My directory is region-centric and I’m allowing users to pick a state first via a menu and then I show them to the listings for that region
For example if you pick “Texas” from the menu I send you to “business-directory/wpbdm-region/texas/”
When I click on “Find Listings” or “Advanced Search” in the context of “business-directory/wpbdm-region/texas/” I would expect that the Region would be set to “Texas” by default in the search pages that come up. But both of those pages come up with no region set. I don’t want my users to have to know that they need to select “Texas” again on the “Find Listings” and “Advanced Search” pages.
Is it possible to have those pages come up already constrained to the current region?
I completely understand your use case however, what you’re asking for is not something we support right now. This is because the regions filter and quick/advanced search functions work independently in the directory right now. This is something we can consider adding in the future but right now, we do not have a way to make both work hand in hand.
Thanks for your input on this!
Unfortunately, the search behavior would remain the same as I described above whether you use regions or categories. Although it might not be a quick or easy change, my best suggestion is to try and hack the core plugin directly if you wish to modify the search routine in such manner. If you need help, there are a few great resources to help you out here.
- Tilden Tasks: They will also do longer WordPress tasks, but they break it down to 1 task per day.
- Codeable, which has WordPress expert developers available for short-term projects: https://codeable.io
- The last option would be hiring a developer on Upwork (formerly known as oDesk) to help out if you think this is beyond your current skill set. http://upwork.com There’s a lot of decent folks on there as well.
