Creating custom filters on Shopify

You can create your own filters (custom filters) and use them in the Search Results Widget or Filters on collections. A custom filter is based on a standard filter, but it contains specific filter values, unlike a standard one. It can be especially helpful for filters based on tags.

To create a custom filter, follow these steps:

Step 1. Create a custom filter

  1. Go to Smart Search & Filter control panel > Filters section > General tab.
  2. Click the + button in the top-right corner.
  3. Enter Filter title – it will be displayed in the storefront.
  4. Select the standard filter in the Based on drop-down list.
  5. Click the Continue button.

As a result, the custom filter will be created without values.

Step 2. Add values for the created filter

  1. Click the + button.
  2. Select filter values. You can use the filter in the top-right corner to search the values.

    Note

    These values won’t be excluded from standard filters.

  3. Add the selected values to the filter.
  4. Optionally, manage the added values: delete values or change their Display name and save the changes.

That’s it. The new custom filter is now displayed on the storefront.
