Can someone explain the filters

I can't figure out how to use the Filters feature. I mean I can see how to add one, but it seems like the options are extremely limited.

When I go to add a filter for one, it only shows to add categories. How do I add products instead of categories?

And then the filter by is either Google stuff or by price it seems. What am I missing here?

Products are assign through product features. Product filters are created based on product features.

Ok. So I went to go create a new feature and it also only allows you to assign categories, not products.

Basically I want to create a filter for wick-count. i.e. candles with 1 wick, candles with 2 wicks, etc. How do I do this?

Checkout the Features tab on product edit page, that is the actual value assignment place.

I created a feature called Wicks.

Added 2 categories from which a couple of candles would apply.

Checked: Show on Features Tab, Show in Product list and Show in Product Header.

And just to make sure I understand you correctly, to create filter I need to:

  1. First create a Feature
  2. Then assign the feature per product
  3. Then create the filter?

    Seems like a lot of steps just to user filters.

Also when I go to create a filter, the newly created wick feature doesn't show up in the Filter By list.

Disregard all of the above - I think I've got it working.


Could you give me step by step directions on how you created filters? Seems a little confusing, I am trying to do a brand filter but not having much luck.


A good way to start would be to check out the online demo and learn how it is done there.

  1. Product features

  2. Product filters based on product features

Thanks for the help, I got it.
