How can I update the plugin to the newest version on my site? I downloaded the new version but I don’t want to lose any of the information or settings I already have in the older version.

Hi there,

Follow these steps to update plugin with latest version:
1) Delete old plguin from server using any File Manager tool eg: FileZilla
2) Download lates version of my plugin from CodeCanyon
3) Upload this plugin to server using same File Manager tool
4) This whole process will not loss our already uploaded information so go ahead with no worries

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hello, question before I make the purchase. We’ll be selling auto parts and wheels and tires as well. Is there a way to create a completely different set of filters (ie: Wheel Brand/Size/Diameter/Aspect Ratio) to popup as soon as the user selects a Wheel or Tire Category?

Hi there, thanks for showing interest in my plugin.

There are two ways to do it:

1. You can change the Make/Model/Year/Engine labels from plugin’s settings panel with your required one’s: Wheel Brand/Size/Diameter/Aspect Ratio ) and rest will remain same. That way you can update plugin in future without any problem.

2. Making changes in plugin files directly but then you will no more be able to update my plugin in future.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hi, thanks for the reply. What I’m trying to see though is if I can have multiple set of filters depending on the category selected. For example, users can still select their car year/make/model but when they select Wheel category- a new set of filters will populate such as wheel brand/size/diameter/aspect ration etc.

Ok then it would require a lot of customization for it. I can do it for you but it will cost you some USD’s for this custom work. Please email me on wpinstinct@gmail.com if you interested for custom work.


Is there a way to organize search results by category with this plugin? For instance if the search is 2015 Ford F150 it will show products by the woocommerce product_cat taxonomy term instead of the individual product name. Is this possible?

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

This plugin shows only products as search results and doesn’t allow to organize results by categories. However I can try to help you on this but this will cost you few extra USD’s for this custom work.

Email me on wpinstinct@gmail.com if you are interested for further discussion on this.

Just wondering where i can add ga tracking code to the theme? i cant see theme header php in the editor..

Hi there,

Sorry I didn’t understand you. I think you were supposed to post this message on another page but mistakenly submit on this thread. Please confirm if it’s for me and if yes then please explain it to me so that I can try to help you on this.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team


The theme is working fine but i am having major speed issues, i have good hosting and caching plugin but still very slow.

The site is much larger than anticipated and maybe wordpress might have been a bad choice. I have done a google speed test and the results are 23/100 which is quite bad.

Is there anything that can be done with the theme as per directions below from test that might improve speed?

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

I would like to know the google test speed without my plugin as well. I am not sure if its something irrelevant to my plugin and want me to help you on this.

As I see you are already running W3 Total Cache plugin so it should already sort out most of the issues from the list you provided. If it doesn’t, then I would require your website access for further investigation.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Hi, First of all, congrats for a great plugin. I loved working with this plugin. My only query is I dont want the search results to be shown on search page instead I want them to be shown on the same page where search is located. How can I do this? Please reply ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin and appreciating my work.

I understand your concern about keeping the users on same page for search results but it wouldn’t be that easy. It would require a lot of customization in plugin files which way it will no more be updatable in future. In addition, this custom work will cost you few additional USD’s as well. Please email me on wpinstinct@gmail.com if you want to discuss further about this.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Love the plugin! Was wondering if there is a way to connect the filter to the ‘Product Categories’ widget such that the ‘Hide empty categories’ option is respected with filtered results.

Hi there, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

There is no direct option to hide empty categories but I can write a custom code snippet in your current theme which will do what you want. However it can slow down the loading of dropdowns a litle. Please share your website FTP and Admin details with me and I will implement code snippet there.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team


The edit single product page becomes too slow with the VPF (YMM) Terms Panel so I have to deactivate the plugin to edit my products…. Very annoying.

Is there a way to turn this off under the edit page ?

You should be considering to make a better Panel for this, because it’s to slow and time consuming scrolling through the list of all the conditions.


Best Regards Erik

Hi Erik, thanks for purchasing my plugin.

I am already aware with this issue and have found a solution too to fix this in next update. Currently product edit screen loads slow because of loading all VPF terms on same screen. What I will do in next version is:
  • Product edit screen will load all the data except VPF Terms
  • For VPF Terms, I will add another quick edit link per product which will allow to add/update VPF Terms only and will not show other product date
  • That way yo can edit product details in same speed you do without my plugin

I hope it make sense. Please let me know what you say about this. If you like this suggestion then please provide me your website FTP and Admin details on my Email ID wpinstinct@gmail.com and I will implement this on your server for the time.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Demo site is down.

Thanks for informing me about this.

I am working on it and it will be live in next 1 to 2 hours. Thanks!

I wish you would create a simple walk through video of how to use this plugin. I believe so many questions could be answered with a simple video. Like once I create my list how to I add it to page? Just saying a video would make it so easy…..

Hi there, thanks for showing interest in my plugin.

I understand your concern very well and would be happy to provide you access of a demo website so you can see how it works. Please share your Email ID with me and I will setup a demo account for you.

I have another question. Once installed and the customer selects a vehicle using the vehicle parts finder does the selected vehicle show up on the checkout page along side the product they are purchasing? I am wanting this so I have record of the vehicle selected. Thanks John

Sorry, It doesn’t show selected vehicle details along with order. For this it requires some custom work which will cost you some extra USD’s in addition of its original cost. Let me know if you have any other question for me. Thanks!


I have some pre-sales question: 1. Can re-order the filter to be like: Make, Model, Year, Engine? 2. Can I import product association with Make, Model, Year, Engine? 3. If I filter a car the results can be displayed by categorys? If I have more categorys for the selected car it is usefull to display categorys for first and after the products If the user selects a matched category. 4. What happens if I have a database with more than 80.000 rows? This plugin can work quickly or will be slowly?

Hi there, thanks for showing interest in my plugin.

1. You should purchase my another plugin for your required order: https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-vehicle-parts-finder-makemodelyear/13458497

2. Yes you can import product associations while importing terms.

3. Currently there is no way to show categories as search result but if you need it I can do custom code on your server which will change search results to show categories over products. However as it wouldn’t fall under plugin support so you have to pay some additional USD’s for this custom work.

4. It depends on server configuration as well. In case it slows down the server and you are no more going to use it, I would be happy to refund you.

Thanks, WP Instinct Team

Great! Thank you for your answer. I will buy the refered plugin. :)

Hi there,

I’m finding that when I click “Reset Search” it takes me to my homepage (root) instead of back to the /shop page. I also notice that when you click search instead of doing it domain/shop/?=searchquery it’s domain/?=searchquery

I’m not sure if that’s normal or not, but it might have something to do with it.

Also, if you’re on the /shop/ page and you hover over the “Reset Search” option you can see the URL is correct, and functions correctly. It’s not until you click “Search” and the results appear does the “Reset Search” button just direct you to the homepage (root).
