#39657 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Posts endpoint doesn't support orderby=menu_order

Component: REST API Keywords:
Focuses: rest-api Cc:


Using the WP API v2 in wordpress 4.7, you cannot query posts with orderby=menu_order which is what the plugin metronet-reorder-posts uses. The error returned is "orderby is not one of date, relevance, id, include, title, slug." This was previously possible in wordpress 4.6 with the wp-api plugin.

@jordan314 menu_order is not currently supported out of the box, you may want to comment on #38693 where we are discussing expanding what orderby options are supported by default.

In the meantime, can enable custom orderby parameters using the rest_post_collection_params filter, see
