Navigation - the heart of any website

Customers should clearly see the path from your website entrance to the product they are looking for. If this path is not simple and obvious, customers will get lost and your store's bounce rate will increase. It's enough to use clear and modern Magento navigation to increase revenue, because user-friendly websites become favorite and are used more often. That's why it's very important to enable Magento layerd navigation in your store and make customers willingly plunge into the world of shopping with a handy top navigation menu.

Affordable and nice extensionReview by Robert Ragas
Overall extension rating
I like the extension because its affordable for smaller sites compared to the gomage advanced navigation. Also love the fact that its seo optimized. Only thing that I missed was the url when you show attributenames (it uses the english names instead of your own label and I don't wanna use the english attribute names in the url).

Last the support was helpfull and responds within 1/2 days.

I recommend this extension. (Posted on 8/29/13)

Replace underscores with hyphensReview by mariner702
Overall extension rating
I’m using the CE version. Currently, there’s an underscore that separates the words in the URL. Say for example, “fox_sports.” How can I change it so that a hyphen separates the words in the URL so that it will read, “fox-sports?” Google sees the underscore as a word connector and the hyphen as a word separator. This will help in SEO. Please provide a solution. (Posted on 5/5/13)
Great support serviceReview by unkleara
Overall extension rating
There are many extensions that can do the job, but one of the more important factors to consider is support and Amasty has delivered so far. I have dealt with companies that say they offer support, but when you send them an email asking for help with their own extension they try to find ways to squeeze some extra cash for support. These guys aren't that kind of company. I sent a request for an issue with the extension and a custom theme I was using and received a response saying that I would need to wait a couple weeks until the programmer familiar with the extension/issue would be back from vacation to help. Which was understandable, but just a bit later that day I received an email from Alexander to resolve my problem. He took his time while on vacation to help me out. Definitely will prioritize you guys before others. It's good when a company keeps their word, but really nice when they go out of their way to help.

Thanks,
Ara,

I would definitely recommend this product, both because of the quality of it (does what it says on the tin) and the superb support. I had an issue with the installation over a weekend and by Monday morning, Amasty support had used a temporary login to diagnose and fix the problem. Great service!

Everyone should haveReview by Prulez
Overall extension rating
This extension is ace. It does exactly as advertised, and if something breaks on your end, or doesn't work as expected, basically anything you need support for, you receive that support. This has to be, by far, the best support I've got from a developer, because I've had numerous times where the after sales were rubbish, but this is quite the opposite.

10/10. Excellent extension, and excellent support. Sometimes it's so great that I feel like I'm their only customer. (Posted on 3/15/13)

Amasty's hight level supportReview by Flank
Overall extension rating
We purchased this extension wanting to re-display the product attributes in a unique filterable way on the category view. This extension was produced with solid, bug-free code, and packaged with incredibly helpful support from the Amasty team.

We are glad that reviews are available so we can provide an honest, transparent customer review that directly relate to the quality support we received from the Amasty team.

They come highly recommended, and we're excited to vouch for their stability in providing you the same service we speak about.

Rock on.

Solved all my problemsReview by Kevin
Overall extension rating
Amasty's Improved Navigation is exactly what I needed for our site. We have many categories as well as the need to sort products by brand and model. Improved navigation gives us the ability to have these navigation options right on the homepage. This extension really helps capture the power of Magento's unlimited attributes ability. I'm extremely happy with this extension. It was easy to install and the support is excellent. All of my emails were responded to quickly and effectively. I recommend this extension to anyone who wants to try it. You won't be disappointed.

Great Product, and Great Service. You'll never be forgotten with these guys.Review by dearalice
Overall extension rating
Almost every extension I've purchased or downloaded so far (and my theme, especially), for Magento has come with outrageously terrible support and nonchalant attitudes towards any issues I've had. Even with my offers to pay them, I've gone ignored.

That's why the timely, helpful, fast-results assistance from Amasty really shocked me. I had not expected anyone to really make the effort to deal with my issue, much less get it accomplished the first time around. And each time I've come back to them they've been incredibly amiable and have given me results each time.

No only is this product amazing (I have SO MANY new capabilities with my navigation and the ability to add color images is really neat!), but it does just what it's advertised to do without any extra work on your part, and that's really a blessing these days. I especially make use of being able to make my attribute options double columns and turning my color options into small thumnails. Clean and professional looking, to say the least.

In a nutshell, I highly recommend this product. Great support for a great product. Very happy and don't regret the cost at all. :) (Posted on 2/14/13)

– Ability to hide or move category filter - it is possible either to choose a different position for categories filter or to remove it from the navigation block.
– Ability to use attributes of 'price' type in the layered navigation, e.g. special price or any other attributes which utilize the type 'price'. The extension provides several display modes for such attributes - slider, dropdown, from-to, default.
