Make FWW compatible with search page

Guest shared this feature

March 8, 2019

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:

and then filter by color:

but it should be:

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.

    Ok – I’ll try and get this into this release.

    It’s half compatible right now:

    Above will search the dogs category for ‘bowl’.

    The parts not yet compatible are:

    1. The category counts should reflect the search query
    2. The search query should be passed forward with any extra filters clicked
    3. It should automatically work with super speedy search
