Search by Category

Search by Category provides two display modes.

You can set it to be an advanced search where your customers select a category (or it is pre-selected already if they are inside the category on the website) and search area is changed immediately to show only the category’s attributes. Then they enter a word or phrase – and voila! – they get the exact list of items they have been looking for.

Or you can set it to be a filter (‘search by’ functionality). Your customers will narrow parameters going deep inside categories and sub-categories. At any step they can select to display the results or continue narrowing the parameters.

And even more! You can add advanced search to your simple search. It will be a modern slider closed by defaults and sliding down on click. Or/and you insert search anywhere on your website as a widget.


» You select parameters to search by
» Different parameters displayed depending on category
» Two modes – search and ‘search-by’ filter
» Two ways to add – as a slider pane or as a widget
» Happy customers get what they look for!

Will I be able to insert or place a search box in different locations , say for example put a search bar on a category landing page, or a cms page, or even in a navigational drop down. Can I default it to a specific category if that is the case.
