I’m using the default template as it offers a nice clean interface which is perfect for our needed. I’ve customised the template.php file slightly so that is removes the “Categories” and “Last updated” information from the screen. Then I run out of PHP talent :) What I’d like to also do is reorder the phone list, it appears to be in alphabetical order and I’d like the list to start at Z rather than A….if that makes sense.

Sure, take a look at the order_by shortcode option doc page. I think this should do it.
If you have a moment, I would truly appreciate a review. Many thanks in advance!

Unless I’m going mad I can’t see “phone” as an available attribute?

Oh, sorry! When you said “phone list”, I interpreted that as the result list, not the phone numbers listed within the entry.
The phone numbers are actually listed in the order they were input in to the entry. The only way to change that order is to edit the entry and drop and drag the phone numbers in the order you want them to be displayed in.
Hope that answers your question correctly.08/16/2013 at 4:07 am #267377
Still think I’m missing something so I’ve attached a screen shot of what I’m trying to do :)
In the screenshot is the default template with my labels, these are being changed by “Say What?” plug in.
Alt. Number = Home Phone
Phone Number = Work Phone
What I’d like to do is have the “Alt. Phone” appear below the “Phone Number”
Thanks for all your help on this.

Right, that is what I understood after in my last reply. You manually control the order.
Go to an entry in the admin where you want the numbers switched, click edit.
Scroll to the phone numbers.
Now, click and drag the “Phone Number” is above the “Alt.Phone”.
Lastly save the update.
Now when you view that entry, the numbers will be listed in the order you put them in.
There is not a way to do this automatically, each entry will have to be edited.08/20/2013 at 5:21 am #267557
Thanks for that, makes sense now. I can see the ordering in the database so I can figure out what is going on there.
I am importing, via CSV, just over 2500 records, I don’t want to have to edit each entry to move the order of the phones. How do I ensure that the phone numbers are imported into the database in the right order?
Many thanks08/20/2013 at 4:22 pm #267623
I had to look at the code for the CSV Import… but I fairly certain the only way to do thi is to edit the CSV Import to import the work phone before the home phone.
Look for this line in the
csv.phpfile found here:
$phoneNumberMap = array('homephone' => 'home', 'homefax' => 'home_fax', 'workphone' => 'work', 'workfax' => 'work_fax', 'cellphone' => 'mobile');
And change it to this:
$phoneNumberMap = array('workphone' => 'work', 'workfax' => 'work_fax', 'homephone' => 'home', 'homefax' => 'home_fax', 'cellphone' => 'mobile');08/21/2013 at 6:27 am #267661
Excellent, that worked perfectly. Many thanks for your patience on this!08/21/2013 at 9:33 am #267678
