So, I have a view (D7, Views 3) that provides a list of staff with a thumbnail image based on a location "contextual filter". Some staff members are set as "sticky" and need to appear above all the others. All staff members also need to be sorted by last name, which i'm doing with a custom php sort.
So, first, stickied staff members should be shown sorted by last name. Next, unstickied staff should be shown also sorted by last name.
Last name sort works great, but I can't get the view to group them by sticky.
Here's the php code i'm using for the last name sort:
list($fname1, $lname1) = explode(' ', $row1->title , 2); list($fname2, $lname2) = explode(' ', $row2->title , 2); return(strcasecmp($lname1,$lname2));
Any suggestions why this isn't playing nicely with sorting by sticky?
