Hi, Is it possible to appear product filter in child category?

For example if I had a category STATIONERY and sub-categories PENS, PENCILS, ERASERS, SHARPENER etc.

The filter is working in STATIONERY but when I check PENS it disappeared. I would like the system keep all the child-categories, so the user be able to navigate.

Thank you.


 On the category page, the filter shows only child categories.  This is a very logical behavior. On the category page, you can show ONLY products that belong to the category OR child category. It makes sense to show only child categories( of the current category ), because clicking on any other category will always give zero products   )

Yes, I understand that. But you said "you can show ONLY products that belong to the category OR child category" so how could I show only products that belong to the category and not child category?


but this is already native wordpress functionality.

Archive pages will show all products(posts) of the current and child categories

And it doesn't depend on our plugin

Ok it works fine when I click on a parent category. It gives me all the sub-categories and when I choose a sub-category from the filter, the others subcategories does not disappeared. Check this

Here is sub-category "Μελάνια" but on left sidebar sub-categories "Ανταλλακτικά Ταμπον" and "Ταμπον" does not disappeared whatever my choice is of these three.  But if I click the same "Μελάνια" from navigation bar nothing of these three are disappeared.


Yes, this is correct behavior!  There is a difference between filtering and navigating to category pages

But I didn't understand your question
