    Hi

    I’d like to do a filter/search for my custom field types.

    Is there a plugin/or sample code anyone has tried using which works well. In effect I’d like to achieve something like this…

    http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/samsung-computing/laptops/laptops/315_3226_30328_43_ba00002921-bv00301568-ba00002920-bv00196049/400-650-criteria.html

    Where I’d be able to filter the custom post types.

    Any advice, guidance or tips would be hugely appreciated!

    Thanks

    Hi @codynew

    No worries, i should realy find some time to write a tutorial about this, but it is quite easy.

    First, you need to render out your filters – I’ll leave this bit to you. The filteres should be clickable links to the same url with an added $_GET param that contains the filter name and filter value eg:

    website.com/filter-page/?foo=bar&foo2=bar2

    Next, you need to edit the page template and look at the available $_GET params. Use these to modify the $args that you then send to the WP_Query class.

    Loop through the query results and then output the HTML.

    Easy!

    Good luck

    Thanks
