Filter by Categories
Easy to find and display products in Magento 2 layered navigation based on category and sub-categories. Simply switch the configuration between Single, Dropdown, List, or Multiple types in the Filter by Category category.
It depends on your specific store, you have full control to configure your own attribute value in the list of filterable attributes, like style, climate, color, material, pattern, or price — or a combination of values.
Visual Price Slider
UB Instant Layered Navigation allows to display price navigation as scrollable range slider, thus the customers can easily search the store catalog by price or other units of measure in the most efficient way.
Visual Color Swatch
A fast and effective way for your customers to search the store catalog. Swatches can be defined as a component of the visual color attribute or text-based value. You can also depict the color, pattern, or texture by using uploaded product images.
Instant Filter Results
UB Instant Layered Navigation displays the number of matching records found instantly, without any page reloads. When each filter option is checked and counted against every product in a category, the pagination and results sorting will be updated instantly.
Free Shop By Brand add on
Let you create a separate brand page with a handy A-Z filter quickly, a go-to destination for users to find new collections and brands that they know and trust. It lets you feature a subset of top brands on a slideshow flexibly across any CMS page, static block at your choice.
Brands in Magento 2 Layered Navigation sidebar
Allow shoppers to view products by brand in addition to attribute filters, via either visual swatch or text swatch. A robust brand admin panel gives you the ability to manage each brand page on the fly with ease.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
While preserving the attribute links to make it easy for the customers to move back and forth in the web browser, UB Instant Layered Navigation ensures all category pages visible to search engines & avoid drawbacks of duplicate content.
Compatible with any Magento 2 themes
UB Instant Layered Navigation automatically uses the existing grid view of the product list in your chosen theme. So, for the most part, this extension will integrate nicely with any Magento themes at your choice.
We’re still in the development phase of our website. And in fact I only just got products initially loaded. (We’re first launching a new brand on M2 in the next month and then will be migrating our two main websites to M2 hopefully by August.)
That said in this environment we’ve been quite happy with the Instant layered Nav extension. I’d spent quite a while comparing various ones, including the one from manadev (which we use on Magento 1 currently) yours was the only one that really delivered what we wanted performance wise.
Feature request: Would love to have icons for attributes to use in the filter. Driving force for this is actually for a custom attribute for color since our use case doesn’t work well with Magento’s built in single color selection per product (flowers can be many colors and don’t represent alternate skus). But would also be nice for many other situations say full sun vs full shade as icons in the filter.
We reviewed MANY “advanced layered navigation” modules before coming across Ubertheme’s Instant Layered Navigation, originally we were simply looking for a module to compliment our custom “part finder” module. But when we came across Ubertheme’s Instant Layered Navigation we were amazed at how fast the module behaved in our test & production environments and the filtering between thousands of products constructed from the pre-built index was effortless, taking a lot of strain away from the server!
