Filter Categories at brand or store level

Guest shared this feature

February 9, 2019

I think this would be useful if not critical to stores who have brand or store pages. For example.

Balenciaga (Brand)
ASOS (Store)

To be able to filter various types of categories for those attributes.

At the moment if you click Balenciaga as a brand and scroll to category its blank as there are no children, but at the top level if you click t-shirts, in the sidebar under “Brand” Balenciaga will show, as there are t-shirts for Balenciaga..

Same for ASOS, as ASOS is a merchant (store) attribute for us, you navigate to Stores – ASOS, you’re presented with an ASOS page showing the various products, navigate to Categories and it is blank, again there are no children, but at top level if you again click t-shirts, jumpers or whatever it may be, under Merchant (Store) ASOS has them products.

Is this possible?

    I think I understand what you are saying:

    If user clicks ‘red’, but has not clicked a category (if you allow this) then the category list should be restricted to ‘red’ products. That’s already achievable.

    Currently, when I test this on foundthru.com, I see all the categories – i.e. not restricted to the attributes at all. That’s the intended behaviour. The categories are more like top-level-pages really – and the default behaviour is to reset all attribute filters when a category is selected.

    You can change this behaviour by altering the widget settings – which I’ve just done now – so that if you visit:


    You see only the category of ‘dogs’ since that’s the only category containing ‘beef’ products.
