Overview

FacetWP Radio facetThe radio facet type generates a single-select list of choices.

Available options

Name Description
Data source Where the values live (taxonomy, custom field, post attribute)
Default label Set a label to include an “Any” choice above other radio buttons, or leave blank. Note: this label is translatable with the facetwp_i18n hook.
Parent term If Data Source is a hierarchical taxonomy and you want to display only child terms, enter the parent term’s ID.
Value modifiers Enter a list of values (one per line) to include or exclude from the facet’s choices. The values need to match the label of the value exactly, including spaces and capitalization. If they don’t work, see this page for more info.
Show ghosts Ghosts are facet choices that, if clicked, would return zero results
Preserve ghost order Should ghosts be kept in the same order (mixed with valid choices)?
Sort by Sort facet choices by:

  • Highest count – sorts by the total number of results with that value.
  • Display value – sorts alphabetically according to the label you see on the facet choices.
  • Raw value – sorts by the value that tracks the facet choices. For example in a dropdown, this is the option value rather than the option label. You can see the raw values in the url after making facet selections.
  • Term order – sorts by taxonomy term order. This option uses term_order which is only available when using a plugin that sets an explicit order for taxonomy terms. FacetWP supports:
Count The number of options to display

What are ghosts?

Ghosts are facet choices that do appear in the unfiltered results — but disappear after being filtered out. If a facet choice has no associated content, then it will never appear.

What are value modifiers?

Value modifiers let you include or exclude certain choices from displaying. This setting requires a re-index to take effect. Below are some examples.

The values you enter in a facet’s “Value modifiers” field need to match the label of the value exactly, including spaces and capitalization. If they don’t work, see this page for more info.

Hide counts

To hide the counts for all facets of type Radio, Checkboxes, Hierarchy, and Range List (in UI modes “None”, “Radio” or “Checkboxes”), add this CSS into your theme’s style.css:

.facetwp-counter {
    display: none;
}

If you need to be specific about which (type of) facet to hide the counts for, use any of the following styles:

/* Hide counts in all facets with a radio UI (Radio facet, Range List facet in UI modes "None" or "Radio" */
.facetwp-radio .facetwp-counter {
    display: none;
}

/* Hide counts in all Radio facets */
[data-type="radio"] .facetwp-counter {
    display: none;
}

/* Hide counts in a specific Radio facet */
.facetwp-facet-yourfacetname .facetwp-counter {
    display: none;
}
