to Advanced Post Types and in the process losing my initial order. Is there an export method or is there a different process I should be following to retain the current order? Thanks!

    • nspcode

      Hi,
      The order should be preserved for Archive (as this is the only type of sorting the free plugin can handle). If for some reason that doesn’t happen, please get in touch through contact and we’ll check it further.

      Thanks

      • asif

        Hey @nspcode:disqus thanks for getting back to me. Do we need to turn off the reg Post Types plugin before activating the Advanced Post Types plugin, or should be activate our Advanced plugin while the regular one is still on? Will either make a difference? We’re trying to backtrack and see where we went wrong. Thanks again!

        • nspcode

          Hi,
          Actually it doesn’t matter, if the free plugin is still active, when activated the paid code it will de-activate the other one automatically.

          Thanks
