    I have set up a filter system for my website that use custom fields. Whenever I change the ordering of results settings, they don’t seem to apply to these because they are custom field filters and not generic filters.

    I have tried changing the ordering to “custom field ascending/descending”, without any results. I have tried it for both strings and numbers and it doesn’t seem to work.

    How can I get the results to be displayed in alphabetical order for these custom filters?

    For reference, I am testing this filter on the following webpage: http://project-elite.com/test_xyz .

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Hi,

    Thank you for all the details. Currently, I see you use the ‘ajax_sorting_order’ custom field for ordering, which is empty for most fields.

    If you want to order by the title, you can simply choose the order by title ascending/descending option: https://i.imgur.com/clN5x0L.png
    It is going to work, even if you have a custom field as the result titles.
    If you also want to have the auto populated results ordered alphabetically, just use this configuration: https://i.imgur.com/lT65X5H.png

    That should do the trick.

    Best,
