## wp query – WP_Query – order with usort by custom meta

Question

I have a custom post type location which has different categories (e.g. museums, theatres, shopping) and I want to output each of these categories and order within these categories by distance which is a custom meta field. Right now, I have following code, but cannot make the ordering work by distance.

<?php
$custom_terms = get_terms('location_category'); foreach($custom_terms as $custom_term) { wp_reset_query();$args = array('post_type' => 'location',
'tax_query' => array(
array(
'taxonomy' => 'location_category',
'field' => 'slug',
'terms' => $custom_term->slug, ), ), );$loop = new WP_Query($args); if($loop->have_posts()) {;?>


At the moment, I’m using usort to order alphabetically (see below), but this needs to be changed to ordering by distance.

    <?php usort($loop->posts, function($a, $b) { return strcasecmp($a->post_title,
\$b->post_title
);
});?>
