JetSmartFilters: Active Tags widget overview

This tutorial will show you how to use the Active Tags widget easily.

With the help of the Active Tags widget from the JetSmartFilters plugin, you’ll be able to display the filters you’ve already chosen and then disable one of the filters or several of them without removing all filters. This is really awesome, in case the customer will need to remove only one filter option without losing other filtered results.

1 Step — Active Tags widget settings

First of all, you ’ll need the content you’ll filter and several other filters on your page to use Active Tags widget. For example, we’ll filter products in the Products Grid widget.
Then, drag-n-drop the Active Tags widget to the needed section and apply it to the Products Grid.
This widget is very similar to the Active Filters widget. Here you can choose the AJAX or Page reload apply type, add the Label and enable Clear Item option.

Also, you can set the unique Query ID if you use multiple widgets of the same provider
