Hi,

 

Say you have two categories A & B, that could be considered of equal 'status' because they're different ways of describing the same product with a different concept.

 

Maybe customers would choose 50/50 between these categories to initiate a product search.

 

Category A --> subcategories [ a1, a2, a3 ........ ]

Category B --> subcategories [ b1, b2, b3 ........ ]

 

**************************************************************

 

 

If category A / ai is chosen by visitors then it's required that visitors can filter for bi

If category B / bi is chosen by visitors   "    ....         .....            ....        "   filter for ai

 

In other words the creation of category specific filters of another category

 

 

**************************************************************

 

One way, I think, would work would be to 'mirror' these categories as feature-filters with

the extra admin overhead.

 

There are some mods out there that are described as 'Categories as filters' but they have a

different functionality.

 

Would anyone know of a custom mod that would automates this task?

 

*************************************************************

 

if you got this far!

 

appreciate any advice,
