Creating a filter

Filters can be produced manually or dynamically and are made up of a JSON array containing rows with a label key (string) and a filter key (string or valid JSON). If the filter contains a string then it will pass that value to the search parameter on the element search. If you pass JSON to the filter than you can create multiple query parameters.

Configuration

You have two ways to setup filters. Manually or dynamically.

Using Twig (Recommended)

You can use the power of twig templating to create your filters. For example, if you want a filter entries by authors, then you can use the following...

{% for user in craft.users.all() %}
    {{ ({
        filter: {
            authorId: user.id
        },
        label: user.fullName
    })|json_encode() }}{{ not loop.last ? ',' }}
{% endfor %}

This essentially creates an element query like so...

{{ craft.entries.authorId(user.id).all() }}

Using JSON

Create a valid JSON array to build a filter

{ "filter":"page 1", "label":"Page 1" },
{ "filter":"page 2", "label":"Page 2" },
{ "filter":"page 3", "label":"Page 3" },
{ "filter":"page 4", "label":"Page 4" }

As the filter value is passing a string, this is essentially creating an element query like so...

{{ craft.entries.search('page 1').all() }}

As an include

If you prefer to keep your code in your templates/repo, then you can link directly to templates.

{% include '_includes/filters/rooms' ignore missing %}

Example usage

Here are a few examples of different filters for different elements. The possibilities are endless!

Entries

Create filters for authors, date, categories, etc..

Example: Filter by author...

Entries

How to get this filter...

{% for user in craft.users.all() %}
    {{ ({
        filter: {
            authorId: user.id
        },
        label: user.fullName
    })|json_encode() }}{{ not loop.last ? ',' }}
{% endfor %}

Categories

Create filters to narrow down categories by heirarchy.

Example: Filter by top level category...

Categories

How to get this filter...

{% for category in craft.categories.group(‘alcoholicDrinks’).level(1).all() %}
   {{ ({
       filter: {
           descendantOf: category.id
       },
       label: category.title
   })|json_encode() }}{{ not loop.last ? ‘,’ }}
{% endfor %}

Craft CMS Search Documentation Docs

As with the regular Craft Search, if you suspect that your search indexes don’t have the latest and greatest data, you can have Craft rebuild them with the Rebuild Search Indexes tool in Settings. Docs
