This extension helps us to improve our in-store navigation. It’s got like 70% better. I’m an admin, and I can say it’s really easy to configure. I think it's suitable for any Magento store.

Pleased with this extension
Armand Chabot
We are pleased with it and going to purchase the M2. Of the several different extension providers, we rely on Amasty the most. And we are pleased with support.

Good M1 extension
Levi
We considered 2 similar modules and chose the one, as it has many filters an options for better navigation. As for cons, it conflicted with a 3rd party extension that we used and also feartured brands were not shown at first. Amasty support helped us solve both issues, now everything works as it should. Thanks!
Nov 16, 2017
Very Good Extension
Mary
This extension does everything we need there are many other out there but this one from Amasty has so many functionally it's fantastic!
There is just one small bug at present in "Improved Layered Navigation
1.15.2" when "Enable Ajax=Yes" it duplicates categories header image but hopefully it will be fixed soon.
Everything else is great!
Thanks

Works like a charm, with plenty of features, incl. great SEO settings.<br>Support is outstanding, they even helped me twice with an issue caused by the filter extension from another provider that I\'ve been using before.<br>I\'m using a couple of extension by Amasty and I was never disappointed.

Amazing support
RomikUSA
We now have more Amasty extension and started replacing some of the other extensions because the tech support received from the Amasty team is top notch.My only regret is not having used more Amasty products, their work and support has not giving us any issues even with custom themes. The Improved Layered Nav works great. Anyone looking for great extensions and support should go ahead and look at Amasty.

Worth the money!

This is a good product, with lots of options. It can take some time to get it configured and customized to your liking, but once you do, it's great. The customer support can't be beat either. They are quick and helpful.

Amasty Improved Layered Navigation is a great extension. It proved itself very useful on multiple of our Magento stores so far for many different clients with different needs and requests. Highly customable, many options and very versatile. <br>One other reason to choose for Amasty is their support. They really go out of their way to help, point you in the right directions providing clear screenshots and instructions, and even customizing certain functions for your project. <br>This extension is around for 7 years and under constant development. Amasty really knows their stuff and support requests are handled straight by their Magento Developers. Excellent!

I needed to have some custom work done on this module. Custom theme didn't work well with ajax calls from the module. Amasty provided the customization for a reasonable price. It took a while, but got done.

Great extension, very feature rich so I use only a fraction of all the possibilities. I guess it provides everything one may want to do with layered navigation and filtering.

Good extension and extra good support.
sophiecornell
This extension hold a powerful range of features to give my Magento store a lot of extra functionality.
It was installed on a heavily modified template to a store with a very large catalogue, although any complications this caused were solved by the very timely and helpful support team - which I am very grateful for.
I would recommend this theme and the additional support.

One of the most complicated apps I've ever used
maruish_23
Well, it took me days of feature browsing to configure this app the way I needed (at least most of the settings). But despite my tears and sleepless nights, I'm more than happy with the tool! What is surprising, it has no conflicts with the 3d party apps and after some code tweaking by helpful support guys it does everything I need. I totally recommend it for store upgrade.

On top of that the support is amazing. They answered all our questions within hours and helped us customizing some of the existing features.
I recommend it strongly.

Very useful extension for usability and SEO
rahanny
I'm currently using over 30 extensions on my Magento store (6 by Amasty) and have to say this extension is one of the most impressive. It saves a ton of time on administrative work and the end result is something a base Magento install just won't provide no matter how much time you spend.
The extension is packed with features that guide your users and the crawl bots down the proper paths and makes it possible to provide unique meta info to any page within any store.
The user guide is extensive and customer support is very responsive.
Jul 28, 2016
Probably the best extension in Magento Connect
dmitrybobylev
We did a research before we bought this extension. We use this extension longer than a year and we are very satisfied. It takes some time before you understand what will be a best configuration and every time you continue to be amazed that almost everything is possible! This extension has been developed over the years by Amasty and is very advanced.

