Remove ‘Date’ as a sort by option

Hi,

I have removed the “Title” as a sorting option in listings but have been unable to remove the “Date” sorting option.

Could someone please help me with this?

Thanks

Please try this PHP snippet but please note that it can require further customization

add_filter(
	'hivepress/v1/forms/listing_sort',
	function( $form ) {
		unset( $form['fields']['_sort']['options'][''] );

		return $form;
	},
  1000
);

Please clarify if you want to replace it with another sorting option? Because it may be not possible to remove the Date one, it basically means “no sorting” and listings are displayed by date or relevance (if there’s a search query), some option has to be the default one.

I have created an attribute to sort the listings but the date option is the first option selected by default. The only way I could think of solving it would be to remove the date option. Unless there is a way around this?

Yes, the code snippet above will remove the default option but the sorting will remain, unfortunately there’s no easy way to select an attribute as the default sorting criteria but we have this feature on the roadmap.

I would like to set an attribute as the default sort by criteria for my listings, and remove the date as a sort option.
Listing publication date has no meaning in my (business) directory.

An option to hide the date from the interface (Listings and Listing pages) would also be nice. I now use CSS for this.

thanks a lot @yevhen!
is there a similar way to remove reviews/ratings as a sorting option?

I tried to replace ‘title’ from the previous snippet with ‘rating__asc’ or ‘rating__desc’ but it didn’t work…

thx!

If you want to remove the rating sorting option only for listings then please try this PHP snippet

add_filter( 
	'hivepress/v1/models/listing/attributes', 
	function($attributes){
		if(isset($attributes['rating'])){
			$attributes['rating']['sortable'] = false;
		}
		
		return $attributes;
	}, 
	1000 
);
