Supported elements

The following Bricks elements are supported:

Usage: “Posts” element

    After creating some facets, paste their shortcode(s) into a Shortcode element.

Usage: “Query Loop” feature

  1. Within Bricks, create a new Div element. This will be the wrapper element that FacetWP needs to auto-detect the listing.
  2. Next, add a Container, Block, or Div element (this will be our Query Loop).
  3. Bricks - toggle the Use query loop and Use FacetWP checkboxes
    Toggle the Use query loop and Use FacetWP checkboxes.

    Within this element, toggle the Use query loop checkbox, then toggle the Use FacetWP checkbox after it appears. Adjust the Query as needed by clicking the “∞” icon.

  4. Bricks - add a Heading element
    Add a Heading element to your page.

    To add some example dynamic data, add a new Heading element and set its content to {post_title}.

  5. Bricks - nest the elements in the Structure area
    Nest the elements in the Structure area.

    Finally, in the Structure area (right sidebar), nest the elements so that it looks like Div > Query Loop > Heading.

    Note: “Query Loop” is the element from step 2.

Usage: “Products” element

Bricks - add a Products element to your page
Add a Products element to your page.

If you are using Bricks with WooCommerce, it’s also possible to use Bricks’ “Products” element, by setting the "facetwp" => true query argument with Bricks’ own “bricks/posts/query_vars” filter.

Bricks - find your Products element's ID
Find the Products element’s ID.

This filter can also be used to customize other query arguments. It works for Posts, Products, and Query Loop elements.

Add the following code to your Bricks child theme’s functions.php, and change the value of $element_id to your “Products” element’s unique ID.

This element ID consists of a string of random characters that can be found in the field above the element’s settings, where it is preceded with #brxe-.

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

add_filter( 'bricks/posts/query_vars', function( $query_vars, $settings, $element_id ) { if ( $element_id === 'yjqekk' ) { // change value to your Products element's unique element ID $query_vars['facetwp'] = true; } return $query_vars; }, 10, 3 );
