I have a live client site with a resource center and resources are sorted first by featured (yes/no) and then by date published (most recent first). The outcome:
- 3 featured items, sorted by date
- 6 non-featured items, sorted by date
- everything else, sorted by date
This means the newest, non-featured resource my client added is showing up in the 10th spot instead of the 4th spot because it’s in that everything else bucket. This is a live, client site so I don’t feel comfortable sharing a back-end link, even if it’s read only, but it appears to be this 3-year old bug exactly:
Has anyone else experienced this or found a solution that doesn’t involve recreating each post which is a non-starter?
I was able to test/reproduce the issue by toggling ‘Featured’ on and then off on posts and watch them move up from the last grouping into that second grouping that appears after featured items.
Here is the live site : https://www.altr.com/resources
Item 10, “Solution Brief — Enhancing Snowflake with Query-Level Governance”, is not featured and has a publish date of May 12, 2020. The six items above it have older dates and are also not featured.
(I can provide a read-only link to staff if they want to investigate.)
