    Hey Shane! Not sure if you’re monitoring this, but I’m struggling with an implementation of this. Quick question, if I were to use the code for a product attribute (in my example, artist), how would I get the “selected” to work? How would I target the attribute/term? What I have now:

    add_filter( ‘woocommerce_product_filters’, ‘drick_filter_by_custom_taxonomy_dashboard_products’ );

    function drick_filter_by_custom_taxonomy_dashboard_products( $output ) {

    global $wp_query;

    $output .= wc_product_dropdown_categories( array(
    ‘show_option_none’ => ‘Filter by artist’,
    ‘taxonomy’ => ‘pa_artist’,
    ‘name’ => ‘pa_artist’,
    ‘hide_empty’ => 0,
    ‘selected’ => isset( $wp_query->query_vars[‘pa_artist’] ) ? $wp_query->query_vars[‘pa_artist’] : ”, //THIS IS NOT WORKING
    ) );

    return $output;

    Maybe $wp_query->query_vars is not the right way? Appreciate any help you can provide.

    • I would probably just try using somthing along the lines of

      'selected' => $_GET['pa_artist'] ?? '',
