Does this plugin hides the “out of stock” variations from the filter results? For example, if only 1 product has a “SMALL” size variation but it’s out of stock, will it appear on the SIZE filter?


As I see you have not added a filter by instock. Please add it.

And read this –

Sorry but it still doesn’t work. Check this video:
The filters should show only 1 XL size, because the XL size in Product 2 has gone out of stock. Instead, the filters count 2 products with XL size, which is not correct, although I have followed your tips.

had to deactivate WOOF because of load time. TOO MANY DB QUERIES. i guess the plugin needs an update


By logic if smth worked well, then if troubles was begin – means that was installed script which is source of troubles. Disable dynamic recount and try – if still a lot of queries see issue in another installed scripts

Hi, I am having variations with different prices, f.e. 5 variations with prices from 100 – 200 €. Now when the price range slider is set to 0 – 150 €, the product with variations from 100 to 200 is not appearing at all. (while the criteria are met for some variations). Any idea how to solve this? Thx!


You not understood – it is such test to see is price slider works fine if WOOF disabled, another scripts conflicts can lead to different issues …

It seems to be default behaviour as it excludes as well the product where not all variations meet the price range… Any idea how to modify this? Can’t imagine I am the very first asking that a product with a few matching variations should be there in the list…


Unfortunately, we have no ready solution.

We will write in support of woocommerce. ( I think it happened after the last updates. )

I advise you too to write in support of woocommerce

Hi. I created a different custom page to every category of products in my page: each page shows me a number of products that I added manually. I would like to use the woof filter: I can create the filter and I can see it in my custom page but it doesn’t filter de products of my custom page. Dows this filter works in custo pages or just in the woocommerce pages? Thanks.


To show/filter products on custom page – use shortcode [woof_products] –

Hi there. My woof_quick_search is only showing a few out of 574 products. Any ideas?

Using the below two shortcodes. They’re all set to Catalog visibility: Shop and search results and they’re all published.

[woof_quick_search preload=1 placeholder=’Search’ extended_filter=1 reset_btn=1 reset_text=’Reset’]

[woof_quick_search_results template_result=’grid_1’ always_show_products=1 per_page=500 template_structure=’title,img,price’ orderby=’price-desc’ header_text=”Product Results”]

Is it possible to have the filters display horizontally across a page?


Please try this option –

Hi. I just bought your plugin and i don’t want to get a warning about piracy on the backoffice of the plugin i just bought.

We create websites for customers and i don’t want my customer to think that i’m using ilicit licenses.

How can i remove that warning?


As you developer – by ccs for backend using its id: #plugin_warning

Very poor and incompetent support, just blames the theme not to work and doesn’t even try to explain what the error might be.

Yes u answered, but with at least a day between, and your last reply was “problem with the theme” I cooperated all the way and responded adequately. I would love to buy the plugin if it makes you feel better and it gives me better support.


Please do test with another theme!


but with at least a day between – support answered within 1 business day as described above of this forum

Hi. Does the plugin offers the possibility to have nested filters?

By nested I mean: I have a filter that only shows options from the selection made in the previous filter. Thanks.

In case of yes, this options is in the free version or just in the payment version?


Unfortunately, the plugin does not have this feature. But you can try this extension( only paid version ) –

Demo –

Hello I’ve a variable product with 3 sizes M,L,XL but M is disabled. If we filter with your plugin by size and visitor clicks M will this product be displayed in results?

Thank you


What you mean – “M is disabled” – Describe it in more detail.

If you mean “out of stock”: Please activate an extension –

Check options –

Hello I mean “Variation M is disabled” from this area here:


visitor clicks M will this product be displayed in results? – Yes! because in fact this product has this attribute

Hi, im working on behalf of a clients site is there anyway of making the filter page have a sidebar as well? for example

This is perfect –

This needs a sidebar? –

I presume your going to say its a theme issue. or i need to contact the theme developer…

But if you could help i would appreciate it.

Hello realmag777,

Please, I need a shortcode to only output the “Hierarchy Dropdown” filter to anywhere on the front?

My client really wants to have that functionality 80% across their site.

I am working with a theme (ShopMe) that has your Premium Plugin Embedded.

I will be waiting for your reply as soon as possible.

Kind regards.


I answered you on email

Thanks for the reply.

I have now sent your an email via your profile Message box and also responded to the email you sent me requesting for the necessary information.

I am now urgently awaiting your reply.


By Envato rules support is there where you bought the plugin, please write on support of wp theme you bought …

I was wondering if you could help, this plugin was bundled with A-One theme, however they have dissapeared. So can’t use them for support. My problem is with the Reset Form button, when I select some options from the drop down it filters as its supposed to but when I click Reset Form it doesn’t do anything, that is unless I refresh the page then it works fine, any idea what the issue maybe? I’m stumped to be honest. Thank you for any help


In file – path/to/domain/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-products-filter/js/front.js in line 320 your should change word “on” to “life” It was: jQuery(’.woof_reset_search_form’).on(‘click’, function () { Should become: jQuery(’.woof_reset_search_form’).life(‘click’, function () {

Awesome, thank you so much :)



Is it possible to use different filter settings for different categories?



1) In category pages use shortcode – [woof_products] with attribute : taxonomies=product_cat:X Where X id your product category. ( if you use custom page )

2) In widgets use shortcode [woof] with attribute : * taxonomies=product_cat:X + tax_only – write taxonomies or products slug using comma + by_only – write any by-filter-elements there using comma: by_text,by_price,by_sku,by_author,by_insales,by_instock. Of course firstly user should enable extensions for that by-filter-elements *- Do not forget set the same condition in [woof_products]

3) For show or hide widgets on different pages –

You can read more about shortcodes –!/section_3_1


At my website I currently use the wooffilter. But when i browse between parentcategories and subcategories it shows all the products. Is it possible to only view the products in the subcategorie?

For example I have a parentcategorie “Toys” and within toys is have a subcategorie “puzzles” when i filter these items i see all the products inside these categories. but i only want to see the puzzles ofcourse!

What am i doing wrong?


It depends on the comparison logic.

Try this option –

Thanks for your answer, i already tried this.

Maybe it is better if you want to try on my site or my description was not good enough.

I mean when i filter Kids Rooms > Rugs i see all the items and somewhere in between a couple of rugs. However i only want to see the rugs directly.

Please check the screenshot

Thank you!

Is the plugin compatible with

I tried installing Show Single Variations on our site to display variations in the archive as a single product. The products are displayed on load but whenever I change a page, the single variation products don’t appear.

Is there workaround for this?



Unfortunately not. You need code customization

Hi! are you aware of the possible “endless scroll” problem your plugin may have with Elementor?

Hello, I have same problem – I need to scrol to up of page, when I click to to next page in pagination. this manual helped: , but, it scroll up and then scroll to down again :D Or on some other monitor resolutions scroll to up just to the second row of products… can you help me ? Thank you


Try this JS

jQuery(‘html, body’).animate({ scrollTop: jQuery(”.et_section_specialty”).offset().top }, 777);

Thank you, this works much better ;)



Presale question: Is there a possibility to hide filters in categories?

Example: When i have a filter with “author” for the category books, this filter shouldn’t be available in the category DVDs.

Is there also a setting to change the range in range filters? So i can setup steps like 10 $, 20 $, 30 $ or something like that?

Thanks for your answer, but i don’t understand it really

- So is it possible to show different filters in different product categories?

- The predefined steps – okay, but is it possible to chance the scale under the range filter, too?


1) yes

2) Only on price (filter) slider

Is it possible for display and filter the product categories in a collapsible accordion?


Yes! Check an option please –
