    I would like to make use of ordering for a records database using MB Custom Table. I have created a custom post type for the records and am able to display all data correctly in a php template.

    Using the WordPress, ‘orderby’ arg does not work. My custom posts are just displaying in the order they were posted.

    $args = array( 
        'post_type' => 'cemetery-records', 
        'posts_per_page'=>20, 
        'orderby'=>'last_name',
        'order'=>'ASC', 
        'paged' => $paged
    );
    $loop = new WP_Query( $args )

    This makes sense to me because it is looking in the WordPress tables, not my custom table. However, I am having trouble finding documentation on how to order them differently based on the data in the custom table. Can you point me in the right direction?
