JavaScript & CSS3 Content Filter + Refine with Multi-Category Select

Select and refine your content categories, and view them in a collapsed group, with this JS and CSS3 filter.

JavaScript performs the item filtering, and CSS3 transitions fade the results into view. Categories are defined with classes on each ".filter-item" div.

Results can be refined to show items that have multiple category class selections ("inclusive" filtering), OR, hide items that have multiple category class selections ("exclusive" filtering).

Please view the source of this page for HTML markup, CSS and JS.

Setting-up Filters

Each checkbox filter group should have a unique name;

<input type="checkbox" id="mild" class="filter-input" name="filter" /><label for="mild" class="filter-label info-mild">Mild</label>
<input type="checkbox" id="med" class="filter-input" name="filter" /><label for="med" class="filter-label info-med">Medium</label>
<input type="checkbox" id="hot" class="filter-input" name="filter" /><label for="hot" class="filter-label info-hot">Hot</label>

And the unique checkbox id of each filter should match the corresponding label's "for" attribute;

<input type="checkbox" id="veg" class="filter-input" name="filter" /><label for="veg" class="filter-label">Veg</label>

Which must also match the filterable class on the relevant filter-item(s);

<div class="filter-wrap">
    <div class="filter-item starter mild veg">
        <span>Starter</span>
        <b> Veg Samosa </b>
        <p>Crispy fried pastry shells with a savoury filling of spiced potatoes and peas (2 pieces).</p>
        <i>£2.75</i>
        <ul>
            <li class="info-mild">Mild</li>
            <li class="info-veg">Veg</li>
        </ul>
    </div>
    ... <!-- more filter-items here -->
</div> <!-- closing .filter-wrap -->

The "All" checkbox must also carry the ".filter-all" class, and should be checked;

<input type="checkbox" id="filter-all" class="filter-input filter-all" name="filter" checked /><label for="filter-all" class="filter-label">All</label>
