Year Make Model Search for WooCommerce


It has fixed number and the sort order of the drop-down selects:
— Make —
— Model —
— Year —

Product restrictions are used for searching and for drop-downs options in the search box.
So if you set a restriction like:
Acura, CL, 1997, 1998

for a product.

The “Acura CL 1997” will be already selectable in the search box on the front-end.

Main Features:

  • Search for products on the home page
  • Filter products on category pages
  • List applicable vehicles on the front-end product view page
  • CSV import / export for product restrictions

If you are using Google Cloud SQL, you need to remove the ENGINE=MYISAM in the ymm-search/Setup/Install.php code. Because Cloud SQL only supports ENGINE=InnoDB. Best plugin I vote! Easy and reliable. Could add some css alternatives.

This is one of the best plugins I've experienced, and I've been using WordPress for almost 20 years now. The plugin has great performance, it's easy to customize it, the documentation is extensive and the support from the developer is top-notch. I can really recommend this plugin, both in free and paid versions.

This is exactly what we were looking for! Not only that the Author took time and helped us with some customization we needed to default the Make to a certain make automatically. Very friendly and supportive. THANKS!!!
