Is it possible to sort a custom field as secondary sorting?

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

Your observation is correct and the custom fields are not available for the secondary ordering.

To achieve this, you'll need a custom function attached to the 'wpv_filter_query' hook. You'll find an example of such a function in this forum thread:

I hope this helps and please let me know if you need further assistance.

regards,
Waqar