Amasty's Layered Navigation is a must have extension. You can configure it in so many ways, that you will definitely be satisfied. Our favorite is the images of a product attribute that also functions as a link to products with same attribute. We were looking for that. And the support is also very good. Thanks a lot! ;)

Excellent extension which we've been using for years. Top-notch support, quick, polite, efficient. Highly recommended.
On a recent upgrade we had some problems caused by our old theme files which Amasty fixed extremely quickly.

Best extension I have purchased
Peter
This is my 5th extension purchased from Amasty and is the most comprehensive extension that provides the same capabilities that you see on large multinational corporate websites. We'll worth the money. You'll save a lot of your own time and your developers time in design and functionality work. Add with a few other Amasty extensions and you have a much cheaper option to get what other websites would spend $1000s or $10 000s on.

One of the most useful modules I've ever used
pura89
I've been using the module for 2 months already. It's very convenient to have tons of features in one module. Apart from that their support helps to do all routine settings job to make the module perfectly suite to your store and your custom theme.

Great module with extensive features
Nickname
It's hard to know where to begin with this extension. The number of features one gets for this price shows that it has really good value.
The extension is good for navigation: you can create numerous types of navigation to make it good for customers. I absolutely love flexible price sliders and multi select option for filters!
This extension is also great for SEO: you can't expect that any CMS (and Magento in partucular) will be happy to make your life easier by adding simple canonicals, meta-robots and the like features. So you always need something else. This Layered Navigation is my "something else" for controlling site indexing by Google.
What else? For anyone looking for an extension to help with SEO, Navigation and many other thing, this one is worth a try.

Норм модуль

Модуль работает нормально. Потратили кучу времени, чтобы настроить все штуки, но в итоге все ок. Саппорт отвечает достаточно быстро, так что с ними проблем тоже не было. Спасиб
Jul 29, 2015
Thank you
Derek
I'm happy with this extension, first of all. I bought it a few months ago and since then everything went smoothly. Thank you, guys, I'm sure it was hard to develop such a complex extension.
Jul 29, 2015
They don't sell it by parts
Chris
It would be great if the developer allowed purchasing particular parts of the extension for those who don't need complex solutions. Although the app is well-done, I just needed the ajax layered navigation, but they don't sell it. So I had to install the whole pack app, as I wanted the tool from this very developer.

The app works well, nothing to pick at.
Jul 28, 2015
I'l buy from them again
Tony
I have purchased a number of Amasty extensions over the course of the past few years, Layered Navigation is one of them. Before making that purchase I researched online a lot and found a few similar extensions. This Amasty navigation has more features than other similar mods, it's quite old and thus trustworthy which is also important. The updates frequency is astonishing, they covered 2 requests I sent to the customer service, which is quite helpful btw. If you buy this extension, you'll experience it as I don't think it's possible to configure everything without Amasty help.
I personally wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.
Jul 27, 2015
It has everything we need and much more
mageuser
This is an all-in-one extension. Every time we need to implement something new for SEO or site navigation I get back to the user guide and guess what? I find out that I already have this functionality and need just to configure the rules correctly! BTW, about the rules: some of them are not very easy to set so I'd be happy to have a more detailed guide on this extension even it would contain 600+ pages.
Jul 24, 2015
Great extensions
maratimp
I was looking for an extension to support the layered navigation and after some research I choose this Amasty extension as I also had other plugin from this company.
The extension works very well and I was able to setup very easily a navigation page with top selectors and others in the left coloumn.
I had a small issue because I use a custom theme and contacted the support.
Support was very good, they solved the issue very quickly (within 1 day) and I was very happy for the support.
Very suggested.
Jul 18, 2015
awesome
Penny
There are plenty of similar modules out there, and we’ve tried some of them. We worked with both free and paid addons, just searching for THE ONE that would cover all our needs.
And finally here it is! Great extension with lots of filtering/searching options. It truly gives customers great shopping experience.
Thanx!
Jul 15, 2015
Nice plugin
Dave
Just 4 stars because in my case it didn’t work right out of the box and had some coflicts with the custom theme we use on the website. Support managers handled the situation quickly. They also answered all my questions, and I had a lot of them. Configuring a new tool is a real challenge for a magento newbie like me, but with the helping hand of friendly English speaking support managers it was not a problem.

