Filter Manual


Filter Base Stack

The Filter Base Stack is where all your Filter Items will reside. Use the circle + button to add the style of Item you want to add to your "list".

Filter Items come in 3 different flavors, Open, FAQ and Catalog.

Open Item

Open Items are completely "open" to whatever you would like to use as a list item. This is the most flexible item available.

FAQ Item

FAQ Items allow you to insert a Question and Answer style setup. The top stack-dropzone is used for the "Title" ( or question ). This item is always displayed. It is a click-trigger to reveal the contents of the bottom stack-dropzone ( the "Content" ).

Catalog Item

Catalog items allow for an Image and Content. This item is specially designed so that the image will display correctly when the layout is switched between Grid to List. This item is great for Catalogs, Online Stores and any situation where an image and content is needed.

  1. Default Layout: The Layout Filter, Grid or List, will use by default when the page loads.
  2. Grid - Equal Heights: When the grid layout is displayed all the cells will display with the same height.
  3. Wait for Images to Load: Filter will wait until all images are loaded before calculating the layout. This is generally a good idea, especially when using grid style layout.
  4. Default Filter: Value to filter on when page loads. Leave blank to show all items.
  5. Combo Filter: When enabled, the user will be able to select multiple category buttons to focus down to the exact match they want.

  7. Transition Speed: The speed in which the items are animated. 1 is fasted, 0 is no transition at all.
  8. Grid Width: The percentage width for columns in the grid layout. An example would be 5 columns = 20%, 4 columns = 25%, 3 columns = 33%, etc...
  9. Grid Gutter: The amount of space in pixels placed between grid cells.
  10. Padding: Padding in pixels inside of each item container, grid and list style.

  12. List Text Align: The text alignment used on items when in list style layout.
  13. Border Color: The color used for the border on items. Grid uses all sides while List only has a bottom border.
