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.

Features:

  • Quick AJAX filtering
    The AJAX-based navigation and sorting allows your customers to see the selected products faster than in the standard Magento navigation without multiple page reloading, thus optimizing customer experience.
    On clicking the ‘Back’ button, all the previously selected filter options stay saved, and visitors can see the products that match those parameters.
  • AJAX toolbar
    The extension supports AJAX for all the elements of the catalog toolbar: paging, sorting, show per page, view change (grid/list). The catalog content changes seamlessly without page reload.
  • HTML5-based URL change
    Your customers can filter products specifying the desired attributes set and bookmark the generated page URL for further usage. This link will show the list of found products saving their time on selecting the parameters once again.
  • Filter options
    There are several options to display filters – Check box, Radio box, Range Slider for price and other numeric values, and ‘From – To’ number field.
  • 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 store 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 your customers tips appearing 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.
  • Control filter displaying
    The Magento Layered Navigation extension allows you to control specific filters appearing. You can easily hide attributes for some product categories and configure whether to show them on Catalog or Search results pages.
  • SEO parameters for filters
    The module allows store administrator to specify individual SEO word for each filter. So your customers will see clear and nice-looking URL on all pages on which the filter value is selected.
  • Price sliders and numeric filters
    The implemented Range Slider lets your customers specify their own custom ranges for price, weight, size, height and other numerical attributes. Moreover, the extension allows clients to filter products by attributes with decimal or integer values.
  • Multistore support
The module can be integrated with the following Magento extensions by aheadWorks:
  • AJAX Cart Pro
    Makes Magento cart UI absolutely customer friendly by means of AJAX. Fully customizable from admin panel.
  • Advanced Search
    Replace native Magento search with Sphinx and let customers find trustworthy results.
  • Call for Price
    Replaces 'Add to Cart' button with call for price customized message encouraging visitors to contact you.
  • Catalog Permissions
    Configure the visibility of different items, product prices and even the whole categories for specified customer groups.

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

Review by Richard | Jun 30, 2014

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

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.

great product

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.

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?

Brilliant!

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.

Thumbs up!

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!

Great job!

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%)
