Support » Plugin: WP-Filters » [Plugin: WP-Filters] List Display Issue Categories and Subcategories

  • Impressive plugin!

    I would love to use it but there is a little problem about it.

    The thing that bothers me is the big list of unordered categories and subcategories being displayed all the time in one line, regardless of selected category.

    I have more than 30 categories including subcategories, so having this unordered list of “all of them” at all the time is a bit annoying.

    The way I see it as best solution would be to display only “subcategories” of CURRENT selected category or all available categories/subcategories of current loop.
    example:
    If the selected category or the loop is “Category 1”, then to display as filter options all and only subcategory 1,2,3 of Cat 1 or current loop. If the loop is “custom taxonomy” or even master loop then to display only all available categories without subcategories.

    Here is a peace of code I found to display only all available subcategories of selected category:

    <?php if (is_category()) {
    	  $this_category = get_category($cat);
    	  if (get_category_children($this_category->cat_ID) != "") {
    	    echo "<h1>SUBCATEGORIES</h1>";
    	    echo "<ul>";
    	    wp_list_categories('orderby=id&show_count=0&title_li=
    	&use_desc_for_title=1&child_of='.$this_category->cat_ID);
    	    echo "</ul>";
    	  }
    	} ?>

    Hope it can be modified and implemented, but if not, at least to have them ordered and displayed in proper way would be a great solution and it would make so many users happier. For example:

    Category 1
    – Subcategory 1
    – Subcategory 2

    Category 2
    – subcategory 1
    – subcategory 2
    etc…

    Hope u find this helpful and useful.

    Cheers!

  • update:

    I have this idea how to bypass this problem with multi-widgets, maybe even the easiest solution.

    Adding widgets where user can select which categories to filter.

    This way user could add more than one widget with different sets of categories selected and then to control where to display which widget with dynamic widgets..

    Anyway having widget with option to select categories would be very useful.
