A lot of clients have asked us how can they rearrange the order of their standard posts and their custom post types, therefore, we decided to share the solution with you too. For those of you that might not know and wondering what custom post types are, they are used for things like FAQ’s, services, portfolio, staff, and so on.

Since WordPress doesn’t allow you to reorder your posts and custom post types by default, I’ll show you a simple and free plugin that can do that, since it’s the easiest and fastest way.

Using the Post Type Order plugin
