Hi all,

I found this here: http://magento.stackexchange.com/questions/3675/filter-by-products-custom-options-or-set-diffrent-op...

 

I have 90% text fields Smiley Frustrated Smiley Happy)

 

Is there not an another way for text fields, or have I to change every item attribute to dropdown?

Re: Custom Options In Layered Navigation

Hi

I'm afriad that out of the box it has to be dropdown/multiselect to be shown in the layered navigation.

 

There are extensions out there that can convert them for you; or you could do it by directly editing the database.

 

I wouldn't advise editing the database directly unless you're comfortable with how EAV works in Magento though.

One question else:

 

Can we add select boxes? It will be look better..

Re: Custom Options In Layered Navigation

I added now colors but they are to much, I will show it as a bar, maybe 5 pieces, the others to see you have to scroll. 

How can I do this?
