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.

    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 -
    - Choose filter display modes (images only, labels and images, dropdowns, etc) see
    - 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.

    best work these guys are awesome, i bought over 6 extensions from them and their customer service staff is phenomenal; give them a shot, won't be disappointed! September 6, 2014
    Works as described We installed this on CE 1.9, and while it worked out of the box some things did not quite mesh right with 1.9's default responsive design. Notably the price slider and and collapsing feature. Amasty was quick to fix these however and incorporated the fixes into their next version. They seem put a lot of effort into keeping this extension up to date, I have even received proactive emails from them asking what features/improvements I would like to see added to it next. September 5, 2014
    Good support and works like a charm The extension worked on our custom theme without deep modifications needed and the support was quick to help us when we had questions. September 2, 2014
    Works smoothly Documentation, help and the code itself is very good. assistance is also very helpful and fast September 2, 2014
    Very Good - could be great The extension is easy to install and works straight out f the box. It is also very intuitive to configure. I rated this product as good and not great because it does not work on the advanced search result page. The support team is very professional. I had two issues One related to a conflict on collapsing/expanding the category and shop by section and background loading behaviour. This was not fully resolved but an acceptable workaround was put in place. The second issue was more strategic and affected user experience and category navigation . The team resolved it in no time and advised that it would be added as a feature in a future release. I use it with other extensions that also deal with the catalog and only one easy-to-resolve conflict was found. so far. I do recommend it especially for non specialists like me August 22, 2014
    Great extension with fantastic support We have used this extension on our website and found it very simple to use and set up to meet our requirements. Also when we ran into a small issue the support from the team was fantastic. They had the issue resolved within 24 hours. Highly recommend! August 19, 2014
    Excellent extension It's very good and useful extension with extensive functionality. And Amasty provide the good support that very important! August 15, 2014
    Must have extension with great support We recently had another popular filter / navigation extension, but it was buggy and the support was terrible. Due to previous good experience with Amasty we decided to switch to Improved Layered Navigation, and man are we happy we did. The half price extension support renewal made it even more worth while. We experienced a glitch with ajax and our third party theme and the Amasty support team logged in and sorted it all out very quickly. Couldnt be happier. July 25, 2014
    must have extension and superb support i'm been using this extension for years. For me, a magento store have no sense without it. Also we used customization service to add new functions and support is very good and fast. keep doing that way Amasty July 25, 2014
    Outstanding extension Full of features... hassle-free installation... So far, very satisfied. July 23, 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.

    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,
