Hi,
We have a customer who would like the ajax filters to include categories. Is this possible?

Thanks,

Hi Greg,

The Ajax Filters now work in the context of a given category, so it doesn't make sense to filter by category as the filtered products are already filtered by the current category.
Maybe you are talking about when you have subcategories but please elaborate more on this one?

Thanks

The customer sells parts for whitegoods products. The products are categorised - 'Vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, dryers, microwaves etc'
They would like a filter that allows their customers to select the category, then manufacturer, then by attributes. Eg: Vacuum cleaner, Electrolux, compatible model number 123456.
Thanks,
Greg

Hi gkennedy1,

Thank you for the clarification!
It seems like these are a bit different Ajax Filters.
We have seen this on a lot of specialized web sites for i.e Cars, Tyres, Phones etc.
You can select from a main dropdown and based on the selection you can select from a second dropdown, which is populated based on the previous selection.
We don't think the current implementation of the Ajax Filters can work this way without some significant modifications to them. This functionality could be useful for a lot of businesses running their stores on nopCommerce.
Would you mind suggesting it in our UserVoice portal and let other vote for it and we will see if there are any interest in it we can think of implementing such a plugin.
