    Ben or Jamie,

    I’m using this currently [wcv_vendorslist orderby=”display_name”] and it works but it is sorting by first name becuase everyone’s nice name is first name then last name. I also don’t want the alphabetical order to mess up if some chooses a different display name. Is there a way to make it sort by last name? I’ve been searching for a solution but am coming up blank.

    Thanks,
    Deb

    Hi Deb,

    I’m not sure if this will work, but you can try orderby=”last_name”

    Ben,

    I had orderby=”last_name” through the development process and thought it was working but all the usernames were vendors last names. Then we got a new user whose username is their first and last name and they were put with the J’s (first name) instead of the W’s (last name) in the vendor list.

    So I guess it was sorting by username and not last name.

    Yea, so that’s a no go for now then. The entire shortcode would have to be rewritten to do this, so we probably will not be able to do so.
