Inconvenient navigation and a long product search process can create difficulties for users, especially with a large assortment.

Our add-on adds a block with categories to any page to improve navigation and the process of searching for products in your store. Displaying images of categories and subcategories attracts the attention of visitors. The block also provides the ability to display subcategories in the form of a partially collapsed list, which saves space on the page and provides easy navigation between categories and subcategories of goods.

Our product offers a choice of three modern presets, each with a unique design:

The Quadrato preset:

Displaying icons in a square format;

Spectacular hover animation.

Image

The Tondo preset:

Displaying icons in a round format;

Light hover animation.

Image

Lista Preset:

Displaying icons as a list;

Setting up the display of subcategories.
