Overview

Layered Navigation by aheadWorks - AJAX custom filters

The Magento Layered Navigation extension is an essential tool for those who want to enhance product search filtering on the website. Layered Navigation optimizes store navigation and allows customers to find the desired items quickly and easily.

Navigation filters appear automatically in the upper left column on Catalog and/or Search results pages and are changed according to specified product attributes or search parameters. Thus we have one set of filters for handbags catalog and the other for men’s belts. Magento AJAX navigation allows filtering products without page reloading.

A store administrator has the full control over the filters settings and their look. For example, you can add thumbnails for a category tree or fold long list of options. Numeric values can be specified in a slider or in a ‘From –To’ field.

Frontend Features


Speed up products search
The AJAX-based navigation lets your customers avoid page reloads and see required products faster than the standard Magento navigation does. On clicking the ‘Back’ button, all previously selected filter options stay saved, and visitors can see products that match those parameters.

Save time of your customers - no page reloads anymore
The module uses the AJAX technology for all elements of the catalog toolbar (paging, sorting, show per page, view change) and lets your catalog content change seamlessly without page reloads.

Motivate your customers to come back
Your customers can filter products based on different options and then bookmark the generated page URL for further usage. The link will lead to the list of found products to continue their shopping experience easily, thus saving their time on selecting the parameters once again.

HTML5-based URL Change

Provide more search flexibility
The implemented Range Slider and numeric filters let your customers specify their own custom ranges for price, weight, size, height and other numerical attributes. Moreover, the extension allows clients to filter products both by decimal and integer attribute values.

Solr search engine support (NEW!)
Apply layered navigation functionality to Solr search results (Magento EE) and let visitors find desired items easily.

Backend Features


Configure the look and feel of filter options
Filters can be displayed as a Check box, Radio box, Range Slider for price and other numeric values, and ‘From – To’ number field.

Multiple Elements for Filter Options

Control filter displaying
The Magento Layered Navigation extension allows you to decide what filter options and where should be shown. You can easily hide attributes for some product categories and configure whether to show them on Catalog or Search results pages.

Hide for Category

Optimize SEO parameters
The module allows a store administrator to specify individual SEO word for each filter. So your customers will see clear and nice-looking URL on all pages where the filter value is selected.

Customise layered navigation design
Layered Navigation is entirely customizable from the backend. Flexible module settings allow a store administrator to change the look of filters to suit any website design:

* sort attributes’ position
* upload thumbnails
* set up column layout
* edit attribute titles
* etc.

Edit Filter

In addition to the mentioned options, each filter has a description field. Just insert relevant content in this field to show tips to customers when they hover the mouse over a filter.You can also provide clients with attribute hints which can appear as an icon or a text in the upper-right corner near the attribute filter.

Help Notices

Integration with other aW extensions:


Advanced Search
Replace native Magento search with Sphinx and let customers find trustworthy results.

Great navigation extension!! The installation is very simple (ftp upload, nothing else) and the plugin works pretty well. The previous version had some bugs but after reporting to support, the extension have updated to a new version fully functional. Very helpful support and ticketing system really simple and effective!! Wwith this extension, site navigation becomes more user friendly, the extension is also customizable to exceptional levels, which allows you to refine the navigation depending on the type of user and the category of goods sold February 25, 2015
No words to describe Installation very easy, and works like a charm! Due some search detail needed in one of my stores, this extension does exactly what we need. We had some questions and AW support was quick and strict to the point! Keep up the good job guys! December 13, 2014
Not recommended if you have custom product collection It's working fine on the default categoryy page however you need to do a lot of customisation if you other product listing that inherits Magento Layered nav. November 13, 2014
Excellent Really all excellent. The extension does what it promises. Respecting the specifications you can set all kinds of filters. It is also excellent and very fast the ticketing system. Everything perfect. September 24, 2014
Excellent extension It is an excellent extension that helps a lot to the search stuff on Magento and presents the filter Navigation widget in several fancy ways. Besides, it is configurable enough to many business requirements. The support is excellent and pretty accurate, and the time of response to any request is definitely fast. The only thing I'd like to have still, is the possibility to know the current filter selection in a natural and direct way, it can be developed but it would be an excellent plus! September 3, 2014
Seo Url Although this extension is excellent but one drawback is filter url are not seo friendly. If you will add this functionality in extesnion, It would be nice. July 15, 2014
Great value for money This extension delivers a great customer experience when you rely on product filtering with attributes. You can configure it in many ways (colors / icons / checkboxes / radiobuttons / ...) and I think it's great value for money when you plan on using it intensely. Their developer support team is friendly, keeps you up to date and fast. I had an issue with some attributes, made a support ticket and was helped within 3 days with no extra charge. I would recommend this product because the installation was simple, the product works as described, the support is great and it gets the job done with no hassle. April 4, 2014

Answer: 
Hello!

Our Layered Navigation extension supports "Checkbox Group" input type for Categories, allowing a customer to select multiple categories at once.
As for the Price attribute, the extension offers both mentioned representations. You can display the Price filter as "From-To" input or as a Slider.
If you have any further questions regarding the Layered Navigation extension, feel free to contact our Support team.
Thank you.

Shop by: Looks
- Look 1
- Look 2
- Look 3

Shop by: Sleeve
- Sleeve 1
- Sleeve 2

Look1..3 and Sleeve 1...2 are categories. Can your extension help me to divide category attribute in two?

Thanks

Answer: 
Hello, Bharat.

Our Layered Navigation extension inherits the native Magento category structure, so all the categories / subcategories can only be listed under one section.
However, our extension allows representing Categories as a collapsible tree, so if you have a parent category for each of the sub-category groups, it may be a solution.

Thank you.
