Alphabetize Blog Posts or Blog Summaries

Recommended Posts

This might be a long shot...

I'm using a mix of blogs/summaries/categories to create a business directory on a website. Businesses will be added frequently, and it would be best for them to display alphabetically. 

Right now, blog posts are organized by publish date, which is not relevant for the way I'm using it. I could manually change dates to alphabetize, but that won't help my client when they add businesses in the future.

Does anyone know of a custom code or way to have them automatically alphabetized?

You would be a hero!!!!

This can be custom-coded but it's complex so I'd recommend buying a solution that someone has already written.  

You didn't provide a link to the page/site but if you are using a Summary Block, you may want to use a combination of the Lazy Summaries plugin and the Universal Filter plugin. The Lazy Summaries plugin does have some limited sorting capabilities built in, but the main function is to improve the way that the posts are displayed and increase the number of posts that are shown in a Summary Block. The Universal Filter extends the sort/filter capabilities massively and can work with both Summary Blocks and Bog pages directly.
