    Hi!

    I think I might have a solution, at least it’s working on my test environment.

    Basically you need to put these into your active theme folder, into the functions.php file:

    add_filter('asp_pagepost_results', 'asp_reorder_by_meta', 1, 1); 
    
    function asp_reorder_by_meta( $results ) {
      // first, get the missing CF field
      foreach ($results as $k => $r) {
        $results[$k]->m_author_name = get_post_meta($r->id, 'author_name', true);
      }
      // sorting by the new field with a helper funtion
      usort($results, "asp_meta_author_cmp");
      
      return $results;
    } 
    
    /**
     * Performs object attribute comparison
     */ 
    function asp_meta_author_cmp($a, $b) {
        return strcmp($a->m_author_name, $b->m_author_name);
    }

    This does the following:
    – Connects to ajax search pro via the “asp_pagepost_results” filter
    – then gets the “author_name” meta and adds it to the m_author_name field to each result item
    – performs a sorting based on a function, comparing the m_author_name fields, which now contains the author name custom field

    I hope this helps.

    Best,
