New template looks great!
Could you elaborate a bit on the home page filters in terms of how they work? It looks like there is some dependencies on these specifications.
Again... fantastic job
This will be released as a separate plugin next week - Ajax Filters Pro.
This new plugin will extend the standard Ajax Filters plugin capabilities with the widget on the home page (it could be placed everywhere you want). It allows you a very fast search based on all products in the store. When the user selects a category it will then populate the Manufacturers dropdown with all the available manufacturers in that category and so on. Then you can select a specification (optional) and narrow down your search. The specification are also calculated dinamically based on the already filtered products, so you won't see a specification option that does not exist in the set of filtered products. It also shows you the number of products found after each filtration. And finally it redirects you to the category(manufacturer) page and loads the standard Ajax Filters to show only the filtered products. We will provide a nice demo with a lot of detailed explanation next week about the plugin. You will also be able to play with the administration of the plugin.
Hope this helps!
