1.1 Introduction and Full Video Guide

For the best experience with the WooCommere Product Filter plugin please read the documentation and watch the full video guide.

Product Filter for WooCommerce is the plugin that extends your WooCommerce Shop by adding filtering methods for your products. The filter plugin is very veristile and can be installed in numerous ways. The most common setups are Product Filter in Sidebar, as filtering widgets and the Product Filter on Top, as the filter bar on top of the products list. Both methods support AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) calls, this means that filtering can be done without refreshing the page, but rather on page while refreshing only the products list. AJAX use with the Product Filter is optional. For a good kick start watch the full video and then continue to your installation. If you use a theme that is listed in the Specific Theme Installations, then just follow the installation instructions. If your theme is not listed check the Shop/Product Archives Integration and Installations section to install the filter properly.

After installation, please navigate to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Register and Automatic Updates and enter your Codecanyon.net purchase code to get automatic updates and more! Thanks for your purchase!

PLEASE NOTE! This video is recorded for the Product Filter 2.3.0 vesion! We have moved far from then! Please at first read the full documentation as it has a lot of information and then watch the full video guide. The video will be updated soon! Thank you for your patience!

1.4 Product Filter Shop/Archive Integration

The most common way to use the Product Filter is in your Shop and Product Archive pages!

Most common way to use the filter is in your Shop/Product Archives. Upon installation Product Filter tries to install itself in the default manner by replacing your WooCommerce orderby.php and result-count.php templates. If you are using a quality theme, which means that it is not too good or too bad, this default installation will work just fine. So, by default installation, your order by select box and the product result count on your Shop/Product Archives will be replaced with the Product Filter. If you have a theme that customizes these in a way, then the filters might be out of place, but do not panic, because this is just automatic install and Product Filter has a lot more installing features that will surely fit your site. The author of the Product Filter for WooCommerce advises users to use either the Custom Action or the Widget mode, because they are more configurable.

For settings on installing the Product Filter in your Shop and Product Archives please navigate to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Installation and Advanced Options.

1.4.1 Override Default WooCommerce Templates - Shop/Archive Installation

When overriding it is important to have a good theme that supports it!

This method is used only for default themes such as TwentyTwelwe, TwentyThirteen, or similar, Woo Themes Directory Themes or some other themes that will support these features by default. This is also the default installation for the Product Filter. When using this mode your Product Filter Shop/Product Archive Installation will be set to Override Default WooCommerce Templates. Once this is set you will need to choose which elements to override. Select which templates to override in the Select Filtering Templates setting. Both or only one of them. A successfully set installation like this, with a theme that supports it, will show the Product Filter on your Shop and Archive Pages instead of the original orderby.php and result-count.php loop templates and the option for Select Filtering Templates would include both settings.

However, this is not the best way to install the filter in your shop, but it is a quick and automatic one, if supported. So, if you are fine with it then head to Default Filter and Filter Presets settings which can be found in WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter to setup your filters! For further read on how to setup the filter please visit the Settings section.

1.4.2 Widget Mode - Shop/Archive Installation

Widgets are elements in sidebar! Filters can be widgets too!

When using filters in website sidebars as widgets your setting for Product Filter Shop/Product Archive Installation will be set to Use Widget. This option is set in the Installation and Installation and Advanced Options WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Installation and Advanced Options.

Save the settings and navigate to Appearance > Widgets. Add the + Product Filter widget to your sidebar and the widget settings will appear. The important thing is that you should setup your Product Filter widget in the Default Filter and Filter Presets settings which can be found in WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter. The widget version only adds these filters to your sidebars, but all cofiguration is done in the WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Default Filter and Filter Presets settings page. For further read on widgets visit the Widget section and for further read on how to setup the filter please visit the Settings section.

1.4.3 Custom Action - Shop/Archive Installation

The best possible way, of course if you do not want widgets ;)

The most customizable mode will be the Custom Action. For this mode your Product Filter Shop/Product Archive Installation will be set to Custom Action. Once set, action is used to initialize the filter output at desired place. This action is set in the Product Filter Init Action setting. The most common basic action that can be used is the woocommerce_before_shop_loop action. This is a default action that should be in every WordPress template that supports WooCommerce. This action is triggered at the top of the products list on your Shop or Product Archive pages. This action also triggers your default orderby.php and result-count.php templates. Actions have priorities. By default priorities for orderby.php is 20 and result-count.php is 30. We can also setup priority for the Product Filter. So if we set the action to woocommerce_before_shop_loop:40 the filter will be shown just bellow these two templates. By default filter priority is 10 and if no priority is defined within the action (without the :40) the filter will be shown on top of these templates. A good action to hook onto, for themes that support it, in order not to lose the filter when no products are found is the woocommerce_archive_description:50.

Sometimes the templates have their own custom actions and do not use WooCommerce default actions. This means that your woocommerce_before_shop_loop will not show the filter on Shop or Product Archives. If this is the case you can still check your theme folder for a directory named /woocommerce/. Here you will find the archive-product.php. You can edit this file to find the appropriate action to initialize your filter output. Basically you will look for a do_action( 'action-name' ); code and copy the action name to the Product Filter Init Action setting.

1.4.4 AJAX Shop/Archive Installation

How to properly install AJAX?

If you have followed previous steps to install filter at appropriate place in your Shop/Product Archives you can try installing the AJAX functions as well. Some theme specific installations can be found in the Specific Themes Installations section. If your theme is not listed follow this guide to install it properly.

If the default AJAX settings are not working, your template has made some adjustments to the original WooCommerce structure and need configuration to work properly. To setup AJAX you will need to adjust your theme jQuery selectors that get the product wrapper, products and pagination. The default structure looks similar as the following.

In this default structure, we have a 1. ul.products which is our product wrapper. The corresponding AJAX Wrapper jQuery Selector, which if left blank will use the default value and look like this $('ul.products') will be used when searching for the products wrapper in page. If your theme does not have the ul.products element that wraps your Shop products, you will need to adjust your wrapper jQuery selector to suit your theme. All selectors are set in the same way. If the original, default value is changed by your theme, then its AJAX jQuery Selector setting needs a proper value, so AJAX can function as expected. In the Specific Themes Installations we have covered some popular themes and their installation options. Lets check more elements that need adjustment if the theme is altering them. Number 2. li.type-product element which is our AJAX Product jQuery Selector. The 3. nav.woocommerce-pagination element is our AJAX Pagination jQuery Selector. These three are needed to setup AJAX correctly. Some themes change these classes and structures as you can see in the Specific Themes Installations Section. Further you can setup the 4. .woocommerce-results-count, or Result Count jQuery Selector, and 5. .woocommerce-ordering, or Result Count jQuery Selector if you use these in your Shop/Product Archives. Some themes also use different pagination functions and not the default WooCommerce pagination.php template. These can also be supported, as Kallyas theme is by naming the custom pagination function that is used in the Custom Pagination Function setting. For Kallays theme the pagination function that is called is named zn_woocommerce_pagination.

