Improved Layered Navigation with ajax filtering, ajax multi select, price slider, filter search box, color swatch ajax filter and more.
OverviewBack to top
Layered Navigation Ajax Filter is a tool for narrowing down the displayed product list within a category by specifying one or more product attributes (e.g., narrowing the 750 products in the “Clothing” category by size, color, material, cut, etc). Multiple filters can be combined by the user to meet some very specific needs (e.g., “color: black,” “price: $19.99 - $49.99,” “waist size: 32,” and “length size: 34”). Customers that use the filters are usually converting at a much higher rate as they are able to find exactly what they are looking for in a matter of seconds.
With our extension we took the initial capabilities of the default Magento functionality and enhanced it with the most commonly used ones.
The New Functionalities Include:
- Ajax Filter
- Color Swatch Ajax Filter with attribute Multi Select
- Ajax Filter vizibility category restriction
- Sorting Option by Name or Position defined by user. Improved Layered Navigation.
- Filter Values Qty vizibility control. Item count vizibility.
- Hide / Show Compare Block
- Hide / Show Wishlist Block
- Attribute Multi Select Ajax Filter - Select multiple options from the same attribute
Ajax Filter with Filter Search Box.
We implemented the Ajax Filter do decrease time between the moment when the customer clicks a filter and moment when the products are filtered. The Ajax Filter eliminates the need of a full page refresh so your customers can experience a much faster and smoother transition while applying each filter.
Not having an Ajax Filter Option would apply 2-4 seconds (even more based on your website page load time) every time a filter is applied or removed. In addition it would interfere with the pageview count metric in Google Analytics.
Customize Ajax Filter
Magento does not allow by default to customize any attribute. With our extension now you can easily determine which filter is the most relevant so you can collapse the ones less used and allow focus on the most important ones.
Filter Display Option: ( Fully Opened / Closed / Expandable )
If you are looking for a midway solution, you will also have the option to use the Show more functionality. This option allows you to display by default 5 options (the number of options is configurable) and then have a “show more” button to reveal more.
You will also be able to select if you would like to display Quantity and how the sorting should be setup.
Show Item Counter: ( Yes / No )
Sort by: ( Position / Name )
New Filter Options for Category Restriction
You probably already looked it up on Google how to remove the Category, Compare and Wishlist blocks. Look no further! You will now have the option to display or hide which block you want your customers to interact with.
This options can be found under:
Show Category Filter: Yes/No
Show Compare Products block: Yes/No
Show Wish List block : Yes/No
Attribute Multi Select
The Attribute Multi Select feature is the most often used by your customers. Some attributes such as size or color is often multi selected. Eg. In a shoe category that contains multiple sizes, the customer might select the following sizes 8.5/9/9.5 to make sure that he finds what he needs as sizing might often vary based on brand or style.
Enable Attribute Multi Select: Yes/No
SEO Improvements that drives results
We often seen implementations where certain attributes are added to the URL and delimited by a simple “/”. That implementation can often be very dangerous as there is no easy way of eliminating all the attribute combinations which often result in generation of ten’s of thousands of unwanted url.
Over many years of experience with Enterprise Customers, and working with leading SEO agencies, we found the most scalable implementation.
We are keeping each attribute as a query in the URL: https://weltpixel.com/women/tops-women/jackets-women.html?color=56&size=167
the attribute parameter Color and Size can be easily removed using Robots.txt file, excluded in various sitemap generator tools as well as excluded in Google Search Console.
The URL canonical tag remains the original URL https://weltpixel.com/women/tops-women/jackets-women.html
The above implementation helped rank our Enterprise Customers on top 3 position for the highest competitive keywords in the industry.
