Playlist IDS Order
« on: September 19, 2016, 02:20:23 pm »
Can the default playlist behavior for the "ids" argument be changed to display the episodes in the order that the ids are listed?

I'm trying to create a "most popular" playlist--which the "ids" argument is perfect for! But the player automatically reorders the episodes based on descending date.

...which seems a bit unnatural since we're already manually specifying the ids!

If the playlist player maintained the specified order, then the feature would have a lot more flexibility.

Thanks!

Hello Zach,

It used to order them in the order of the IDs you provide. Can you provide a link to your website, maybe it is something else that is changing the order.

Here's a link to the test page. There are three ids added to the list, using the shortcode:

powerpress_playlist itunes_subtitle=true date="false" ids="3444, 3581, 3450"

Which should be oldest, newest, middle. But as you can see, the player reorders them by descending date.
