The CloudFilters extension of the CloudSearch add-on aims to narrow down search results and help your customers navigate a large list of products to find items matching certain filtering criteria. In addition, filters will be dynamically adjusted to your customers’ needs, automatically updating the count values to reflect the current search's correct number of terms.
Filters are displayed on a category/subcategory page, search page, and brands page (if the add-on Shop by Brand is enabled).
Filters are shown dynamically based on the content of the page on which they are displayed. Accordingly, the filters for one category will not be the same as the filters for another category, and both of them will differ from the filters displayed on the search page.
The filter sets displayed on a page are automatically narrowed down and built based on the relevant product attributes, product tags, and vendor info. The selected filters are saved in the URL to easily share a link to the filtered list of products. It is not only handy for the users but may also be advantageous for SEO.
Once a filter has been applied, all the images and prices are updated at once.
