Magento Commerce update for Layered Navigation

Magento Commerce update for Layered Navigation

Layered navigation can be used to search for products by category or by attribute. For example, when a shopper chooses the Mens/Shorts category from the top navigation, the initial results include all products in the category. The list can be filtered further by choosing a specific style, climate, color, material, pattern, or price—or a combination of values. Filterable attributes appear in an expanding section that lists each attribute value. As an option, the list of products with matching results can be configured to include products with, or without, a match.

The attribute properties, combined with the product input type, determine which attributes can be used for layered navigation. Layered navigation is available only for anchor categories, but can also be added to search results pages. The Catalog Input Type for Store Owner property of each attribute must be set to DropdownMultiple Select, or Price. To make the attributes filterable, the Use in Layered Navigation property of each must be set to either Filterable (with results) or Filterable (no results).

  1. This is essential extension that every new store must have
    I’ve been using this plugin for six months. It doesn’t require additional configuration you have to worry about. Cool feature with an interactive frame. A bit frustrated about Ajax not included by default, hope to see it in the next update. Definitely recommend.

  2. Website navigation is great for your users and your SEO performance. Good website navigation makes it easy for your visitors to find what they want and for search engines to crawl. The result: more conversions and greater search visibility.

  3. New version gets updated with AJAX, which is good, and there are two reasons why it is important:
    1. This is the design many of store owners needed;
    2. aheadWorks listens to their customers.
    Also, a significant part of the code has been rewritten in the name of better compliance with Magento 2 guidelines, which, along with unit tests, makes an integration easier.
    As a developer, I can’t help appreciating their way of updating the products.
