re: I entered them in according to position (where they should be)
Also I did name 1 on Len Anderson who should be first and it didn’t have any affect.
I originally had 6 names in for test, I deleted them to re-enter in order, I started with Len Anderson – but the plugin held the deleted 6 so he is actually #7, Michael Lynch is 8, Lori Fjelstad is 9, etc. according to the order they should be in (this was prior to plugin update)
Ok, I think I understand, you are talking about the entry ID, correct?
But, I still need the answer to these questions from my last reply…
Which method did you use to order them and what is your exact shortcode?
The methods I am referencing in this question are the two methods I gave you to do ordering in this reply.
The answers are important because right now the list appears, to me, to be simply supported by the default method of the last name which implies that neither of the sort methods were applied or another issue which is preventing them from function like they should.
