Hi,

I have a horizontal search (make, model, year + search button) on a category page.

After clicking the filter button, it redirects to the main shop page instead of displaying the filtered product results. I know they’re there because the filtering works if I check the “redirect to product if only one result” option.

Any ideas? Thank you.

It seems when I click the filter submit button it adds the query string to the url but also reloads back to the shop page (instead of applying the filter while staying on the same category page)

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing my plugin. Please email me your website FTP and Admin details along with the URL where I see VPF search form. You can email me these details on wpinstinct@gmail.com. I would be more than happy to help you.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hello,

I’m helping a client of mine build an auto parts e-commerce store and I was thinking of using this plugin to help. My question is does this plugin integrate well with the bulk product CSV importing ability of Woocommerce. For example, if I have columns on the CSV spreadsheet entitled “Make”, “Model”, and “Year”, would they be able to be mapped to the extra data added by your plugin?

I’m also looking to add around 8000 products to the shop. Can your plugin handle that much data?

Hi there,

Thanks for showing ihterest in my plugin. This plugin allows you to import Makes/Models/Years in bulk and assign to multiple existing products at same time. If you share your Email ID with me then I can email you a demo CSV format which my plugin uses for bulk import.

Regarding 8000 products, it depends on your server configuraion. If you are using a high configurion based server then it wouldn’t be a problem to import any amount of data.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Great! You can send that CSV to info@luremarketing.ca

Hello, There is some conflicting information in the comments so I would like to confirm, can you search within any given category. Like 1940-Cadillac-Sixty Special, 5.8L V8 Engine, category= Fuel System, Keyword= Float Bowl. Would your plug in then only show things specific to a 1940 Caddy Sixty Special with a v8 engine within the Fuel System category with the keyword Float Bowl. Or would it show me anything that has Float bowl in the title regardless of category. Next is your plug in compatible with any multi vendor plug ins such as Dokan Pro, WP Marketplace etc? Does your plug in support front end editing of a product? I dont want my vendor to have access to the backend of the wp admin dashboard but dont know if your plug-in would then be displayed on the frontend for my vendors to edit their products. Does your plug in also support a database with automobiles as early as 1910? Another plug in I found doesnt so thats why Im asking that question. Sorry for all the questions, hope we can do business. Email is linwoodtd@outlook.com Thanks

Hi there,

Thanks for showing interest in my plugin. I would be happy to answer for your questions:

1. It will search against the complete combination of search terms. So if I answer for your example speciially:
-1940 Caddy Sixty Special with a v8 engine within the Fuel System category with the keyword Float Bowl: Correct
- Would it show me anything that has Float bowl in the title regardless of category - Incorrect

2. I didn’t get a chance to test this plugin with these plugins.

3. No way to edit terms for product from front end.

4. No, it doesn’t come with any pre-ready database and you have to create a CSV file yourself with teh terms your website support.

I will suggest you to purchase this plugin and in case if it doesn’t work then I would be happy to refund you.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Would you be able to edit the code in any way to make it so vendors could add cars off this plug in to their products from their front end dashboard?

I think there are few plugins available in market which allows to show same admin editor on front end too so you try to find one which suits you. My plugin just adds a new meta box so it should fit well with those plugins. In case if it doesn’t work then I can try to help you further. Thanks!

hi there,

Hi there,

Thanks for showing interest in my plugin. It looks possible with my plugin what you have shown me in reference website. There I will suggest you to go ahead with my plugin and in case if it doesn’t work then you can request a refund.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hello, how can i generate an horizontal shourtcode for pages?

Thanks

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing my plugin. I would be happy to help you. While you are adding a shortcode to any page/post, just add another parameter called view=”H” and it should show the form in horizontal view. You may require to do a little bit CSS there. In case you want me to help you then just email me your website details and I will do this for you.

You can check complete shortcode in plugin documentation here: http://vpfymm.wpinstinct.com/documentation/

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

hi ya… I purchased this plugin yesterday however was unaware that you had an alternative one – WooCommerce Vehicle Parts Finder – Make/Model/Year – which would be much more suitable for my website as the filters are in the correct order….

