I have no PHP knowledge at all, i will still be able to use this plugin?

Absolutely, you can!
Unlike many other plugins, you don’t have to do any code changes to make your post order to change accordingly to custom defined post order. There is an option to autoupdate the WordPress queries so the posts order will be returned in the required order. Anyway this can be turned off (Autosort) to allow customized code usage.

How to manually apply the sort on queries

Include a ‘orderby’ => ‘menu_order’ property within your custom query.

What kind of posts/pages this plugin allow me to sort?

You can sort ALL post types that you have defined into your wordpress as long they are not hierarhically defined: Posts (default WordPress custom post type), Movies, Reviews, Data etc..

Ok, i understand about the template post types order, how about the admin interface?

There’s a option you can trigger, to see the post types order as you defined in the sort list, right into the main admin post list interface.

There is a feature that i want it implemented, can you do something about it?

All ideas are welcome and i put them on my list to be implemented into the new versions. Anyway this may take time, but if you are in a rush, please consider a small donation and we can arrange something.

Can i make certain queries to ignore the custom sort when Autosort is turned On?

This can be done by including the ignore_custom_sort within custom query arguments. An example can be found at

How can i force sort apply for certain queries when Autosort is turned On?

A filter can be used to achieve that pto/posts_orderby. An example can be found at
