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.

Add auto-generated H1 tags for cats & filters

add dynamically created titles and h1s for brand filter the same way like Eric Busch from datafeedr did it on geargrabber.net?

View the code on Gist:

https://gist.github.com/EricBusch/b30e411a2442ab94a37c97235fecd80e.js?file=geargrabber-php-L134

e.g. https://www.geargrabber.net/category/mens-clothing/?filter_brand=carhartt

Another great option would be adding brand seo description on the main shop page when you click brand filter: shop/brand/paul-smith

Zalando does it this way.

Add attribute auto-suggest and auto-complete option

Sometimes you have far too many attributes to put them in a list or even a dropdown.

In those cases, providing a list of 10 with a text-box above to type into would make things quicker for users of that site.

Users would type in the text box and the list below will automatically update based on the search query. The user can then click on any of the items.

It would also auto-complete to the most likely search result (the top 1 from the list) and if the user hits enter it would be the same as clicking that top result.

Add friendly URLs to FWW

Add friendly URLs for attributes. Can use URL rewrites to implement this and when option is selected, send users to full friendly URL.

  1. Add URL rewrites to rewrite from slug of attribute to parameterised search.
  2. Add option to backend admin screen to enable friendly URLs
  3. URL structure needs to be unique – e.g. /product-category/clothing/brand/paul-smith/. If 2 or more attribute filters (brands) are selectable, some identifier is required e.g /product-category/clothing/f/brand/paul-smith/guess/ – otherwise there could theoretically be a brand called ‘brand’ which would break things.
  4. Ensure canonical URL points to the friendly URL
  5. Add friendly URL output into widget links

Allow control of brackets in product counts

A customer has requested to be able to eliminate the brackets before and after the product counts.

I would implement this using CSS – i.e. I’ll remove the ( and ) from the HTML and instead add the ( and ) using :before and :after CSS which then would give the ability to eliminate these brackets completely and/or style them at will.

Accordion Categories & Attributes; Assign Attributes to Categories

Part 1 – Accordion Categories and Attributes Request:
The option to have a tidy accordion view that will expand categories and attribute lists on click.

Benefit: This will greatly improve the user experience and visuals of the filter, adding more value to the plugin

Pain-point: Currently, for large stores, several attributes are needed to aid in filtering. This makes for a long list of attributes that look messy

Ideal business requirements:
-Put title inside the accordion box.
-On-click box expands to reveal child list of categories and list of attributes.

—————————–
Part 2 – Assign Attributes to categories
The option to assign attributes to appear in the sidebar filter only for specific categories.

Benefit: Same as above AND,
Prevent the shop page from having too long of a list of attributes, allowing the site to have more targeted advanced filtering in sub-sections of the site.

Pain-point: Same as above

Idea business requirements:
-Add to attribute settings: Label:
“Assign attribute to specific categories”
-Checkbox for Select parent categories: Ajax text field that searches categories and allows the user to select one or many parent categories. Attribute will show in all parent and child categories.
-Select specific categories:
Attribute will only show the specific categories selected.
Assign priority number: Assign what position the attribute filter will appear in the sidebar

Use-case: If I have a hardware store that sells across multiple departments I wouldn’t want to have detailed filters about BBQs on the main shop page. Currently, out-of-the-box woocommerce filters force you to have all or nothing. So the hardware store would have to have ALL attributes on the main shop page in order for them to show up in the BBQ section.
For the BBQ section, I may want the position for the BBQ filters to show in a higher position in the filters list, enabling easy search by BTU’s, fuel type, grill size etc.

Having the combination of accordion and assigning attributes to categories would enable a professional looking filter, making your plugin a great alternative to heavy filter plugins.

Thank you for your consideration
