Wordpress WP_Query 'orderby' not working

My query is not ordering my posts using the

orderby
parameter.

A little background:

I'm within a foreach statement that loops through a custom taxonomy for "category" IDs. while in that foreach statement, I am attempting to invoke a new WP_Query getting posts from each "category" of that foreach loop. My args array is as follows:

$args = array(
'post_type' => 'wpsc-product',
'post_status' => 'publish',
'showposts' => -1,
'tax_query' => array(
array(
'taxonomy' => 'wpsc_product_category',
'field' => 'term_id',
'terms' => $cat_id,
),
array(
'taxonomy' => 'series',
'field' => 'slug',
'terms' => $series_name
)
),
'orderby' => 'title',
'order' => 'DESC'
);


$cat_id
and
$series_name
are both arrays from my custom taxonomies in this post_type.

orderby
and
order
are not working at all and I cannot figure this out why.

Answer

I have checked your code on my test blog. And it works as expected. So parameters

'orderby' => 'title',
'order' => 'DESC'

you have set correctly.

In this situation you can check SQL request.

$query = new WP_Query($args);
var_dump($query->request);
