I’m trying to come up with a query to sort by multiple orderby values. Here’s what I have so far:
$dept_id=2; $query=new WP_Query(array( 'post_type'=>'wpcontactus', 'nopaging'=>true, 'post_status'=>array('publish', 'pending', 'future'), 'meta_key'=>'wcu_dept', 'meta_value'=>$dept_id, 'orderby'=>'title', 'order'=>'ASC' ));
I’m trying to query a custom post type, and within that post type, query a meta value.
Then, I’d like to first sort by
menu_order ascending, then by a custom meta value
wcu_lastname ascending. However, the orderby value didn’t seem to be able to take an array.
How can I order the query using multiple orderby values?
how can we put multiple order value for the fields?

In 4.0, you can now pass an array to WP_Query as the value for
The syntax looks like:
$q = new WP_Query( array( 'orderby' => array( 'title' => 'DESC', 'menu_order' => 'ASC' ) ));
Have a look here for more details :
