Hello, I have an issue I can't solve by myself... I've just made a section (sym 2.2.5) and I want to order the entry of this section in the entry table by the value of a "select box link" field... however by default it seems symphony doesn't make this possible: alt text

How can I make it work? Thanks Daniele

That, I guess, is a Select Box Link field?

Due to the nature of that field containing multiple options, it can't be sorted by.

A neat little workaround is to use a Reflection field to output the value of the first item and sort by that.

A value like {entry/associato-a/item[1]/text()} should do the trick.


I didn't know Reflection Field... Thanks a lot, it works really nice!!!
