Facets were designed to be ways in which customers can filter your products. These appear on the product search results left-hand side bar. 


How to use Facets for Best Results and Customer Experience


It is generally a good idea to limit the amount of values within your facets. If there are more than a few hundred values, the facet is no longer useful as a filter.


You can also customize which facets are displayed and in what order they appear.


You can learn how to do this by reading this article: Customizing Facets for the Product Search Side Bar


Adding Facets


You can add as many facets as you want in Products > Taxonomy > Facet Options.  The first box is an auto-complete for the facet name; the value can be anything you want.


Merge two Facets


  1. delete old facet from product_facet_categories
  2. in product_facet_options, if the facet_value does NOT already exist the new facet, change product_facet_id
  3. if facet value DOES exist,
    • update product_facet_values and set old product_facet_option_id to new one
    • delete record from product_facet_options
  4. update product_facet_values and change product_facet_id from old to new
  5. delete old product facet from product_facets


Merge Facet options


  1. Update product_facet_values and change old product_facet_option_id to new one
  2. delete old value from product_value_options
