Configure Filters and Sorters Settings per Website 

To configure filters and sorting options per website:

  1. Navigate to System > Websites in the main menu.

  2. For the necessary website, hover over the More Options menu to the right of the necessary website and click to start editing the configuration.

  3. Select Commerce > Catalog > Filters and Sorters in the menu to the left.


    For faster navigation between the configuration menu sections, use Quick Search.

  4. The following configuration options are available:

    • Hide Unrelated Product Filters and Sorting Options - removes unrelated filters and sorting options from the product collection page to display only those attributes that belong to the current product family. When a user adjusts the search to target the product with the desired attribute, but the attribute is no longer applicable, it gets removed from the filter.

    • Don’t Change Initial Filter State - disables unrelated attributes within a filter. When applying a filter to the initial product data set in the storefront, all unrelated attributes remain visible but become disabled in the filter dropdown.


      This option affects filters in the storefront only when Hide Unrelated Product Filters and Sorting Options is enabled. Please ensure to enable both options for this configuration.

    • Default Filter Panel State - controls the visibility of the filters applied to the product grids in the storefront. The filter panel can be either expanded to show all filter bars or collapsed to reduce the screen space. In this case, the collapsed filters are substituted with the text representation of all applied filters.

    • Filter Panel Position — enables to select the required position of the filter bar in the storefront. There are two options available:

      When Top (default) is selected, the filter bar is displayed on the top of the product listing page.

  6. Click Save Settings.
