Hey,

I have 3 posts types which are sharing the same taxonomies . Post types are "products", "recipes" and "magazine-items", and taxonomies are "product-brands" and "super-category".

I want to create an archive for "super-category" which will include in it all 3 post types. What I did is:

1. created the archive in elementor
2. created 3 views, one for each post type, with filter of "super-category" the same as the current archive.

so far so good.

now, I want to have 1 parametric search to filter results by "products-brand", but even though I enter the filter in all 3 views, it doesn't really work. It filters just 1 view.

SO...

I tried this code:

jQuery(".tax-super-category .products-filter-home select[name='wpv-product-brand']").on("change", function(e) {
    var chosenCat = jQuery(this).find("option:selected").val();
    jQuery(".tax-super-category .super-recipe select[name='wpv-product-brand']").val(chosenCat).trigger("change");
    jQuery(".tax-super-category .super-mag select[name='wpv-product-brand']").val(chosenCat).trigger("change");
  });

It works, but quite unstable. You can see here:

hidden link

try filtering by "morphy richards" - great, the results change accordingly. But if you reload the initial page and then try filtering by "ninja" - the products which belong to "morphy richards" are still appearing even though they don't belong to "ninja".

I'm sure there's a better way of getting about this, but what is it?

Thanks!

Ido

I can see the problem in your website, and the problem is abnormal, please check these:
1) In case it is a compatibility problem, please deactivate all other plugins, and switch to wordpress default theme 2021, deactivate all custom PHP/JS code snippets, and test again

2) Also check if there is any PHP/JS error in your website:

The URL you mentioned above is archive page of taxonomy "super-category", in order to customize it, you need to setup Toolset WordPress Archive for taxonomy "super-category", and add custom search form in it, see our document:
https://toolset.com/course-lesson/creating-a-custom-archive-page/

Please let me know if you need assistance to setup the WordPress Archive

I don’t understand. I already did that. It’s there.

Let me elaborate the problem again:
1) The URL you mentioned above:
hidden link

It is archive page of term אקלים-קיץ taxonomy "super-category"

But you are using some normal post view in above archive page, it will conduct unexpected result.

2) So you will need to follow our document to customize it:
https://toolset.com/course-lesson/creating-a-custom-archive-page/

And I have setup a demo in your website:
1) WordPress Archive here:
hidden link

2) Test it in front-end:
hidden link

I can see it works fine.

And since you are using Elementor plugin, you can follow our document to use Elementor Library block within Toolset WordPress Archive

It also works in my view, which is a regular view with filter "super category is the same as the current archive" - if I only use "products" there. I used a normal view because I need a different layout for each post type - products, magazine items, and recipes. Using the post type conditional in one view wouldn't work too, because the results have a different display + can't appear mixed.

Also, for some reason, I don't get any html except for the product names:

hidden link

I think there is a misunderstanding.

The WordPress archive page is for outputting posts belong to current archive page, you can use Toolset WordPress Archive to customize(Style/format) the results, this is clearly described in the document I mentioned above:
https://toolset.com/glossary/archive/

In you case, since you want to do something differently in the archive page (different layout for each post type - products, magazine items, and recipes), I suggest you create another WordPress page, put those normal post views into that page, it should works as you expected.

#1900799

But Luo that's what I did... almost. I need an archive page for each term in the taxonomy "super category". I don't want to create a different page for each term, so I followed your advise and created a regular page:

hidden link

and in the view section I filtered the "super category" by url param, hence when I go to:

hidden link

I'm getting the right results.

BUT STILL, the default filtering by "brand" doesn't work (e.g. when I filter the products there by brand, it doesn't effect recipes or magazines and they stay the same). So I added my code there:

jQuery(".tax-super-category .products-filter-home select[name='wpv-product-brand']").on("change", function(e) {
    var chosenCat = jQuery(this).find("option:selected").val();
    jQuery(".tax-super-category .super-recipe select[name='wpv-product-brand']").val(chosenCat).trigger("change");
    jQuery(".tax-super-category .super-mag select[name='wpv-product-brand']").val(chosenCat).trigger("change");
  });

...and we're back to square 1. the behaviour is the same as in the initial post here, meaning:

try filtering by "morphy richards" - great, the results change accordingly. But if you reload the initial page and then try filtering by "ninja" - the products which belong to "morphy richards" are still appearing even though they don't belong to "ninja".

Since you are using one search form to filter two view's result, I suggest you disable the AJAX search feature, add the submit button into search form, enable option "Full page refresh when visitors click on the search button", and test again

#1900827

Thanks, but isn't there a way to make this work with ajax? Page refreshed scare customers away + everywhere on the site (and it's a big site) we have ajax which works fine.

No, there isn't such a built-in feature, one AJAX search form can filter only one search result, you can add a feature request for it:

Ok Luo, thanks!
