This is a category called BBQ, on the left hand side I have "Shop By" Price and Manufacturer, 

I want to add another attribute here called "Type" where to show that the product is one of this types : Gas BBQ, Charcoal BBQ, Smoker, Accessories!

 

Can somebody help me with that please. 

Thank you!

Hi @cristian_weszer,

 

I guess you'll find this link useful: https://docs.magento.com/m2/ce/user_guide/catalog/navigation-layered-filterable-attributes.html

 

There you'll see how to configure the layered navigation and how to set up the attributes to be used with your products.

Re: Adding attributes

Hi @cristian_weszer,

 

Now you need to add the attribute to the attribute set, and then assign a value to that attribute for products under that category.

Can you check that?

Also, is your category set as "Is anchor" = "Yes" ?

Re: Adding attributes

I didn't really get how to add the attribute to the attribute set... should I just click on "add new set"?

Re: Adding attributes

Hi @cristian_weszer,

 

Try adding your new attribute to the default attribute set.

 

https://docs.magento.com/m2/ce/user_guide/stores/attribute-sets.html

 

You don't need (you can, but you don't need) to create a new attribute set. At least you are currently using several attribute sets add it to the defualt set.
