To start using the Make/Model/Year add-on, make sure it is installed and enabled as described in Installing Addons from X-Cart App Store.

After the installation, go to the add-on settings page to configure it.

The add-on settings are as follows:

  • Number of levels to be used in the filter (2,3,4): Define the number of the filter levels (from 2 to 4) that you want to set up for your products.

  • Name of level X: Use the fields to define the names of the filter levels.
    The default filter names are preset to Make/Model/Year/Engine, but you can set any filter name you like better instead.

  • Maximum banner width (in case of one image): Set the width of a banner displayed on the Level Info page. The preset value is 500.

  • Maximum banner height (in case of one image): Set the height of a banner displayed on the Level Info page. The preset value is 200.

  • Use separate tab for the fitment on the product page: If enabled, the information on all vehicles using the fitment will display in a custom Fitment tab of the product details page. The Fitment tab adds automatically to product details both in the storefront and the Admin area.
    If disabled, the info will display in the main Description tab.

  • Use “Product is available for every vehicle” feature: If this feature is enabled, all products with the option “Product is available for every vehicle” enabled on the product details page will be included in all configured filters.

  • Reset filter behavior: Choose the preferred site behavior (reload the page or redirect to the homepage) when a customer clicks “Reset filter” in the storefront. The default setting is page reloading.

  • Level X sorting: Choose the order of the search results representation for the level.

  • Redirect to the search page if the landing page is not ready (description is empty): If this feature is enabled, a customer will be redirected to the regular store search page in case there is no description for the landing page that matches the customer filter choice (see "Level Info Page Setup" for more info).

  • Add selected level URLs to the categories Clean URLs: If this feature is enabled, X-Cart will add product filter data to the categories URLs if the Clean URLs feature is enabled.


    In case a store category Clean URLs has the format of https://www.your_store.com/category_1/, and the filter Clean URLs has the format of https://www.your_store.com/Audi_A4-B6_02-04_1-8_T_quattro, the category Clean URLs format with the enabled "Add selected level URLs to the categories Clean URLs" feature will become https://www.your_store.com/Audi_A4-B6_02-04_1-8_T_quattro/category_1/.


The Make/Model/Year add-on settings page also allows configuring the "Level Info" page view.

Use the Level info page view section of the module settings page to enable the info blocks that you want to be displayed on each level info page in the customer storefront:
