How to disable sorting in Posts Table Pro

If you want to disable sorting for individual columns in your Posts Table Pro tables, please see the posts_table_column_sortable hook in the Developer Documentation.

If you want to completely disable column sorting in the table, you can use the following code. Add this to a custom plugin or inside your theme’s functions.php file:

Please note: this will completely disable the ability to sort the table, and means the sort_by option can no longer be used.

// Disable column sorting
add_filter( 'posts_table_inline_config', 'ptp_disable_column_sorting', 10, 2 );
function ptp_disable_column_sorting( $config, $posts_table ) {
    $config['ordering'] = false;
    return $config;
