The Reset facet type – added in FacetWP v4.0 – adds a reset button or link.

Depending on the settings, the button or link resets all facets or a selection only.

You can set the button or link to automatically hide when no facets have selected values.


Go to the Facets tab, click “add new”, choose “Reset” as Facet type, set its options, and place it on your page with a shortcode.

Available options

Name Description
Reset UI Should the facet show as a button or a link.
Reset text The text of the button or link. Note: this text is translatable with the facetwp_i18n hook.
Include / exclude Include or exclude certain facets:

  • Reset everything – Reset all facets.
  • Reset only these facets – Reset only the selected facets (multiple select).
  • Reset all except these facets – Reset all facets except the selected facets (multiple select).
Auto-hide Automatically hide the reset button or link when no facets have selected values.

The facetwp/reset hook

The facetwp/reset hook fires when a reset button/link is clicked. It could be used to select a specific facet choice after a reset, for example because a facet choice was pre-selected on page load:

How to use custom PHP code?

PHP code can be added to your (child) theme's functions.php file. Alternatively, you can use the Custom Hooks add-on, or a code snippets plugin. More info

// Replace "my_facet_name" with your facet name, and "my_facet_name" with the facet choice add_action( 'wp_footer', function() { ?> <script> (function($) { if ('object' !== typeof FWP) { return; } $(function() { FWP.hooks.addAction('facetwp/reset', function() { FWP.facets['my_facet_name'] = ['my_facet_choice']; }); }); })(jQuery) </script> <?php }, 100 );

Reset facets programmatically

Besides using a Reset facet, it is also possible to reset all, or specific facets and/or individual facet choices programmatically with the FWP.reset() function.

Or you can reset facets by setting FWP.facets['my_facet_name'] = []; within the facetwp-refresh event, if needed conditionally, based on other facet selections.
