A simple and easy way to reorder your custom post-type posts in WordPress. Adds drag and drop functionality for post ordering in the WordPress admin panel. Works with custom post-types and regular posts.

We consider Reorder Posts a developer tool. If you do not know what menu_order or custom queries are, then this plugin is likely not for you.


  • Adds “Reorder” sub-menu to all post types by default
  • Hierarchical post type support (i.e., supports nested posts)
  • Allows you to re-nest hierarchical posts
  • Auto-saves order without having to click an update button
  • Dedicated settings panel for determining which post types can be reordered
  • Advanced settings panel for overriding the menu order of custom post type queries

  • Reorder Posts permite que você facilmente arraste e solte posts para alterar a sua ordem
  • Configurações do painel admin


Either install the plugin via the WordPress admin panel, or …

  1. Upload metronet-reorder-posts to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Ative o plugin pelo menu “Plugins” no WordPress.

For each post type, you will see a new “Reorder” submenu. Simply navigate to “Reorder” to change the order of your post types. Changes are saved immediately, there is no need to click a save or update button.

By default, ordering is enabled for all post types. A settings panel is available for determining which post types to enable ordering for.

Advanced customization is allowed via hooks. See the Plugin Filters on GitHub.

This tool allows you to easily reorder post types in the back-end of WordPress. How the posts are sorted in the front-end is entirely up to you, as it should be.

We do have advanced settings under Settings->Reorder Posts, but these should only be used for testing purposes.

You’ll want to make use of WP_Query, get_posts, or pre_get_posts to modify query behavior on the front-end of your site.

Examples of each are on the respective pages above. You are welcome to leave a support request if you need help with a query and we’ll do our best to get back with you.


Onde está a página de configurações?

The settings are located under Settings->Reorder Posts. Settings are optional, of course, as the plugin will work with no configuration. We consider the settings useful for only advanced users (i.e., users with coding experience).

Onde está o botão “salvar” para a reordenação?

Não existe um botão. As alterações são salvas automaticamente.

Preciso adicionar código personalizado para que isso funcione?

Sim e não. Existem muitas formas de recuperar posts usando a API do WordPress, e se o código tiver uma propriedade de ordenação menu_order, as alterações devem ser refletidas imediatamente.

Often, however, there is no menu_order argument. In the plugin’s settings, there is an “Advanced” section which will attempt to override the menu_order property. Please use this with caution.

Posso usar isso em um único tipo de post?

You are able to override the post types used via a filter (see below) or navigate to the plugin’s settings and enable which post types you would like to use.


add_filter( 'metronet_reorder_post_types', 'slug_set_reorder' );
function slug_set_reorder( $post_types ) {
    $post_types = array( 'my_custom_post_type', 'my_other_post_type' );
    return $post_types;


O plugin funciona com tipos de post hierárquicos?

Yes, but be wary that the plugin now allows you to re-nest hierarchical items easily.

Funciona em versões mais antigas do WordPress?

This plugin requires WordPress 3.7 or above. We urge you, however, to always use the latest version of WordPress.

Ele ordena os posts dentro de uma categoria (ex: um termo)?

No, but there is an add-on for this plugin called Reorder by Term you should check out.

Thank you very much for this. The use case fits perfectly for developers indeed. It doesn’t pollute the front-end’s default view and only works when specified within custom queries. Exactly what I needed. Thank you once again, keep up the great work 👍

Does exactly what it says without adding complexity or additional obstacles. Thank you!

Thank you for this very handy plugin to allow me to provide drag and drop reordering to my client for a custom post type I created.

The posts were in no particular order when in settings. Was expecting them to be ordered by date like they are in “all posts”. It was random and the other settings wasn’t able to adjust that.

on most WP sites I’ve programmed it doesn’t work by just installing it… You need a little code tweaking. Not a problem for a developer but I think this type of plugins use to work just by installing them and moving the posts around.
