I would like to use the plugin so if I have 2 articles :

- the first named Mickey with tags A, B and C - the second named Daisy, with tags A and B

Then, somebody who wants to see :

- articles with tag A see both of them - articles with tag A or C, both of them - articles with tag A and C, only Mickey

Is that possible with your plugin ?

Thank you !

The conditioning of the plugin is OR not AND. So pretty much everything is possible except the last part (- articles with tag A and C, only Mickey). So if you have any tags when you select them it will give you the articles that contain at least one of the tags.

If you want you can use different taxonomies to create an AND condition. For example if you have a article 1 with TAG 1 and Category 1, and article 2 with Tag 1 and Category 2, if you select Category 1 and Tag 1 it will only give you the first article because the later is filtered by the category.

Hi. I was wondering if it is posible to change the way the plugin look like via CSS without hacking the plugin?

Not sure what you mean, of course you can change the layouts by changing the CSS styles.

Hi there. I just bought your plugin but got the following error when trying to active it: “Fatal error: Class ‘sortable’ not found in /home/susieyt2014/public_html/teamrhinostrong.com/wp-content/plugins/tags-categories-sortable/tags-categories-sortable.php on line 17”

Could you please help me?


This is add-on to the Sortable plugin.


i am having hard time with this add on. I wanted to change the size of the pictures displayed (.sort-image-wrap { background-size:cover !important; height:300px; } )

Instead of 300px height i wanted to use 150px height so i have edited this css but i have a fatal error after saving on line 17 on the following file : tags-categories-sortable.php

Even if i replace with the original css, i keep having this fatal error and the only way to put my website online again is to remove both plugins (sortable and the tag category sortable add on) and reinstall it.

My question is simple, how can i make these pictures smaller using your css file (ideally 150px height instead of 300px) without breaking your code ?

You are probably using the WP admin area editor, not downloading via FTP/deploying via SSH, correct? What type of server do you have – shared, dedicated, cloud? If you want to use that editor, you will probably need to disable the categories addon before you start editing files. If that doesn’t help please send us a link to your website at support@wpicode.com so we can take a look.

ok so I would to add a tag called post codes to my word press post I’am using the avada theme does your plugin do this and will the tag be shown on display

Yes though postcodes wouldn’t be a perfect example. How many post codes do you have? If you have more than 20 than the display would be a bit cluttered.

You will have to ask the theme creators. This plugin is initiated by a simple shortcode so if there is enough space for the theme to insert this shortcode you should be fine.

Hello, I bought this plugin and want to know if it’s possible to only show 5 categories in the sort instead of showing every category. I only want to sort posts that have one of these 5 categories (not all). These 5 categories have 1 parent category. The default category could be the parent category and then have the other 5 appear as options? Was wondering if you could point me in the right direction in doing this.

Yes you can see the id of the category (in the example is 7) you want to hide and then do something like:

#category\*7 { display:none; }

Then repeat the same for all categories you want to hide (if not too many) and include it in the CSS.

If you have too many categories you can just hide all categories then show the ones you want to be displayed:

ul.sortable-taxonomy-ul li {display:none;}
ul.sortable-taxonomy-u #category\*7 { display:inherit; }

Hello, I bought this plugin and when I tried to activate it, says: “Fatal error: Class ‘sortable’ not found in /home/gplvta81/public_html/estudiosluiko.net/wp-content/plugins/tags-categories-sortable/tags-categories-sortable.php on line 17.”

Yes this plugin is an ADDON to the Sortable plugin which you can buy from here – http://wpicode.com/sortable/

Hello, can I make the filter results without images? I want only the titles of the posts when I do the search on the filter.

Regars, Steven

Yes you can just add:
.sortable-views .sortable-images { display:none;}
to your style, whether in your child theme or the plugin css file in the css folder of the plugin.

Hi Wpicode,

I have a pre-sales question:

My users have a field in their profile that lets them choose the categories they wish to view on their profile page. Can i use a shortcode or placeholder with your plugin to specify which categories to display on the page?

For example, if my clients have chosen Cat1 & Cat3 in their profile could i use my {client_cats} placeholder with your plugin to display those categories only on the front end?



You will need to edit some PHP files for this specific thing. You will probably need to hire a programmer for these features. Sorry not sure that this plugin is the right thing for you.

Hi I am trying to activate the Tags & Categories Sortable Addon plugin and I am getting this error Fatal error: Class ‘sortable’ not found in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/tags-categories-sortable/tags-categories-sortable.php on line 17

Please advise

Yeah this is an addon to the Sortable plugin. Without the Sortable plugin it doesn’t work.

I have just bought your plugin and installed it. I get this error and can’t have it activated. Could you pls advice? A prompt response would be much appreciated!

Fatal error: Class ‘sortable’ not found in /home/m-appeal/ilovejiyugaoka.com/public_html/layout-casa/cms/wp-content/plugins/tags-categories-sortable/tags-categories-sortable.php on line 17

Yes you either need the premium Sortable plugin or Sortable Lite free version, should be available soon. Send us an email and we will send you a link to it.

Thanks. I have just a few hours ago found out about it. (and, it has been talked about here, too…) Well. It’s a bit confusing. I could not tell those add-ons required another plugin from your product page.

It is available here – https://wordpress.org/plugins/sortable-lite/ this is a free version, so not every feature is available.

Hi, I have recieved a fatal error(cannot find class ‘sortable’) apparently I was meant to download the tags-categories-sortable.zip. Where can I find this file?

You need to install Sortable – https://www.wpicode.com/sortable or the Sortable Lite plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/sortable-lite/

Please, i’ve found this error to install: Fatal error: Class ‘sortable’ not found in /home/obser037/public_html/wp-content/plugins/tags-categories-sortable/tags-categories-sortable.php on line 17

Yeah this is an addon plugin of Sortable, so it won’t work without it. You can also use Sortable Lite which is free of charge.

Ok. I got it, thanks! In “SortablePages” Area i could set some page to be sortable, however, its not appearing the header or whatever content that i created on that page: http://observatoriodepraticas.com.br/biblioteca/. There is a way to appears other content beyond the sortable fields?

does it work for woocommerce products?

Live Preview is not working. I’m interested in purchasing.

Sorry, wrong link here is correct http://wpicode.com/sortable-categories
