Hi InifiWebs,

When option Ajaxify Content is switched on, sorting doesn’t work properly, which is also reflected in the browser address bar. E.g. the ‘set_orderby’ string gets remove when changing the sort order:

?set_order=asc&set_orderby=title => ?&set_order=desc

Kind regards, Peter

HI Peter,

Can you please provide your site url where you have implemented the plugin, so that I can take a look and check. If there’s a bug in the plugin, I will fix it in next release.

Thank you,
Infiwebs

Hi, Thanks for your swift response. It’s a local dev install so you can’t get access. I might have a closer look myself and let you know. Otherwise I will get back to you once accessible. Peter

Hello, I have a pre-purchase question.

Is it possible to move all filters to a sidebar rather than having them above the grid? So have them stacked above one another in the sidebar.

Hi,

Unfortunately, this isn’t really possible within the plugin, however, you can position the filters using css absolute position.

Hi there,

Before I purchase this plugin, I would like to know if it supports the option of filtering for more than one category of post. For example, if I have a post categorized as “Computer Literacy” and “For Teachers”, and another post with only “For Teachers” as a category, is it possible to select only posts that have BOTH categories? The current VC post grid won’t do this, and we’ve been really struggling with a solution.

Hi,

Yes, We have an option to set the filter selection to set for checkboxes which you can use to select filters with more than one category.

When you set the filters, just set the filter type to checkboxes and you’re all set.

I hope this will help you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via contact form on our codecanyon profile page.

Thank you,

Hi. A little confused by the Visual Composer plugin, I’ve been using many different filters / grids, but where is the option to set the number of columns to use? e.g. the samples on your demo site use 3 columns. I tried this with default post types and custom. An additional issue with the custom post types is that the initial selection using a drop down list is blank, there is no “all” selection which would be more intuitive. Perhaps I am missing this setting too. Other than that there are some layout / alignment issues but it would be good to know how to get the column display working with a masonry grid over 3 columns and set a default selection (e.g. “all”) in the drop down filter lists on custom posts. Thanks!

Hi,

The columns are auto calculated depends on the number of custom taxonomies you have. Can you please contact us with your site details via contact form on our codecanyon profile page? so that we can check.

The All option isn’t available as the default, none is selected, so all posts are automatically displayed.

For the layout / alignments issues, we will look into the site and will provide you the solution for that.

I’m trying to find a plugin where I can set 3 main category-groups with multiple categories in it. So the users sees a grid of posts and can filter these posts in 3 individual layers.

Example: a bunch of recipes: Filter 1: Moment (breakfast, lunch, dinner, ect.) Filter 2: Ingredient (onions, cheese, avocado, etc.) Filter 3: Establishment (restaurant, lunchroom, beachclub, etc.)

So user can see all breakfast recipes by selecting breakfast in the first filter, but when 1 filter is empty, the user can see all recipes with cheese. But also select all breakfast recipes with cheese served best at lunchrooms, by selecting a categorie in all filters.

Can this be done with this plugin? If yes, AWESOME! Can this be styled easily?

Hi,

Basically, this can be done easily with the plugin. All you need is the following setup –
  1. Custom post type – Recipies
  2. Custom Taxonomies attached to recipes post type – 1. Moments 2. Ingredients 3. Establishments

So, when adding the element to the page, just select the display posts from as custom post type, and in custom post types, select the “Recipes”. Then check the box to enable taxonomy filters.

Regarding the styling – You can style is easily with custom css so you can match the final output with your theme.

I hope this will help you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via contact form on our codecanyon profile page.

Pre-purchase question… Is it possible to have the links in the grid open up in a pop up rather than go to a different page?

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply back. How about the third question?

Do you also have a demo setup for the pop up?

Hi,

For the filters and results, if you want to set them into two column layout, you can do that using css customization.

For popup demo, please take a look here – https://www.infiwebs.com/plugins/sortable-post-grid/ when you hover on the image, you will see two icons, on is for the link and the other is for popup. Try clicking on the eye icon to open the post preview.

