I created some posts (which are exhibitions in our case) and used the "sort by date" sorting. Now i think it sorts according to the creation date which doesn't make sense in our case.

Is there a way to manually sort the posts?

I thought about this kind of wordpress-sliding mechanism where one could slide the posts to match the order. As i think this is hard to implement i have the suggestion to add add a "sort according to custom field" option and then it is sorted after a numerical order. I.e. i have "1" in my first post, "2" in my second post and so on.

Assumptions to make this work:

- all numerical values are unique for the custom field. If there are identical numbers, sort according to the title (but this should not happen).

-if the custom field "wplp_sorting_order" doesn't exist, don't show the option at all

I would be ready to give a donation if you could make this happen. Additionally i think this is a great opportunity for your plugin to add manual sorting of the posts.

This is still very important for me, do you have any estimate if and when this will be implemented?
I am willing to pay for it if needed.
