Multi category product lists

October 8, 2012

Jean

We just deployed the ability to display product index pages that are filtered over multiple categories. This feature is of special interest for e-commerce websites with many products and categories. For example, a bookstore can display a list of books that are in Spanish and illustrated, or a jewelry store a list of rings, on sale and under 20 dollars.

Filter products over multiple categories

How does it work?

To construct the URL of a list of products filtered over multiple categories, simply list those categories separated by a + sign after the /c/ category identifier. For example the URL /c/category1+category2+category3 would list the products that belong to the 3 categories.

  • mysite.com/products lists all products in the catalog
  • mysite.com/products/c/rings lists only products in the "rings" category category
  • mysite.com/products/c/rings+on-sale: lists only products that are in the "rings" and "on-sale" categories.
  • Append categories more as needed, there is no limit.

Note that the name and the introduction of the first category listed is used on the index page: make sure to list the most important category first!

Making the most of categories

We are also looking at making content categories more useful on UGAL. We have a few ideas on how to improve them, but now would be a good time to let us know if you have any feedback.
