Attributes

How Tos (2)

You can find this section under Products > Attributes in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

Here you can define the attributes that can be assigned to products on your website. In turn, you can apply values to attributes using the Attribute Values section which will allow customers to filter their searches and selections to find suitable products based on specific criteria.

Examples of common attributes include:

  • Age group
  • Colour
  • Gender
  • Material
  • Size

The main Attributes.aspx page appears as follows

Attribute Filters

Attribute filters appear on the front end as shown below. For these to appear, make sure that you have enabled the Show Left Nav Attributes Menu Application Setting (and any other settings in the ‘Left Nav Product Filter’ group of Application Settings) and also that you have set the Display Orders correctly:

You can show only items that are in stock by enabling the Appliation Setting Left Nav Attributes Menu Show In Stock Only Filter. This will be displayed as follows:

Note that if a customer directly enters a model ID for an out-of-stock product, even with the in-stock filter box ticked, the system will bypass any search filters and will display that model’s page.

How To Guides (2)

FAQs (1)

How can I show attributes only for in-stock items?
You can enable the ‘Left Nav Attributes Menu Show In Stock Only Filter’ Application Setting (‘Left Nav Product Filter’ grouping ) which will display a check box in the left nav for filtering results by those that are in stock only. This in turn will filter the number of attributes in the left nav.
