Is anyone else having issues with 'Post Types Order' Plug-in?

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi, I tried 'Post Types Order' plug-in due to recommendation on PlatformPro 1.5.3 admin page but it did not work for me. Now that I am running PageLines 2.0, it is still not working for me. I have tried deleting and downloaded a new copy and installed and activated the new copy but still no go. The 'Re-Order' option appears under everything. ie. Posts, Boxes, Banners, Features, etc., but when I click on say, Re-Order under Posts and see the graphic bars representing each of my blog posts (in the correct order), so I drag and re-order them in the order I like, Save and refresh the page, no change. I have tried with Features too, no go. I just wanted to know if it is just me OR 'Post Types Order' does NOT work with PageLines 2.0. Can someone confirm or deny? Thanks, Paul

Paul, if it did not work for you before, with 1.5x, then likely there was a plugin conflict that is causing it not to work. I don't think it's really intended for use on regular posts, particularly if you have a large number of them. However if it's not working on the feature slider, boxes, and custom post types, where it's intended to work, then clearly there's a conflict. If the same plugins are present on your site, the conflict would continue irrespective of 2.0. Try turning off your plugins other than Post Types Order and testing it to see if it works without the others. Then reactivate... test... and see which one is conflicting by process of elimination.

I've tested it on my site and we're using it on PageLines.com with no problems. This indicates that it must be a conflict.

There are several people who have Post Types Order working. Have you already tried deactivating your other plugins?

When I have a conflict like this I usually deactivate all other plugins in batches of 3-5 at a time and then activate them again one by one. This way you can see which one is causing the difficulties. When you found the one which breaks Post Types Order, go to the WP plugin repository and find a replacement. Or contact the plugin developer and ask for a solution.

@rangelone @catrina @yemoonyah, I have disabled other plug-ins and it had no effect. I only have Post Type Order plug-in active. Most recent test was re-ordering boxes. As you can see in the screen shot attached (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/267/boxesn.jpg), Box order has been 'successfully' changed in the plug-in but the reality is no change takes place. Please see http://justitia.com.au/web/people and note the boxes does not reflect the change. This site was created from scratch on WordPress 3.2.1 after purchasing PlatformPro 1.5.3 10 days ago so very few posts appear on this site. In fact, it is not a live site yet. Any ideas gurus? Paul

Post types reorder plugin does work. I use it on all of my sites with 1.5 and now 2.0. Since it did not work for you in 1.5, then you definitely have an issue of some sort. Whether it be a plugin conflict, an invalid function, incorrect CSS, something. This plugin works; I have personally used it.

You have deactivated ALL plugins, leaving only the post type order plugin enabled? If not, do that, move the boxes, and refresh your page. Another thought, do you have a caching plugin installed? Even if it's disabled, it can cause things to still cache.

Hi, All plug-ins were turned off when I tested. Only plug-ins I use are the ones that was on recommended list in Pagelines so I would assume conflict will be minimal. When that didn't work. While NO plug-ins were active, I uninstalled and reinstalled Post Type Order and activated just that. Still, no go. Odd.

Okay. In this case, we need to look into whether you have any legacy CSS or old javascripts; or, whether there's some conflict created by settings in wp-config.php. On that last point, please review that file and make sure debug is set to false. I am unsure how many items you intend to re-order, but until you've resolved this, if there are only a few items, I'd suggest considering the alternative method - using the post date to set the order. You do this by changing the time of day when the post appeared.

Hi rangelone - I don't know how to set the 'debug' to false. Also, WordPress is a fresh install with no modifications or special javascript... even if I tried, I will not be able to write a javascript. set I can do is html. :) I might let this one go for now and see if I can indeed use post date/time method or some other like that. Thank you! Paul

I haven't tried debugging to false in the wp-config.php file before but I believe you have to get into that file and change debug=true to debug=false.

Thanks Catrina. As soon as you said to open up a php file, I started to get cold sweat and my hands started to shake sooooo I might leave the debugging until I really have to do it. Thanks! Paul

I have also just come across this problem. The issue came up with the Boxes, but I can confirm that Posts are also not being re-ordered. I'm running a multisite setup on a development server with the Framework 2.0 and Wordpress 3.3. I've tried disabling all plugins with the exception of Post Types order, also tried variations of Network-wide and site-only activation.

This looks like it's one of those problems that appears obvious when you find it. After a lot of testing for plugin collisions, I don't think it's anything to do with that (in my case). I tried this both on my multisite setup and a new fresh single site. When initially configuring the plugin in Settings -> Post Types Order I had set the "Minimum level to use plugin" to "Administrator", and had un-checked "Admin Sort" as I had interpreted the description given incorrectly. If you've done the same, try checking "Admin Sort". This corrected the issue for me.

I still have problems with post type order in combination with the post navigation of Pagelines Themes. Don't know if itis related. But the post navigation is all messed up. Try and navigate backwards through these posts: http://golfclub-stippelberg.nl/2011/12/persprijs-voor-golfbaan-stippelberg/. It is driving me nuts! It is the same with all other plugins disabled.

Got this response from the plugin maker. [quote]Hello Jackey, The advanced version contain a different code which correctly return the next/previous post links in all situations. We had that issue before with the free version, the advanced post types orders works fine with Pagelines Themes. Thank you, Dan Support Department[/quote] $25 fixed it for me!

Hi Jackey, Sorry for not responding to your posts. I didn't have 'email notification' setting activated in my preferrence when someone post comment - it is set now. I'm glad the upgrade did the trick. I might give that a go, if I still need to re-order. Paul

page orderign does not work for me either in new pagelines. the control is visible at the top of posts and pages, but can not drag/ drop. in custom post types like boxes, the drag/ drop is also not visible and there is no way to reorder a box set. seems I'm not the only one with this inexplicable issue