I hope this will help you.

Hi,

I’ve bought it the plugin and it looks great. I’ve contact you through your support page as well. Is it possible to have square grid element? I set the thumbnail to 150×150 but what I see is always a rectangular grid element. What can I do?

And Moreover, How can I center the title of the grid element?

Thanks

Hi,

I have already replied to your mail.

Hey I’m interested in this plugin, but would like to ensure some details before I purchase it:

This is my website http://quentinscloset.com . If you scroll to the bottom you will see a feature called Magic Box. Those products are Variable Products and I want to download this plugin so that users can quickly view the variations and add one to their cart.

As you will see there, currently when you hover over one of the “magic boxes” the button that appears is a Select Options box, which takes you to the product page. I would like to know if it is possible to replace that Select Options box with a Quick View box using this plugin.

Awaiting your reply. Thanks!

Hi,

The plugin currently does not provide the compability with the woocommerce, as it was intended to be used with any post type. So if you use the plugin, you can display the quick view for those variable products, but in the quick view, you will see only the product image, title and description.

We are currently working on more features, which will help you to enhance it.

I hope this will help you.

Hi there. Can we create multiple tax filters for a custom post type with this ?

so a grid of events, with filters for 3 taxonomies:

1. Day (mon, tue, wed, thurs) 2. Venue (stage1, stage2, stage3) 3. Type (Music, Comedy, other)

thanks

Joe

Hi,

Yes, this is possible if you have the custom post type and the listed custom taxonomies registered.

I need to have the filter button process it’s filtering via AJAX. I was under the impression this happened prior to purchasing, but it turns out to not be the case.

Hi,

The filter isn’t using ajax as of now. We are working on a major update that will include the ajax filtering as well with some great improvements that you will love.

Regards,
InfiWebs

Do you happen to have a timeline for this feature’s implementation? I’m currently paying my developer to add in the functionality.

Hi,

The update will come before or around last week of this month ( March ).

Thank you,

I have a pre-purchase questions. 1) I built a specific grid in Visual Composer’s Grid Builder. Will I be able to use that grid inside your addon? Or, if not, is there a grid builder within your addon which allows same options as VC’s? 2) I am looking for addon to VC casue it loads all content at once in Post Grid (even when pagination is on) and it slows down whole website. Is there a possibility to load new content only after changing page or clicking ‘load more’ button?

Hi,

Unfortunately, none of the above is possible at the current plugin. We are working on an update, and it will add some of the new functionalities.

InfiWebs

I’m looking at the filters in the demo and it seems that after making your selection, you have to actually click “Filter” for the results to update.

Can the plugin not automatically update the results upon interacting with the filter?

Hi,

The ajax filter functionality is under development currently. Though, we don’t have any ETA on this, since the update will be huge.

Regards,
InfiWebs

Is it possible to have a classic pagination with page number ? And filters are still active when navigate in these pages ?

Hi,

You can try using the ajaxify content option in advanced tab. I hope this will help you.

Thank you,
InfiWebs

What is the purpose of Ascending / Descending Sort Option ? Because I still have the select order on frontpage, but there’s not effect.

Is it possible to have multiple drop-down category filters? (e.g. One drop-down for Cat1,Cat2, another drop-down for Cat3, Cat4, then you AND them together for filtering posts that satisfy both)

Hi,

Yes, that is custom taxonomy registered with WooCommerce products.

Thanks you,

I just bought this plug-in.

However, there seems to be some problems:

1.It doesn’t have the filter function which was advertised, neither does the document mention any filter functions.

2. After saving the page and refresh the page, the “sortable grid” component under visual composer all became plain “text block” components, and I cant’t adjust settings anymore.

3.It doesn’t display any excerpts even if the “Display excerpt in Grid View” is checked.

Can you help me solve these issues? (The version I installed says 2.2 and my Visual Composer version is 5.1)

Thanks!
