A lot of clients have asked us how can they rearrange the order of their standard posts and their custom post types in WordPress, 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 mainly used for creating things like FAQ, 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.

After installing the plugin, go to Settings -> Post Order Types, and go through those few settings and set them based on your preferences.
