Best Search Filter Plugin

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a plugin that can search and filter auto parts. I plan to have the parts appear depending on what type of vehicle you put into the filter but I haven't found a plugin that can help me do that.

There probably isn't a plugin that specific.  There are filtering plugins that work on posts/pages/custom post types and shopping cart plugins that have filtering capabilities so the first decision you have to make is which way are you going to go here.

If you want to just parts, create a custom post type for it and populate. I would then look into FacetWP and possibly combine it with SearchWP for the best filter/search experience.  Having the image of the part show up in the results would simply consist of adding the image of the part as a Featured Image and then setting up the results page to display it.

If you want to set up a shopping site, use a good eCommerce plugin like WooCommerce and it will have add-ons that allow for faceted searching and filters.
