How to disable sorting in Posts Table Pro

If you want to disable sorting for individual columns in your Posts Table Pro tables, please see the posts_table_column_sortable hook in the Developer Documentation.

Display all sorting

If you want to completely disable column sorting, you can use the following code. Add it to a custom plugin or inside your theme's functions.php file:

// Disable column sorting
add_filter( 'posts_table_data_config', function( $config ) {
    $config['ordering'] = false;
    return $config;
} );

Please note: this will completely disable the ability to sort the table, and means the sort_by option can no longer be used.

Disable sorting on specific pages only

The following code snippet will disable sorting in the tables on specific pages only - simply replace "144" with the ID of the page that you want to disable sorting on:

// Disable column sorting
add_filter( 'posts_table_data_config', function( $config ) {
if ( is_page(144) ) {
$config['ordering'] = false;
}
return $config;
} );
