Hello, I would like to translate your plugin in French on my site and I can not get there with the extension Loco translate. Even in your plugin, there is no .po file in English or any other. How should I go about it? Thank you for your help

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

If you are good with Poedit then you can do it yourself easily. If you want me to create a po file for English then I can create it for you. However I am working on next updates in the plugin so better if I provide you a po file after these changes otherwise you can miss the translations for new strings whcih I will add in next update.

Please let me know your reviews on this.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

I want to add cars engines in two categories with petrol and diesel. How can I do this. I mean like an autodoc.co.uk `s version

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

Currently https://www.autodoc.co.uk/ is down but as per I understand, you need one more level for Petrol and Diesel along with Years/Makes/Models/Engines. If yes then it would require custom work in plugin which will cost you some extra USD’s.

Please email me on wpinstinct@gmail.com if it sounds okay to you.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

I solved this problem thanks) But I have another question. How can I delete years section from there? I want only use Makes/Models/Engines . Or how can I change their places like Makes/Models/Engines/Years ?

For this I would recommend you to purchase my another plugin which comes with this order Makes/Models/Years/Engines : https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-vehicle-parts-finder-makemodelyear/13458497

Then I can customize this plugin to have no more years section. Once you purchase my another plugin then you can request a refund for this purchase through CodeCanyon so you don’t pay extra for another sale.


How can I update the plugins?

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

Please delete old plugin from the server and upload new one. This will not delete previous configured settings from the server. Still if you take a backup of your database that would be great.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hi there again.

I want to change style of plugin. Where I can do it? Add new background and change button etc.

Hi, You can do it yourself through your current theme’s style.css file easily if you are good with CSS or provide me your website details and also color styles you need and I can do the required changes for you. Thanks!

Since updating the plugin I can not see the icon to add line. Do you know what is due? Before I saw a positive green symbol, now only a negative symbol appears red. How do I add lines?

Hi there, please share your website details with me as it works fine for me even with latest configurations. Thanks!

I solved the problem, change the browser because with CHROME I could not add new lines. Thank you!

I think it should be just a cache issue on chrome for you. Thanks!


When I disable products (set to draft, or out of stock) the associated terms still appear in the frontend widget. Is there a way to hide those year/model/make terms what aren’t associated to any products?

Replied on your Emai ID.

Yes it’s perfect now. Thank for your help!

You are welcome mate!

Hey there. How can we output a single category?

Eg: user selects make and model and year, and we ‘automatically’ select the category we want to show?

To clarify, we have 4 main product categories -I would like to restrict the output on the ‘seat covers’ page to just that category – so if there is a way to manipulate your plugin to just show ‘seat covers’, even if it is just a ‘pre-selected’ or default selection, that would be great?

Please let me know urgently, love this plugin, just trying to figure this last part out.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Sorry for misunderstanding, I got you this time.

This is something to doable through a logic in theme. If you are good with WordPress then you can do it yourself. If you want me to do it for you then please email me your website details along with wp-admin access and FTP credentials on my Email ID: wpinstinct@gmail.com


Have sent you the full details as requested. Look forward to the result! Thanks in advance for the assistance.


Hello, I just downloaded your plugin, but I need the order to be Make/Model/Engine/Year. i notice you mention to other users to buy your other plugin, but as these are the same price, could you not just send me the other plug-in files, or the code to change the order on the plug-in ive already downloaded?

Sorry but even I don’t see any purchase tag with your name so surely something went wrong during payment. You should contact CodeCanyon support for this as it should be something fixable by them.

ah, i see what has happened. I downloaded this as a guest as i forgot i had a codecanyon account. how would i request a refund for this?

You should email to CodeCanyon support for this concern as I am not sure about guest account much. Thanks!

Hi there,

Is it possible show searched products with categories in result page? For instance when I choose audi, a4 , diesel . in the result page not just show related products. I want to show categories which is related products includes.

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

Sorry, It’s not possible to show category template as my plugin comes with products listing template only. However I can try to implement a custom solution for you if you bady need it and this will cost you additional charges as it doesn’t fall under plugin support.

Please email me on this ID: wpinstinct@gmail.com if you are interested for custom work.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hello! This is an excellent plugins. But I have a problem, approximately I can add 200 lines per product, I need to be able to configure to add more lines because vehicles are left without adding. The vehicles are all uploaded, but when I update the product only register up to 200 lines approximately. Can you give me an idea how to correct this problem please. Thank you!

Hi there, thanks for purchasing and liking my plugin.

I couldn’t understand if this issue comes with CSV import tool or while you are trying to add lines manually from admin in product edit screen. It seems just a server configuration issue for max_input_vars setting which I can try to change through config files.

Please email me your website admin login details along with the steps I need to follow in order to see the issue so that I can help you with this. My Email ID is wpinstinct@gmail.com

Hi I just got the vehicle parts finder. Purchase code: 994cb315-0d91-4648-853d-0a9ee35ab196 The install failed.

See response from woocommerce below: Unpacking the package… Installing the plugin… The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found. Plugin install failed.

Can you help to trouble shoot? really want to get it installed on my site. Thanks! Robin

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

Please extract/unzip downloaded file and find another zip file from extracted directory. Try installing this and let me know if you still face any issue.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

We are successfully using your plugin but it is missing one field in the search to be perfect.

We need the first search box to be “Machine Type” with the following values: – ATV, Cruiser, Dirt Bike, Dual Sport, Sport Bike, Touring, UTV

Then the “Machine Type” field should be followed by Year, Make, Model. We were thinking we could use the “Engine” option as our “Machine Type” since we are not really using it but it would need to appear before “Year”.

Is it possible to put the engine field first? I noticed you have a second plugin that reverses YMM to MMY but engine seems to stay in the same place.

What are our options?

Hi there, thanks for having my plugin.

You can try changing the labels of Year with Machine Type and label of Engine with Year from plugin’s settings panel. Then adjust Machine Types in third column and Years in fourth column of CSV and rest remains same.

In admin dashboard, it still can show same old labels as I will fix this in upcoming version but on front end it should look fine. Please try it with small amount of data first and let me know how it looks.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Is there a way to show the “My Garage” section separate from the year/make/model dropdowns? I want to have both on the page, but I want “my garage” in the header of the page and “year/make/model” selections in another area of the page. Thank you!

Hi there,

You can call it through PHP function within your template files easily:

I want to buy this plugin but I have some queries

1. I have a category and inside that 3 sub categories. If customer selects main category, will it show the products from all 3 subcategories and If he only want to filter the products of particular subcategory and he selects that subcategory from drop down. Will it show the products from that sub category?

2. I want to add search form in home page. I wanna know where will it show result.

3. If I add widget in sidebar of any category. Will it filter products in that particular category.

4. I only want Make, Model, Year and category drop downs, can I hide Engine and Keyword fields. Also, can I change the order of the fields to 1.Make, 2. Model, 3. Year, 4. Category ?

Hi there, thanks for showing interest in my plugin.

1) It will include products from sub categories too but I can help you with enable/disable sub-category products through external code snippet.

2) If you add the widget to category page, it will still show products from all categories till user don’t select any particular category from drop down. Again I can help you with this by pre-selecting current category in drop down so that it does what you need. For this customization only, I would expect some extra USD’s from you as it doesn’t fall under plugin support.

3) Please purchase this plugin if you need this order Make/Model/Year. This plugin contains same features except a different order: https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-vehicle-parts-finder-makemodelyear/13458497?s_rank=5

4) it uses home page URL with query string parameter in the URL. It follows the same layout of WooCommerce shop page.
