Create Store Categories & Filter

Getting Started Viewed: 1027

To filter your stores you can choose between store categories or filters. The difference between a category & a filter is this:

  • Store Categories only display in one select field regardless of the levels
  • Store filters can be used to show multiple checkboxes or select fields

The logic operator for query is AND. Means if for example clothing and free parking is checked only stores, that have both filters will be shown.

Create Store Categories

To create store categories go to your backend > store locator > categories. Here you can create a new category with:

  • Name
  • Description
  • Linked to a WooCommerce Category
  • Custom Icon
Create a Store Category

Example Output of a store category

Create Store Filter

For store filters go to your backend > store locator > filter. Here you can create a new filter with:

  • Name
  • Description
  • Linked to a WooCommerce Category
  • Custom Icon
  • Input Type (checkboxes OR select field)

Only the 2nd level filters will be shown as checkboxes inside the store locator. The 1st level filters will be used as the filter top names.

Means you need to find a name like “facilities”, create the filter and assign your checkboxes like “Free Parking” or Toiltes below this one.

  1. I can’t seem to figure out how to uncheck all the Product Categories on first load.
    https://www.cambiumnetworks.com/where-to-buy/ It defaults to ‘All Products’ checked. In the settings under Searchbox there is a ‘select default filter category’ but that is only showing the dropdown options. I have 2 filters. One dropdown and one with checkboxes.

    Right now the problem really is that when it loads, even though the first ‘All Products’ is checked it’s not actually showing items checked with All Products. If I uncheck it and then check again it filters correctly. So I either need to fix that so it does filter by All Products on first load OR I need to have all of the filters unchecked on first load. Any help or insight appreciated.

    best,
    Kurt
