I am setting up my webshop and i try to assign a color to a product. Lets say one of my product has the colors pink and black (NOTE: They are NOT seperately available in pink OR black, those are just colors the product is made of). I try to find a way to let the product page say it contains the colors pink and black, and to have it in the left menu of webshop where you can categorize on color. So when you pick pink, all products containing pink will show.
Please let me know if this is possible, and please explain how. Would be veryyyy helpful !
(sorry for the bad english )
It sounds to me that you need to have colors "PInk/Black", "Pink", and "Black". I think this will work. Please let me know!
No bad English, everything is great
I think you need to create another attribute for color and its type should be Multi-select - in the product settings you will be able to indicate many colors for this product and they will all will display in the layered navigation on the left (this is what we call it here ). Don't forget to change the "Use in layered navigation" option to "Filterable with results" in your new color attribute settings and include this new attribute to the required attribute set.
Hope it helps!
Thanks a lot for your answer. I made a new attribute with the multiselect option. Now its possible for me to select multiple colors (Great ), but for the customer it isnt. In the shop i can only select one color, it reloads, and all the other color options disappear. So i wont be possible to show all purple & pink product. Just pink or purple.. How can I fix this?
You need to use a heavier artillery here because by default Magento doesn't have the multiple select option in layered navigation. I'm not sure if you are ready to customize the code yourself, so maybe this extension by Mango can help. I never tried it but judging from the screenshots it looks like what you need. The only thing is that all attributes are actually drop-downs but maybe this can be configured in the settings. I'd just recommend contacting them to clarify this.
Also here's one more multiple-select for filters but there is an important detail: when customer has selected a color - the page is reloaded and the filtered products are displayed, and after this the customer can select one more color. Basically customer selects them one by one rather than ticking all of them and clicking some "Filter" button. But on the other hand - it's free
Thanks a lot for the suggestion!
I just installed the 'multiple select for filter'. Works well inough for me! Only one problem left: For some reason the number of product appear on the next line instead of next to the attribute. I added a picture to show whats wrong. Do you have any idea how to fix this?
