    1. Hi! With our plugin you have the option to decide in which pages you want to show the filters preset. By using the widget, the shortcode or the Gutenberg blocks you can determine where to display the filters and which preset to show for each page. However, in order to properly assist you, if you are already using the plugin you can reach our developers directly through one of the following channels. For the premium version please submit a ticket ; or open a new topic thread for the free version Best regards!

    1. Hi, Fiaz! 😃 Thank you so much for your feedback, we’re happy to learn our video tutorials are helping users find the right plugin! Stay tuned! 😉

    1. Hi, Marek! 😃 If you’re referring to the “order by” filter that offers “default sorting” you can create it as explained on this documentation page:
      If you’re referring to the products sorting on the “Man new category” page that was created at 06:33, you can set it by selecting the Products by Category block, and then going over to the Block menu to the right and scrolling down to Order by. If you’re referring to the order of the terms inside each filter, it should be arranged through the Order by option inside each filter. Keep in mind the plugin options mentioned are only available in the premium version. If this is not what you were referring to or you have further questions, feel free to contact us: Stay tuned! 😉

    1. Hi Reefat! After you have created a specific filter preset, you can add it to any of your sidebars through the widget ‘YITH AJAX Filters preset’.

  4. How can you remove the hover text appearing next to the category text? It’s very annoying and doesn’t look good.

    1. Hi Mustafa! Yes, the option to include a tooltip that would appear when hovering is optional. When you are creating the filters, in the section to customize the terms you can decide whether to include or not the tooltip. You can find more information about customizing the terms here For any further assistance, please feel free to contact us at Best regards!

    1. Hello Samuel! Please note that in general, we record all our tutorials using our free theme Proteo. In this case, the specific feature to associate sidebars to the categories depends on the theme you are using. If this option is not possible, the alternative would be to create new custom pages. However, if you are already using the plugin and require further assistance, you can always reach out to our developers through one of the following channels: for the premium version, you can submit a support ticket here; for the free version, you can open a new thread in our forum Best regards!
