Product attributes categorized

Now you can use public categories to group product attributes

Odoo CMS - a big picture

Main features:

  • easy and fast linking of attributes to public categories (website e-commerce categories);
  • default set is to remove all filter attributes from categories links
  • smart select of filter attributes (see below): Customize > Smart Product Attribute's Filter
  • main product category (i.e. "All Products") always clears the filter
  • only linked attributes are shown in website;
  • attributes' filter is always active on list of available attributes;
  • when no category is selected no attributes are shown;
  • child categories don't get its parent category attributes;
  • it is possible to link a single attribute to many categories.

When adding attributes to a product, not each of them is convenient for filtering the products. Using this Odoo app you can filter only by linked attributes. Each public category has its own list of linked attributes.

How to link attributes to public categories:

Linking product attributes to "website category" is done from "Sales > Product Categories & Attributes > Public Product Categories". The form is modified and there is now a list of attributes that are linked to the selected public category. See the screenshot below.

Smart select of filter attributes

You selected some attributes to filter product's list in a category. While loading, each category's URL in category list is prepared in such a way, that only common attributes are selected.

This way not relevant attributes are automaticaly removed, so you won't see empty list because of the irrelevant attribute filter in different category.

Odoo text and image block attributes and their values are set for "category"
Odoo text and image block category "Others" with relevant attributes only
Odoo text and image block category "Others" loaded with only relevant filter
category "category" will use only this attribute, because other is cleared

Each category with own list of attributes

This way it's possible to show only appropriate attributes' filter.

It allows to have more complex product's categories tree.

Hello, I would like to test this... Can you make a runbot ? Thanks

Odoo
App works as expected, if the app "Collapsible product categories in website shop" is not installed. If this is the case, the filters get not cleared when changing the category, as I have mentioned in my first comment.

I give it a 5 star, when the following improvement is realized: Please empty the filter whenever another category of the same level or higher is selected. The regular user does not know that he has to select "All products" in order to delete the filter and when he clicks another category, the products list is either empty or results in an Internal Server Error 500.
