Is sorting with basic pagination possible?

I’ve been doing some digging into why my posts are no longer sorted according to a variable in the front matter with my new pagination feature and it seems like it’s impossible in basic jekyll-paginate plugin. Is this true?

Everything else works when implemented except my i cannot sort the posts anymore by any front matter variables (date or title or post-priority numerical value).

Sounds like a question for the GH issues of that plugin. Maybe covered there already

Okay I will check it out there. Thanks
