#23666 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add sortable by Author to Posts

Description

Posts page of dmin area ( wp-admin/edit.php ) is not sortable by Authors.

By typing the urls shown below works.
wp-admin/edit.php?orderby=author&order=asc
wp-admin/edit.php?orderby=author&order=desc

I propose to modify WP_Posts_List_Table::get_sortable_columns (WP_Posts_List_Table is located in wp-admin/includes/class-wp-posts-lista-belt.php), as shown below.

	function get_sortable_columns() {
		return array(
			'title'    => 'title',
			'parent'   => 'parent',
			'author'   => 'author',  // I added here.
			'comments' => 'comment_count',
			'date'     => array( 'date', true )
		);
	}

This modification adds the link to "Author" on the posts list table, which makes easier to sort posts by Author.

That results in sorting by author ID rather than display name though, which is probably not what the user would expect.

Replying to kawauso:

Correct, see #17141.

Author column sorting was intentionally removed in [21743].
