Demo Description

How It Works:

check installation

In recent updates:

  • Fixed out-of-stock filter
  • Jump to first page when filter changed
  • Option to add text before and after price input fields
  • Now only used values must be shown, not all
  • Minor fixes


  • In editor [br_filters attribute=price type=slider title="Price Filter"]
  • In PHP do_shortcode('[br_filters attribute=price type=slider title="Price Filter"]');

Shortcode Options:

  • attribute(required) – product attribute, eg price or length. Don’t forget that woocommerce adding pa_ suffix for created attributes.
    So if you create new attribute jump its name is pa_jump
  • type(required) – checkbox, radio, slider or select
  • operator – OR or AND
  • title – whatever you want to see as title. Can be empty
  • product_cat – parent category id
  • cat_propagation – should we propagate this filter to child categories? set 1 to turn this on
  • height – max filter box height. When height is met scroll will be added
  • scroll_theme – pretty clear name, scroll theme. Will be used if height is set and real height of box is more

Advanced Settings (Widget area):

  • Product Category – if you want to pin your filter to category of the product this is good place to do it.
    Eg. You selling Phones and Cases for them. If user choose Category “Phones” filter “Have Wi-Fi” will appear
    but if user will choose “Cases” it will not be there as Admin set that “Have Wi-Fi” filter will be visible only on
    “Phones” category.
  • Filter Box Height – if your filter have too much options it is nice to limit height of the filter to not prolong
    the page too much. Scroll will appear.
  • Scroll theme – if “Filter Box Height” is set and box length is more than “Filter Box Height” scroll appear and
    how it looks depends on the theme you choose.

Advanced Settings (Plugin Settings):

  • Plugin settings can be found in admin area, WooCommerce -> Product Filters
  • “No Products” message – Text that will be shown if no products found
  • “No Products” class – Add class and use it to style “No Products” box
  • Products selector – Selector for tag that is holding products
  • Sorting control – Take control over WooCommerce’s sorting selectbox
  • SEO friendly urls – url will be changed when filter is selected/changed
  • Turn all filters off – If you want to hide filters without losing current configuration just turn them off


Step 1:

  • First you need to add attributes to the products ( WooCommerce plugin should be installed and activated already )
  • Go to Admin area -> Products -> Attributes and add attributes your products will have, add them all
  • Click attribute’s name where type is select and add values to it. Predefine product options
  • Go to your products and add attributes to each of them

Step 2:

  • Install and activate plugin
  • First of all go to Admin area -> WooCommerce -> Product Filter and check what global options you can manage
  • After that go to Admin area -> Appearance -> Widgets
  • In Available Widgets ( left side of the screen ) find AJAX Product Filters
  • Drag it to Sidebar you choose
  • Enter title, choose attribute that will be used for filtering products, choose filter type,
    choose operator( whether product should have all selected values (AND) or one of them (OR) ),
  • Click save and go to your shop to check how it work.
  • That’s it =)


Advance settings not working for me

Hi Guys

Cool plugin. For some reason when I select the categories that I want the user to filter by, it does not show on the front-end.

Any idea what I could be missing?
