Hi Guys,

I'm new to magento, and I'm trying to figure out the way to add a section like this to my theme,

I tried google, but all I found was a way to add the custom attributes to sorting in product page like this

Any idea how to get it to the sidebar like in here ?

    Accepted Solution

    the layout you want is called "layered navigation". It is only available when viewing products in a category, and you must also have the category set as "is_anchor" = Yes.