1.4.5 Manual Installation Options - Shop/Archive Installation

Editing files and inserting filters manually.

Templates that do not have any actions in the archive-product.php can be customized to show the Product Filter with its own action. For this purpose you will edit your code (in most cases the archive-product.php) and insert the PHP code with the Product Filter action. The code will look like this.

<?php do_action( 'prdctfltr_output' ); ?>

This will show the filter, but the filter will be default one. If you want to setup settings for this filter such as presets, classes or similar then you will use the following method.

<?php echo do_shortcode( '[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-cool-preset"]' ); ?>

Basically this will execute the shorcode for showing only the filter. For more on this shortcode you can read in the [prdctfltr_sc_get_filter] - Show Filters section.

Upon successful Custom Action installation head to Default Filter and Filter Presets settings which can be found in WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter to setup your filters! For further read on how to setup the filter please visit the Settings section.

1.4.6 Highly Customizable Installation Options - Shop/Archive Installation

When everything fails, or you are a PRO and in need for more!

As noted in previous section Product Filter has its own action that can be inserted directly in any template file and called when executing the code. For this purose you can use the following code. When using manual installation it is important to set the Product Filter Shop/Product Archives Installation to Custom Action, but the Product Filter Init Action should be empty.

<?php do_action( 'prdctfltr_output' ); ?>

This will show the filter, but the filter will be default one. If you want to setup settings for this filter such as presets, classes or similar then you will use the following method.

<?php echo do_shortcode( '[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-cool-preset"]' ); ?>

Basically this will execute the shorcode for showing only the filter. For more on this shortcode you can read in the [prdctfltr_sc_get_filter] - Show Filters section.

Another way to install the Product Filter onto a custom action is from a Child Theme functions.php file. This is the way of the professional. To install it this way use the following code:

<?php
	function product_filter_add_1241365sltgdkhg() {
		do_action( 'prdctfltr_output' );
	}
	add_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description', 'product_filter_add_1241365sltgdkhg', 50 );
?>

This will also show the filter, but the filter will still be default one. If you want to setup settings for this filter such as presets, classes or similar then you will use the following method.

<?php
	function product_filter_add_1241365sltgdkhg() {
		echo do_shortcode( '[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-cool-preset"]' );
	}
	add_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description', 'product_filter_add_1241365sltgdkhg', 50 );
?>

This function basically does the same when you set the Product Filter Shop/Product Archive Installation to Custom Action, but with a twist. Now you can do anything and control the filter the way you want it. The important thing is that you have a good action to work with. In the above example the woocommerce_archive_description to keep filter when the no products are found, but this function is not integrated in all themes. A good substitute will be the woocommerce_before_shop_loop action. You can even add your own action in your themes archive-product.php and hook onto those.

Now, what are the customizations that you can make with this code. Here are some samples.

PLEASE NOTE: These codes are only used by professionals when dealing with custom installations!

SAMPLE 1 : Shows default filter only on categories with slugs pants and trousers

<?php
	function product_filter_add_12asnbc65sltgdkhg() {
		if ( is_product_category( array( 'pants', 'trousers') ) ) {
			do_action( 'prdctfltr_output' );
		}
	}
	add_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description', 'product_filter_add_12asnbc65sltgdkhg', 50 );
?>

SAMPLE 2 : Shows filter only on Shop using filter preset "my-cool-preset"

<?php
	function product_filter_add_12asni32uyg6okhg() {
		if ( is_shop() ) {
			echo do_shortcode( '[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-cool-preset"]' );
		}
	}
	add_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description', 'product_filter_add_12asni32uyg6okhg', 50 );
?>

SAMPLE 3 : Shows default filter everywhere, but not on Shop

<?php
	function product_filter_add_12liuyttpoikhg() {
		if ( !is_shop() ) {
			do_action( 'prdctfltr_output' );
		}
	}
	add_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description', 'product_filter_add_12liuyttpoikhg', 50 );
?>

3.1.2 AJAX Shortcodes

AJAX shortcodes are awesome!

To create a AJAX shortcode all you need to do is add the parameter ajax="yes" to your shortcode syntax. Here is a example:

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" ajax="yes"]

This shortcode will now filter and paginate products right from the page without leaving it. You can also add multiple AJAX shortcodes in any page. The sample code follows.

<h2>Winter Collection</h2>
[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="1" ajax="yes" product_cat="winter" preset="my-winter-filter-preset"]
<h2>Summer Collection</h2>
[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="1" ajax="yes" product_cat="summer" preset="my-summer-filter-preset"]

3.1.3 Shortcode Samples

Here are some useful samples!

To insert products from a category use the following code. These codes can also be used for product tags and characteristcs, just use product_tag="my-tag-slug" or product_characteristics="my-characteristics-slug" instead of the product_cat parameter shown in the examples.

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" product_cat="my-category-slug-1" ajax="yes"]

This will show the products from category with a slug my-category-slug-1

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" product_cat="my-category-slug-1,my-category-slug-2" ajax="yes"]

This will show the products from category with a slug my-category-slug-1 OR my-category-slug-2

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" product_cat="my-category-slug-1+my-category-slug-2" ajax="yes"]

This will show the products from category with a slug my-category-slug-1 AND my-category-slug-2

More parameters like these are min_price="100", max_price="400", sale_products="on", instock_products="in" which can define the product lists. Examples follow.

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" min_price="100" max_price="400" product_cat="my-category-slug-1,my-category-slug-2" ajax="yes"]

This will show the products from category with a slug my-category-slug-1 OR my-category-slug-2 in the price range of 100-400

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" sale_products="on" instock_products="in" product_tag="my-tag-slug-1" ajax="yes"]

This will show the products tagged with a slug my-tag-slug-1 that are on sale and in stock

Advanced parameter http_query="product_cat=my-category-slug-1,my-category-slug-2" can be used to show any product query. The query supports any parameter that WP Query supports. Insert the query array phrased with the PHP function http_build_query. Samples follow.

