Sorting WPAlchemy Metabox Grouped Fields

Sorting WPAlchemy Metabox Grouped Fields

September 6, 2012 8:11 pm0 comments

I needed to change the sort order of my grouped fields. On a theme I was developing, there was a custom post type for Albums. Each album needed multiple attached song samples to load in a jPlayer playlist. I used WPAlchemy to include metaboxes for the administrator to upload his own song samples. But he wanted to be able to re-order/sort the songs after he uploaded them.

This was the solution I found on the class author’s website. It enables an easy, “drag to sort” function for sorting the meta box fields.

The above page has two videos showing how to code the sort solution. For your use, I’ve included the text of the code below:

<p id="sort_warning" style="display:none; color:red;">
	Remember to click Save Changes or Update to save your sort order!

	#wpa_loop-links .wpa_group
	{ border: 1px solid #ccc;
	padding:10px; margin: 0 10px 15px; background-color:#fff; }

<script type="text/javascript">
			change: function()

Many thanks to Dimas for providing this class and this sort solution.

Peace and long life
