    I’m using the show_post_snippets shortcode to show a gallery as follows…

    [show_post_snippets post_type=”gallery_item” number_of_columns=”4″ post_count=”8″ image_size=”medium” no_margin=”true” taxonamy=”category” terms=”my-cat-slug”]

    …and I’ve tried changing the order of them using the “Re-Order” tool/page, but it doesn’t affect how they are ordered on the front end.

    Have searched, but cannot find any documentation anywhere for the show_post_snippets shortcode.

    So how can I set the order of my gallery items?


    Hi, do you have a link or a test user so we can check the issue and provide you with the exact code you need?


    No, I’m afraid it’s not online yet.


    Hi, it´s difficult to know why the issue is being produced on your webpage. You can enter the following code after line 149 in the file framework/shortcodes/post-shortcodes

    'orderby' => 'menu_order'


    The latest version released 2.1 has detailed documentation on the shortcode in the documentation. We do not sort the portfolio by order attribute since some of our users complained about having to reorder everything when they need it to be sorted by date(default behavior). You can change the shortcode to sort by order attribute by making code change in file framework/functions/post-functions.php file at line number 503 to insert the left positioned query attribute –

    $loop = new WP_Query(array('post_type' => $post_type, 'posts_per_page' => $post_count,
                    'tax_query' => array(array(
                        'taxonomy' => $taxonamy,
                        'field' => 'slug',
                        'terms' => explode(',', $terms),
    ‘orderby’ => ‘menu_order’,
    ‘order’ => ‘ASC’,

    Hope that helps.


    This code breaks my site in Austin.


    HenkinSchultz – I replied to the other thread. Since you are using [show_portfolio] shortcode, pls make the change in line number 143 in portfolio-functions.php file to –

    $loop = new WP_Query(array('post_type' => 'portfolio', 'posts_per_page' => $posts_per_page, 'order' => 'ASC', 'orderby'=>'menu_order'));

    That should help rearrange the portfolio order using Post Type Reorder plugin. If not, pls post a temp login and we can take a look.
