Active Tags Overview

Learn how to manage settings of the JetSmartFilters plugin’s Active Tags widget/block/element for Elementor/Block Editor/Bricks theme to display the already chosen filters and allow users to disable one of the filters or several of them without removing all filters.

The functionality is implemented directly via the JetSmartFilter’s Active Tags widget/block/element without additional settings in the WordPress Dashboard.

  • Apply type 一 a drop-down menu, allowing the choice of which filter type is preferable for this widget: the “AJAX” (filtering using the AJAX method without reloading the page, enhancing the filtering speed for visitors), “Page Reload,” (reloads the page each time the visitor applies the filter) or “Mixed”;
  • Label 一 a text field for typing the label for the tag list;
  • Clear item — a toggle, which, if enabled, adds the “Clear” link allowing deactivation of all applied filters;
  • Query ID — a field for selecting a query, which displays some widgets of the same type on the page;
  • Additional Providers Enabled — a toggle that turns on the Additional Providers List option to apply several widgets to the Active Tags. Read more about this option in the Additional Providers List Option Overview. You can also check the How to Apply Filters to Several Widgets on a Page tutorial.
