    Display Category Search Facets on CTGY Page

    I would like to display the Category Facets that display on the SRCH Page on the CTGY Page. Am I doing something wrong? Are the supposed to display there or only on the SRCH and PLST pages? Maybe I'm approaching this wrong?

    Hi Leslie, Did you ever find an answer to this?

    I'm trying to assign a SRCH page to a category but the search_results array is coming up NULL.

    All the category entities are available and the facets with multi text are populating.

    I just can't get the search_results array to populate even with the page filters turned off.

    Any ideas?


      The facets will work on any product list including the category page. Do you have the facets item assigned to CTGY and the item on the page:

      <mvt:item name="facets" />

      I would create a new branch and apply shadows so you can see the default code needed for this to output on category pages, but that is the default in Miva. You also need to standard facets module installed under utilities to enable facets in general.

        The tip that facets work with any product list got me in the right direction. I tried it with all_products and category_listing arrays and they both worked. Thank you.

        I have product variants that I use for image swapping. I have their attributes included in the facet settings, visible and applied, and would like to display and filter them. Are product variants with images included in the arrays? (I know that the product variants are inactive but double checking.)
