Installed a plugin that allows the re-ordering of posts from any post type / category / tag using a drag/drop interface.
After some time of using, my post order went haywire and new posts began to appear in a jumbled order. The plugin's native reset button resolved this, but the old posts are still jumbled (only for two particular categories).
Plugin author suggested updating menu_order to 0 only for the post type in question and I have a few questions:
- I can't seem to find the appropriate field, which table would I look in?
- Post types just cover posts, pages and all custom post types, right? If I'm only having this issue with a category, I still have to reset the menu_order of the entire parent post type?
- I see the menu_order filter in the Codex, but I thought this was only for top level menu order, not the order of actual posts?
