What To Buy: Filter By Brand

Question

We need to filter our locations by brand.  Does your plugin or an extension to your plugin have this feature?

Assigning Brands To Locations

Power is the right choice for doing that. The Power add-on allows for simple categories or complex parent/child relationships between categories. Locations can be assigned to one or more categories. Your users can then search for locations based on those categories.

Add a category for each brand you offer and your users will be able to filter locations showing only those that offer specific brands.

Store Locator Plus Discrete Searches

The Experience provides a “search by city”, “search by state”, and “search by country” feature.   This search form element, when enabled, will build a drop down list based on the locations in your database.   This is meant to provide a hint to the user where your locations are.

The legacy system was a simple “address input” feature.   When a user selected an entry from the drop down list it types the text into the address box.  When the user clicks the search button it looks for locations closest to that location based on your other search form settings.   If your default radius is 100 miles and the user selects the state of Texas, this system will search for all locations within 100 miles of Google’s estimated “center of Texas”.
