Hi all how can i change a list of attributes from filtered navigation into a dropdown menu? Does not seem to be a standard option in the attributes field?

im using rwd template. many thanks Chris


You can edit the app/design/frontend/[package]/[theme]/template/catalog/layer/* files

  • view.phtml is used to list all the filter (attributes or categories) filterables. It includes filter.phtml for all filter.
  • filter.phtml is used to render all the option of a filter
  • state.phtml is used to render the active filters

You can change the DOM rendering of the layered filters in these files

  • Hi Pilou, thanks for this - any specific code to share? – chrisAVF Mar 19 '15 at 11:36
  • It depends on what you want to do exactly. Do you want filters to be rendered as dropdown ? Do you want filter options to be shown as dropdown ? How do you want your active filters to show, etc. – Pilou Mar 19 '15 at 11:41
  • yes i want all the filter info to be as individual dropdowns – chrisAVF Mar 19 '15 at 14:07
