Hi guys, I'm very new with magento and I appreciate a little bit of help please.
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.
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.
Make sure attribute type is drop-down or multiple select.
Make sure attribute show in layer navigation yes.
hope it will help you.
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" ?
I didn't really get how to add the attribute to the attribute set... should I just click on "add new set"?
Try adding your new attribute to the default attribute set.
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.
