ok, maksus. I bought the module, it works fine.
What I'm actually looking for is something similar but with checkboxes.
Example: when I'm searching on a site with a lot of products I might want to see all the black televisions and silver but not the red, blue or whatever.
So I check the black and silver and let the rest unchecked and as a result it shows all the black and silver televisions.

Like your module though! Thanx.

 Hi Mirco.
 Ok, I understand you mean, But, I'm afraid, I do not agree with you.
 If user wants to see black TVs - he selects Black Color, if silver - Silver, white - then White, and so on. But what's the point to select all these colors at the same time? Then what is the filtering for. The whole idea of filtering fades away.

 This is just my point of view.  ;)

I agree. Select boxes eliminate multi value selection.

Hello,
I am completly new to virtuemart and if I choose it will be because I need exactly this type of filter. It looks great, but I have few questions.
1) (important)Is it possible to use the feature in order to filter by price range (eg. "from 10 to 20", "from 20 to 30", etc.);
2) Does it work properly when handling a multi-language store (I am asking because of some similar issues with zen-cart);
3)Is it possible to have it styled in a dropdown box manner (java needed, I suppose).
Thanks in advance

As far as I knowm the module cannot do that. Parameter search form has a price larger/smaller than a value users type in.
The module can be improved in this direction thought, but VM 1.1.4 already got so slow....

Hi Gang,
welcome to virtuemart community!

1. the answer yet 'no'. it won't get your price ranges automatically yet. But if you have one currency you may always create a parameter 'Price' with values: 0-100; 100-200 and so on.

2. To be honest I haven't tried multi-language functionality, but you may try with free Dummy ver. and show the results.

3. Never actually considered doing it so, because by my vision, it looks quite weak. (just my opinion!)

Had problems with setting up the module,this was my fault not any fault of the module itself.I emailed support and got an almost immediate response.Maks even had a look at my site and found the problem.
Great module
even greater support

Thanks Maks

Hi,

I am also looking for something like this, but with checkboxes to allow multiple selections.  My justification for this being that my site is a clothing site, and a customer may be want to look at a red dress for instance, and they are interested in perhaps 3 manufacturers, having multiple check boxes will allow them to do this.  Also a customer may not be sure if they want a red or black outfit, checkboxes will allow them to see results for both, as another example.

Is this something that will be easy to accomplish?

Thanks

PG

Nice Job Markus
I have a question.
How are the filters being created ?

The filters are in fact Product Types Parameters. Search the User Manuals for Product Types.