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" http_query="product_cat=my-category-slug-1,my-category-slug-2" ajax="yes"]

This will show the products from category with a slug my-category-slug-1 OR my-category-slug-2, although it is added in the http_query as shown in the example, it will act as the product_cat="my-category-slug-1,my-category-slug-2" parameter.

[prdctfltr_sc_products rows="2" http_query="product_cat=my-category-slug-1,my-category-slug-2&meta_key=my_custom_metakey&meta_value=yes" ajax="yes"]

This will show the products from category with a slug my-category-slug-1 OR my-category-slug-2 that have a my_custom_metakey postmeta assigned to it which value is set to yes

3.2 [prdctfltr_sc_get_filter] - Show Filters

Use this shortcode to show only filters in pages or for custom action installations!

To display only filters on page use the [prdctfltr_sc_get_filter] shortcode. This shortcode can display filters wherever inserted. Custom action installations with different presets can use this function to achieve the most.

3.2.1 Basic Use and Parameters

Learn the basics of adding filter to your pages and custom shortcode installations!

To output a filter with the default preset use the following code in any of your pages:

[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter]

The Product Filter [prdctfltr_sc_get_filter] shortcode accepts parameters which can be set in this way:

[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-cool-preset" class="my-filter-class"]

Supported parameters that can be used within the Product Filter shortcode are listed in the following table.

Parameters Settings
preset="" Preset slug to override the default filter setup. If you have named your preset to My New Preset then your slug will be my-new-preset
ajax="yes" Use AJAX load on current shortcode. If you do not want AJAX set this parameter to no
action="" Set a custom action for the filter (URL of the page that filter will redirect on filtering)
shortcode_id="" Add ID to your shortcode ( e.g. class="my-id-1" )
class="" Add classes to your shortcode ( e.g. class="my-class my-class-2" )

3.2.2 Shortcode Samples

Here are some useful samples!

To insert default filter anywhere use the Product Filter shortcode as in example.

[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter]

This will show the default filter when inserted

To use presets you will need to add the preset="my-cool-preset" parameter.

[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-cool-preset"]

This will show the filter with the preset my-cool-preset

This shortcode can be used for showing filters at certain places you can add shortcodes too. It can even be used for installation, but if you insert the shortcode on Shop page, when browsing categories or taxonomies or any product archives, the filter will not be shown as it only set to display in the Shop page. If you add this shortcode to your wp-content/themes/your-theme/archive-product.php directly it will be shown on Shop and the Product Archives. This method can also be used as an installation for troubling themes. The code that should be inserted in the archive-product.php to get the filter follows.

<?php echo do_shortcode('[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter]'); ?>

This will show the default filter from the PHP code

<?php echo do_shortcode('[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-cool-preset"]'); ?>

This will show the filter with the preset my-cool-preset

4. Widget - Product Filter for WooCommerce

Filtering widgets for all sidebars!

4.1 Basic Use on Shop/Archives

Filter widgets work from your directly sidebars!

Product Filter widget can be used with the Shop and the Product Prchives. If you are going to use widget version with your Shop and Product Archives make sure you selected the Use Widget in the WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Installation and Advanced Options tab under the Product Filter Shop/Product Archives Installation. Detailed installation instructions can be found in the Product Filter Shop/Archive Integration under the How to install? section.

Inserted widgets in sidebars are used to define the location of the Product Filter widgets. All filter settings are still set in the WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter. So, at first setup your filters there and then add the + Product Filter widget to the sidebar you want. A few basic settings can be set within the widget interface and some of the styling options from the Product Filter settings page will not work as they are only reserved for the "On Top Filters".

4.2 Shortcodes and Widgets

Shortcodes can be used with widgets too!

Your product lists generated with the Product Filter shortcode can be controlled with a Product Filter widgets right from the sidebar. To setup a basic page with this feature, you will need a page with a custom sidebar in which you will add the + Product Filter widget and a shortcode in the page content. The shortcode sample follows:

[prdctfltr_sc_products use_filter="no"]

The parameter use_filter="no" disables the filter in the shortcode, meaning that it will only output the products list. This list can now be filtered with the Product Filter widget.

4.3 AJAX and Widgets

Widgets work great with the AJAX function!

Product Filter widgets can also be used with the AJAX function. If used with Shop and Product Archives, widgets can use AJAX by simply checking the Use AJAX On Product Archives setting in the WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Advanced Settings. Also AJAX settings need to be set. For detailed instruction on this you need to read the Product Filter Shop/Archive Integration under the How to install? section. If AJAX is setup properly your widgets will be able to filter the products on Shop and Product Archive pages.

If you want to use AJAX widgets with the shortcode, at first create a page with the + Product Filter widget, then add your shortcode in the page and add the parameter ajax="yes" to it. The sample code follows.

[prdctfltr_sc_products use_filter="no" ajax="yes"]

5. FAQ and How to?

The most fun section for sure! Tips and tricks that will get you places!

5.1 Product Filter short guidelines and begginers tips

To use a filter properly follow these steps.

  • Read this article! http://community.envato.com/utilize-product-filter-specific-ecommerce-niches/
  • Register your product to get free automatic updates!
  • Use product attributes to sort out your products by all kinds of terms. Do not put everything in categories or in tags as you will have issues! Read here how to organize your Shop http://community.envato.com/utilize-product-filter-specific-ecommerce-niches/
  • Add as many filters as you need for your pages! They will work together!
  • Use Filter Overrides option to create overrides for your filters. This option will allow you to setup different filters layouts throughout your shop.
  • Use quality themes that support the filter!
  • Use filter style customizations and create awesome looking filters, just use the paint bucket tool!
  • Filter Overrides will not work as expected if multi select setting on categories filter is active, so please do not use it together.
  • If your theme does not support the default WooCommerce templates and therefore the product archives filter is not initiated or you have troubles installing the filter, try using the widget filter instead. You will get the same results from the sidebar. Check the manual for installing the Product Filter on certain templates or request a specific theme installation guide.
  • Your variable products, when using the attribute filters, will be sorted by the assigned attributes, not your variations. Try to organize your attributes in the best possible manner.

Q: What is Adoptive Filtering?

Adoptive Filtering will filter your terms as well as the products. This means that terms that are not associated with the product results will be hidden. In each preest in the General Settings adoptive filtering can be set. The adoptive settings are explained in the Settings Section. Basically you will set when it is active, if it is always active then these queries will be run everytime the filter is shown. This can be also setup to show only on filters or taxonomies and filers for optimization purposes. Adoptive Filtering Dependencies are used to limit on which active filters this method will be initiated. If you are using product categories permalinks and you just want the terms shown in the filter to be associated with the category permalink you are visiting, then you can set the dependencies to the product categoires (product_cat). If you are using brands or other taxonomies you can also set its dependencies to that taxonomy, meaning pa_brands or similar. Terms can also be either hidden or shown, clickable or not.

