Sort order of dropdown

Recommended Posts

How do I get the sort order of a dropdown (in a page reference field using asmselect) to be how I want it. It seems to be the original order of creation, no matter what I specify. Changing the sort order in the pages or using a selector sort= on the field seems to have no effect.

Works here. I just tried it out with selector string:

parent=1097, include=hidden, sort=-name

and it does list by name in descending order.

Whoops, I was getting tripping myself up. Originally I put the selector in the field admin page, then later added a hook without deleting the original selector. The hook over-rides the selector, so adding a sort to the original selector has no effect. As a matter of practice, I'll try and remember to delete selectors if I add a hook, but it's an easy thing to forget. Then later, you see the selector and think that's where the criteria are applied 😞 Perhaps it's better to just use hooks in the first place, so everything is consistently in the same place?
