Make FWW work with Woo Brands plugin

The Woo Brands plugin is popular because of the brand landing pages it provides. BUT, it handles brands in a weird way. Regardless, customers want compatibility, so I’ll implement it.

Should hopefully be able to just make it compatible, but *may* have to create a new widget to replace their widget. I already know the way they’ve coded it is very slow, so probably it’ll need a new replacement widget.

Make FWW compatible with search page

FWW widget output urls should remember a search query. Currently if you search for something and then try to filter the results with the widgets they remove a search query from the url.

e.g. you are searching for a bowl:
https://foundthru.com/?s=bowl&post_type=product

and then filter by color:
https://foundthru.com/filter/red/

but it should be:
https://foundthru.com/filter/red/?s=bowl
or
https://foundthru.com/filter/red/q-bowl
or
https://foundthru.com/search/red/q-bowl

Maybe it would be good if a search query appears in Existing Filters widget, so users can remove it and easily return to the archive pages – it would be great for UX reasons! Or even get popular search queries indexed by google? Let me know what you think.

FWW Sitemap – bulk generation of all available urls

In order to get as many pages of our store as possible available in the search result, we should be able to generate a number of pages with clean URL.

The plugin should automatically create a list of all possible combinations of the URLs with checkboxes near each, so we can easily exclude some of them (and option to select all) and then add the selected ones to the Sitemap, which is generated by the Yoast SEO plugin.

What should be respected:
1. Permalink ordering settings.
2. Multiple selection option (don’t add URLs with multiple selections within one attribute).
3. Don’t add non-indexable URLs to the Sitemap as this forces search engines to crawl and process these URLs. This is an unnecessary usage of crawl budget and should be avoided.

Maybe it should be connected with: https://www.wpintense.com/suggestions/seo-text-based-on-filters/, so we can add the description (seo text) below the generated URL?

Thank you.

Filter by brands – Perfect WooCommerce Brands

I’d love to have the option to add a filter by brand (with SEO-friendly URLs). At this moment, this is possible if we’re using an attribute as Brand.

The archive pages for attributes are not very customizable, thus I’d like to use an add-on for brands. I prefer Perfect WooCommerce Brands, but I’d be happy with compatibility with any of the following plugins:
1) Perfect WooCommerce Brands – https://wordpress.org/plugins/perfect-woocommerce-brands/
2) WooCommerce Brands – https://woocommerce.com/products/brands/
3)YITH WooCommerce Brands Add-on – https://yithemes.com/themes/plugins/yith-woocommerce-brands-add-on/

Add support for plugins that remove the ‘product-category’ base

Plugins that have the feature to remove ‘the product-category’ base from URLs are not currently compatible with the Fast Layered Category Widget and Fast Attribute Widget.

The 3 plugins I have tested are Permalink Manager Pro (I will send you the .zip file and license), SEO for WooCommerce by RankMath (free on WP.org), and Premmerce Permalink Manager (free on WP.org).

To replicate this issue, create a product category called “Shoes” and one attribute, brand, with the term “Nike”. Make sure to have at least 1 product that has this category and attribute.

In the sidebar of the shop page, add the FWW Fast Layered Category Widget and Fast Attribute Widget.

Go to the Shop Page and activate the “Shoes” filter for the product category . You will get an URL like this:
– /product-category/shoes/
Now activate the “Nike” filter as the product Brand (which is an attribute). You will get an URL like this:
– /product-category/shoes/nike/

Next, use any of the 3 plugins mentioned above to remove the product-category base.

Go to the Shop Page and activate the “Shoes” filter for the product category . You will get an URL like this:
– /shoes/ – this works as expected
Now activate the “Nike” filter as the product Brand (which is an attribute). You will get an URL like this:
– /shoes/nike/ – this shows 0 results (when there should be at least 1 product)

If you manually type in your browser address /product-category/shoes/nike/, then it will only show the expected results.

Please let me know if anything is unclear or if you need any help from my end.