Q: I want to create Step Filters! How do I do it?

This is really simple. Create a custom preset and save it. Now, on demo pages usually columns are set to 1 to look more form like, but you can choose any options and settings for your filter. In our demos we have used Adoptive Filtering to show when some terms are available and when not, you can do this too. Once this is all done go to your page and where you want to output this filter use the following code:

[prdctfltr_sc_products preset="your-preset-name" action="http://your-url.com/page-to-show-results" show_products="no" ajax="yes"]

On this page everything will be automatic. Now we need to setup a page to receive the filtering data. For this you can use your Shop page or the regular page with the Product Filter shortcode. So, if you want the Shop page, in your step filter shortcode the parameter action should be set this way action="http://yout-url.com/your-shop-page". If you do not want to use Shop page you can use any regular page, but it need to have the Product Filter shortcode which will pick up the filtering data. There are no special options for this shortcode, use as an ordinary shortcode, the filter will be processed accordingly. Widgets are also supported.

Q: Clear All button does not do what it should. How to set it up?

The new version (5.8.3) of the Product Filter for WooCommerce changed things a bit. Now you have a option in your WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Installation and Advanced Options called Clear All Action. Filters will appear in the select field. Select which filters will not be cleared by the Clear All button. Usually, either categories or your brands will be selected here, but you can also disable Clear All on sort by filters or similar. Use CTRL+Click to select multiple filters that will not be affected or to deselect them. When none of the filters are selected the Clear All button will clear all the filters, meaning usually it will redirect to the Shop page.

Q: Output Product Filter element anywhere?

For use in custom themes, for custom Product Filter outputs in theme templates, for professionals, or just bad themes that dont follow the WooCommerce template defaults. Use this code to insert the Product Filter in any template.

 <?php do_action('prdctfltr_output'); ?>

But if you want to add a certain preset you will need to use the shortcode. The code follows.

 <?php echo do_shortcode('[prdctfltr_sc_products preset="my-cool-preset"]'); ?>

Basically this will execute the shorcode for showing only the filter. For more on this shortcode you can read in the [prdctfltr_sc_get_filter] - Show Filters section.

Q: Create custom action filter (FORM URL ACTION="")?

To create a custom action filter, meaning that a filter will redirect on another page when filtered you will need to create a page with the following shortcode:

[prdctfltr_sc_products show_products="no" action="http://mihajlovicnenad.com/product-filter/creative/shop/"]

The target action page can be either your shop page, product archive pages or a page containing a Product Filter shortcode with the following parameters:

[prdctfltr_sc_products use_filter="no"]

In the action trigger page we set that we do not want to show products but only filter, and we set the action="http://mihajlovicnenad.com/product-filter/creative/shop/", which sets the filter to redirect to that URL when filtering. On the page we are receiving filtering data by settings the parameter use_filter="no" we will skip the Product Filter and show only filtered products.

Q: I want filter on certain categories only! How can I do this?

The new Product Filter 5.3.9 introduced Product Filter Restriction options. Navigate to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Product Filter Overrides and Restrictions and in the Show Filter On Categories setting select the categories you want the filter to appear. Use CTRL+Click to select or deselect all categories. If you want to further disable the filter on Shop page the option can be found inWooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Installation and Advanced Options under the Enable/Disable Shop Page Product Filter setting.

Q: Create AJAX widget filters with the shortcode?

In order to create an AJAX widget filter with the shortcode follow these steps. PLEASE NOTE This is not how you create AJAX filtering on your Shop and Product Archive pages! For this read the Product Filter Shop/Archive Integration under the How to install? section!

Step 1 - Create a page with the + Product Filter widget in the sidebar

Step 2 - Add the following shortcode to your page:

[prdctfltr_sc_products use_filter="no" ajax="yes"]

This will automatically link widget to the AJAX shortcode.

Q: Create different filter presets for specific categories?

The Product Filter for WooCommerce plugin lets you use different filters for each of your product categories or sub-categories, or even tags and characteristics. To do this you need to create filter presets and use overrides, all done on the plugin settings page.

First create a filter preset you want to use on your categories. You can set any options you want for your preset. Set simple names for your presets (like "men-jackets", "women-shoes", etc.). Now, go to the Filter Overrides tab where you will see two drop downs, one for all of the categories in your Shop and one for your saved filter presets. Choose a category and the filter preset which you want to use on that category and click on the Add Override button. If you set an override for a category and not for its sub-categories, the sub-categories filter will show the parent filter preset. For custom pages, you can use the shortcode with the preset="preset-name" parameter to display a specific filter preset on that custom page. If you want to disable overrides in your shortcode just use the disable_overrides="yes" parameter.

Q: Set up correlated advanced filters of the same taxonomy type?

One of the amazing features of the Product Filter for WooCommerce, the Advanced Filter, lets you filter through all of your product taxonomies, including custom ones and you can add an unlimited number of Advanced Filters in your filter presets, but this is not all it does. The Advanced Filters can also communicate with one another in order to let you set them up to be in a IN or AND relation.

To do this, add two Advanced Filters in the Filter Manager section, select same taxonomy and its terms you want to filter with them, check the Multi Select and set their Multi Select Relation to AND. Now, if both Advanced Filters are set to use the same Multi Select Relation they will work in unison with each other, meaning they will show product who have both of the filtered Advanced Filter taxonomy terms. Of course this is only when you are using multiple Advanced Filters of the same taxonomy type and it is not needed for simpler filters which can be set with basic settings.

Q: Translating Product Filter, WPML, qTranslate?

Product Filter for WooCommerce supports translations and WPML Multilingual CMS plugin for WordPress. Plugin is localized in German, French, Spanish, Italian and Dutch language, files for the UK and US versions are also included. Translations will be automatically pulled from the /wp-content/plugins/prdctfltr/lang/ for these languages. Before the /lang/ directory is checked, plugin will also check the /wp-content/languages/plugins/ directory for language files. If you want to alter any strings or just override with your translations you can copy the files from the /lang/ directory to it and change needed strings. Using this plugin managing multilingual sites is easy. Before starting this procces make sure you have the WPML software installed on your WordPress installation. More on WPML ( WordPress Multilingual ) see at this link http://wpml.org/. Not only WPML is supported, you can use qTranslate too and similar software.

