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.


We try our best to make Real Custom Post Order compatible with other plugins that enhance your WordPress. At the moment we have explicit compatibility with the following plugins:

For which post types can I create a custom post order?

  • Posts

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.

This plugin has been my goto for custom post ordering for a while. When I encountered a problem, the support team were quick to help. Highly recommend!

The UI is very neat and the app features stick to the basics. It's a good idea to add it to your document where you can enable custom post types in the screen options. I found it so hard

This plugin is a very elegant and easy to use solution to change the order in which pages and other post types, including WooCommerce products, are arranged. I used to use another similar plugin for page ordering, but I prefer this one.

This worked very well for me. So far it's the only one of these plugins that has a drag and drop option that works and is easy to use. I am very happy with it. Some minor points: - This plugin works best if you don't have a lot of posts yet. If you do have a lot of posts, just activating this plugin will switch the sorting order - oldest at the top. Once you add new posts, those will show up at the top again, but any posts that are already there will now be in reverse order. If you have a lot of posts that's annoying. - Once you activate this plugin, the sorting is enabled for posts and pages automatically. When you visit one of those pages in the back-end, you'll get a hint on how to enable/disable it for individual post types, but if, like me, you're installing it to use with CPT... you'll have a hard time figuring out how to enable it 🙂 I hope they'll add the instruction to the welcome screen everyone gets to see after installation. As a last note: the order did not take for me on author archive pages. This may be because I'm doing a pre_get_posts to add a cpt to the author archive. I fixed it by adding a $query->set( 'orderby', 'menu_order' ) and $query->set( 'order', 'ASC' ) to that pre_get_posts and now it's working beautifully. I am very happy this plugin exists and I will definitely be using it again.
