I presently possess the following code for blocking posts for any home page in Wordpress. However, I wish to order with a custom taxonomy
EventStartDate rather than their default ones (i.e. date, title, etc.).
$cat_posts = new WP_Query( "showposts=" . $instance["num"] . "&cat=" . $instance["cat"] . "&orderby=" . $sort_by . "&order=" . $sort_order );
Any help could be much appreciated!
