    We would like to be able to sort by specific item in the Faculty's account on the Faculty Page. We will probably go first or last name, not sure which.

    Hi Tyler,

    Thanks for the question. Currently, we\'re not including these options with the stock theme. That said, if you\'d like to customize the template file, I can provide some of the basics to help out with ordering the output. I should be clear, though, that this type of customization is beyond the scope of our support and only offered as additional information. The work is still going to be up to you. I highly recommend using a child theme if you are planning on making any alterations to the core theme files to ensure that you don\'t loose any of your work in the event of an update.

    Okay, so navigate to wp-content/themes/polytechnic/template-faculty-grid.php and scroll down to line 110 (see screenshot). Here, you\'ll see that this is being managed with some basic WP-Query args for ordering. Feel free to change the args as needed, and if you need a reference - check out the Codex: https://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters

    Beyond that, I recommend touching base with a freelancer that can help with your custom request.

    Hope that helps!

    Regards,
    Charles

    I Charles, sorry it took so long to get back to you but here is our template file and it looks a little different than what you have.  I see the order by but it says display name BUT it's ordering by email address.  Here is our site address http://www.shermanoaksces.com/portfolio/our-faculty/
