PrestaShop 1.5.x. How to manage “Layered Navigation” module

  1. You can see the Layered Navigation module on the screenshot below.


  2. You need to place the module in the appropriate position in case it does not appear on your PrestaShop. You can go to Modules -> Positions in order to check and set module positions. Please find the information on how to manage module positions in the PrestaShop 1.5.x. How to manage modules positions tutorial.

  3. In order to manage the module, you should go to Modules -> Modules and search for the Layered Navigation module. Click on Configure.


  4. You can rebuild indexes in the Indexes and caches section.

  5. You can use the existing Filter template or add a new one. We are going to build a new filter template. In the Select Categories section, you can set the categories for which the filter will appear. In our case, the filter template will be applied to all categories. Select the appropriate filter and it will be added to your filter template. Each filter has corresponding options. Please select the suitable value. You can also set the limit value – the limit of items. For example, you may set the limit for sub categories that will appear in your Layered Navigation. Save the filter template.


  6. In the Configuration section, you can set module configuration (it will be applied to all filter templates). Please find the screenshot of module configuration options below.


  7. Refresh the page and check how your site looks. Below is the screenshot of modified Layered Navigation.
