Add-On Type(s)



This plugin allows you to reverse the order of a series of items.

Why such functionality is needed?

For example, you may need to display 10 most recent comments in ascending order. But exp:comment:entries tag
allows only to set “sort” parameter value either to “asc” or “desc”. So, after setting “orderby” parameter to “date”
and “sort” to “desc” you will get 10 most recent comments but they will be ordered not as you need. To order them as needed
their order should be reversed. Here Reverse This plugin comes to your help.


No parameters.


1) {reverse_these_item}{/reverse_these_item} - any item in the series of items which should be reversed must be wrapped
with this variable pair.


This code will output latest 10 comments in ascending order.


{exp:comment_entries entry_id="531" limit="10" orderby="date" sort="desc"}

I was having an issue with EE’s native multiple orderby= & sort= ( .

This sorted me out!
