About Developer

aheadWorks is a dynamic market leading provider of Magento extensions, Magento templates and themes, and custom development services with a comprehensive portfolio of best-in-class solutions for eCommerce businesses.

We have launched numerous powerful extensions to the world’s fastest growing eCommerce platform Magento which serve to address gaps and exploit every opportunity in the entire eCommerce process. Whether it is user interface or marketing or operations management, you will find an extension that fulfills your needs.

Layered Navigation Extensions

Layered Navigation simplifies the product search filtering items based on their attributes. For example, handbags can be filtered by color, size, material, price, etc. Since your visitors know what interests them the extension allows finding the desired product faster.

Magento navigation filters appear in the upper left column on Catalog or/and Search results pages. These filters are created automatically and 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.

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. Such representation is good to filter by price range and is easy-to-use for customers who choose items according to their budget.

The implemented AJAX technology allows filtering products without page reloading. Paging, sorting, and grid/list view are supported by AJAX too. Layered Navigation modifies the current page URL and a bookmark with a particular attributes set can be easily saved by customers or even shared with their friends. Such URL can be used by merchants for different marketing purposes as well.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
