I am creating a custom taxonomy called Publication Authors where the authors need to be in a specific order.
I have selected the checkbox marked
Sort: Whether this taxonomy should remember the order in which terms are added to objects.
but after saving a list of authors in the required order, when I return to the custom post, the order is alphabetical. I thought it should retain the order the terms were added.
I'm not sure whether the order is being saved to the DB but not used in the post edit screen or whether it's not being saved at all.
Unfortunately the site is already fully laden with plugins and a complex theme so I wouldn't be surprised if something else is conflicting, but can you please confirm that it should work as described, or have I misunderstood the use of the checkbox?
