Arrange listing attributes in an order on admin dashbooard

Hi, I have 2 requests

  1. I have 30 attributes on my listings, for easy accessibility and view, I want to rearrange them in a particular order, so that when I edit a listing on my dashboard the attributes are in that particular order on my dashboard. for easy view. and if possible group some attributes together.

  2. I have a custom field that serve as a unique identifier for each listing, but when I search it in the search box provided on the backend for admin the result is not always accurate.

return $form;

this is the code. but it is not working. can you pls check if something is wrong with it?

  1. I need properties on my website to be searchable by an attribute on the backend ( property id)
    this seems to be working but most time it returns a wrong result. the property id for each listing is unique but it still some times return a result with a different property id.
    some times the search returns nothing

please note: this is working perfectly on the front end.


  1. The snippet looks good, but make sure you specify the field attribute correctly in the code. Also, add a snippet using this doc: How to add custom code snippets - HivePress Help Center

  2. WordPress should search correctly if the attribute is marked as Indexable. Also, please note that this is a WP-level feature.

HI Andrill. How about arranging attributes on admin dashboard ?
I need this for easy view and access


If you are referring to custom fields, they automatically accept the order that you specify in Listings > Attributes. If you are referring to built-in fields, then only with the help of a custom implementation.
