    Hi,

    I’m not sure if this can be achieved – I am building a car part shop and am trying to find a way to filter data according car brands and models that are applicable to a given part.

    For example, a certain type of oil can be used in a Mercedes A Class Year something and by a BMW M3. Something like that. Do you have a suggestion to achieve this with filters on the template and woocommerce?

    Hi,

    I think you need this plugin to be able to do that.

    Hi,

    That’s only for searching data already in records. My question is more related to how to give a product attributes like I described – i.e. dependant.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I’m sorry but I’m not sure if this is what you need. Maybe you can use the Product Attributes for Variable Products. Go to Product > Attributes, create a new attribute, name it Oil for example. Under Oil you can configure more terms. Now edit a certain product, select Variable product under Product Data. You can give infinite variations for each product. Please refer to this link. http://docs.woothemes.com/document/product-variations/.

    Let me tag the rest of the support team to give us more ideas.

    Hi,

    You can use the portfolio. Each portfolio item would be the part, and portfolio category would be the Specific Car Type. – 2010 Toyota Corolla LTD (or something).

    There is also a plugin that allows a one to many relationships, where one child can have multiple parents. So if a child page is Super Oil 2300, you add bmw and mercedes as its parents.

    However all these scenarios will require you to play with the code, so if you aren’t comfortable with html, css, php,javascript, wordpress syntax, jquery, sql, ajax, etc… I would consider a freelance developer. Because you also aren’t looking just to show this information, right? You want the end user to do something once they find that Super oil 2300 (add to shopping cart, etc) So there will be some integration involved.

    You can also take a look at the Types and Views plugins, but again this is something that is not gonna be something easy without a learning curve and understanding of the insides of WordPress etc…

    Thanks,

    Nick
