# Summary

The Better Exposed Filters module replaces the Views' default single- or multi-select boxes with radio buttons or checkboxes, respectively. Description fields and Select All/None links can be added to exposed filters to make for a better user experience.

Status: Active » Needs work

Update (26 Jan 2016): I would make an alpha release of BEF for Drupal 8.x but I'm waiting on #2651102: Using checkboxes for exposed filters results in zero rows displaying to be committed before doing so. It blocks a fairly major use-case for BEF. Feel free to test the patch and report your results in that issue. Thanks!

At this point, I consider the BEF module to be in alpha. As pointed out above, I would tag a release except for #2651102: Using checkboxes for exposed filters results in zero rows displaying which blocks a huge use-case for BEF. Currently working (though not thoroughly tested...):

  • Checkboxes/Radio buttons for various exposed filters
  • Nested checkboxes/radio buttons for hierarchical taxonomy filters
  • Select all/none and nested select all/none
  • Exposed filters as links

Make sure you're using the latest -dev release (or git clone)!

Hallo mikeker,

I've testet the latest D8 Release.
As soon as I check "Combine sort order with sort by" the "Display exposed sort options as: Links" is not working anymore. It will be displayed as Radio's.

Seems me a little confusioning.

Why use this module the not implemented drupal_add_library, drupal_add_css ....?
(Version 8.x-3.x-dev)

Will this be changed or my mistake?

Hi @mfrosch and @Daniele -- you should report these issues in the issue queue for Better Exposed Filters (https://www.drupal.org/project/issues/search/better_exposed_filters). This topic is meant to be a high-level overview of D8 porting status, and not the place to address individual issues. :)
