This question goes with the one above – I tried using the “by” method to sort some posts by a custom field, and it worked great using this syntax:
foreach ($user->posts()->by(“reservation_fields.reservation_date”) as $reservation) { … }

However, is is possible to use that with a “DESC” order? This didn’t work:
foreach ($user->posts()->by(“reservation_fields.reservation_date DESC”) as $reservation) { … }

** Nevermind this one, I guessed and figured out that this is the proper syntax:

foreach ($user->posts()->by(“reservation_fields.reservation_date”, “DESC”) as $reservation) { … }

Testament to the intuitiveness of this framework!

Next question: How to make it order by a field numerically.

Perhaps this is documented somewhere? I couldn’t find it in the docs.

Latest From the Blog

MasterPress 1.3.6 is now available

Masterpress 1.3.6 is a compatibility release. It resolves an edge case with shared fieldsets not working for MySQL 8 when the fieldset is limited to more than 1 post type or taxonomy or excluding any post types or taxonomies.

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the WordPress.com hosted service.
