Product Filter – Tags

Legacy Widget

↑ Back to top
As of WordPress 5.8, the Block Widgets Editor replaces the previous widgets administration. The widget described here is available as a Legacy Widget when using the new Block Widgets Editor. However, to maintain full widget settings functionality, you must install the Classic Widgets plugin which restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress widgets settings screens.
This page describes a Legacy Widget. With the Block Widgets Editor, we recommend to use the corresponding Product Filter – Tags block instead. See the Blocks page for an overview of all available blocks with the extension.
The Product Filter – Tags widget that is part of the WooCommerce Product Search extension provides a live product tag filter for your shop. While your customers choose the desired tag, it finds matching products and shows them on the shop page. This live filter displays product tags. It allows the customer to click a tag and updates the shop page to show products that are related to it. The following settings are provided to fine-tune the appearance and behavior of the widget.

  • The Title field allows you to set the title of the widget. We recommend to leave it empty and have the widget display its heading automatically instead. The heading will be hidden when there are no matching tags to display and it will be shown when there are any. If you use the title, this is not the case.
