This extension can be used to display an accordion category menu in sidebars of a website.
OverviewBack to top
Here, we have taken care of page performance by loading only the required category structure on page load and holding on the rest until a request via ajax. If the category count on the store is 100 or more, loading the full category structure may crash the website!
In addition to this, when this is enabled on category pages, the current category structure will be automatically expanded. This will help the user to narrow down his or her search by easily choosing their navigation to a subcategory of the current category.
This extension allows adding accordion category menu to the sidebar of below pages:
- Home/CMS pages
- Category pages
- Product pages
- Easy to install.
- Lightweight Extension.
- Automatically expand current category on page load.
- Show current category name on navigation header.
