[Résolu] Adding a « sort by alpha » option to random results in custom post type view

Ce fil est résolu. Voici une description du problème et la solution proposée.

Problem: I would like to display a View initially sorted in random order. I would like to provide a checkbox on the filters so Users can sort the results alphabetically by title.

Solution: Nothing exactly like that exists in Toolset, but there are other options available for front-end sorting.

Tell us what you are trying to do?
I would like to add the option (using a checkbox) for the user to sort the view results, which load in random order by default, to sort by title ascending after the initial view results have loaded.
Is there any documentation that you are following?
Is there a similar example that we can see?
What is the link to your site?

Hi Toolset doesn't have this exact type of control available, but does allow for front-end sorting of a View's results by the User by other means. The checkbox isn't available, but you can show a dropdown list of sort options and allow Users to adjust the sort direction if you'd like. To insert those controls, edit the View and find the Search and Pagination editor panel. If you cannot find the panel, scroll to the top right corner and click "Screen Options". You can enable the Search and Pagination editor panel here. Click "Sorting Options" to see a popup that allows you to edit the front-end sorting options. I'm attaching a screenshot here showing options for random order and order by title. A preview is included on the right side.

Another option is to create a sortable table View. More detailed information about these features is available in the documentation here:

Let me know if that's not clear, and I can help.


My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
