Client side filtering of collection - ie. website user filters property listings by price range Merged

Basically the ability to allow website users to filter collections - i.e. Property listings - filter by price/location/.

At present, I could set up separate pages/tabs for different price ranges and have links to these for the user - i.e. between €200,000 - €300,000.

It'd be great if this was more dynamic in that I gave this power to the user to filter exactly as they need.

So, for example - I would be able to add a dropdown/input field that filters the location field of a given collection. the user selects or types the location and the presses search, and a new page is produced with the results of the filter.

Or I would be able to add an input field with a maximum price where the user types in their value, presses search and a new page is produced with the results of the filter.

This feature would also ideally allow the combination of multiple filters - i.e. location, maximum price, no. of rooms, etc.

    This is a great idea and a must for Webflow. I am working on a custom solution to add filtering to our site or face moving it to Wordpress instead.

    My thoughts

    1) Filtering must work with collections and the custom fields and dynamic lists created by them. If you have a books collection you are no doubt going to have author, genre as custom fields. 

    2) Maybe this is an extension of the upcoming search feature. Being able to filter what is loaded on the page is one thing. But for collections with 50+ items that span multiple pages it would need to do a full search for that content and reload it as a result?

    3) It would be nice to have a filter Webflow element that can be added from the add panel. This would output a filter for specific fields that are marked in the field create panel as filterable. eg: Filter by Author & Filter by Genre drop downs that would filter the results.

    Im about to start a rebuild for a home developer site, and this is a must-have for the client. It would be amazing to sort by location, style, price-range, etc ... I really hope this gets developed soon!

    Yes, the biggest key here for me being the combination of multiple filters (like my attached example). Most larger commerce sites have the option to select price range, product type, size, color, etc. all at once. I'm about to start developing a site and really don't want to have to mess with javascript but looking like that's my only option for now.

    It would be great to have something what Metafizzies Isotope does with dynamic list elements.

    A filtering option would be great!

    I'm not developer but we already have the "filter" and "sort" feature in the designer, maybe it could be an "element" linked to that filter so the user can have access to it in the live website.

    It would be really awesome since it's a limitless feature you can use in many websites in different ways.

    Filtering by dates. For example for events, agendas... search all what is happening this weekend.
