Sort by Votes

Hello, I have a template which sorts my custom post types with this filters: All, Reviews and Rating. But i want to order them by VOTES, im using your plugin. The code in the template file its something like this:

<ul class=”sort_by”>

<li class=”title”> <?php echo SORT_BY;?>

<li class=”<?php if($_REQUEST==”:wink:{ echo ‘current’; }?>”> “> <?php echo ALL;?>

<li class=”<?php if($_REQUEST==’review’:wink:{ echo ‘current’;}?>”> “> <?php echo REVIEWS;?>

<li class=”<?php if($_REQUEST==’rating’:wink:{ echo ‘current’;}?>”> “> <?php echo RATING;?>

<li class=”i_next”> <?php next_posts_link(NEXT_TITLE) ?>

<li class=”i_previous”><?php previous_posts_link(PREVIOUS) ?>

But I want to sort them by votes. Is it possible? Please help! Thanks!

    Hi there!

    I am going to ask the developer to comment here. It may take a bit longer to resolve than an normal support ticket.

    In the meantime, you may want to check out the code within the most popular voted widget file for clues. :slight_smile:

    This really depends on how you’re implementing the actual posts output. At the moment, because of the way the votes are stored, interacting with WP_Query instances in this way would be quite difficult, so you’d really have to look into using a non-standard loop and filter out posts that aren’t of your custom type.
