For an online store, it is important to let the customers filter the products effectively in the product listing page. Now, it’s possible to improve your product listing page with the following product filters box module for the bootstrap template.
It’s easy to install this module for your TomatoCart system because I had implemented an auto installation script for it.
Step 1. Download the product-filters.zip
Step 2. Unzip it and copy the following directories and files into your TomatoCart root directory.
You need to override the directories and files if your copy process request confirmation.
Step 3. Run the auto-installation script
1. Make sure the includes/database_tables.php in your tomatocart root directory is writable by your web server because the auto-installation script will write the database tables into it. You should change the file permission to 775 via ftp.
2. Enter www.yoursite.com/filters.php to run the installation script. After the installation, you will see the following message:
Step 4. Go to Admin Panel > Start Menu > Products > Products Filters to add the filters.
You could change the value of the sort order field to adjust the sequence of the groups and filters displayed in the store front.
Step 5. Link the filters to the categories
Step 6. Link the filters to the products
After linking the filters to the categories, you have to link the filters to the products too. When the customer access the categories and filter the products with the filters, the products with the correct filters linked will be display in the filtered product listing.
Step 7. Install the product filters box under Start Menu > Templates > Templates Modules > Boxes > filters.
You could enable or disable the show product count and cache the contents options in it.
Step 8. Set template layout the product filters box under Start Menu > Templates > Templates Modules Layout > Boxes.
Now, when you access the store font, you will an elegant products filter box as below.
After clicking the white color filter, the products will be filtered.
