Can you please tell me how do you set term order for a post?
When I go to WP database, I see the
term_order is available only for
term_relationships table, which stores the connections between posts and terms. And the sooner a term in inserted, the lower order it has.
When we update a post, Meta Box runs
wp_set_object_terms() function to update post terms. This function does these things:
- Insert new terms relationships for the post
- Delete old terms relationships
- Reset the relationships order (
The last step causes the problem you have met. You can check the source code of
wp_set_object_terms() function to see more details. Here is the screenshot of that part:
The bad thing is this is the only function we can use to set post terms :(.
Maybe there’s another approach to set the order? Have you tried
