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

Hi – I’m going to add this accordion option to the next release of faster woo widgets since visual changes like this are really trivial.
