I am looking to buy a module (or if there is free one) to improve layered navigation.

I am looking for something with fast filtering, SEO, multiple selections (I sell wheels so might need to select 17" and 18". Default navigation wont allow this)

Does anyone have experience of a improved navigation system to suggest? I am happy to buy one but want to make sure I am getting the right thing for the money.


You have quite a few options to work with. First of all why doens't Magento default layered navigation allow you to use wheel size as a filtering option. If you configure your attribute as a select input and specify the values you are able to use it as a filtering option.

If you mean that you want to make it possible to select multiple wheelsizes you do need to extend the default Magento functionality. A great free extension is: multiple select in layered navigation

If you're looking for a complete Layered Navigation system that will seriously improve your webshops' filtering functionality I suggest you have a look at the Mandev extension (pricy but worth it in my opinion): Mandev Layered Navigation

**I'm not invested in any of these extensions just a happy user

  • Thank you. That is exactly the answer I was after. The standard filters are ok but as you say I need customers to select multiples and not just the one option. I did try that free extension already but the filtering took forever (in fact I think it just locked up and never loaded the available products) I will take a look at the paid system you linked to. Thanks for the help! – Steve Nov 7 '15 at 14:13
