  • Two ways to show layered navigation above products

    • Horizontal Laid Filters - filters are placed one by one horizontally. If main column is too narrow to show all filters, they will be arranged in two or even more lines:

    This extension is especially useful for sites without sidebars. If products are displayed in full page width the ony place for layered navigation is above product list - and this extension is just for that.
