I purchased this item, but I’m not sure how to upload the plugin to my wordpress site. I did it the usual way by uploading the .zip file, but it failed.

How do I install this on WordPress


Thanks for reaching out, I’ll be happy to assist you. It sounds like your trying to upload the entire codecanyon zip file instead of the actual plugin file included within that zip. To resolve, please open the zip and only upload the wordpress plugin.

For more information, please review the 2 minute installation video that will show you exactly what to do in 2 minutes. This can also be found in the documentation file located in the zip.


Hopefully, you will be able to help me with changing your code to something that can help me. Please advise where I need to begin.

To recap: I would like to sort based on width and height and also I would like the items to fade in.

Thanks for the help,



Thanks for reaching out. Please send me a message using the form on my profile page for fast support.


Hello, The simple content sorter looks like it would work for my site. I just need to know if we I can change so my items can be sorted by height and width?


I’ll be happy to assist. The sorting should work just fine for the height and width, you’ll just have to addd it to the settings. Let me know once you have your copy and I’ll be happy to assist.


I have the code and I was looking but not sure where to begin. Also for mine I would like no items to be seen until they input the height and width (I think that is the fadeIn effect if I am correct.


Thanks for the follow up. Can you please send me a message using the form on my profile page so I can walk you through it?



Hi There I have a question Can I filter my property listings based on area by using your plugin?? this is my website. If I can do this please let me know so I can purchase this plugin .


Hello, yes you can. I have other users who are doing exactly this. Let me know if you need help getting started.


can I use this for filtering people like in a dating website?

Yes, however this is done via JavaScript so the content would be filtered dynamically on the front-end.


Hi, thanks for the great and easy to use script.

I´ve got one question.

I want to show all products on one website and filter them with different dropdowns. Is this possible? For example: Show all “blue” + “round” products. Or just all “blue” products or just all “round” products ?


Yes absolutely. The implementation is a mouthful, can you send me an email so I can explain further?

Thanks, xxcriversxx

Before I buy I want to make sure I can use both Sorting and Paging at the same time.


This plugin is only sorting. You will need to purchase Simple Content Sorting Plus to get paging.

Thanks, xxcriversxx

Hi scottlmarx, Thanks for purchasing jQuery Simple Content Sorting Plus Plugin by xxcriversxx

Now how do get both at the same time.

See email.

I’m running into a problem getting the plugin to work. I’m not sure if there’s an issue supporting tables or something? Maybe I’ve just been staring at the computer too long I’m using wordpress here’s a the important bits:

    jQuery(function ($) {        
            'sortingList' : 'table#loclist'
Then the html
<select id="selectbox">
    <option value="location">Any</option>
    <option value="restaurant">Restaurants</option>
    <option value="bar-or-pub">Bar or Pub</option>
    <option value="market">Market</option>
    <option value="retail-shop">Retail Shop</option>
    <option value="tasting-room">Tasting Room</option>

Then the table ID is #loclist, I’ve formatted the filters correctly as such:

<td filtera="location,restaurant">Amuse</td>

etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Ok update on the issue: I’ve run some tests and basically now I just need some help getting the sortingList to latch on to a series of td tags

Update 2: OK! Duh, I replaced all the ” li” in the js file to ” td” and now it works like a charm!

Awesome! I’m glad you were able to figure it out! Let me know if you need anything else.


Hi, It will support the Russian language? And is it possible to delete rows “Add to cart” “Size” and “data”? It script will be used for determine (identification) hallmarks and stamps…

Yes, this plugin supports all languages including Russian. Also yes, you the extras can easily be removed. They were added for demonstration purposes only.


Thanks for the script. Question: i have used the script to sort the rows , and in this case the properties, by certain filters. Is there an easy way or filter I can use to sort the properties by price or in reality by a number – ascending or descending?



I’d be glad to help you. To answer your question, the plugin is designed to allow you to change content based on matched criteria. Moreover, it isn’t designed to organize data by price. However this is definitely something I can add custom for you.

Send me an email if you wish to discuss further.

Thanks, xxcriversxx

Hi, I’m using a plugin which is retrieving data from social networks and I cannot add ‘filterA’ inside my markup because is generated by a script. So, can I make this work like your search plugin but instead of having to type what I’m looking for, to have categories like in this plugin. Thank you !

Yes it works just the same. Are you having issues?


Help!! im trying to get this plugin working on a weebly site i am creating!

No idea where to being :/


No problem I will be glad to help you with this. Send me and email and I will get you started.


Trying to make the page load with a certain value already selected, and only that subset displayed. Here’s what I used:

<script type=”text/javascript”> $(document).ready(function(){ $(”#selectbox”).simpleContentSorting ({ //options ‘sortingList’ : ‘ul#results’, ‘effect’ : ‘fadeIn’ }); }); $(document).ready(function(){ $(”#selectbox”).attr(“checked”, “checked”); }); </script>

Can’t seem to make it work. Any suggestions?

I have a similar question to mmcmahon – but can’t make the solution you suggested work. (I have very little jQuery experience.) I need the page to load with a certain option value already selected (and only that subset displayed). What do I need to do?


I will be more than happy to help you with this, send me an email and we will discuss further.


Nevermind, I see you already did. Thanks!

Are you going to realize a wordpress version?

It would be amazing, and I would purchase it for sure.


Yes absolutely. Just out of curiosity, what types of features would you look forward to seeing with this?


Is it possible to add this filter by table rows < t r > instead of list < l i >?

Yes, You can actually specify the type of element. I can help you with this if you need it.

You replied to marcel808, but to me its not really clear. I am having the same problem/Want to achieve the same thing;

I got bathroom furniture specified by width and color. When i select 80cm it shows all the 80cm available, then i want to sort out only the white ones in the list. So i select in another drop down list White.

Now it shows all the white furniture, but i only want the white furniture that is 80cm width. Is there an easy solution?


This would require a custom solution. Send me an email if your interested.


Work with table, td and tr as well??


Yes, this works with any type of markup you’d like. Also, I’ll do whatever it takes to help you along the way.


Does this work with WordPress?


Yes this works with wordpress! Let me know if you need help getting started.


without a doubt, one of the worst products on this site! While the sorting function seems to work just fine, here is the problem: this vendor included a mega-sized CSS file, of which nearly 80% is irrelevant to this program! Clearly, he simply copied and pasted this sorting program from a much larger site without giving any regard to the quality of the deliverable product. This translates to an enormous time suck on your end (the buyer) as you need to weed through the CSS file and try to figure out which pieces of the file are relevant and which ones are not.

There are references to things such as News, Login, Search and Registration forms all throughout the CSS file! None of these ‘features’ are a part of this program. Instead, they are unused leftovers from whatever file it was copied and pasted from.

This thing should be pulled off of the market and sent back to Santa’s workshop for repair!

Thanks for wasting hours of our time.


I apologize for the confusion and wasted time, however, that css file was for demonstration purposes only. I, and the Envato Team intended for that to be used as part of your plugin usage. It was just a demo.

However, I see how you must feel so I will clean that out and send you an update.
