Product filters allow your customers to narrow down a category of products in a variety of ways including brand, size, colour, or any of your custom attributes. Your customers can also choose to display products within a specific price range allowing their customers to find exactly what they are looking for with ease.
1. Product filters are enabled at category level, to do this select the edit icon next to the category which you would like to enable product filters on and select product filters from the left menu.
Although most themes on EKM support product filters, there are a small number of them which need to be edited slightly in order to support the feature.
2. If your current theme does not support product filters then a small notification box will appear at the top of this page to let you know. If you are experienced in editing the HTML code you can add the Tag [ekm:filter_by] to your theme where you would like the product filters to be displayed. More information on this can be found by clicking the link in the notification box.
3. To enable product filters, tick the boxes next to the items you want your customers to be able to filter your products by. If you want to include a price filter select the Display a price filter box, which will allow your customer to filter products within a specific price range.

4. When you have selected all the options you want to enable product filtering on, click the Save and Close button to return to your shop. Your product filters will now be activated in the category you have applied them too.
