The change of having this problem is really small, only when you have a lot of attributes and features and your hosting company sets a quite low value of max_input_vars for your site. To fix it, you need to increase the max_input_vars to about 10000 by using the "MultiPHP INI Editor" tool which you can find in your cPanel, one customer made the module work by setting the max_input_vars to 60000, because her/his site has tons of attributes and features.
1) For Alysum theme users, If you choose to use the "default" in the "Category Page Layout" setting in the "Theme settings" module, then the easyfilter module can work fine by default. If you use a category page generated by the Page Builder module, then search for this code in the /modules/pspagebuilder/views/templates/front/widgets/widget_categorypageproducts.tpl file.
And then put this code right above it.
2) For warehouse theme users, disable the "Faceted search on center column" under the "Content/Pages > Products list/Carousels" tab in the IqitThemeEditor module.
3) For ZOneTheme theme users, if you are going to use "select" dropdown menus, then you need to replace this code #search_filters select in the /themes/ZOneTheme/assets/js/theme.js file with
Put this code to the Custom CSS code field.
For transformer theme users and Panda theme users, if you want to show the filter block on the center column, use the "Show on" setting in the easyfilter module. Don't use the "How to display filters" setting in the theme editor. The "How to display filters" setting will be set to "Left/right column" automatically when you install the Easyfilter module, do change it after installation.
