Hi Shane

When I do this search and select an item from the list, the taxonomy becomes empty and all the companies are displayed.

is it possible to keep the search results until we do a new search?
to be able to consult each of the results

Hi Guy,

Given that the sidebar view is being filtered based on the current page that you are viewing then it is not possible.

If the page changes then the results on the side will change as well. Its not possible to keep the results of the previous page on the current page.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Guy,

I did some thinking on this and no it isn't possible to achieve.

I was thinking that we could pass the current page ID as a parameter when you click on the sidebar, this would indeed cause the sidebar to retain the previous post listings but when you navigate to post 2 then list 1 will show. When you're on Post 3 the original list that was to be shown on Post 2 will be shown on Post 3.

The main issue now is that when you're on Post 1 there won't be a list because there won't be an ID passed into the URL for the view to be filtered.

Please let me know what you think of this as this is the best approach.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Guy,

The main issue is that the first view won't display anything.

You will end up having to use 2 identical views, one that filters based on a url parameter and the other filter based on the current page.

Essentially we will need to hide the first view after it has been displayed .

Please provide me with admin access to the site so that I can help you with this.
Thanks,
Shane

Hi Guy,

I had a look at this and it seems it won't be possible as.

I had initially thought that this view was being filtered by the current post but it isn't it is actually a search view. So we won't be able to keep the previous search results when you navigate to another page.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Shane
thanks for trying, I thought it was possible to block the search on this page until we had made a new one.
But the fields are empty when we choose another result.
and if you don't see anything else, I close this request

Hi Guy,

I just had an idea, could you confirm that you want the previous page's search result to remain until a new search is performed?

We can actually use the current URL values and append it to the URL of the posts in the list as parameters.

Whenever a URL in the sidebar is clicked it will pass the Parameters of the Current page to the page that you clicked to, this will in turn filter the sidebar to the list that was on the previous page.

We can keep doing this until a new search is performed.

Please let me know.
Thanks,
Shane

Hi Guy,

Have a look here now.

As you can see if you click on one of the links in the sidebar, it will take you to the new page but retain the filtered items from the previous page.

Unless the user filters the view again then the results will remain the same.

This was achieved by formatting the content in the view like this.


<ul class="wpv-loop js-wpv-loop">
		<wpv-loop>
			<li>
           
				<h4><a href="[wpv-post-url]?wpv-discipline=[wpv-search-term param='wpv-discipline']&wpv-public=[wpv-search-term param='wpv-public']">[wpv-post-title]</a></h4>
			</li>
		</wpv-loop>
	</ul>

Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks,
Shane
