Features FacetWP - Advanced filtering and facet search plug-in for WordPress

  • Smart filtering: Users can find what they are looking for faster because only relevant filtering options are displayed. This leads to better-feeling customers and increased sales.
  • Use existing data: Use aspects of your site's existing post types, custom fields, and taxonomies. FacetWP can also automatically run on your existing archive pages.
  • lightning fast: FacetWP is ajax based, so filtering is fast and doesn't require a page refresh. The plugin also uses index tables for speed.
  • Works with most themes: Add facets anywhere on the page using shortcodes or PHP. Other built-in features (pagination, sorting, user selection) are also just shortcodes.
  • many types of facets: FacetWP includes several facet types, including checkboxes, dropdown lists, date ranges, sliders, and even proximity (geolocation).
  • developer friendly: Developers can take advantage of the plug's many hooks for a high degree of customization.
