This is a quick instruction on how you can filter anything you want in Elementor.
It shows you how you can create a:
- Filterable portfolio with own modules
- Filterable video gallery
- Filterable gallery
- How you can filter every Elementor element.
1. Download the plugin
The first step is to download the free Elementor Filter plugin here: Download
2. Upload and activate the plugin
In your WordPress dashboard, you click on Plugins → Add New → Upload Plugin and choose the elementorfilter.zip file. Afterwards you go to Installed Plugins and activate it.
3. Create or open a page with Elementor
If you already have a page, with a layout that you want to filter you can open that. Otherwise, create a new page and open it with Elementor.
4. Create a section with buttons
Create a section for the filter buttons.
5. Add classes to button
Open the button settings and add the ef-button class to each button module. You also add efc-CATEGORY for each category you want to filter.
If you don’t add any efc-CATEGORY class, then all elements will be shown.
6. Create another section and add class
Create a new section for the filterable elements and add the ef-area class to it.
7. Create elements you want to filter
Create rows and add your modules you want to filter into the columns.
Only the columns will be filtered, so make sure to add one filter element into one column.
8. Add classes to columns
Open the row settings and then click on the gear icon to access the column settings.
Here you add the efc-CATEGORY class, that you want the element in that column to show up for.
Now everything is set up. If you now click a button e.g. with efc-CATEGORY1 then only columns, with this class will be shown. All others will be hidden.
