I created a custom user field called Web Category ( checkbox ), and what I want is to show the products base on the product category and the "Web Category" user field.

Ex.
Current Logged-in User has selected the "Art" checkbox then the Views will filter the product list to only show the Art Product Category.

Does it makes sense?

Thanks

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Well - as I understand, you want a view to display list of filtered items belongs to your user field value - correct? If yes,

I need problem URL and access details to check how you configured your field and view.

*** Please make a FULL BACKUP of your database and website.***
I would also eventually need to request temporary access (WP-Admin and FTP) to your site. Preferably to a test site where the problem has been replicated if possible in order to be of better help and check if some configurations might need to be changed.

I would additionally need your permission to de- and re-activate Plugins and the Theme, and to change configurations on the site. This is also a reason the backup is really important. If you agree to this, please use the form fields I have enabled below to provide temporary access details (wp-admin and FTP).

I have set the next reply to private which means only you and I have access to it.

Ok - thank you for sharing access details.

Now, you need to adjust your custom checkboxes field values in order to have unified values with your product category and your user custom field.

With your user field "web-category" - you need to set the exact slug of taxonomy term as value for all of your checkboxes options.
=> hidden link

As you can see with the above link, I've set the "art-design-media" as value for the option "Art, Design & Media". You need to set the same slug as per the taxonomy term here for all your checkboxes options:
=> hidden link

With the user for which you shared access details "Iadmin_paypercontent ", I've only set first checkbox "Art, Design & Media" and saved the profile.

I'm displaying the view as given under:

[wpv-view name="article-archive" wpvproductcat="[types usermeta='web-category' separator=',' user_is_author='true'][/types]"]

And I've added following taxonomy filter to your view:

Select posts with taxonomy:
Product categories slug in one of those set by the View shortcode attribute wpvproductcat
eg. [wpv-view name="view-name" wpvproductcat="xxxx"]

I can see that now as with my profile only one checkbox is checked "Art, Design & Media", its correctly filtering the results.
=> hidden link
