I have updated the filters to show as a dropdown menu, rather than an . I updated template/catalog/layer/filter.phtml to be:
<select onchange="setLocation(this.value)"> <option selected ="selected"><?php echo $this->__('sshhh') ?></option> <?php foreach ($this->getItems() as $_item): ?> <?php if ($_item->getCount() > 0): ?> <option value="<?php echo $this->urlEscape($_item->getUrl()) ?>"><?php echo $_item->getLabel() ?></option> <?php endif; ?> <?php endforeach ?> </select>
Problem: The filter disappears once selected and is added to the 'Currently Shopping By' section
Objective: I'd like the filter dropdown to persist, even when one of the filter items has been selected. (I'd also like the dropdown to automatically pre-select whichever attribute filter is currently active, if any. But I can do this bit, I think)
Help: How do I keep a filter displayed, even when one of the filter items is selected? I've traced the route back to the core files, but at no point does it seem to 'hide' selected/active filters, it seems.
