Navigation - the heart of any website


Customers should clearly see the path from your website entrance to the product they are looking for. If this path is not simple and obvious, customers will get lost and your store's bounce rate will increase. It's enough to use clear and modern Magento navigation to increase revenue, because user-friendly websites become favorite and are used more often.

    • Version number: 1.4.1
    • Stability: Stable
    • Compatibility: 1.3, 1.4, 1.4.1.1, 1.4.2, 1.5, 1.6
    Ecommerce website success is virtually impossible without handy navigation. If it is hard for customers to find what they need – it will be hard for you to get orders. Now you can optimize the navigation with Improved Navigation extension – upload images for attributes, display filter options in two columns, do other enhancements. Your website will become easier to navigate, more visually attractive and memorable – and thus stimulate your customers to place orders. Make your layered navigation vivid and self-explanatory with new display modes and images – images attract customer attention and make their choice easier. It’s a de-facto standard to show colored icons or brand logos in the navigation.

    With the extension you are free to:
    - Upload images for attributes
    - Show small attribute icons on product view page. The icons link to the lists of products, having the same attribute – this is a must-have feature for book stores (allow customers to see other books by the same author), apparel stores (see the clothes from the same collection or brand), furniture stores (see items made from the same material or of the same color) and many others. Moreover, easy to comprehend icons on the product pages will help the customers to make a choice faster and better - http://improved-navigation.amasty.com/index.php/catalog/product/view/id/103/s/steven-by-steve-madden-pryme-pump/category/3/
    - Choose filter display modes (images only, labels and images, dropdowns, etc) see http://improved-navigation.amasty.com/
    - Display filter options in two columns
    - Add layered navigation to the home page – it is very important to let customers see available options right from the start.
    - Create a "featured" block for any filterable attribute (e.g. featured brands or featured collections, etc) and place it at any CMS page (several “featured” blocks are allowed simultaneously). By clicking on a brand your visitors will see brand description with logo and the list of all the brand products. This feature is widely adopted by all e-commerce solutions (so far it’s not part of Magento though)
    - Add titles and descriptions for your attributes to make your site more SE-friendly. When customers select some option from the layered navigation block, the extension will show attribute description and add appropriate meta-tags. The more relevant texts are on your pages the better it is for your site SEO.

    Great extension and great customer service We purchased this extension along with 2 other extensions from this developer. This product works great and has helped us deal with duplicate content pages for google. We have made use of the other features as well. We did have an issue with the category filter not showing up and the sort order of the filters but the developer looked into it and found the problem with one of our files and fixed it. We were impressed with the customer support. All 3 extensions we bought from them are working great and have improved out site. June 25, 2014
    Perfect Support and Powerful Extension Thanks so much for this extension, really supported and useful. June 24, 2014
    Excellent module, great support Have been using this module for over a year now. The module is easy to set up, easy to customize and does what I expected and more! Excellent support from Amasty, both with setup and upgrade. June 23, 2014
    Exellent extension, great support by Amasty Great extension. Next to the AJAX filtering, something else is really awesome about this one. The problem normally is, that adding filter attributes to your categories, the cannonical URL's get screwed up when you use an filter. This extension rewrites the filter attribute and keeps the toplevel cannonical intact. In this way, less duplicated content alarms are set off by Google for example. Had a question and problem about implementing this plugin in a clothing store, was solved almost immediately. I've implemented and build lots of Magento stores and encountered numerous extension developers, and Amasty is still the most professional company so far. June 18, 2014
    Good extension(s) Hello, I discover Amasty's extension and Amasty's support, and i'm fan ! I swith progressively my extensions to Amasty's one. Let me get a more coherent site and an integrated support :-). Thanks for all. June 10, 2014
    Great module - support goes above and beyond We implemented this on a desktop site and it worked great out-of-the-box. The support guys went above and beyond to help with implementing the module on a mobile site. Highly recommended. May 21, 2014
    Must have extension with awesome support. This extension gives you a massive amount of control and improvement over the default layered navigation, an absolute must have you take usability and conversion seriously. I had a big problem after I had implemented filters though, not fault of the extension but rather magento. Magento was displaying filters for a lot of my attributes that I really only want to show a a few categories. It became very cluttered and messy. I emailed Amasty asking if they could point me in the right direction so I could fix this myself. Instead, they full on went and implemented "Ability to include filters only in certain categories" as a new feature in an update. I am absolutely thrilled with their support and they are one of few developers I know I can always trust. May 21, 2014
    Great Extension & Support Amasty gave exelent support, All the best team Amasty! May 20, 2014
    Excellent code quality makes huge difference We've recently implemented Improved Layered Navigation (v2.5.1 - actually newer, support provided updated version). What can I say? Excellent code quality does make a difference! Plugin is easy to install and it will give a warning if something goes wrong. Everything works out of the box, and there are endless options to configure. In the beginning I was little bit lost lost :) but Amasty's support got it right. I needed size attribute displayed in two columns, there is even option for that. And what most important, plugin works just fine with Varnish cache. We use Magento Turpentine plugin for caching (https://github.com/nexcess/magento-turpentine) Overall - very good impression, the guys know Magento platform very well and know how to develope useful things for customers. Our website: http://belstock.by May 8, 2014
    Great product!!! Really great extension and full support! I had a problem with the settings of the product and the support team helped me to solved it really fast. May 2, 2014

    Hi, this extension seems to do almost everything I need, but there is one thing that I'm not sure about.

    In the demo, the categories and attributes seem to work independently of each other. For example, if you select an attribute e.g. color it no longer displays all the categories & sub-categories. Also, if you select an attribute first e.g. color and then select a category, it doesn't keep the color filter.

    Also, the categories don't seem to work the same was as attributes. For example the selected category isn't listed under the "Currently shopping by" section, and you can only select one category whereas you can select multiple options for attributes.

    I'd really like to use this extension because it does most of what I need and it works on the home page which is great! But I also need an extension that treats categories the same was as attributes because customers won't know the difference in my store.

    Is it possible for categories to work the same way as attributes with this extension? Thanks.

    Answer: 
    Seems odd that no one has answered this question. Here's my answer as just a user of this extension on a store that hasn't launched yet.

    Inability to use multiple categories seems to be a restriction of Magento itself. Like you, my customers won't need to know the difference between categories and attributes. So I simply made another attribute called "category".

    With this extension, if we have a large amount of attributes, is there any way of having a scrollbar or search bar for that attribute section?

    I am including the layered navigation on a CMS page. The multiple selection is activated for all filters.

    However, when I select an option, the other available options are not displayed anymore for that particular filter.

    I also have a message in the backend saying there is a conflict between this and class Flagbit_FactFinder_Model_Layer_Filter_Attribute_Catalog. Could this be the problem?

    Thank you very much,

    Hi,

    We use a theme that will upgrade to jQuery 1.11.1 when we upgrade the theme. Will there be any jQuery conflicts with this extension?
