WordPress WP_Query orderby being overwritten
$args = array( 'post_type' => 'mcm_company', 'orderby' => 'title', 'order' => 'ASC', 'posts_per_page' => '1000', 'post_status' => 'publish', ); $r = array(); $the_query = new WP_Query( $args );
I’m expected to see the results get returned in alphabetical order, but it’s not. The final query is
[request] => SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS wp_posts.* FROM wp_posts WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.post_type = 'mcm_company' AND ((wp_posts.post_status = 'publish')) ORDER BY wp_posts.menu_order ASC, wp_posts.post_title ASC LIMIT 0, 1000
which you can see is getting the wrong
ORDER BY. I’m assuming something is overwriting the
orderby… is there a way to force the order to title?
The issue was from the Post Types Order plugin, with the Auto Sort option enabled
