How to Apply Filters to Several Widgets on a Page

This tutorial gives detailed information on creating a new filter and applying it to different widgets using the JetSmartFilters plugin.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to apply one filter to multiple widgets on a page at the same time using the Additional Provider setting in JetSmartFilters.


This setup works only when the posts displayed via two widgets on one page (i.e., Listing Grid and Map Listings) belong to one Custom Post Type.

Adding Widgets to the Page

Open the needed page in the Elementor Page Builder. Add three columns in Elementor and drag and drop the following widgets into the following columns: first column —  filters, second сolumn — Listing Grid widget, third column — Map Listing:
