It depends what type of attribute it is but if you edit the attribute through the admin area, if available there will be options to allow in layered navigation.

 

Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes

Hi iweb_smartie!
Thanks for your suggestion but I don't want attribute in layered navigation. It is already there in admin area as you mentioned. I want custom option which I have added at the time of ADD product. There is only option to give name like size ,data type such as text ,radio button,drop down etc.

Hi.

 

Sorry i misunderstood. It is not possible to add custom options to the layered navigation. One solution, albeit a bit messy, would be to create the custom options as attributes as well and have the same values in there. That does double up on the work you would have to do to create a product though so you could take it further and have a custom module that creates and updates attributes automatically based on the custom option choices.

 

Hope that helps a little more than my previous reply Smiley Happy
