I'd like to create a view which shows posts from users with a specific role or roles.

I have looked at this solution https://toolset.com/forums/topic/creating-a-view-that-displays-author-posts-based-on-role/

But I think the posts shows will be ordered first by user name and then by whatever ordering I choose in the second view?

I really want the posts ordered by post title. is there a way to add a filter to a post view directly to avoid the ordering which comes from nesting two views?

Thanks

Hi Nick,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Unfortunately no there isn't given that the child view's listing is dependent on the Parent User view. In essence this will cause the view to list out the items in a tree format. So both ordering of child and parent view will be used.

Thanks,
Shane
