Post Pins Sort Order Is Unexpected


Question

Posted · Report post

I've installed Post Pins and set it to show a single category however I cannot control the sort order that posts appear. I modified the publish dates to try to control the sort order, but that didn't change anything. I also used the Post Re-order plug-in, without any impact.

How are posts ordered?

Here's my page: http://bookinwithsunny.com/book-club/bookclub/

Thanks,

TJ

Thanks for the reply. Clearing the caches did not change my view, but I think I figured out my issue. I discovered that the order is defined by the vertical axis, and I was assuming posts would sort by row (which is my preference).

So there is no problem with the sort order...it's just not what I was looking for.

Doesn't Post Pins have a sort order in the PageLines Meta Settings > Post Pins on the page? If you did not set that, try Desc.

Post Pins offers width settings, but nothing for sort order or height.

Hi,

I just tested it and yes, the order is date descending. The bottom-most post is the earliest, with the top left-most being the most recent. I'm not sure which date (there are several in the database) that Post Pins uses to determine the order. It could well be a combination of date and Post ID.

At least you know that the order isn't random.

They should be by date order, descending. But I'm curious... Do you have a cache plugin activated? If so, did you clear the cache after making changes? If not, did you clear the browser cache before trying to view the order?
