FAQ Q194: Can I filter out resources displayed in the resource list page or change their ordering?
Yes, you can do both.
To filter out resources, use the res_filter_name
parameters in the plugin parameters (attribute string)
. This will only display resources having a custom property with the name defined by res_filter_name and value defined by res_filter_value (custom properties can be added to all resources in site settings / custom resource properties
, then you need to edit each resource to set the custom property values).
Please note that res_filter_name must be in the form: prop_res_xxx (all lower case, spaces replaced by underscores and with the prop_res_ prefix), e.g for the property "Number of persons", this should be e.g.: &res_filter_name=prop_res_number_of_persons&res_filter_value=3
You can try the example below. It will only list accommodations for 2 persons max:
Another way you can list only specific resources, is listing them by their IDs. To do this, add the ppp_resfilter
parameter to the plugin's attribute string
or to the URL, e.g.: the following attribute string: mode=resource_list&ppp_resfilter=1,2,3
will list the resources with IDs equal to 1, 2 and 3.
To change the default ordering, go to Site settings
and under the resource listing click on the button Reorder
. This lets you change the default ordering of resources in all lists and previews. If you need the resources to be sorted according to a different criterium in one of your listings, you can also use the sort
parameter in the plugin parameters (attribute string)
. As in case of filters, this will be in form sort=prop_res_XXX
