menu_order is a wp_posts field, meaning each post can only store a single value which isn’t enough in a scenario where the same post could be assinged to multiple terms with a different custom order each time. Using wp_term_relationships.term_order would be a better choice.

Eh, or just post meta, and then using meta_query to sort by that.

that would have the same limitation as menu_order: single value per post.

Not really. You could have multiple dynamically-generated meta_keys that you query against as needs dictate.

true that, i didn’t think you meant a per taxonomy unique key.

So nothing easy or that you have done before. If you use the post types, how do they order the slides?

I actually dont use tax’s for sliders, I use create a slider post type then just use meta or attachments for the slides( depending on the slider JS I use)

Its possible by adding the page attributes to the CPT “supports” plus setting the “hierarchical” to true so you can set the menu order(then youd query by menu order) but not sure if theres a tutorial on it and making it drag and drop on the admin side is a little more complex

menu_order is a wp_posts field, meaning each post can only store a single value which isn’t enough in a scenario where the same post could be assinged multiple terms with a different custom order each time.

Using wp_term_relationships.term_order would be a better choice.

yup it just depends on what/how you want to do things.

Hello Envato Team! I have read all 69 pages of this topic, but one question still presents as it’s not quite clear for me: are theme frameworks like SMOF or Options Framework allowed to be integrated in the theme or not? In my opinion it will provide better user experience despite it’s not a plugin. In case it is not, can I rework such a framework into a plugin and use it in my theme ? Please, reply :whistle: . Thank you.

By published date for course. Doing it for years already. Each custom post = 1 slide.
