It's important to design the store navigation to be flexible and user-friendly for your customers. With the extension, you will provide users with a handy way of browsing your product catalog, which includes using various filters, such as price slider, color, brand and other attributes. Ajax filtering speeds up the search process, attributes' icons in the navigation help to recognize the desired options at first sight and multiple filter selection expands search boundaries. Now you can create relevant filters in the left and vertical menus to give users a possibility to narrow their choices. For example, you can create brand pages or brands lists to offer users an alternative navigation option and help them see only needed products.


Key features

  • No page reloads with AJAX filtering;
  • Vertical and Horizontal Navigation;
  • Handy price sliders and widgets;
  • In stock and reviews filtering;
  • Multiple values of the same filter;
  • Images and labels instead of text for better visual browsing;
  • 'All products' and 'All brands' pages;
  • Built-in Shop by Brand functionality;
  • Brands Slider for any CMS page or a block;
  • Custom URL alias for filters options;
  • SEO-friendly URLs;
  • Flexible canonical URL modes for category and 'all-products' pages.



Multiple values of the same filter

The extension enables your customers to apply multiple values of the same filter. For example, they can choose green and yellow options of color filter to view skirts of both colors at the same time.

Display a search box for each filter

With the module, you can add a separate search box to any filter you need. Let customers find necessary products inside a specific filter in a couple of seconds.

Set the number of unfolded filter values

Determine the number of filter options that will be unfolded when a customer clicks on the filter name. To see more options customers should click on the 'More' button.

Apply multiple filters in bulk

With the extension, you can either apply filters instantly one by one or let store visitors select as many filters as they need and submit all of them in one go. Display a special 'Apply Filters' button for vertical and/or horizontal navigation to make product filtering fast and easy.



 Let customers quickly filter products by price, size or any other numeric attribute to maximally reduce the time spent on products search.

Price slider display option for numeric attributes

Use Magento 2 Layered Navigation slider display mode for various numeric attributes like price, weight, memory size, megabyte, etc. to make store usage more convenient for the customers. Besides, sliders take a lot less space in the navigation block, so the navigation will be more compact.

Set limits for a price slider

Manually limit the price range according to your needs for a slider display mode.

'From-to' widget for numeric attributes

To filter products by price or any other numeric attribute you can either display price ranges or let customers specify minimal and maximal price limits with a handy widged. It's also possible to show the 'from-to' widget together with other price filter types.



Advanced options for navigation by brand

A great number of online shoppers are deeply convinced that a famous brand is one of the most important features of any product. Connect items with manufacturers to improve your revenue and boost customers’ loyalty at the same time.

  • Filter products by brand in the navigation block – provide customers with an intuitive way to find exactly what they need.
  • Create brand pages with custom texts and images - help customers find all products of their favorite brand.
  • Add CMS blocks – display custom CMS blocks on brand pages.
  • Use alphabetical block – create a page with all brands available in your store.
  • Use brand icons instead of names on the 'All brands' page.

Add a brand slider to any CMS page or block

Display a handy slider with featured brands on the "All brands" page as well as on any CMS page or a block. Draw customer attention to the most popular manufacturers and turn shopping by brand into a fast and easy process.

More options for 'All Brands page'

Upgrade your brand listing page with a pack of advanced features to help shoppers find necessary brands in seconds:

  • Display a handy search box with the auto-suggest option;
  • Enable a first character filter;
  • Show the number of available products for each brand;
  • Add a link to a brand listing page to the main menu.

Add brand logos to product pages

Equip product pages with a clickable brand logo that redirects customers to the corresponding brand page. This way you'll easily motivate shoppers to buy more items of their favorite manufacturer.



Create brand pages with short URLs

Due to the feature-rich extension, you can create unique ‘featured’ brand pages with extra short SEO-friendly URLs like

Create SEO-friendly URLs

The option allows pages filtered by certain attributes to be properly indexed and automatically generates SEO-friendly URLs for corresponding attributes. For example, an URL will look like 'category/autumn.html' instead of category.html?season=114.

Specify custom texts and meta data for filter combinations

Easily upgrade pages with filter combination results. Add custom content and necessary meta data to pages with specified filter options which is highly useful for long tail keyword optimization.



Enrich default categories display modes (Labels and Dropdown) with new options

With a highly flexible category tree option you can display either the whole category list or any number of its levels. Adjust categories display to your needs and make catalog browsing maximally convenient.

  • Enable multi-select option (for both display modes);
  • Regulate the number of unfolded category options (for 'labels' mode);
  • Specify subcategories display type: fly-out or folding (for 'labels' mode);
  • Set category tree depth (max level of categories);
  • Indicate the level from which categories will be shown;
