    Hi,
    We want to create many filters on our website, similar to this one – here

    Is it best to create tags or categories? We also we need a filter plugin that can deal with these filters. We have tried ‘annasta Woocommerce Product Filters’ but the issue is that although you can choose categories and exclude the ones you do not want to show, you cannot build another category filter, name it and then exclude the cats you do not want to show.
    For example, if you look at the demo, you have TYPE,SCREEN SIZE, SCREEN RESOLUTION, PROCESSOR, etc. So, if they were all in a categories or even tags, they would have to be one big list rather than in separate headers.
    Any ideas anyone?
    Many thanks

  • Try Attributes – so for example, an attribute called Screen Size would list the sizes under it’s own heading

    Couple of problems with that though.

    1, They cannot be used in a menu, and some will need to be.
    2, annasta Woocommerce Product Filters dosent allow attributes

    This site built with Shopify , shows more of what we ae trying to do – here

    In the Stoves menu you can see that there are –
    By Fuel Type
    Wood Burning Stoves
    Multi Fuel Stoves
    Gas Stoves
    Electric Stoves
    Boiler Stoves
    By Energy Output
    5Kw Stoves
    2-5Kw Stoves
    5-8Kw Stoves
    8Kw+ Stoves

    etc, now on the left filter, they also appear in there, amongst many other types of filters.
    Thanks

    You can add them to the menu: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/using-custom-attributes-in-menus/

    I was thinking of the filter by attributes block.

    that might work, thanks
    but are there any filter plugins that will work with that idea?

    Hi @topknotch,

    Have you taken a look at the WooCommerce Product Search extension? Despite the name, it has really good filtering by tags, attributes, categories, and so on.

    https://woocommerce.com/products/woocommerce-product-search/

    If you want to try it out, it does have a 30 day refund window. So you can see if it fits your needs. If it doesn’t, just let us know and we’ll get you your money back.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