Translation files for the Product Filter for WooCommerce are in the /translations/ folder in the full plugin archive you have downloaded from http://codecanyon.net. Here you can also find the default .POT language file from which you can make your own translation files. Translation files can also be found in the plugin folder /lang/. From this folder plugin reads the already localized languages. If your language does not exists in this folder follow the steps to translate the plugin in your language.Use Poedit to update and translate the files.

  • 1. Get Poedit App. http://poedit.net/download
  • 2. Run Poedit. Navigate File>New catalog from POT file. Fill in the basic fields, set your country, language.
  • 3. Translate the strings by clicking on a sentance and filling in the textarea bellow. If strange characters accure like %1$d, just ignore them and make a translation in between including these strange characters.
  • 4. Save your file as prdctfltr-**LANGUAGE**.po **LANGUAGE** represents your language code. For instance if you're translating to Italian your language code is it_IT and the file name should be prdctfltr-it_IT.po ( language codes: de_DE (Germany), fr_FR (France) etc.)
  • 5. Upload the .po and the .mo file generated by Poedit to your WordPress installation in the /wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder If the folder does not exists create one.
  • *** If you have already translated the file with the previous Product Filter version, copy the .po file in your unzipped local copy of Product Filter in the /lang/ folder (if it doesn't exsist just create one) and rescan the plugin for new and merging strings. Use poEdit to do this!

WooCommerce Product Filter - WPML Guide


Important notice! - WooCommerce Product Filter 6.4.0, 6.3.0 and WPML!

Recent Product Filter releases were not so friendly with the latest WPML plugins. PF 6.4.0, 6.3.0 changes all of that! Now you can save option for each language individually. Use the WP Admin Bar WPML language switcher change languages. Save as default or as preset filter and PF will do the rest. WooCommerce Multilingual Multi Currency is back in support! Now even better, prices are adjusted in URLs too!!

Make sure you have the following software installed before continue: WordPress, WooCommerce, WPML, WooCommerce Multilingual and the Product Filter for WooCommerce.

First steps are to have a functional site in one language, then start with the translations. Install WPML and WooCommerce Multilingual. For step by step instructions on translating your shop with these two plugins please visit this link https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/woocommerce-multilingual/.

WPML and the WooCommerce Product filter support one another and the full plugin translation is quite easy to achieve. If you have followed all previous steps and made your site multilingual then just a few special translations for the Product Filter for WooCommerce need to be added. Just follow these guidelines to achieve the full translation.

  • Product Filter for WooCommere 6.3.0 supports WPML Admin Bar Language Switcher. Whenever you want to translate something or change the filters for a language other than default, you will firstly need to switch a language using WPML Admin Bar Language Switcher. Then edit options you want or just translate some strings and click Save as Default. PF will automatically save options for the selected language. Now, when you browse your Shop viewed in another language PF will show corresponding options. This works with presets too. Make a preset for the default language. Change the default language using the WPML Admin Bar Language Switcher, select your preset and click Load Preset. Now, when you finish editing preset options, click Save as Preset. PF will automatically generate a preset variation for that language that will be displayed when browsing filters with this preset assigned. This preset will not be visible in the Presets select box. If you want to edit the preset for a certain language, just make sure you have selected it from the WPML Admin Bar Language Switcher. PF will do the rest.
  • When dealing with customizations (Paint Bucket Tool) make sure you use separate customization keys for each language. When removing a key, to make a new customization for a certain language, firstly click OK to remove, but then click Cancel, not to remove the key from database, as it is used with the default language preset. When you do this, click the Paint Bucket tool and setup the cusotmization for particular language.
  • WooCommerce Multilingual Multi Currency is supported. At the moment, all settings related to prices are set in the default currency. So, you will setup price filter or the range price filter options as you are setting them by the default currency. On the frontend when customer uses the language switcher, or if you have certain currencies set as default for some languages and when language switcher is used, prices will be converted as expected.

Follow these guides and enjoy WPML - WordPress Multilingual plugin. Thanks for using the WPML and the Product Filter for WooCommerce!

Q: Add content before or after Product Filter (actions and hooks)?

Sometimes you will want to add some content before the Product Filter. To do this use the code that follows and add it to your Child Theme functions.php file:

<?php
	filter_add_content_before_39gr92ufbvkjsadbf98( $options, $active_filters ) {
		echo '<span class="my-class">This text will be added before the Product Filter!</span>';
	}
	add_action( 'prdctfltr_filter_before', 'filter_add_content_before_39gr92ufbvkjsadbf98' );
?>

Sometimes you will want to add some content after the Product Filter. To do this use the code that follows and add it to your Child Theme functions.php file:

<?php
	filter_add_content_before_19asc12355w98( $options, $active_filters ) {
		echo '<span class="my-class">This text will be added after the Product Filter!</span>';
	}
	add_action( 'prdctfltr_filter_after', 'filter_add_content_before_19asc12355w98' );
?>

Sometimes you will want to add some content before the Product Filter but only if the user has selected my-custom-category. To do this use the code that follows and add it to your Child Theme functions.php file:

<?php
	filter_add_content_before_125gsddsfjs( $options, $active_filters ) {
		if ( $active_filters['product_cat'] && is_array( $active_filters['product_cat'] ) && in_array( 'my-custom-category', $active_filters['product_cat'] ) ) {
			echo '<span class="my-class">This text will be added before the Product Filter only when filtering category with a slug name my-custom-category!</span>';
		}
	}
	add_action( 'prdctfltr_filter_before', 'filter_add_content_before_125gsddsfjs' );
?>

Q: Change None text to any?

Sometimes you will want to change the None text to some other text like All or similar. To do this use the code that follows and add it to your Child Theme functions.php file:

<?php
	change_none_text_sogja9h48hg() {
		return 'My text';
	}
	add_action( 'prdctfltr_none_text', 'change_none_text_sogja9h48hg' );
?>

Q: Improve filters with custom CSS styles/sprites?

  1. I am using the Checkbox Style for the checkoxes and I just want to change the color of the checked sign icon. How can I do this?

    Use the following CSS code in your custom CSS theme option and enter a color code e.g. #0f0

  2. #prdctfltr_woocommerce.prdctfltr_checkbox .prdctfltr_filter label.prdctfltr_active > span:after {color:#0f0;}
  3. I do not like the filer range design. Can I change colors or design?

    In your /wp-content/plugins/prdctfltr/lib/images/ there are 3 sprite files (PNG images) for the skins. Edit these skin files and create your own filters! The HTML filter style is controlled via CSS so changing this will require changing the CSS code in the /wp-content/plugins/prdctfltr/lib/ion.rangeSlider.css CSS file.

