HI
After logging into back office traverse to widgets -> sidebar -> add widget ->Content Listing Widgets: select universal item list
it creates widget for sidebar. when i choose to edit this widget in Params block there is option available "ORDER BY" it has option : Order (as explicitly specified)". [highlighted in 2nd screenshot]. But i didn't find any way to specify the rule explicitly. How does this option work , please explain.
Thanks

Each post has the option of Order so 1, 1.5, 2, 2.22 etc You can use decimals

BY the way : In the description of the problem it's better to be clearer about the problem.
Widgets usage - back office doesn't describe the problem. The name of the widget etc in the title would make it easier for others to search for the same issue -

For example try using [ordering posts] in the search box at the top of this forum

Also for example [https://b2evolution.net/man/universal-item-list-widget]

There are a number of way to find solutions to queries and having a good description in a Post query, when you have exhausted the search and docs options help others with hard to find answers :)

I would add that there are little blue question mark & book icons all over the back office and clicking on one, usually takes you to the plugin page or a page in the docs. I say usually because occasionally, it takes you to a 404 page.

Hi
In " universal item list widget", while editing this particular widget, i have selected "Number of members who have viewed the post (If tracking enabled)" for "order by" as shown in screenshot 1.
Question1
In which table the number of views stored in database?

Question2
I had disabled tracking from collections/features/ more -> Tracking of unread content [screenshot 2]
Still item list is appearing in front office. How does this tracking mapped to widget option?

Reading your query
Do you still have tracking disabled yet the widget displays although it's order by option is based on tracking?
What order are the items ??

Ok so the list may be correct in that it is in the order of views and all you want do do is to check with the database. Is that it?

Such info is likely to be in the [items] table

I am looking but as I don't have tracking enabled I'm not sure I can identify it by count so will look at the numberous sub-tables and fields :)

@amoun , gone through [items] table thoroughly,and other[ items] related tables as well. couldn't find any column for tracking related info.
