  1. Hi,
    Is there a way to have the default (when first displayed) sorted by multiple columns?
    For example, I have 3 ACF/CPT fields (Section, Lot, Plot), and I can select Section, in the table options, which works, but the other columns are unsorted.

    Any help, even a code snippet would be appreciated.
