I am trying to sort by a custom date field. There isn't really much to explain- obviously the August event should be first, based on the sort date. However, whether I set ascending or descending makes no difference, so not sure what the problem is.

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

That is really strange.

Can you please share admin access details so that I can review what is going wrong with your setup.

*** Please make a FULL BACKUP of your database and website.***
I would also eventually need to request temporary access (WP-Admin and FTP) to your site. Preferably to a test site where the problem has been replicated if possible in order to be of better help and check if some configurations might need to be changed.

I have set the next reply to private which means only you and I have access to it.

I checked on your install and I found that you are using the plugin "Post Types Order" and as soon as I disable that plugin I can see it displays the correct posts with order:

Ahh, good point. Thanks.
