I try to build something that can sort posts by day - and within the same day sort them with any meta value (integer) - like popularity or vote or what have you.
So that, in the end, i get today's posts ordered by meta, then yesterday posts by meta, etc, etc...
The WordPress query object allows nice multiple table sorting since v4, including meta data.
<?php $the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'meta_key' => 'my_meta_field', 'orderby' => array( 'date' => 'DESC', 'my_meta_field' => 'DESC' ) ) ); ?>
orderby date seems more like time based, where i would need something day based. My posts are then ordered just by time, ignoring the meta field.
Any help ?
