I am trying to: output a list of repeatable fields values as decided in the backend (and reorder automatically if the editor drag/drop them in a different order)

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link (see the list of woods colors)

I expected to see: the list shall respect the order the editor decides in the backend

In your View in the ordering settings scroll through the options until you find the field: toolset-post-sortorder. Choose that and it will respect the order from the backend when displayed on the front end.

These are repeatable field groups you are trying to recreate the same order of, yes? Which you are outputting with a View.

Rather than an individual custom field that can have multiple values?

How are the posts with these repeatable field groups published? From the front-end or the back-end?

#1403917

Yes, they are repeatable fields groups (materials) within a parent repeated field group (finishings), for example:
SPECIAL LACQUERS (it's a repeatable group of FINISHINGS)
- BRONZO GLOSSY
- OXBLOOD glossy
- Ambra glossy
- FUMO GLOSSY
- OMBRA GLOSSY
- GOLDSNOW glossy (they are values of repeatable group MATERIALS within the FINISHINGS group)
They are inserted and re-ordered with drag-drop elements in the backend. They can have multiple values.

Could I get credentials to check the set up myself?

I will mark your next reply as private so that I can get log-in credentials from you—you may want to create a temporary admin user for me to use that you can later delete. And be sure to have a current backup of your site.

Unfortunately those credentials don't work, the password is incorrect.

Could you please check? You can edit your previous reply to update the details if needed.

#1405511

Please retry, we can login without problems with the credential described.

I'm copying and pasting the credentials you provided.

I asked a colleague to test them and they found the same, the password is wrong.

#1405875
