Custom Field Date Pagination Error
My site is running WordPress 4.9.1 using Admin Columns Pro 4.1.1.
I’m having an issue when I sort my “Items” post type by my custom date field called “Item Date”. The columns are sorting properly by the date, the issue is with the pagination. I can successfully click on the forward and backward arrows to navigate between each page list of items one by one, but if I go try to manually go from page 1 to say page 3 or page 12 (by typing the number in the pagination navigation bar) the columns returns a blank list of items. This is only happening when I have the columns sorted by my custom date field. If I reset sorting and sort by anything else, the pagination works fine.
We only have 1 function on the backend that’s doing any customization to the admin columns and when I remove that function I’m still getting the error. I also turned off everything that I possibly could on my theme’s function file and disabled plugins to try and fix the issue, but it was still happening. So I don’t believe that there’s anything in my theme or plugins that are causing the issue.
I may or may not have a solution, but I’m not sure why this works or what is causing this. After I type in a number in the pagination navigation bar and hit enter, I notice that the URL returns several parameters as listed below:
Most of these parameters make sense to be here, but I wasn’t sure what some of theme were doing in this instance. So, I started removing parameters from the URL one by one and found that if I remove
&s from the parameter string and then run the URL… the list of items returns successfully. So basically run the URL like so:
It’s very strange and I’m not sure why that allows the query to run successfully since the
s parameter is typically used as WordPress’ default search parameter and really shouldn’t affect the column queries. Is it possible that there’s a bug in the plugin that’s conflicting with the pagination? Or is there any other reason you can think that my custom date field would be messing up the pagination?
