I’m trying to get a collection of posts, ordered by a custom field:

$deadlines = $wf->type(“production_deadline”)->by(“production_deadline_fields.deadline_date”, “ASC”);

The above code doesn’t seem to be working. I also tried this, per one of you posts from a while back:

$deadlines = $wf->type(“production_deadline”)->by(“custom_date”, “ASC”);

(and I added this to functions.php:)
class MY_Post extends MEOW_Post {
function custom_date() {
return $this->field(“production_deadline_fields.deadline_date”);

That didn’t work either, nor did a number of variations on that theme…

Can you help me figure out how to return a collection of posts of a particular post type ordered by one of its custom fields? I should also mention that the field is a DATE field…

Hey, I’ve just recreated this scenario and it seems to be working fine for me with this code:


EDIT: Sorry I had the ordering setup as DESC in this example, but they both worked fine.

Can you try that and let me know if it’s working for you?

Oddly, it isn’t much different to the code you’ve tried. Perhaps one of the field names in your code isn’t quite matching the definition correctly?

MasterPress 1.4.1 is now available

27th May 2024

This update addresses backwards compatibility issues that were introduced in the previous update. There were some edge cases where PHP 7 had issues and it didn’t work at all on PHP 5.6. We have now changed it so that the PHP 8 compatibility changes will now only affect PHP 8 and will be more thorough… 

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.
