WooCommerce Product Filter is a first-class plugin that allows the creation of different kinds of filters. The filter works with taxonomies, ratings, prices, brands and it can sort the product by any parameters. What’s even more, the plugin is compatible with the most popular page builders like Elementor and Divi. But don’t worry if you are using none of them, because you can display the filter using shortcode on any page on your website.
Let’s look through the main settings available in the Woo Product Filter Dashboard.
Go to the Woo Product Filter >>Settings path.
Start indexing product parameters
The plugin creates index tables for product parameters for the correct and fast operation of filters. These tables are automatically rebuilt by editing/creating products. However, if you edited products with third-party plugins or methods, and/or noticed that the filter does not work correctly, this option forcefully rebuilds the index tables. If you have a lot of products, the process may take a while.
If you don’t want to click the option manually every time you make changes in the product, you can tick the run in the background checkbox.
Disable automatic calculation of index tables after editing products
The option can be useful if you add products only through imports. After importing, just do a full recalculation of the index tables once by clicking the button above.
Start indexing on a schedule
This option allows setting the indexing on the schedule. Check the box and you’ll get the field for setting the time.
You can enable this option if there are any conflicts between the elements on your website with the filters so that the debug messages will be saved to the WooCommerce SystemStatus Log for further investigation.
Send usage statistics
This option is made by the dev to send information about what plugin options you prefer to use thus helping us make the plugin better for you.
