WordPress – Alphabetical List Plugin

This is a simple wordpress plugin to list the posts alphabetically. Sometimes you have several categories but you need to order just one alphabetically and leave the others listed by published date order. After installing this plugin you can select those categories.


  1. Upload alphabetical_list folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to Settings/Alphabetical List and select the categories you want to order.
  4. That’s it.

    The Alphabet List Option page is under Manage for version < 2.7 and under Tools for version > 2.7. If you dont find it there try to uninstall others plugin to see if there are interactions.

  2. I have tried to sort out a list of names of my wordpress site. this seemed perfect, but the list should be organized through the surname not the first name. Is there any way I could customize this plugin to work with names. I think it could be a great idea.

    I dont know what widget you are using… but you can use the default RSS widget with “your-category” feed url:
    – Organize “your-category” alphabetically
    – Then copy the feed url for this category
    – And use it on the RSS widget

    Contact me if you need more assistance.


  4. If you look at my site, the right hand widget where it says “Reviewed Online Dating Sites” is the list of all the posts which are writen in the category “Online Dating Sites”. I’d like to alphabetize that list. Can i achieve this with the plugin or do i need something different?

    The plugin works for the category page I haven’t tested it for widgets. Can you explain me what do you mean by “my categories posts widget”.
