Support » Plugin: WordPress Meta Data and Taxonomies Filter (MDTF) » Shortcode for filterable grid display of standard categories

  • Hello.

    I’ve used your excellent WOOF plugin for filtering Woocommerce products.

    What I need to do here is filter a standard WP post archive using standard categories. I’m using a custom post archive template (built with Elementor page builder) – here:

    I’m struggling with the settings / shortcode required to achieve this.
    The filter seems to be ‘working’ but nothing is being displayed. I want all posts to appear by default then update as the filters are selected.

    Woof required something like this – obviously a shortcode for the actual filters then a shortcdoe for the display of results:

    [woof is_ajax=1 taxonomies=product_cat:96]
    [woof_products orderby=random_order per_page=24 taxonomies=product_cat:96]

    The layout / function of the filters on this page are exactly what i need (horizontal dropdowns) but I can’t get any results to display.

    I’ve tried various shortcode variations but can’t get the actual post archive to display. I need the filtering to happen on the ‘current-positions’ page and display in the format of the ‘mode-archive’ template.

    [mdf_search_form id=”780″]
    [meta_data_filter_results “mdf_custom template=any/mode-archive post_type=car orderby=date order=desc page=1 per_page=9 pagination=tb panel_id=780”]

    I’m sure it’s my second shortcode that is wrong.

    Hopefully you can guide me as to what I’m doing wrong.

    Thanks very much in advance.
