We should consider adding a support for sorting columns in the WP_Privacy_Requests_Table class.

The requester and requested columns look suitable for sorting.

  • Keywords has-patch added

43960.diff is a first pass that:

  • Adds support for sorting the requester and requested columns, that are mapped to title and post_date_gmt db cols ordering.
  • Uses paged instead of offset query parameter.
  • Doesn't override the default search order.
  • Sets the default requested order direction as descending.
  • Sets the default requester order direction as ascending.
  • Sets the screen argument for the instantiation of the table objects, to avoid setting $this->_column_headers directly.

The patch does allow for sorting of requester and requested columns, but it will only sort on the first click, after that the order does not change again.

Thanks @ianbelanger for testing it, I fixed the typos in 43960.2.diff ;-)

No problem @birgire, just tested the new patch and all is working fine now.

This works well. One thing I noticed, though, is that when you sort by date, the default order is correctly reversed but the arrow on the table is incorrect. Incoming screenshot.

@desrosj was that on :hover? It seems to be the default in sortable columns, that on hover it will show the direction that clicking will give you, ASC or DESC. Since this table defaults to DESC, hovering will give you the ASC arrow. See Pages or Posts tables for same behavior, just opposite because they default to Date ASC instead of DESC. Behavior seems normal to me on Chrome 66.0.3359.139
