Article_custom sort by variable

Hi,
I’m trying to sort article_custom in the same order as I entered the articles id’s to it,

<txp:variable name="the_articles" value="1,4,2,5,3" />

<txp:article_custom id='<txp:variable name="the_articles" />' time="any" sort='<txp:variable name="the_articles" />'>
	<txp:article_id /><br/>
</txp:article_custom>

this isn’t working,
so I will love to know how to get this to work to keep the same order as in the variable please.

Hi Gil,

try sort='FIELD(ID,<txp:variable name="the_articles" />)'

Re: Article_custom sort by variable

This particular, obscure trick was taught to us by ruud, developer emeritus.

You could browse the user documentation or TXPTips to see if you find more magic tricks. Then, share them!
