So for my post list, currently these are sortby post_count.

Now, I am trying to sort the posts by "most newest" or "recent"

Here is how the shortcode works


Other parameters can be found from Order & Orderby Parameters, however I could not find parameter for "most newest."

Any suggestions?


Simply use date as a value to orderby and DESC as value to order. This will get posts which was published the most recently.

  • Unfortunately no. It looks like [orderby] is not supported with the shortcode. I will probably work on it next weekend. =) Thanks Pieter – Steve Kim Mar 23 '15 at 5:21
  • In your shortcode you should probably try [sortby=date] :-) – Pieter Goosen Mar 23 '15 at 5:49
  • haha yeah, :P I tried that but no luck. It is not a big deal at this point. I set the sortby with user registered day. If I find out how to make it work, I will let you know. Thanks – Steve Kim Mar 23 '15 at 5:51
  • If you don't succeed, post your shortcode. I suspect that something is wrong then in your shortcode. Always good to have a look at the source :-). Good luck – Pieter Goosen Mar 23 '15 at 6:00
