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.

    – Image hover in the sidebar navigation.
    – nofollow, noindex for price (optional).
    – Ability to control remove button in the state filter for multiple values in the css.
    – Improved compatibility with some external themes (e.g shopper).

    Version 2.2.1 - February 8, 2013:
    - Ability to select store views for 'Pages' feature. This allows to use different translations, static blocks and meta tags for each store view.
    - Better compatibilty with Landing Pages extension
    - Fix for search on modern versions (deprecated function removed)
    - Fix for page configuration when multiple values of one attribute are selected
    - URLs hash in ajax mode is disabled by default (clean urls, but back button does not work)

    Version 2.2.0 - December 14, 2012:
    - Nice short urls for brand pages, e.g. example.com/canon.html, example.com/nike.html.
    - Great new category display mode - Advanced Categories. Allows to display either the whole category tree or any number of levels of category tree.
    - New block, in which you can display the list of a category subcategories together with thumbnails.
    - Another fantastic feature - ability to display images of configurable products based on the customer selections. E.g. if a customer selects red color on in the 'color' filter, red images (if available), will be diplayed for configurable products on category pages. This feature can be utilized for all attributes, which are used for creation of configurable products.
    - Dependent attributes update. Now you can show an attribute filter when any value in a different filter is selected. E.g. show 'color' filter only after one of 'size' values is selected.

This may cause google not to index part of pages. You can specify a parameter for urls with multiple attribute values, which also needs to be specified in google account settings. Please be careful with this one :)

    Release Notes

    Make your website easy for customers to navigate! Get more orders!

    2010-01-05 06:35:39
    • 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.

    About the Developer

    This extension was developed by and is supported by Amasty

    Improved Layered Navigation by Amasty 4.9 5 132 132
    There are many extensions that can do the job, but one of the more important factors to consider is support and Amasty has delivered so far. I have dealt with companies that say they offer support, but when you send them an email asking for help with their own extension they try to find ways to squeeze some extra cash for support. These guys aren't that kind of company. I sent a request for an issue with the extension and a custom theme I was using and received a response saying that I would need to wait a couple weeks until the programmer familiar with the extension/issue would be back from vacation to help. Which was understandable, but just a bit later that day I received an email from Alexander to resolve my problem. He took his time while on vacation to help me out. Definitely will prioritize you guys before others. It's good when a company keeps their word, but really nice when they go out of their way to help. Thanks, Ara July 24, 2012
    I totally agree with the other reviews here - another excellent module and Amasty have been top notch again. I too have used many other providers and I now gravitate to Amasty first after buying a few of their extensions. July 18, 2012
    We bought this extension and the support was very good. I am very satified with Amasty. When we need something Amasty is the first to look. thx for the help Val. July 16, 2012
    ***** 5 Stars ***** I've worked with many different magento extension makers and Amasty, by far, has the best support of all! I can't say enough good about Amasty. I very pleased with all the help they have given me. July 2, 2012
    Hi everyone. We have done a lot of Magento development and consulting. This module has proven to be flexible, well engineered, and a good performer. Recommended. June 29, 2012
    We are using this extension for some months now. During this period we discovered some bugs/issues but they were solved in the latest availabe release up to now. It would be even better to get notified when a new release is available; I had no notices in adminpanel. Support is very friendly, helpful and cooperative. many thanks! June 28, 2012
    Great Extension and fantastic helpful and human support yet again from this highly professional developer. We have bought masses of their extensions, had custom development from them and not once have they put a foot wrong. Amasty you are a joy to do business with! 5 more stars for you! Thank you June 22, 2012
    The support team is responsive is helpful. They were willing to help out with my custom modification request to the Improved Navigation add-on, trouble shooting and final managing to get it to work. June 14, 2012
    Great extension. Had i small bug but received a new extension version and now everything is working :) June 1, 2012
    I've bought a lot of extensions and have to say Alex and the Amasty team are by far the most responsive and helpful. We're using 2 of their extensions and are going to add a 3rd. Improved Nav, Meta tags.. going to add Product Parts Finder May 22, 2012

    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?
