The whole reason Dave Hilditch made WP Intense was to create plugins that make WordPress fast, regardless of how large you grow.
Optimised SQL Tables
Super Speedy Filters creates a table called object_ancestors which allows us to very quickly map out the hierarchies of your taxonomies.
Optimised SQL Queries
Hand-crafted to ensure you get the maximum speed from your server when generating your filter lists + item counts.
Proper use of Object Cache
The way we use the object cache allows filters to be re-used across multiple pages, reducing your server load even further and bringing more speed the more your site gets used!
Ajax pagination inside filters
Some of our users have 100,000+ items in one single taxonomy. For example, a Greek user has a Book Author taxonomy. Showing all 100,000 items on a single page does not make sense, so in addition to full-page ajax, we also have ‘inline ajax’ inside the filters so only the first 20 items are shown and then more are fetched if the users scroll the filter scrollbar.
Why choose Super Speedy Filters?
All competitor widgets that we have tested suffer the same problem – they have poorly designed code that either performs 1000s of queries per page (you can check yours with query monitor) or performs fast but large queries that then take seconds or even minutes to process in PHP. On our demo 1,000,000 product store our competition take over a minute to generate the filters on the archive page while Super Speedy Filters takes under a second!
The difference in WordPress and WooCommerce speed and scalability once you eliminate bad code is phenomenal.
We develop and test against a 1,000,000 product store and have superusers who help us test beta releases so you can rest assured that speed and scalability of your shop filters will never be an issue again!

Best effing Woo filter on the planet. Period.
All other filters turn to DB to get terms and stock levels. This is fine with small sites.
18k products. Sort by brand? Dynamically populated filters based on category contents? YITH, Themify etc – you know that it adds around 9 seconds to page load. Hell no. With SSF i can barely notice speed difference but filters work like they suppose to.
Dave H. –
Thank you so much for your review! Just one clarification for others, we also read from the DB for the terms and stock levels, but I write the queries myself to be ultra fast and SSF has it’s own highly optimised object relationships table which is far superior to the default ones provided with WordPress.
For example, if you have a term which contains 20 other terms – e.g. different types of clothing inside the clothing category, default WordPress/WooCommerce will grab all the child terms of the clothing category and then perform a SQL statement like this: WHERE term_id in (1, 2, 3, 4, ….) IN statements in SQL are terrible and prevent further use of indexes. My table lets you say WHERE topterm_id = 1 and this naturally includes the children. I’ll write up a full info article on this soon.
Also – if you have a look at the defines.php file, you’ll find some BETA level performance optimisations if you’re looking for EVEN MORE speed boost. Really! These beta options need to be added by adding the define to your wp-config.php file currently, but soon they will be in your options page.

We were looking for a filter plug-in that was compatible with our shops with 30-70 thousand products. Until then, no other filter was able to process such quantities satisfactorily and fulfil our wishes. Due to our good experiences with wpintense (Scalability Pro), we took Dave at his word and installed the plugin. Particularly noteworthy are Dave’s tireless improvements and first-class support. Almost all wishes are answered immediately and a solution is sought and found. The filter plugin is also therefore able to filter extensive shops extremely quickly and reliably. We are thrilled with the performance of the filter and the wpintense team! Of course we will now buy the “lifetime” licence.

It’s nice to look at the website after turning on this plugin, instant filtration of products even on pages with a huge amount of them. The plugin gives conditional display of filters, e.g. if we want a filter to be visible in a given place only, i.e. after selecting a category or taxonomy field, it will appear only when we select any category, which products are assigned to this category and there is at least one assigned to this product attribute . In addition, you can change the SLUG quickly, i.e. the link does not have to be the same as the filter name, we can choose another. It’s worth using. I spent a lot of time finding this plug and testing others in the market. I am currently stating that it is the # 1 plugin for filtering products on WooCommerce among the others. The top ones are often limited to e.g. 100,000 products, but filtering is also slower than this FWW plugin.

the plugin is great, very fast and highly customisable. Would be great if it was compatible with Yith Brands Add-on. We have many brand pages and would like to use filters on brand pages as well, such as filter by categories and attributes, which is very important for a e-commerce site.
Dave H. –
I am pleased to confirm that a new Custom Taxonomy widget was added in beta 2.34 to add compatibility for Yith Brands, Woo Brands etc. Many improvements made to Faster Woo Widgets since then too – complete control over your custom taxonomy URLs etc.

Hey Dave, this works quite well on soundorabilia.com.
I have a slight issue though:
Invalid argument supplied for foreach()
On that location:

Please visit the settings page and configure how you wish your permalinks to display and this warning should disappear.
Kevin G. –
Bringing errors and no support
Dave H. –
When you first install this version, visit the settings page and hit save. It’s a known issue in the current version, fixed in the upcoming beta release.
