Articles Field: how to have a Manual order

Marc's Avatar Marc
Hi Peter,

As you know I love Articles Field and use it a lot 🙂
Usually, when I select multiple "related" Articles in the Custom Field, I use the Order as defined in the Custom Field itself (for example : Alphabetical Order by Title).

But now I would have the need to have a Manual Order.
It can not be the Order of the Articles in the Articles Manager... bc sometimes I want "Authors: Peter, Marc" and other times "Authors: Marc, Peter".

So is there a way to get this manual order ? (as it is now, I think that no matter the order in which you have selected the related Articles in the Custom Field, when the given article is saved then this order becomes "the order of the IDs of the selected Articles".

Txs for your thoughts!

No, there is no option for that in Articles Field.
Please post a rating at the Joomla! Extensions Directory

Txs for the confirmation Peter.
So at least I have not missed some existing feature 🙂
If you think of a way to implement that in the coming months, I'd be very happy to help and test.
