I am trying to: Filter a view by custom field checkbox

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: a filtered list of posts (when I check the checkbox and click "search"

Instead, I got: the same unfiltered list

Minesh helped me with the code for a similar view. When I copied and pasted that code into this view, it did not work.


Hi Clay,

I'mmohammed, the Toolset support team leader. I will do my best to help you.

Unfortunately, Minesh is away today and the next Monday as well so, I don't think it will a good idea to wait until he comes to fix your issue.

So, I will handle your request. it would take some time for me to check your website and check the code that Minesh added.

So, please wait until I get back to you again.



Hi Clay,

I added a Query Filter to your view that filters by URL parameter (wpv-wpcf-work-status) that depends on the checkbox value.

Can you please test it and let me know if it works?



Yes, that's great. Thanks!
