If you are filtering the Listing Grid, then, probably, you should choose the “JetEngine” option. And if you are sorting the products, then WooCommerce related options will do. You can also apply one filter to several widgets with different providers. In this case, the Additional Providers Enabled toggle will come in handy;
- Apply type is the way the widget will be applied to the items. AJAX option will make the page return to the default state without reloading. And Page reload option, as it is obvious from the title, will reload the page after the user clicks the “Remove filters” button;
- If you want some other text to be shown on the button, you can change it in the Remove button text bar;
