Works with posts and custom post types

  • Filter by categories, taxonomy terms or tags
  • Exclude or include categories, terms or tags
  • Hide child categories and terms
  • Use on Blog Page or Custom Post Type Archive
  • Or use on a Page Template

Pagination

  • Useful when you want to limit the number of posts displayed
  • Not necessary though since Filtering will bring the items into focus when filtered
  • Caveat on pagination: Only the categories/terms/tags that are found on the page show in Filtering Navigation

Display options help you get the look you want

  • Set width of each item
  • Show the featured image, post title and/or excerpt. Your choice.
  • Change the Show All Word to match your site's content
  • Use post thumbnail or set your image size
  • Upload a default image that displays if a post doesn't have a featured image
  • Add a custom class to style Filtering to your taste

Directions for Use

This assumes you have installed the Filtering Section on your site. Any problems, reference Pagelines Store Overview.

Drag Section into your Page Template or Content Area

Pagelines Drag & Drop

  1. Select either the Page Template or Content Area
  2. Select the Page to add it to
  3. Drag the Filtering Section into Active Section
  • While you can’t clone the Filtering Section (have more than one Filtering Section on a page) you can have different Filtering options for different pages.
  • This means you can have a Filtering Section for posts and categories and if you want another page with the Filtering Section with posts and tags or a custom post type and taxonomy.
  • You can have the Filtering Section on different Page templates too, just can’t have two in the same template.

  Add or Edit Page using that Page Template

Pagelines Select Template

  •  Once you have the right template selected, save the page as a draft so that the Filtering Tab shows up in Pagelines Meta Settings for that page.
  • You can use the Filtering Section without changing any options if you are displaying all categories for your standard posts.  Otherwise continue with the directions to customize Filtering.

  • Filtering is set up to use the standard post type and category taxonomy.
  • Make sure your taxonomy matches your post type, i.e. post and categories or post tags, custom post type and taxonomy .
  • Here the Demo post type has been selected with the Kind custom taxonomy.
  • Filtering lets you exclude categories, terms or tags. Just enter then name of the category, term or tag to exclude it. Separate multiple terms with a comma. If nothing is entered, all categories/terms/tags will display.
  • Or, if you have a shorter list of terms to include, put in your list and choose Include from the drop down box.
  • If you don’t want child categories or terms to display check the box to hide them.
  • Set a width for each post.  Default is 250 px.
  • Change the word used for displaying all posts. Default is “Show All.”
  • Set the post order. Default is Post ID.
  • Choose to show the image on top, show image only or show text only
  • Choose to show the post date and author.
  • Choose your date format.
  • You can show the excerpt. If you have manually crafted excerpts that excerpt will display (no word limit).
  •  Otherwise the excerpt is pulled from the beginning of the post and trimmed down to number of words you select.

Display Options Filtering

  • By default Filtering uses the thumbnail size of your featured images
  • You can change the image width and height if you don’t want to use the featured image thumbnail (Make sure not to set the width wider than the item width set under Display Options).
  • You may have posts without a featured image.  Here you can upload or choose from the media library an image to use when no featured image is present.
  • Add a nice frame and rounded corners to your images by checking the Add a Frame to Images.
  • Filtering works best without pagination. If you want to use pagination set the number of posts to display per page.
  • Try and set the number of posts to display to be equal to or more than what is in your WordPress -> Settings -> Reading option.
  • Using Pagination on your Blog and Custom Post Type Archive Pages can create an issue with pagination if the number of posts is smaller than what is in your WordPress Settings. Pages 2/3 and on will return a 404 error.
  • To fix pagination errors, choose to override the setting for either the Blog/Home if for regular posts or Custom Post Type Archive.

Custom Style

  • Add a custom style to get the look you want with Filtering
  • Try entering custom-style to get a different Filtering Navigation
