I have this dev site with a view here... hidden link user:flywheel pass: caffinated-support the view is only showing 1 category of products, so there are 255 products, that are returned by the view to be filtered. When I set it to ajax filter on change it just spins and gets stuck accessing admin-ajax.php If I use page refresh on submit it works fine, just a performance issue with the ajax.... Now I would be happy with the refresh, if I was able to have the refresh happen automatically on filter change. That is how hidden link WOOF does it and it works quite well. so if my ajax isn't fixable and it's a limitation, then is there anyway to make the submit happen on filter change automatically using JS or something?? using a submit button doesn't work well at all with my design as people wouldn't know why it's not changing.

in a some what unrelated question... will you guys ever use the rest api and not admin-ajax.php ??

Yes, you are right, the Views AJAX feature is based on WordPress admin-ajax.php, and there isn't any plan to switch to REST API.

I have checked the URL you mentioned above, I can only see a htaccess login window.

And the problem you mentioned above is abnormal, there should be some JS/PHP errors in your website:
check if there is any PHP/JS error in your website:


I provided the user name and password to access the sites front end, here is it AGAIN:

pass: caffinated-support

I have no js errors, or anything but I will turn on the views debugging now.


Is it likely to be caused by this message? looks like the WP scheduler is having issues, So I'm opening a ticket with my host. do you know if this would effect the toolset sorting.

"WooCommerce is updating product data in the background
Product display, sorting, and reports may not be accurate until this finishes. It will take a few minutes and this notice will disappear when complete. "


Ohh nope that does not look like the issue, you can also see the same broken filter on the "live" site and that one does NOT have the scheduled tasks issues 🙁 so back to you. I can provide access to the backend of the dev site if you like.


oops I didn't have the latest release! it fixed me up, sorry for that one.
