There is a bit of an explanation of making sort facets here: https://facetwp.com/help-center/facets/facet-types/sort/ without any code.
My code can be pasted into any php template file or regular file. Dear programmers. I can help people with code. Can you somehow allow me you post in the support area or here. If people can share code online it will make using your plugin easier.
<form method="GET" style="text-align:right"> <select class="en1" name="orderby" id="orderby2"> <option>Date (Newest to Oldest)</option> </select> <button class="en1" type="submit">OK</button> <button class="en2" type="submit">Apply</button> </form>
Sorry it's a total mess but it was the only way I could paste it here. You can just have the original form with whatever search filters/dropdowns you like this way. Each span class en here can be a different set of terms. You can also make multiple select dropdowns just remember to set different ids. (orderby1, orderby2, etc.)
Hope they can add more code samples on the sort page. It took me almost a 6 months to figure out how to do this as there weren't any good code samples I could easily find anywhere.
Thank you for your offer to help and the code snippet. I don't want to post my contact online though, but would be nice to have a way to get help/share ideas. I'll try to put together what you sent to see what you meant, as I'm not sure I follow.
What I was hoping for was some query to sort by featured products first (by date) and the rest of the items by date after. Something like <code>meta_key' => '_featured', and "orderby" => array( 'meta_value_num' => 'DESC', 'date' => 'ASC' ). </code> In the visual builder I can't sort out how to do that or if it's possible as the formatting is different and I can't get anywhere with it. It's strange that sorting by featured products is a challenge and not an option out of the box.
Try using 3 backticks (backtick: `) above and below your code example.
<?php echo 'hello world';
_featured is an existing custom field, you could use it within the "Query" section of the layout builder: https://d.pr/i/0VT7wV
I can help you with the coding here. Can you give me a way to contact you?
