Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)


as stated in this ticket (#22637) I would question wether this is the (complete) solution to the mentioned behaviour:

"...missing gallery sort options. There were a bunch of them in core, in a number of forms:

— Sort the queue ascending and descending (these seemed to invert the queue)

— Order by: Menu order, title, Date/time, and Random

— Order: ascending and descending sort for the "Order by" properties

It looks like we need some of this back. These should all be "on-the-fly" sorting, as in, they sort the images in the view, then save it to the "ids" attribute of the gallery shortcode.

We should support a way to immediately sort the entire gallery by title, date/time, random, and then the ability to inverse the gallery."

Per #22637, the main ones were added back here. Reversing the queue is there, as was random order. Having only these two means that ascending/descending is no longer needed. Menu order no longer makes much sense (this was the order based on dragging, which is now handled the new way).

The only remaining ones are date/time and title. We didn't think they were very important, especially since date/time is typically going to be the default state (as the order in which things were uploaded is going to be the default collection in the gallery view).

So, I'm inclined to close this for now.
