Why should you create a custom post order?

Many WordPress sites grow over time and with it the number of posts, pages, products, etc. It can be difficult to find the right content that is related to each other if you use the default order by publication date from WordPress. A custom order of posts – whether it’s a post order, a custom page order, a custom product order, or a custom post type order – can help you organize your content in a more intuitive way that helps you find your content more simply and quickly.

Can I sort my taxonomies, e.g. list of categories for posts, too?

No, we only support the reordering of post types and not taxonomies. If you need even more structure because you have hundreds of categories, our plugin Real Category Management might be the solution for you. It structures your content into folders and gives you the possibility to arrange the folders.

Real Custom Post Order allows you to drag and drop posts to reorder them on the front, instead of sorting them by date. It's easy to understand and use. It's clean and simple and not filled with a bunch of "go pro" nagging. It works with Admin Columns 🙏 Support is quick and helpful. We've just got full PHP 8.1 support within hours after posting a ticket. I highly recommend Real Custom Post Order to anyone needing that feature.
