    Hello!

    I think I found a bug in the dynamic grid as it relates to URLs on the "read more" button. I've captured the info in the following screenshots with notations.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks!

    Hi Max,

    I did use an icon box from Elements Kit in the base template, and then the Unlimited Elements Dynamic Grid and selected that template with the E Kits layout. I switched to an unlimited elements widget in the template and all seems ok.

    Thanks!

    Hi Max,

    I managed to get this working, appreciate the feedback on it. I wanted to ask another question. I use a plugin called https://searchandfilter.com/ which allows us to offer search and filter capabilities on a variety of content types (categories, tags, etc.). We use it with the LearnDash LMS plugin to make it easy to find courses we offer.

    We've created a little mini course, too simple for the LMS< called 2-Minute Tutorials and it's what this initial support request was about. Getting those tutorials to mimic the look of our LearnDash course grid. With your help, I managed to get that done.

    The problem I am facing now is getting the search and filter plugin to work with your dynamic grid. The vendor behind that plugin suggested we look at dynamic.ooo, but we're quite happy with your plugin and the various other elements it offers. 

    https://searchandfilter.com/documentation/3rd-party/dynamic-content-elementor/

    I wondered if you would be able to provide an integration with Search and Filter? When I asked the support team if they would be open to it, they said:

    "If you ask Unlimited Elements how they might want to integrate, we can likely help. Essentially, in its simplest form, we need to be able to add our argument to the wp_query (it would override all other arguments), and also link to the pagination."

    Curious if this is something of interest? Not sure if it would require payment? I think it could be something you could cross promote, it's a really nice search and filter tool.

    Be well!

    Hi Max,

    I'm working on getting a connection between you, me, and Search & Filter Pro, how would you like to start the conversation, would email work?

    Thanks!

    Hi Max,

    I asked Trevor about this, he said the following:

    They can either start a purchase and abandon it at the purchase point, or simply send an email to: 

    [email protected]

    Our system will automatically create an account if one does not exist for the email address they use

    I have an account so don't have a means to start a new one, though I should make up an address if the above isn't workable for you?

    Thanks!

    -Scott

    Hi Max,

    I let Trevor know and he said...

    "Thanks for setting that up. I can see the ticket. I have assigned it to the plugin owner/developer and link this ticket to it. I cannot make any promises, especially with regard to developer time scheduling and availability."

    We'll see how it goes.

    Be well!

    I've asked that they add me to the communication so I can help push it along. My hunch is most of the work actually falls to you adding a few bits of info for their plugin to dump the filtered results into the grid. I could certainly be wrong on that. If I'm right, I also asked them if they have documentation to help move that along.

    Thanks!

    Hi Max,

    Just checking in and realized this info might be of value. This was the initial response from their support team when i was talking about our use of Unlimited Elements:

    Thanks for contacting us. If you ask Unlimited Elements how they might want to integrate, we can likely help. Essentially, in its simplest form, we need to be able to add our argument to the wp_query (it would override all other arguments), and also link to the pagination.

    So, yes, the dynamic widget just shows the data, I believe they need some arguments included in that display so that their plugin can sort and filter the results.

    I suspect you've not heard from them yet?

    Thanks!

    hi everyone,

    i just stumbled across this conversation (as far as it is public).i am using the combination unlimited elements + search&filter pro. i'm not sure, if this would help you in a way, but there ist some integration for elementor default grid widgets. an in general it works with UE-widgets, too – with one problem for me at the moment: the pagination.

    i made a page with ACFs and a UE loop and UE pagination widget.
    results are displayed and i can filter and browse through the results.
    but when i click on button for eg. "page 2", a parameter is passed (xyz.com/blog/?sf_paged=2); the results change to the next page, but the layout for the current page within the pagination is not rendered correctly. the button for page 1 is still highlighted and it looks like that the params are not passed to the pagination module.

    displaying results via ajax / infinite scroll is not working.

    did you have a similar problem? did you come up with some solutions?

    best
    jürgen
