Customize the display of your filter trees

To edit the display of your filter trees:

1. From the app’s admin, go to Filter > Filter settings.

2. In the Filter section under the Display settings heading, select one or multiple options to customize how your filter tree is displayed on your storefront.

  • Show product count: Selecting this option displays quantities on each filter value.
  • Show "Refine by" block: When this option is selected, your customers can view which criteria the currently displayed product list is filtered by. This block provides them with easy access to deselect and edit applied filters when needed. 

  • Show all irrelevant values (product count = 0): By enabling this setting, your customer can see that you have the product that matches a particular filter value, even when its quantity is zero. 

    Note: This feature only works if you select Manual in the drop-down of Option values when setting up any filter option. 

  • Shorten URL when selecting multiple filter option values: When filtering products by selecting multiple values, long-form URLs can be untidy to your customers. This setting helps you reduce the length and complexity of those URLs to let search engines know what your page is about.

  • Hide filter options with only one filter option value: When you use this setting, your filter tree will not contain a filter that comes with only one filter value.
  • Keep filter options collapsed status after filtering: With a filter option that you have already set collapsed when setting it up in the Manage filter trees section, this option will make sure that it stays collapsed after each filter value your customers select.
  • Change label of Refine by button on mobile when tapping on it: Once you are done selecting filter option values on your phone, enabling this feature will help you to collapse all filter options to display clear filtered products, thus providing a better shopping experience.
  • In the Clear cache of Swatch images section, you can try the Clear Cache button whenever the swatch settings that you set up in your filter trees do not work correctly.

3. Click Save settings.

Customize the display of your product list

Every time your customers select a filter value, the product list will be updated instantly. Our app allows you to edit the product list for optimum user experience.

To edit the display of your product list:

1. From the app’s admin, go to Filter > Filter settings.

2. In the Product list section under the Display settings heading, select one or multiple options to customize how the product list is displayed when your customers filter products.

  • Show loading icon when filtering: The setting shows the loading icon when your product list is updating after a filter value is selected.
  • Show scroll to top button: Your product list will have a button that allows your customers to quickly return to the top of long pages.
  • Sort available products first: This setting allows you to display available products first and out-of-stock items will be arranged at the bottom of your product list.
  • Use canonical URLs for product pages: Canonical URLs are important because Google will only index canonical URLs. When Google search engines crawl many URLs with identical (or nearly identical) content, your website's SEO can be affected. By selecting this option, search engines will be told which version of a URL you want to appear in your search results and improve the search engine ranking for your store. 

  • Out-of-stock display options: In this drop-down, you can choose to show or hide out-of-stock products in your product list. The app also provides you an option to only hide out-of-stock products after your customers select a filter value. This feature does not work with “tag” and “Metafield” filter options. 

Note: In this drop-down, when you select Hide out-of-stock products/variants and you notice some products with out-of-stock variants still show up in the product list, then you can take the following steps: 

1. From your Shopify admin, go to Products.

2. Click the name of the product which has variants that have sold out but still show up in the product list.

3. In the Variants section, select all variants that you want to hide from the product list.

4. Click More actions and select Stop selling when out of stock.

5. Click Save.

6. Check if the product which has those variants still shows up in the product list.

  • Show matched variant image by filter option: By selecting this setting, when filtering products by a specific value, the result products will be displayed in the product list with corresponding variant images. In your filter tree, you can apply this setting to one filter option at a time. You can decide which one in the drop-down of Show matched variant image by filter option. This setting only applies to height/title/color/size filter options. 

    Note: If you want to apply this setting to more than one filter option at a time, feel free to contact us at for further support.

  • Pagination type: In this drop-down, you can decide how your customers can see more of the product list when they scroll to the bottom of the page.
    • Pagination: By choosing this option, the product list will be split into multiple pages, each containing a fixed number of items.
    • Note: By default, our app displays up to 70 products to utilize the page performance and user experience.
    • Infinite loading: Your storefront will present a single product-listing page that loads more items as your customers scroll down the page.
    • Load more: This option provides your customers with Load more buttons at the bottom of the product listing pages. Your customers will click the button to load the next set of products.
  • Sorting (only available when your store is using the App Lib V1): This feature lets you add sort functionality to the product list with 9 sorting options when customers interact with the filter tree set up by our app. You can set up product sort by title, price, creation date, relevance, and bestseller
    • Within the Sorting field, you can modify how the sorting options list will be displayed in the product list by adding/removing options based on your needs, dragging and dropping them to your desired order.
    • It is worth noting that based on this article, best-selling products are based on the all-time number of orders that include the product. If you haven't sold any products yet, then this option sorts your products from newest to oldest. To make this sorting option work smoothly, we encourage you to follow this guide to sync the proper best-selling order on all the themes that are configured with our app. If you still have trouble implementing this feature, contact us at right away. 
    • When you want to set up product sort by publish date, vendor, Metafield, review, and any other attribute, you can contact us at for further details.
    • We encourage you to upgrade your store to the App Lib V2. The version comes with more advanced features that let you update the default sort order on search results pages and collection pages, and tailor sorting options so that they can better adapt to your business strategies. All the features are accessible from the app's admin.
