Cat Filters – Virtuemart search tool

Cat Filters

Cat Filters is a Virtuemart search tool that consists of a search module and a search component.

How it Works

Suppose that each product has been assigned to multiple categories that correspond to specific attributes. Cat filters gives the oportunity to the end user to search products selecting multiple categories. For example a filter named “Type” consists of the categories: T-shirts, Coats, Blouses, a filter named “Occasion: consists of categories: Formal, Casual, Sport. The end user could get the desired results combining those 2 filters.

CatFilters is offering another great feature, the creation of Range Filters. You can create Ranges for Prices , Dimensions and Weights.

Plus to these is also offering Manufacturer filtering , Keywords search and custom Price filtering (From,To). All these could be combined together or can be used separately.
