Filtering is a great way to show off your posts or custom post types while being able to filter by category, term or tag. Posts are displayed nicely in a grid with featured image, post title and/or excerpt. David DeSandro’s jQuery Isotope does the filtering of your categories, terms or tags.
Filter your posts or custom post types. Filtering works with posts but also your custom post types.
Filter by categories, tags or custom taxonomy terms. Filter your posts by category, tag or term making it easy for you site visitors to find what they are looking for.
Use on your Blog or Custom Post Type Archive Page Replace your post loop on your Blog and Custom Post Type Archive Page with Filtering.
Use on Pages Too You can setup Filtering on Pages too. Create one page to filter posts by category and another page to filter by tag.
Exclude or include categories, terms or tags. By default Filtering displays posts from all categories, terms or tags. You can create a list of categories, terms or tags to exclude or if your list is short, to include for filtering.
Child category and term control. Filtering shows child categories/terms by default. You can choose to hide child categories/terms and only show parent categories/terms.
Show Featured Image, Post Title and/or Post Excerpt. Options let you
show your featured image with post title
featured image only
featured image, post title and post excerpt
or just the post title and excerpt.
Set width of item. You can control the overall width of the item or let it work with the default setting of 250px.
Option to add a default image. Set a default image for posts that don’t have a featured image. Upload or choose one from the media library.
Use your thumbnail size for images or set a maximum width and height. Filtering uses the thumbnail size set in WordPress options to display images by default. Options let you set a maximum width and height for images if you want to use a different size.
Pagination option included The beauty of filtering is that it takes a lot of posts and makes it easy to find by category/term/tag decreasing the amount of posts to sort through. However, you may want to add pagination. If so, Filtering has a pagination option.
