Get the column names for sortable columns.


Note: It’s not documented in WP, but the second item in the nested arrays below is $desc_first. Normally, we would set last_active to be desc_first (since you’re generally interested in the most recently active group, not the least). But because the default sort for the Groups admin screen is DESC by last_active, we want the first click on the Last Active column header to switch the sort order – ie, to make it ASC. Thus last_active is set to $desc_first = false.


(array) Array of sortable column names.

	public function get_sortable_columns() {
		return array(
			'gid'         => array( 'gid', false ),
			'comment'     => array( 'name', false ),
			'members'     => array( 'members', false ),
			'last_active' => array( 'last_active', false ),