  4. Hey, can I change the AJAX loader icon color?

    Of course, but you will need to edit the SVG icon file that is used for this. Just navigate to your /wp-content/plugins/prdctfltr/lib/images/svg-loaders/ edit your loading icon and change the #777 default color to any color you like!

<key name="wc_settings_prdctfltr_pa_color_title" />

Q: Some taxonomy archives return blank pages, what is the issue here?

If you have recently installed the plugin and you are having issues with the product archive links, the simple and quick fix would be to just navigate to your WP Dashoboard > Settings > Permalinks and resave your permalink settings. This will fix the archives as it will flush the rewrite rules.

Q: How to create one filter for handheld devices and other for desktops?

NEW GUIDE - Handheld/Mobile filtering preset switch

6.0.3+ versions have added a new feature, Mobile Preset. With this option you can easily set different presets for handheld/mobile devices. Check the options here. They are pretty simple, so just create a new preset that you want to use on handheld/mobile devices and set it using the Select Mobile Preset option to your filtering preset. Once the screen resolution hits set value from the Set Mobile Resolution option, which is in pixels, the filtering preset will switch to mobile. The new mobile filter will be shown at the same place as the original filter. If you want to combine actions and widgets please use the OLD GUIDE.

OLD GUIDE - Used if you need to combine widget and custom action filters!

To create separate filters for handheld and desktops you will need to insert the filter twice on your page. By now you are already having one filter installed in your Shop/Product Archives. We will use this one for the default desktop filter. This filter can either be added as widget or as the on top filter. The guide is a different for two types of installation. Follow your example.

  • Widget Version

    If the default widget filter is already in your sidebar and you just want it replaced by another widget filter preset when browsed with handheld devices, follow the next steps to achieve it.

    1. Create a preset that will be used on handheld devices and name it e.g. my-handheld-configuration
    2. Add one more + Product Filter widget right after your default widget filter and assign the my-handheld-configuration preset to it. Now you will have two + Product Filter widgets in your sidebar, one default and the other with my-handheld-configuration preset assigned and we will just need to adjust when to display them. You can also disable overrides for the mobile filter if you are using the on Shop/Product Archives
    3. Check the IDs that are added to the widgets. Usually these will be prdctfltr-1 and for the second widget prdctfltr-2. Use your browser inspect tool to get these IDs
    4. Add this custom CSS code to your website. You can do this either in theme options, style.css or in your child theme. The custom CSS code follows
      #prdctfltr-1 {
      	display:block;
      }
      #prdctfltr-2 {
      	display:none;
      }
      @media (max-width: 768px) {
      	#prdctfltr-1 {
      		display:none;
      	}
      	#prdctfltr-2 {
      		display:block;
      	}
      }
    5. If everything is done properly you should have the my-handheld-configuration preset filter in screen resolutions lower than 786 pixels. This is the iPad portraid standard and widely used, but you can also adjust the setting if you need to
  • Custom Action or the Template Override Method

    If the default filter is already on top of your products and you just want different filter preset on handheld devices, follow the next steps to achieve it.

    1. Create a preset that will be used on handheld devices and name it e.g. my-handheld-configuration
    2. Further actions need installing another filter in your Shop/Product Archives. This can be done quite easily if you are using a Child Theme. In your Child Theme functions.php at the end add the following code. This will insert the filter to the defined action, we will have two filters on page and we will just need to adjust when to display them
      <?php
      	function product_filter_add_1241312fsltgdkhg() {
      		echo do_shortcode( '[prdctfltr_sc_get_filter preset="my-handheld-configuration" id="prdctfltr-mobile"]' );
      	}
      	add_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description', 'product_filter_add_1241312fsltgdkhg', 51 );
      ?>
    3. Add this custom CSS code to your website. You can do this either in theme options, style.css or in your child theme. The custom CSS code follows
      .archive .prdctfltr_wc {
      	display:block;
      }
      .archive #prdctfltr-mobile .prdctfltr_wc {
      	display:none;
      }
      @media (max-width: 768px) {
      	.archive .prdctfltr_wc {
      		display:none;
      	}
      	.archive #prdctfltr-mobile .prdctfltr_wc {
      		display:block;
      	}
      }
    4. If everything is done properly you should have the my-handheld-configuration preset filter in screen resolutions lower than 786 pixels. This is the iPad portraid standard and widely used, but you can also adjust the setting if you need to

You can even combine the two methods, meaning you can use the widget version for desktops and add the custom action filter using your child theme function.php for the handheld devices. The media CSS queries will need to be adjusted, but it will all work and you can get a lot with it.

Q: I have Brands (Custom Taxonomy) and I need Filter Overrides for it. How do I do this?

Custom taxonomies, attributes like brands and such can also have overrides! Navigate to your WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Installation and Advanced Options and setup the Supported Filter Overrides option. Use CTRL+Click to select overrides that you will use in your Shop. Once setup and saved newly created filter overrides will be available in the Filter Overrides and Restrictions section.

Q: How do I preselect filters on page?

Sometimes you will want to make a link to a certain page, but with the filters already selected in the Product Filter. This is easily achieved with the query parameters you can add to your page URL. Examples follow.

Product categories can be preselected with the product_cat parameter that goes in the URL. If you use , or + these will relate to OR and AND filtering.

http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_cat=my-slug
http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_cat=my-slug,my-slug-2
http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_cat=my-slug+my-slug-2

Product tags can be preselected with the product_tag parameter that goes in the URL. If you use , or + these will relate to OR and AND filtering.

http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_tag=my-slug
http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_tag=my-slug,my-slug-2
http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_tag=my-slug+my-slug-2

Product attributes can be preselected with the pa_{attribute-name} parameter that goes in the URL. Change the {attribute-name} to your attribtue slug. If you use , or + these will relate to OR and AND filtering.

http://my-url.com/my-page/?pa_my-attribute-slug=my-slug
http://my-url.com/my-page/?pa_my-attribute-slug=my-slug,my-slug-2
http://my-url.com/my-page/?pa_my-attribute-slug=my-slug+my-slug-2

Min price and max price can be preselected using the min_price and max_price.

http://my-url.com/my-page/?min_price=100
http://my-url.com/my-page/?max_price=200
http://my-url.com/my-page/?min_price=100&max_price=200

On sale filter can be preselected using the sale_products.

http://my-url.com/my-page/?sale_products=on

In stock filter can be preselected using the instock_products.

http://my-url.com/my-page/?instock_products=in
http://my-url.com/my-page/?instock_products=out
http://my-url.com/my-page/?instock_products=both

Range filters can be preselected by adding these parameters.

