I’m trying to add a Make/Model filter to my cell phone accessory store, but no luck so far. I’ve looked at Part finder extensions, specifically Amasty’s, but I have yet to find one that will let my customers select a Make/Model on the front page have it “stick” for the whole browsing session.
Does anyone have a suggestion on an extension that would accomplish this?
You can also just keep it simple, create \’Makes/MakeName/ModelName\’ categories and assign the relevant products to these. You can create dropdowns and have assigned related products. You can also create custom code to filter however there are various places that it needs updated included layered navigation and search results so it is best to keep it simple with categories which are built in.
What you are trying to do is a little bit more complicated, so I tend to agree with VanquishSBS\’s solution. If you really want it to work like the big sites do it you will want to do it right by storing the make and model as a session / cookie, etc. Then have all of the rest of the product collections filter off of that.
