Woo Custom Filter widget is a free WooCommerce plugin. This plugin provides an advanced ajax product filter, for creating customizable filters on the WooCommerce website. With the help of this plugin, you can create filters anywhere on Shop and Category Page. This plugin can also create unique filters for different category pages. It means you can create two different kinds of filters on two different category pages. It also supports the shortcodes for creating filters on any part of any webpage with the shortcode. It also allows creating an unlimited number of product filters anywhere on any webpage.
This plugin is one of the best filter plugins (Yes! Really!) when it comes to advanced and customizable “horizontal” style filters. As I just said it is best for advanced horizontal filters, which means you can create custom filters with various widgets like Sliders, Buttons, Checkboxes, Dropdowns, Icon, Radio Buttons, Switch Buttons, or multi-selects. Lastly, All these widgets support AJAX search. As well as, you can choose to have the filter layout either Vertical or Horizontal Styled.
Woo Custom Filter Widget (as I said above) offers ajax search features that ensure a complete search experience. Lastly, We have optimized the back-end of the plugin and it’s very efficient. So, it will work even for large inventory without compromising the speed of websites.
Let’s look at an example. The image below shows the example of creating several filters for any product inventories (like as we took an example of Diamond/Jewelry product inventory) by using our plugin. Here, we use custom input types for different diamond parameters based on their Shape, Fluorescence, Table, Depth, .etc. Similarly, in the filter range, a slider is used for Clarity, Colour, Carat, and Price.
Next, the Advanced filter section hideouts some advanced filters, that only advanced users would need.
(Since we are talking about the Diamond/Jewelry website, If you are running a website that is related to real/natural diamonds or lab-grown diamond or CVD diamond etc., or even both then this plugin can provide lots of best features for your website. And of course, the above demo snaps can work exactly in a similar way even if your inventory is only of lab grown diamonds or CVD diamonds)
Furthermore to Woo Custom Filter Widget Plugin. We have Dependent Hierarchical Filter Extension and Custom Numeric Filter Extension to make your website more professional and premium. Both extensions come with advanced filters that you can integrate on your website (Both extensions are premium and paid. Mentioned rest are free).
