Order by custom fields not working in Posts Grid

    I have a Posts Grid on https://www.whurld.com/a-test-gallery/ and the query uses ‘girl’ a toolset custom post type and Included By Terms shows ‘On Site (77 items - [Girl-Status]’ and 77 posts show in the grid. 

    However, I need the results to be ordered by a Toolset custom field called girl-priority-number (so far the data entered in the 77 posts are mixture of numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4) and whenever I set Order By: to 

    Custom Field Value (numeric) 

    ….and manually enter either the custom post name 

    Girl Priority Number 

    or the slug

    girl-priority-number

    ….the 77 posts disappear and nothing displays.

    Can you help me to get this to work please.

    Many thanks,

    Barry.

    Hi Max,

    Thank you. The log in is:

    The Post Grid is on https://www.whurld.com/a-test-gallery

    It uses the default Post Grid widget. 

    There is a custom post type called Girls. Within it there is a custom field called 'Girl Priority Number' (girl-priority-number) and I need to get the Post Grid to order the entries by that custom field. Currently the 100 or so posts have numbers 1, 2, 3 or 4 added in the priority field. So there will be one or two posts with 1 and a bunch with 2, then 3 and more with 4. So the idea is that any girl with a priority number of 1 will display at the top of the grid, and then the girls with 2, followed by 3 and lastly all the girls with a priority of 4 at the bottom of the post grid.

    Each time I edit the a-test-gallery page and within the Posts Query tab of Edit Post Grid I select Order By and choose Custom Field Value or Custom Field Value numeric and then type in 'girl-priority-number' all the entries in the grid disappear. 

    I'm hoping you might be able to help. 

    Many thanks,

    Barry.
