Hi Dave,

At the moment this is not possible. The filters work only on categories and immediate subcategories.

We would consider enhancing the filters to work for more than two levels of categories for the next version. However right now we have two really strong arguments against this:

1. We believe that more than two level of categories for an e-commerce website is not very user friendly and most e-shops try to avoid this. In fact you will rarely see such an organization. However in your case you have your top most category hidden. So I am wondering why this is?

2. The performance implications of having all the products from a category tree to be filtered are enormous. So if we are to implement this it would really have to be well thought of and worth the effort.

Our shop has more than 2 level categories and we are currently using version 3.4. In your ajax filter plugin, it is not showing properly if category levels are more than 2. Like in our shop we have a category like White wine >> Chardonnay & Blends >> Chardonnay. All products are mapped with Chardonnay. When we browse White wine ajax filters are not available. Can you please explain why this is happening?


We answered you on the ticket. Most probably you haven't enabled the "catalogsettings.showproductsfromsubcategories" setting and this is why you don't see the filters in the parent categories.

Hope this helps!

Excellent plugin I love it. One little thing though, our site has a large number of products. When you click the check box the ajax request is sent straight away, however I would like to add a delay so the ajax request is not sent right away.

I posted this in more detail on stack overflow. Thanks :)

Hi, I posted on another section but thought I moved it here since its specific to this plugin. We are currently running this plugin on a 4.0 site but we are having a bug that we can't quite figure out. The problem occurs when deselecting specific filters, or hitting the clear all button. This will cause the filters to "clear" but now some of the selections seem to be grayed out and unable to be selected. I've narrowed it down to a particular query string in the url causing this behavior - /pageSize=20&orderBy=0&pageNumber=1, which causes the missing filters.

However, it seems to only occur for some people and in my specific case, it was producing the error but has since seem to somehow resolve itself and now I can no longer get it to break no matter what I do. We've tried numerous browsers and versions and cannot narrow it down.

The url of the site is

The only customization we have is a custom product template that has some extra information, and some styling work that did not touch any of the classes/etc.
