I am trying to query my custom post types. I can display both of them with this code:

'post_type'=> array('map','item')

But I don't want them to mix. I want "map" to display before "item".

Please help!


Since version 4.0 is available 'type' option for 'orderby' argument in WP_Query.

Also, thanks to the more powerful ORDER BY in WordPress 4.0 you can control how posts of a post type are ordered.

Example (untested):

$q = new WP_Query(array(
    'post_type' => array('map','item'),
    'orderby'   => array(
       'type'   => 'DESC',
       'title'  => 'ASC'
  • Thank you, this worked! I had to add remove_all_filters('posts_orderby'); before it in my case! Jan 10 '15 at 22:45
  • Glad it worked. Please mark the answer as accepted if it was right solution for you.
