Different types of filters can be defined in a filter. This includes the filter type Cards.

Under the tab Cards you can define all settings for the individual cards.

  • Card Type: With the Card Type you have the choice between checkbox and radio.

    • Narrow: The selection of several cards is linked with AND.
    • Widen: The selection of several cards is linked with OR.

Card objects

Each Card Object corresponds to a selection in the frontend.

  • Image: The image/icon that is displayed in the card.
  • Label: The label of the card.
  • Card ID: This is a unique identifier of the card, which you can use in WP filters and control the selection. This value must not be changed.
  • Conditions: Here you set what should be filtered when your visitor selects this card in the frontend.

Conditions

Conditions are rules that are derived from the selection of your visitors to filter your posts.

  • Facet: Select the facet you want to use for filtering.
  • Rule: Select here how the facet should be compared.
  • Behavior: Here you can set how the selection should behave.
    • Narrow: The selected values (see next point) are linked with AND.
    • Widen: The selected values (see next point) are linked with OR.
  • Values: Here you can enter one or more values, which must be true by the rule.

Examples of conditions

  • “If the card with the designation Large Screen is selected, then see with which posts the screen size ( Facet ) is larger ( rule ) than 50 inch ( Values ).”
  • “If the card with the label “Good Camera” is selected, check which posts have a camera rating ( Facet ) greater ( rule ) than 90 points ( Values ).”
