DevShed:
Customizing WordPress Search Results to Sort by Title
May 06, 2009 @ 09:30:09

DevShed has a new tutorial posted today looking at two methods that you can use to sort the search results from your WordPress blog my title instead of by date - a bit of code and a plugin.

Sorting search results by post title in WordPress is often useful, if your website needs its entries to be sorted alphabetically. As a quick background, WordPress is the most popular open source, free blogging/CMS platform. However, the default search results are sorted by date, so there is no easy way to sort them alphabetically except to edit the core WordPress search functionally source code.

Here's the two options:

  • Updates to the Query.php file to change up the "order by" value to work for the post_title and ascending/descending sort orders
  • The Sort Search Results by Title plugin that lets you keep away from the WordPress source and change the results order with a drop-in plugin
