When using the Entityqueue module in Drupal 8 as a tool for editors and site admins to order content, you will end up working on the following use cases:
- Use case 1: Use Entityqueue as a filter: shows only the items chosen in the queue.
- Use case 2: Use Entityqueue as a loose sorting tool: does NOT limit the items based on queue, but prioritizes the items chosen in the queue to be displayed first, then shows the rest, perhaps in a reverse chronological order.
These are the most common use cases we use at Vardot for our clients when we build a site.
Use case 1 works perfectly if you use Entityqueue as is.
However, use case 2 does not work properly. Therefore, we have contributed (or contributed to), two patches that would make life easier to build a solid experience using the Entityqueue module in Drupal 8
