Adding Advanced Search filter to category page, keeping page and sub-categories

    I want to let my users filter listings by area. So I setup an Advanced Search according to a custom “tn_area” field, and that works great.

    But: I want that if a user filters in a category page, he still remain inside that category. But Advanced Search widget takes the user away from the category page! – see screenshots

    Reason: In my site the category distinction and descriptions are very important to me. So, my homepage links to category pages (which prominently display description and sub-categories), and all searching/filtering must keep that display.

    Cause: Advanced Search widget has a form with an action that redirects to homepage. This is hardcoded in:

    framework\class\class_search.php ! build_form():
      echo (...) action="' . esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ) (...) ;

    I might raise a feature request about this later on…

    My solution: Remove in client-side script. Add in Design Setup >Custom Meta Data >Footer Styles:

      jQuery(".paddingtop20 h1").remove()
