Thank you AW!
Absolutely happy with this plugin and Aheadworks support! Was initially confused with some options, but looking through the docs and asking a couple of questions was enough. Will certainly be back for more apps from AW!
Cannot handle lots of attributes
We installed this on one of our sites which has approx 50,000 products and 2000 unique filterable attributes although only 30 per attribute set on average.
Our dev needed to modify the source code to get the extension to work as the index process was running out of memory even on our high spec dedicated server. The index then took well over 6 hours to complete. When we got it working functionality was good, but performance (speed of filter refresh / selection) was much worse than an alternative product from another Magento extension provider so we went with that. The index time was likely also going to be prohibitive to run in a production environment too.
We would really like Aheadworks to sort out the performance issues for this extension (for large catalogs / attribute numbers) as we would prefer to use this extension than the alternative we currently use as (being an Aheadworks extension) it causes fewer conflicts with our other Aheadworks extensions we have installed on our site.
Great solution from Aheadworks
Want to say “Thank you”! I am really happy with the work of the tool. It does everything that I need. Super fast and very effective
Not working out of the box
Not working out of the box. very frustrating and to expensive for the quality of the program. There are many free programs that work better.
Great Product from even Greater Company!
Absolutely awesome product. Clean code, super fast and excellent support helping me with installation issues. Highly recommend.
+ It is a really great extension with very high support.
+ very helpful
+ boost your shop
- We submit a question for a new and great function but it was not accept...:(
Great extension and thank you to the aheadworks support team for their help on our custom theme.
I've been using Aheadworks Layered Navigation for quite a while now, but it's their recent update that made me write this review:)
They added quite a couple of features lately, and these were the EXACT ones I'd been craving for.
Seriously, guys, thank you!
There's a plenty of Layered Nav exts out there, but now the Big Player is on the field:)
Seriously, I'm utterly happy with the AW Layered Nav, and I don't think I will be using anything else in my projects, for the foreseeable future at least.
Does what it says, and does is brilliantly.
This extension is a great asset to any store!!!!
I found the extension worked seamlessly with my magento install, and provides my customers with the facility to find products they need in the most simple way. This is a big plus for store owners as they can help users in search of required goods.
The module is built on a solid foundation, and can be styled easily to suit your theme. This extension is definately worth the money, for the features it provides and the time it saves. I can also vouch for the support, as I needed to install the extension on my store and as a bit of a Magento novice I required assistance. The developers were able to provide a quick and elegant solution. Overall, very happy with the extension and the service provided.
did all we asked and more
This product works, its fast efficient easy to install. However, it does not have any built in color swatches so you will have to make your own on PS or AI. but its a must have for all good sites. Coding seems to be clean, and installs in less than 10 minutes if you know what you are doing.
As all the other aheadWorks extension we tried, this newly released module is excellent and very useful.
There are numerous modules of that sort on the market, but I've been waiting for the one from AW eagerly.
I had wonderful experience with their products before, and this new layered navigation absolutely lived up to my expectaions.
Good code, decent features - should I say more?
This app can be described in just one word: IMPROVEMENT!
It is really a huge improvement over both Magento's built-in layered nav, and over quite a few similar plugins from other devs we have tried this far.
Nice looking, fast, reliable - I couldn't have been satisfied more.
Nice-looking, fast, easy to use. Kudos to aw tech guys, who have installed the ext for us within a couple of hours:).
I'm really excited by this extension. That's why I leave this positive review, guys. Besides the great customizable design of the extension I'd like to say some words about the features I like most of all. AJAX filtering is extremely useful for our customers. I know it because of my rich experience as an online purchaser. This feature considerably improves native Magento navigation that was on my store before. Moreover this technology lets consumers get the search results in a convenient way and much faster. The URL change based HTML5 is the second thing I appreciate. It saves much time when you need to come back to the same store again and again. With this feature you can save the URL and don't need to set needed parameters. It's more than just a tool! Fantastic!
Thank you so much! Wish you more successful products!
This is just a great ext. Works fast, and works everywhere! For stores with large catalogs, it is just a must.
What I specially like about this module is the way it works with URL params. Hint: you can include the link to pre-filtered set of products into, say, NL, to get your customers the exact items YOU want to sell them.
Didn't expect that I would be using a navigation tool for promotions%)
