Actually, I think what is happening is that just one record is moving to the top of the list. For example, in the records for the custom post type, I have the following first names in order of most recent first:
Regina, Anne, Lori, Laura.
If I do not do the sort in the get_posts query, they are sorted as shown above; Regina is the first record, as that is the most recent one I added.
If I do the sort in the get_posts query, Anne is moved to the top of the list and the remainder are in the order they were entered with most recent first:
Anne, Regina, Lori, Laura
I found the solution. Apparently some time ago I had installed Post Types Order plug-in and it was active. I deactivated it a Wala — the order by works now! Ah, I just love it when I realize how stupid I am! LOL!
We are using relationship tables and are populating the selecting list by drop. While we are able to display the list properly sorted in the front-end based on the selected list in the admin page, we have a requirement to display all those products which are marked as discontinued at the bottom. Can you please help me with this.
