Right now I am running into issue wether I should use a Filter Plugin or the Posts Widget. I like the “fluidness” of the Posts widget, but have troubles to style Taxonomies.
I have different Terms and I want to show them in single Brackets like [Family] [Journey] [Adventure]. Right now Tax’ are shown this way: Family, Journey, Adventure
The second Question:
The Default “All” Filter seems to be translated in System Language. Since The website is supposed to be in German the Label needs to be “Alle”. The backend and system language has to stay English.
I will show both issues in a picture below:
On the 2nd One is a Custom Query Loop with Search&Filter Pro. It works but the way it works looks and feels outdated since I can’t find much solutions to style the Filter. But there you can see how the Taxonomies look like.
If you can call out a well working Filter Plugin (FacetWP is to Expensive) I would appreciate.
If you know a little bit of css, you can make it look really nice.
GB is working perfectly with the Bricks native query loop. PG also works in general, but I had some issues which I could not solve (for example infinity scrolling with PG facet and bricks query loop). But the grids from PG work well in Bricks, so I used them instead of the Bricks native query.
The advantage of PG over GB is that PG offers a very reasonable life-time purchase ($119 lifetime, 100 sites), where GB does only offer annual ($49 per year, 1 site).
I do like the open architecture of PG and I managed to write my own widgets for that tool. That’s why I still keep it around.
The PG support is quick and together we managed to improve even one of their widgets. I did not have to use the GB support, so I don’t know about them.
Overall, I find GB to be my number 1 filtering tool at the moment because of the very good integration with Bricks.
PG is on second place due to the not yet perfect Bricks integration.
Search&Filter Pro is also still there, due to the good price point and because it works now thanks to cmstew.
