1) Is there any documentation about the ‘Conditions’ for Filters and Filter Groups?
I tried by trial and error, a LOT of times and different combinations, but can’t figure out the erratic behavior of this functionality, it never works as I expect.
What I would like to do is only show certain filters if a specific product category has been selected. So at the shop homepage, when all products are selected, this Product Filter should NOT show, but once a customer selects a specific category, the corresponding Filter should show.
I guess this should be done by setting a ‘Condition’ in the Filter.
I tried either ‘Product Category’ equal, and then selecting one (or more) product categories, and with or without ‘include subcategories’. This doesn’t work.
Also tried ‘Product Attribute’ equal ‘product Categories’, and then selecting a Product Category.
Also doesn’t work.
The I tried adding conditions to an existing Filter Group with several Filters, amongst which the filter I wanted to use. Same examples as above, also doesn’t work. hen I tried creating a special Filter Group with only one Filter in it. Same examples as above, also doesn’t work.
I also tried numerous othe rvariations, such as including an AND (and OR) condition in combination with a page, etc. I tried almost anything that is possible, I think.
How do I accomplish what I want?
2) If I select ” in a Filter Group it shows up irrespective of making a Widget. So if the Filter Group exists, but isn’t called in any widget, it still appears on top.
Note: It looks like the documentation has not been updated after the plugin overhaul a while back (when old widgets became ‘legacy’ and then disappeared).
By the way:
I have the premium plugin, but my first support answers were so vague (generic answers to very specific questions) and written in broken English that I prefer to try it here where more pointed answers seem to be given.
Sorry if it sounds offensive, not intended, but I just need to get results fast.
