- Activate filtering on any registered public custom post type.
- Exclude taxonomies you just don’t want the visitors to filter on.
- Beautifies the resulting URLs. You won’t see any /posttype/?taxonomy1=term. Instead you’ll see /posttype/taxonomy/term.
- The pretty URLs are much more SEO friendly so you’ll give a boost to those filtered pages. Just remember to use canonicals where it’s appropriate.
- Polylang compatible (beta).
- Multisite compatible. No network settings at the moment.
- Comes with a complete functional filter module for you to put in your theme.
- Three alternatives for putting the filter modules in your theme:
- Widgets (Also lets you “hard set” a post type for use anywhere)
- Functions (for granular control)
- Automagic setting which will magically place the modules in your archive from thin air. Wizards at work…
- Choose from different styles for the component, or disable styling and do it yourself in style.css! Just want to tweak a style? Add your custom CSS directly on the settings page.
- Many more settings for fine-tuning the filter modules behaviour:
- A ”Clear all” link for the filter component.
- Choose between placeholders or “show all” in the dropdowns.
- Hide empty terms in the dropdowns.
- Show a post count next to the term name
- More to come!
- Ability to show your visitors information about their current active filtering and control the look of this.
- Allows for custom GET parameters to be included. Extend the filter your way with maybe a custom search-parameter or whatever you like.
- Many filters and actions for modifying the plugins behaviour. For you control freaks out there…
