When creating or editing a user directory, the "sorting" panel allows you to specify which sorting criteria will be visible on the frontend and which sorting method to use by default.
The directory sorter is the filter on the frontend that allows your visitors to change the display order of a directory. If enabled, through the "Display sorter" option, a "sort by" option will appear on the frontend like displayed into the image below:
If enabled, the "results per page" filter will appear on the frontend. This filter allows your visitors to select how many members they wish to display per page.
The sorting method option allows you to specify the default sorting method used into the directory. Furthermore, the "sort by" dropdown menu on the frontend will use this option as default selected.
Directories can be sorted by:
- Newest users first
- Oldest users first
- First Name
- Last Name
