Hi,

Filters can't work with custom queries. When using a custom query, the query string is ignored.

Okey, so there is no smart solution to filter brands and price if u have custom query? Hmm.. do you think it would be smart to drip all the products and then sort them by tags in wordpress?

Hi,

That would involve a lot of extra work.

What is your custom query in this case?

And what page (front page, category page, other) are you trying to filter?

Hi,

If you really need the functionality, you could try hardcoding the links to your front page and category pages to have ?compset_status=2 in the URLs.

For example, your Categories widget links could look something like this:

HTML Code:
<a href="[category.link]?compset_status=2" title="[category.name]">[category.name]</a>
That way whenever someone clicks a category link, it will automatically show the "master" product from your comparison sets. Then pagination will work. And also your filters should work.
