FacetWP is an advanced filtering and search plugin that allows you to create faceted search and filter options. The plugin is written by Matt Gibbs and is down right stellar. I gave it a quick run for this review and was very pleased with what I found.

In Matt’s own words:

Facets are interactive elements for filtering lists of content.
You’ve seen facets on sites like Amazon and eBay. Use FacetWP to improve eCommerce sites, staff directories, resource libraries, search pages and a whole lot more!

To get a real idea of just how powerful FacetWP is, take a look at Matt’s live demo.

You can see a live example of how I and some co-developers implemented FacetWP very effectively on CGCookie.com.

    Awesome. I guess it can be used with WooCommerce, since products are just a custom post type, right?

    • Pippin

      Yep, definitely!

    I used Faceted search, could not get it to work, followed the trouble shooting steps on their web site and it still would not work. I contacted them for a refund and they would not do a refund as they said I did not contact them for support. I would be very reluctant to use this plugin based on my experience with them.

    • Pippin

      I’m sorry to hear you had a bad experience! That’s the opposite of every experience I’ve heard of with FacetWP and definitely does not mimic my own experience. I’ve only ever had great experiences working with Matt Gibbs.

    I have a problem with facet. When I set the plugin he removed pagination. How to do so that I can change my product pages on the site because by clicking on page two or three nothing happens.
    Please help me. I try this for quite some time but I’m at an impasse.

    • Pippin

      Please contact the FacetWP support team directly for assistance.

    Hi Pippin, in the video you first select the Aston Martins, and then, when you change the price range, there are a Bentley and Mercedes coming up (at 2:11 min).

    Something wrong?
