"Query Users" widget treats all "Order by" as "Display Name"

Post by DestinyArchitect » 17 Jul 2012, 02:59

To repeat the subject expanded (since the Subject field here is way too limited as far as character count!):
Suffusion "Query Users" widget treats all "Order by" settings as apparently "Display name" so say "Order by" "post count" (key to listing which users have the top # of posts) is impossible (instead always appears sorted by "Display name").

I Google Searched for the problem but didn't find any posts on it (in fact I didn't even find any docs on the widget besides http://aquoid.com/news/themes/suffusion ... hment_1172 ).
Searching the source code http://themes.svn.wordpress.org/suffusi ... -users.php doesn't easily show the problem & fix (without carefully examining the code).

I observe this at http://1.JotHere.com/87#M7AKDD so running latest WordPress 3.4.1 in Suffusion “version 3.9.6” and latest 4.2.5.

As a random thought, perhaps it worked in earlier versions of WordPress but with WordPress's recent database upgrade, it's not working anymore.

Please help else I'll have to find & get some other widget.

You will probably have to wait for an answer / fix for this until Sayontan is back off holiday at the weekend.

I am also experiencing problems with the Query Users widget. It no longer seems possible to show just display gravatars without user details. When I set "number of users to display" to any number and "Number of users for whom all details will be displayed" to zero I get no results. This used to work on my site but now returns no result.
If anyone can get this to work then please let me know how.

Its not working for me either its sorting on username as far as I can see - nothing else - Ascending and descending is working and display is as expected just order messed up - was hoping to display by posts count!
