Sort and Search WordPress Content with FacetWP
FacetWP is an awesome new plugin for WordPress that lets you create highly detailed and configurable search criteria that allows your readers to filter and find exactly what they want. An example from the FacetWP website:
Suppose you want a new pair of jeans. You want Levi’s brand jeans rated 4+ stars and costing under $50. Facets are the sidebar elements that let you narrow the product list based on your needs.
These search criteria (brand, star rating, and cost) are called facets. They can be created with data from taxonomies, custom fields, custom post types, and anything you can imagine. You can arrange your facets using checkboxes, date and number ranges, dropdowns, hierarchies, sliders, and more. It integrates with WPML for multilingual websites and SearchWP for search facets (search bars).
FacetWP is really amazing because it gives users some seriously powerful functionality. This plugin can serve any website well, especially those with a lot of content or ecommerce capabilities (let users really search your products). For $29, it’s a must-have for any WordPress site!