Prices:
http://my-url.com/my-page/?rng_min_price=100
http://my-url.com/my-page/?rng_max_price=200
http://my-url.com/my-page/?rng_min_price=100&rng_max_price=200

Taxonomies:
http://my-url.com/my-page/?rng_min_product_cat=my-slug-1&rng_max_product_cat=my-slug-2
http://my-url.com/my-page/?rng_min_pa_my-attribute-slug=my-slug-1&rng_pa_my-attribute-slug=my-slug-2

And of course you can combine all of these. So this will work too!

http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_cat=my-slug,my-slug-2&max_price=100&sale_products=on
http://my-url.com/my-page/?product_cat=my-slug,my-slug-2&product_tag=my-tag
http://my-url.com/my-page/?pa_my-attribute-slug=my-slug&instock_products=in&sale_products=on

Q: Can I make some custom post query, like Essential Grid or similar to work with the filter?

Yes, of course, but you will need to know that in this mode AJAX is not supported. So, only non-AJAX will work with this, but it will basically work with anything, which is still a good thing :) How to achieve this? You will only need to add the query parameter prdctfltr=active to your current query. If you use the Essential Grid, then this is just what you need to paste in the extra query parameters field and this way filter will hook up to the products displayed with it. One more time, no AJAX! You can also insert this parameter in any WP Query like so.

$my_query = new WP_Query( $your_args + array( 'prdctfltr' => 'active' ) );

Q: How can I add content after a certain filter (widget too)?

For this you will need to use a child theme, because we will need to hook up to an action. The example shows how to paste our HTML embed after every preset second filter.

<?php
	function product_filter_add_content_23rklasd233( $count ) {
		if ( $count == 2 ) {
		?>
			<div class="my-ad">Here is the AD :)</div>
		<?php
		}
	}
	add_action( 'prdctfltr_after_filter', 'product_filter_add_content_23rklasd233', 10, 1 );
?>

Q: Product Filter common admin side issues?

If you are having issues with saving errors, 500 error pages or similar, you should navigate to your WooCommerce > System Status to check your settings for the php_memory_limit, here is a link https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/increasing-the-wordpress-memory-limit/ and max_input_vars. If these are low and you do have a lot of options saving might fail, and much more too!

Q: I want to filter out some filter settings on the frontend. How?

To filter out preset options on the frontend you can use the following function. This option can be useful for translations, but it can be used for so much more.

<?php
	function product_filter_add_settings_filter_asf21233( $settings ) {
		if ( 1 == 1 /* check for something, e.g. set language */ ) {
			$settings['wc_settings_prdctfltr_cat_title'] = 'My New Categories Title!';
			$settings['wc_settings_prdctfltr_tag_title'] = 'For Tags Too!!';
		}
		return $settings;
	}
	add_filter( 'prdctfltr_get_settings', 'product_filter_add_settings_filter_asf21233', 10, 1 );
?>

Q: Some multiple range filters with long URLs aren't run well, what is the issue here?

If you use plugins like WP Security or similar that detect really long query URLs and prevent them from happening your filtering might be off and some filters might be cut off when multiple filters are used. To prevent this, just disable this option in your security plugin.

Q: My theme is using Isotope product grids, and when I activate this plugin my products are messed up?

This is just an issue of loading same libraries twice, which eventually break the site appearance. For this navigate to the WooCommerce > Settings > Product Filter > Installation and Advanced Options. The option you should set is the Disable JavaScript Libraries. This option disables loading of certain Javascript libraries that have already been initiated. Set the option as in the following screenshot.

Q: Why my option for No Product Found! override is not working?

The issue here is really your theme. It is not using the default no-products-found.php template from WooCommerce. Usually these themes hardcode the No Products Found templates and we really cannot do anything about it. Ask your theme authors for help. Thanks!

Q: How to create Meta Filters? Rating Filter, Total Sales, Dimensions, Weight, Custom Fields and More!

Meta Filters are awesome! They allow filtering by any product meta key from the wp_postmeta database table. This means that you can filter by default WooCommerce keys such as total_sales, _featured, _downloadable, _width, _length, _height, _weight, _sku, _wc_review_count, _wc_average_rating. Custom meta keys created by third party plugins or users can also be used for filtering. To learn how to make Meta Filter check the samples! To start click the Add meta filter + icon. Filter settings will appear, set them as shown in samples. Cogs Wheel icon is used to set the filtering terms (meta values). Once you set the filtering options, click the Cogs Wheel icon and set filtering terms (meta values). Meta Filters support styling, use the Paint Bucket tool, and multiple selection.

Average Rating Filter

General Meta Filter settings for the Average Rating Filter

Using Cogs Wheel icon set these filtering terms (meta values)

Total Sales Filter

General Meta Filter settings for the Total Sales Filter

Using Cogs Wheel icon set these filtering terms (meta values)

Weight Filter

Using Cogs Wheel icon set these filtering terms (meta values)

Custom Meta Key Filter

General Meta Filter settings for any custom meta key filter. This will be the most common setup for your custom meta keys. Set your Key and filtering terms using Cogs Wheel icon as your custom values

Using Cogs Wheel icon set these filtering terms (meta values)

Q: Meta Filters generate mta_ prefix in Meta Filter URLs, can I change those?

Yes, of course. Use the following filter in your child theme functions.php.

<?php
	function product_filter_change_meta_prefix_23oiht( $prefix ) {
		return 'my_cool_prefix_';
	}
	add_filter( 'prdctfltr_meta_key_prefix', 'product_filter_change_meta_prefix_23oiht', 10, 1 );
?>

Q: Instock filters are updated in the 6.0.3+? How to setup products for best possible filtering? DEPRECATED, UPDATE TO WC 3.0.0

We have changed the instock filters to suit the demand! They should be faster than ever and more precise. To make sure your products are filtered properly here is an explanation of how these filters work and what they detect. Filter detects both manageable and non manageable stock and is aware of the WooCommerce instock threshold option and the backordering too. Here are the basic principles:

Single Products

Single Products (Not Managed Stock) - If stock is not managed and if the Stock Status option is set to In Stock product will be detected as in stock.

Single Products (Managed Stock) - If stock is managed and if the Stock Quantity option is set to more than WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Inventory > Out of Stock Threshold product will be detected as in stock. In this case, when you have Stock Quantity above the threshold the Stock Status option will be automatically set to In Stock. If Stock Quantity goes bellow, Stock Status will automatically be set to Out of Stock and the product will not be detected as in stock.

