I have a hierarchical CPT with the following structure:
- parent item 1 - child item 1 - child item 2 - child item 3 - child item 4 - child item 5 - parent item 2 - child item 1 - child item 2 - child item 3 - child item 4 - child item 5
each child item has a meta key called "section_id" which is numeric and corresponds to it's order within the parent. The date stamps are approx 5 minutes apart from each other.
what I want to accomplish is sorting each parent item in descending date order, THEN the child items in either ascending date order or by the meta section_id (either will work, since they will product the same results)
parse_query allow me to do one or the other, but not both. is it possible to do this?
note this is only for the admin post table, not the front end.
