Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Product Filter by WooBeWoo » Checkboxes & Heirarchy

  • patchwebdesign



    I have created a filter but it is showing radio instead of checkboxes as suggested in the options. I want to allow selection of multiple categories. Is this possible?

    Also, is it possible to collapse parent categories?

    If these 2 things are possible, this is by far the best and easiest to use filter I have come across

    Hi, @patchwebdesign !
    1. I checked how does work checkboxes, (this type is available only for attribute filters) everything ok on our website.

    Can you show some screenshot and provide a link to the website to look at the issue?

    2. For this moment you can use only 1 filter for categories. You can contact us through internal support and we will discuss the conditions of implementation.

    3. “Is it possible to collapse parent categories?” For now – no(. You just can use “Show hierarchical” to visually separated categories as a parent and subsidiary (for checkbox list). Your idea is nice and I consider if we and add this option.

    By the way, you are able to use multiple attributes filters, if it can be helpful for you

    Can you give me an example of collapsible parent categories, please? To make sure I understood you right



    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for the response. You can see collapsible filters in the sidebar at

    I wanted to use checkboxes for the categories filter, so that’s probably the issue. I have sent a note on your contact form regarding the categories filter.

    Thank you for providing an example.
    Regarding your request, we will add “Collapsible filters” and an option to display categories as checkboxes in the next update for WooCommerce Product Filter.
    Thank you for the nice suggestions!
