Tweaking the Squarewebsite Universal Filter - active filter on page load

Recommended Posts

getAttr: 'tags'

Hello everyone,

I am using the awesome Universal Filter provided by Squarewebsites and it works fantastically.

However, I just need to make a slight tweak.

Is there a way to have one of the options already active on a page load?

Just as an example, is it possible to have the 'Slender tag' already selected with the summary block already displaying the results.

Universal Filter Plugin: I require default A-Z applied.

This is described in the documentation that Squarewebsites supply with their plugin. If you need additional help, I recommend you reach out to the developer.

I have purchased the Universal Filter plugin.

Is there a way to have the default page by A-Z even before I start sorting?

To set the plugin up for default Alphabetical sorting, you need to add the following line directly after "Settings -> position.


initState:{sort:['Alphabetical|asc']}, // Define what options need to be enabled on filter start
