Filter with custom query?
I don't seem to get brand filter and price filter to work when i use custom query, any solution?

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?

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?

Custom query: compset_status=2

I want to filter my frontpage and category page :)

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="[]?compset_status=2" title="[]">[]</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.