Single Products Backorders (Managed Stock) - Backorders will also be detected as in stock, if set as in the example bellow. When stock is managed and the Stock Quantity is bellow Out of Stock Threshold, using the Allow Backorders? option will allow these products to be detected as in stock, as they can still be purchased via backorders.

Variable Products

Variable products follow same principles. It does not matter how you setup your attributes, using ANY or specific attributes for your variable products or how many you have them, they will be detected accordingly. Just follow these rules:

Variable Products (Not Managed Stock) - If stock is not managed and if the Stock Status option is set to In Stock product will be detected as in stock.

Variable Products (Managed Stock) - If stock is managed and if the Stock Quantity option is set to more than WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Inventory > Out of Stock Threshold product will be detected as in stock. In this case, when you have Stock Quantity above the threshold the Stock Status option will be automatically set to In Stock. If Stock Quantity goes bellow, Stock Status will automatically be set to Out of Stock and the product will not be detected as in stock.

Variable Products Backorders (Managed Stock) - Backorders will also be detected as in stock, if set as in the example bellow. When stock is managed and the Stock Quantity is bellow Out of Stock Threshold, using the Allow Backorders? option will allow these products to be detected as in stock, as they can still be purchased via backorders.

If you follow these principles and setup your products like in the shown samples, they will be detecteded as in stock accordingly. Products set differently will be marked as out of stock!

Optimizing Instock Filters

Optimization is available and important. It depends on your products setup. If you are not using variable products you can switch off in stock queries for those and speed things up. If you are not managing stock and all your products have manageable stock, you can also switch off in stock queries for non manageable stock options. This will too result in a performance boost. The worst scenario is where you have used all the options for your products, meaning you have manageable stock and not, variable and simple products and with backorders too. In this case all instock queries will need to be run for all possibilities and if you have a large products database it just might be slow. To do all this properly, on a large scale site, do follow these principles:

  • Use either Manageable Stock or Non-Manageable Stock for all your products. If you do, you can keep only queries for those and reduce filtering times. Do not have just a few Non-Manageable Stock products in your Shop just to make them always available. Use Manageable Stock for those too and use a large value. This also goes vice-versa.
  • If you don't combine product types, meaning you only use Simple Products or the Variable Products in you Shop, you can further disable the filters for products you don't use and speed things up.

Filters for In Stock Optimization

Use these filters in your functions.php file to disable in stock queries for products you don't use in the Shop.

  • Disable Manageable Stock Queries - If all your products use Non-Manageable Stock add this filter to prevent searches for Manageable Stock products.

    <?php
    	function product_filter_instock_remove_manageable_fi203ifaaadsf2() {
    		return false;
    	}
    	add_filter( 'prdctfltr_instock_manageable', 'product_filter_instock_remove_manageable_fi203ifaaadsf2' );
    	?>
  • Disable Non-Manageable Stock Queries - If all your products use Non-Manageable Stock add this filter to prevent searches for Manageable Stock products.

    <?php
    	function product_filter_instock_remove_nonmanageable_aafg34gws12() {
    		return false;
    	}
    	add_filter( 'prdctfltr_instock_nonmanageable', 'product_filter_instock_remove_nonmanageable_aafg34gws12' );
    	?>
  • Disable Variable Products Stock Queries - If all your products are Simple Products add this filter to prevent searches for in stock Variable Products.

    <?php
    	function product_filter_instock_remove_variable_nhr444225y() {
    		return false;
    	}
    	add_filter( 'prdctfltr_instock_variable', 'product_filter_instock_remove_variable_nhr444225y' );
    	?>
  • Disable Simple Products Stock Queries - If all your products are Variable Products add this filter to prevent searches for in stock Simple Products.

    <?php
    	function product_filter_instock_remove_single_afa2345y() {
    		return false;
    	}
    	add_filter( 'prdctfltr_instock_single', 'product_filter_instock_remove_single_afa2345y' );
    	?>

Q: Meta Filters with BETWEEN compare need two values right? Does this also support multiselect?

Meta Filters with BETWEEN compare method need two values. To insert comparable between value use the - separator. Here are some samples. Multi select is also supported in all filters. So, you can use it even in BETWEEN mode.

  • 0-100 and type NUMERICAL will search between 0 and 100
  • 500-1000 and type NUMERICAL will search between 5 and 1000

If you use values that have the - parameter, but this in only important with the BETWEEN method, you can add a filter to this separator and change it to whatever you like to eliminate conflicts. Use the following code in your child theme functions.php.

<?php
	function product_filter_change_between_separator_21vasa2wr2( $separator ) {
		return '-SEP-';
	}
	add_filter( 'prdctfltr_meta_key_between_separator', 'product_filter_change_between_separator_21vasa2wr2', 10, 1 );
?>

Q: What is AJAX Failsafe and how to use it in your advantage?

This option is introduced in the 5.9.0 filter. It is used to control when to trigger the AJAX functions. Usually if something is messed up the wrppers needed for the AJAX functions are not present on page. By default the Product Filter will check for the products wrapper and a product to make an AJAX call, but this can be extended and pagination wrapper. This setting can be set in the Installation and Advanced Options. Usually the default settings will work as expected, but on some themes with complex paginations (more than one per page) it is advisable to check for pagination in the AJAX Failsafe setting.

Q: How do I set that upon filter selection change all other filters are reset?

6.0.7 update added the option Selection Change Reset for taxonomy filters. By selecting this option for any taxonomy filter, once the selection is made in it, all other filters will be reset.

Q: Does the Product Filter support currency switcher plugins?

We had some issues, but from the 5.9.0 version WPML WooCommerce Multilingual Currency Switcher and the Woof Currency Switcher are fully tested and supported in all Product Filter functions.

Q: 6.0.7 performance boost and plugins database options update? What was done there?

This was really important. Since forever we have used WooCommerce system for saving options and this got us no where with all the options we have. The plugin got really slow. This update fixes that as it serializes all these options under a few database keys which are not even on autoload anymore. So, after this fix, your WP will have to load at least 300+ options less from your database, on heavy installations up to 1000. This was not an easy task as we needed to keep all the existing get_option( key ) for compatibility with WPML or similar software. Hopefully this was done properly and only time will show. If you are missing translations from the PF options and our intercept get_option() filters (on pre_get_options_%% filter) are not really doing their thing, please check the new database keys prdctfltr_wc_default which is your default preset serialized key, and the prdctfltr_wc_templat_^^Your template name^^, as these keys are now responsible for PF preset options. Thanks!
