  1. I've learnt a lot from your YouTube tutorials. You are awesome. Thanks.

      1. hai john ! can i get the codes of your videos on youtube…

  2. Hi John, I left a comment on your YouTube channel but wanted to thank you again. I was messing with an identical problem for a few days. Per my youtube comment, I had to add the keys as indices since the numerical indices were causing issues. Thank you again.

    1. No problem. Like I said over there, thanks for watching and posting your tweaks.

  3. Thanks John
    How do I extend this to sort by multiple keys? e.g age, then name.

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.
