The free Post Types Order plugin is a great tool for customizing the display order of posts.


FacetWP is currently only compatible with the free version of the Post Types Order plugin.

The paid Advanced Post Types Order plugin is currently untested with FacetWP. It has at least a few incompatibilities, your results may vary. We do not provide support for issues with this plugin.

Fix sorting issues

A known issue with the Post Types Order plugin is that it prevents FacetWP’s Sort facet from sorting correctly. If you run into issues while it is activated, browse to Settings > Post Types Order and uncheck the “Admin Sort” box.


If that doesn’t work, you could also try unchecking the “Auto Sort” option. With that option disabled, you’ll need to manually add 'orderby' => 'menu_order' to your WP_Query arguments.