Is there any way to swap my purchase round to the MMY one?

Thanks

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing my plugin. YOu can place another order for my Make/Model/Year plugin and at the same time request a refund through this URL: https://codecanyon.net/refund_requests/new

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

I changed the Terms Metabox Template to Tree View which has made things much easier for me because I have to add a lot of terms to one product. But now when I save it doesn’t save any new items I check off. Is there a limit to how many search terms a product can have?

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing my plugin. I would be happy to guide you in correct direction.

This issue mostly happens because of one of the server configuration called max_input_vars. Increase its value to a large value ( eg: 5000 ) and it will start saving new items. Once you test it please let me know how it goes. If you don’t know about how to change the server configuration then you can either ask your hosting for this or provide me FTP details and I will do this for you. You can email me these details on wpinstinct@gmail.com.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

That worked! Thanks so much!

You are welcome! Please leave 5 star ratings if you like our plugin and support. Thanks!

Hello.

I have Woocommerce 2.6.1 can I use this plugin on this version?

Hi there,

Thanks for showing interest in my plugin. I hope that it will work well with WooCommerce 2.6.1 as well but in case there is any issue I would be there for your help.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Is there a way I could add a reset button for the search in my own code (outside of the YPF (YMM) plugin?

It’s not possile through plugin functions but I can write a small code snippet for you which can help. There I would expect a small bonus for this work as this is something outside of plugin support. Please email me at wpinstinct@gmail.com if you want to discuss it further. Thanks!

Can you kindly help me with the confusion I’m having? I see this plugin listed twice with different creation dates but both appear to be the same? I want to be sure I’m getting the one with the garage feature.

Is there a difference?

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing my plugin. This plugin is exactly same of my another plugin but with different order of levels. If you see in current plugin it says Years on first and then Makes and Models where second plugin says Makes on first and then Moels and Years. Rest both plugins are same and come with garage feature.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Thanks for the help – I ended up buying the one that mentions “engine” in it. Still going over the docs to implement it. :)

Thanks for purchasing my plugin, BTW both plugins come with Engines on fourth level. Play with it and let me know if you need my assistance anywhere. Thanks!

Hello,

So far I am loving the product. It does exactly what I need it to do. I have one question though.

How can I have a search bar widget show up at the top of the woocommerce default shop page? I am not seeing that option.

If there is a special snippet of code, please send it through and I will install and test.

Thanks

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing my plugin. I would be happy to help you. Please try something like following code snippet in your theme’s functions.php file and let me know if it helps or not:

function vpf_filter() {
    echo do_shortcode ( '[woo_vpf_ymm_filter title="Select Your Vehicle" view="H" label_year="Select Year" label_make="Select Make" show_model="true" label_model="Select Model" show_category="true" show_my_vehicles="false" show_keyword="false" label_reset_search="Reset Search"]' );
}
add_action ( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop', 'vpf_filter', 15 );

I will wait for your response.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Is there an option to toggle or reverse “Disabled empty terms on front end dropdowns” feature added in the new update?

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing my plugin. I would be happy to help you.

Cuirrently there is not a way to toggle/show empty terms through settings panel but it can easily be done using a small code snippet through your current theme. Please add following code snippet at the end of your current child theme’s functions.php file and let me know how it goes:

function vpf_toggle_empty_terms ( $args ) {
    if ( isset ( $args['hide_empty'] ) ) {
        $args['hide_empty'] = false;
    }

    return $args;
}
add_filter ( 'woo_vpf_ymm_terms_args', 'vpf_toggle_empty_terms' );

I will wait for your feedback.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Are there a way for to change the “Add to cart” button for to “Contact the seller” or something like this?. Is no a good idea to go to Paypal o some online pay system if the user buy a car.

Hi there,

Thanks for showing interest in my plugin. If you read the plugin documentation, its an addon of WooCommerce plugin and doesn’t work independently. Regarding “Add to Cart” button its a part of WooCommerce plugin itself and not through my plugin. You or your developer can change it easily using WooCommerce hooks but this is something not falls under my plugin support so I wouldn’t be able to help you there.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team
