With the emergence of a large number of eCommerce websites which offer numerous products on a single platform, it becomes difficult for the customers to make the purchase decision correctly and timely. This asks for an improved and clear navigation on the store to facilitate browsing the product as easy and fast as possible.
The Layered Navigation is a tool which simplifies the product search as per their category, color, price and other such attributes. The Advance Layered Navigation extension developed by M-Connect Media helps the customers with the correct product search and saves a lot of time and efforts. By helping customers in narrowing down the product searches to find the desired one, you offer a pleasant user experience and achieve the customer’s satisfaction.
The extension offers a better experience by allowing your customers to select more than one option of the same attribute. The customers can even prioritize the search results under the desired price range or as per the product ratings or reviews. This ultimately shows that the customers will save a lot of time searching the product and concentrate more on buying multiple products at a time from your store.
In the layered navigation extension developed previously, the system shows the result once any customer selects one option from a filter. This made people frustrated if they wanted to choose multiple options to filter the search results. After installing the Advance Layered Navigation and done with some configuration part, your customers can select multiple options of the same filter and then choose to see the result with just one click.
The extension gives the freedom to the admin to select the various filters with drag and drop features from the list and display them on the category or search results page as per the product category. It also allows choosing a location to display the filters on the search page. By enabling the Stock Filter from the admin, the owners can permit their customers to choose in-stock or out of stock products displayed with the results.
If the customers want to start a fresh product search, they can remove all the selected options and then again choose the options as per the requirement. Long story short, you can provide your customers a better product search feature with narrowing down the search results to find their desired products at a lesser time.
Functionality Included in Extension
ENABLE/DISABLE THE EXTENSION ON FRONTEND
Select 'Yes' to enable this extension on the store front.
PRICE RANGE WITH PRICE SLIDER
With the Advance Layered Navigation extension, you can change the default price range filter into a slider bar with the minimum and maximum price. This feature will enable the customers to search the product as per the price range they want. They just need to slide the bar to set the price range to look for the desired product.
There is also the numeric attribute below the slider bar. The customers can also manually enter the price range by defining the minimum and maximum amount in the ‘From’ and ‘To’ blank. So, you can offer both the features by just activating the Price slider feature from the Magento 2 admin panel.
Time and speed matter a lot over online shopping stores. The Advance Layered Navigation extension for Magento 2 updates the search results immediately after applying the filter options selected without making the whole page reload. This functionality saves time in showing the results and hence, improves the performance of the store.
You can enhance the effect of layered navigation by enabling AJAX feature from the backend.
SELECT THE FILTER TYPE
The filter processes through two ways in the Layered Navigation: Auto or Manual.
The Auto type of filter shows automatically show the result after selecting options of the filters. With this feature, the customers will be allowed to select options from filters one by one. On the other hand, the Manual filter type offers the selection of a number of options. Once the options are selected, one pop up will appear to show the number of items matching the selected options with a button to Show.
SET THE FILTER LOCATION
With this extension, the admin can solely choose the location for the filters to display on the frontend. The Filter Location feature offered by the extension gives two locations, i.e. Sidebar and Toolbar. The admin can select either of them to locate the filters on the store.
DISPLAY PRICE OUT OF RANGE ERROR MESSAGE
The price slider functionality of the extension offers the customers to choose the price range either by the slider bar or manually enter the price range. In the slider bar, the minimum and maximum amount is automatically taken by the system based on the products with lowest and highest cost.
But, in the ‘From-To’ widget customers enter the amount as per their need. In case the customer has entered a wrong amount, i.e. amount lesser than the minimum or higher than the maximum, the system will show an error message mentioning that the entered price is out of range.
The admin can easily define or manage the error message from the admin panel.
CHANGE THE LOADER IMAGE
As soon as the customers select options of the attributes and apply to show the result, a loader image appears on the page while updating the search results as per applied filters and then it disappears with the display of customized search results. In the below image, you can see the effect and appearance of a loader image over the page.
It is the default loader image, but you can add your own image by choosing the file for this feature in the admin panel.
ENABLE/DISABLE RATING FILTER ON STORE FRONT
If you receive reviews and ratings from the customers for the products they bought and used, you can display them on the store front on the relevant product pages. The reviews and ratings also play a role in making the purchase decision for the other customers. This extension allows you to add a rating filter to help customers sort the products based on the ratings.
ENABLE/DISABLE STOCK FILTER ON THE FRONTEND
The customers feel frustrated when they search the products and at the end, they find that the product which they wanted to purchase is out of stock. This event can make a not so good shopping experience on your store. The layered navigation extension offers the stock filter to sort the products as per their availability in the store. The customers can choose to see the products based on their stock and subscribe to the products notification, which is not available at point of time.
CHOOSE THE LIST OF ATTRIBUTES TO SHOW FOR FILTER
The Layered Navigation extension offers the feature of the filter lists selection. You can select multiple filters from the list. For adding the filters in the selected list, just drag the filter and drop it in the selected field’s column.
With this feature, you can specify various filters as per different categories. The selected filters will only appear with the relevant product categories. By showing the relevant filters with the category products, you can make the buyers search the products in a short time.
REMOVE ALL THE SELECTED OPTIONS
It may happen that the customers or visitors on your store want to filter the products using other filters or attribute. The extension offers the Clear All feature with which the customers can remove all the selected filters at once by clicking on ‘Clear All’ option under the ‘Now Shopping By’ block.

Almost PerfectI run a clothes and accessories store online in New Zealand using Magento. With the latest updates to Magento 2, we have tried similar extension from another vendor and failed the integration due to some technical issues.
We came to know about M-Connect team and requested to solve the issue by installing their extension. The same errors have arrived, but the team has configured the server and solved the issue permanently.
