Is it possible to change the order of the sliders on the admin page /wp-admin/admin.php?page=new_royalslider to list by most recent (date)?

Line 177 in /wp-content/plugins/new-royalslider/classes/NewRoyalSliderManage.php:

$sliders = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM " . $prefix . "new_royalsliders ORDER BY id");

Is there a filter or way of doing this besides changing the plugin code?

    Unfortunately, there is no filter that would allow this. But I'll consider adding it.

    You may create a JS file in your child theme, include it on slider admin page (or on all admin pages), and reorder table row elements via JS. For now, it's the only way without editing plugin code.

    Also, if you have a lot of sliders that contain just images/text, consider overriding default [gallery] shortcode once.

    Ok, thank you for the reply. A filter would be great, but in the meantime I'll look into the JS solution.

    Hi Dmitry,

    Has there been any movement towards reversing the admin slider list by date or id?

    I think I filter would be the most efficient way to do this, but in the meantime, I've written the following javascript which seems to work (with a long delay due to the large number of rows of sliders):

    function gp_wp_admin_style() {
    if($_GET["page"] == "new_royalslider") { wp_enqueue_script('gp-admin', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.admin.js', 'jquery', '1.0', true); } } add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'gp_wp_admin_style' );

    Contents of jquery.admin.js:

    $.fn.reverseChildren = function() { return this.each(function(){ var $this = $(this); $this.children().each(function(){ $this.prepend(this) }); }); }; $('#new-royalslider-manage-table tbody').reverseChildren();
