Places Settings – Sorting

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions


Sorting applies to listings shown on the Archive template using the gd_loop element. An example of an Archive page is /places/, which will show all the listings that are gd_places.

Each CPT can have independent sorting options. You might want to sort paid listings by “Featured” and then sort events by Date, for example.

Sorting features do not apply to search results. Search results are always sorted by relevance.

Find the Places Settings – Sorting (tab) in the backend.

Default Settings

Setting Up a Sub-Sort Order

Where results are ‘equal’ within the sort, they can be sorted again. For example, the first sort is by Title (alpha), then within all the listings starting with “A”, sort them again by which are highest rated.

You can set this ‘sub-sort’ up like so:


Use gd_loop_actions in a GD Archive template to display sorting and layout options.

Hide the layout dropdown with Custom CSS:

.geodir-list-view-select {
    display: none;

How can I make Featured listings first on the search page?

The sorting options control the default sort of the listings that appear on the Archive pages. Search results are sorted by relevance and do not have sorting options.
