Hi,

What does “Layered Navigation” in cache management, under “Cache Control (beta)” really do? Is there any information on this anywhere?

Thanks!

I have the same question.  Particularly, if I uncheck the box ‘Layered Navigation’ under ‘Cache Control (beta)’, but continue to refresh the indices manually by clicking ‘refresh now’ next to ‘layered navigation indices’, does it amount to the same thing?

Layered navigation cache stores quantities for attributes (say for color:  blue(67), red(12) ...) And layered navigation indeces store info about actual products. If you want to see advanced layered navigation in action, feel free to visit the demo of the Layered Navigation Pro extension.

Regarding Cache Control (beta), Layered Navigation: I had this option checked and the quantitys next to each layered filter were wrong. Any one know how to refresh the cache so that it would get the correct numbers here. I had to uncheck this option for the correct quantity to appear next to each filter.
