Faceted Search Wordpress Plugin

Download it here

 

This plugin creates two widgets:

 

1. A widget where you can choose from all the categories in your blog.

This is similar to what newegg.com uses, where you can select multiple categories, and it will only show posts belonging to all the categories you select, and such categories can be narrowed down by selecting their subcategories.

 

2. A widget where you can choose from all the tags in your blog

You can select the tags you want to search for, and it will only show posts that have all of the tags you selected.

 

See the demo site to try it out

 

 

Standard Install Procedure:
 
1. Upload `faceted-search.zip` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory and unzip it
2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
3. Place either 'Faceted Search Category Widget' or 'Faceted Search Tag Widget' wherever you want on your site
 
Styling the widget:
Once the plugin's installed, just edit the faceted-search.css file that's in the faceted-search folder to style the lists of categories and tags.
 
How to use:
A good example of a faceted search is the directory newegg.com uses.  Basically, you can select a couple categories (or tags if your using the tag widget), do the search, and the search will yield only articles that belong to all the selected categories (or selected tags).  It's a good way to narrow down searches.
