Filter down by two categories
I'm hoping I can get some guidance on filtering. I have a view which shows user-submitted recipes created from a Formidable form (create posts). The search form I've built is a separate form that offers two dropdowns.
Course: Breakfast, lunch, Dinner, Desserts, Snacks.
Nutrition: Low-Calorie, High-Calorie, High-Protein.
Filtering individually is no problem. After submission, I use a custom link to send the user to the right view ie: recipe-search-results?course=Dinner. Then I was using your custom [if_get_param] shortcode to display the correct view. In the views themselves I know I can use a filter to say Course is equal to dinner and show Calories ascending etc.. but from the parameter, if I have something like ?course=Dinner&nutrition=Low-calorie, I don't know how to whittle that down as you can (I believe) only look for one parameter with that shortcode.
Using course equals in the views filter for some reason doesn't work. I've tried all the variations: without speech marks, all lower-case, leaving out the hyphens etc.. but nothing seems to work. By my understanding, if all filters in a view aren't met, the view won't show. But I'm finding with the just mentioned filter in the view all entries are showing. The only filter that is working is admin approved equals published.
Does anything stand out to you that I might be getting wrong there?
