To launch the module, go to the page Makeshop.pro - Filter by option (Features from option) and press the Start button.
After completing the work of the module in the Feature creation log, we will see the status OK, which means the module has successfully created the characteristics.
To check this go to the page Products - Features. Among the previously created ones, we will see new ones with the name of the group, which was indicated in the initial setup of the module.
Creating a filter and adding it to the categories page
To create a filter from the obtained characteristics, go to the Products - Filters page and click on the Add filter button.
In the window that appears, enter the Name of our future filter. And in the option Filter by select the characteristics on the basis of which the filter is created.
On the Categories tab, select the categories for which this filter will be applied. Or leave it as it is and in this case it will apply to all categories.
Now, to display the filter on the site categories pages, we need to add it to the layout. Go to the site layout Design - Layouts. Select the Categories tab.
We are looking for the block Product filters and go to its parameters. On the Content tab, add the previously created filter.
Congratulations, now the filter is displayed on the pages of your site!