First-rate module
Tim
I want to thank the team for this addon! It does everything I needed and more. We use multiple filters on our website, all of them are super-quick, very effective and look so nice on the frontend!

Very helpful for us
Amanda
Absolutely happy with the plugin and customer support. I was puzzled with some options and turned to support managers for help. They answered all my questions in no time and suggested to have mild customization for our store. We agreed and they made all the work in the shortest terms.
Useful extension and top-notch support!

Works for me
Terry
Extension works as promised. Also creating navigation filters is a bit time-consuming and figuring out how all the settings work is not exactly obvious, when you puzzle it all out, your store reaches a new quality level. Instructions could be more detailed; everything else is A+

One of MANY great Amasty extensions
merance
Extension works great. Had a few issues with it working with my theme (ultimo), and they fixed it for me right away. I'm building a new website with Magento (switching from able), and I have purchased at least 6 Amasty extensions. They have all worked great and any problems I have had, they have helped me with right away. You get great extensions and the bang for the buck can't be beat! Whenever I want to tweak or add a function to Magento, Amasty is my first stop to find what I need. Can't praise this company enough..

Excellent product and support
Tim
I read the reviews below before buying this product, and am now in a position to fully concur with them! Excellent extension, worked for me problem-free as advertised (Magento 1.9.0.1), highly configurable, with excellent support (helpful even when 'problems' are just config issues). Great work - thanks.

Great extension for stores with many products
Alex
We are using Amasty Improved Navigation for over a year in our store (currently running on Magento 1.9.0.1). It helps our customers to narrow down product search by manufacturer, price range and some product attributes. This extension is fast, reliable, full of useful features and affordable. Installation and configuration are pretty straightforward and easy. Although we had a couple of issues with it, Amasty support helped us to resolve them quickly. Another important thing is that extension’s source code it editable, so, you will be able to tweak its front-end features to suit your specific needs. If your store has many products, we definitely recommend this extension. It really improves navigation and helps your customers to find needed products quickly.

Must have extension with great support
Ambition
We recently had a filter extension for Magento that was unreliable and the customer service was aweful. We knew that Amasty had good customer service from previous experience and with half price extension renewals we decided to switch to Improved Layered Navigation. We are extremely happy we did. This extension has so many features, and when there was a glitch with out third party theme, their support logged in and fixed it up.

Exellent extension, great support by Amasty
MacDokie, Magento Connect
Great extension. Next to the AJAX filtering, something else is really awesome about this one.
The problem normally is, that adding filter attributes to your categories, the canonical URL's get screwed up when you use an filter. This extension rewrites the filter attribute and keeps the top level canonical intact. In this way, less duplicated content alarms are set off by Google for example.
Had a question and problem about implementing this plugin in a clothing store, was solved almost immediately.
I've implemented and build lots of Magento stores and encountered numerous extension developers, and Amasty is still the most professional company so far.

Outstanding Customer Service
RH123, Magento Connect
Because of the large number of attributes for my configurable products I had an performance issue with a specific feature of this extension. It should show the image of a configurable product based on the product filter setting.
Amasty's developers worked on that function until they could send me an update which increased the speed 20-fold. It works very smooth now.
I am really excited by Amasty's support quality.

Great extension and great customer service
chadcar, Magento Connect
We purchased this extension along with 2 other extensions from this developer. This product works great and has helped us deal with duplicate content pages for google. We have made use of the other features as well. We did have an issue with the category filter not showing up and the sort order of the filters but the developer looked into it and found the problem with one of our files and fixed it. We were impressed with the customer support. All 3 extensions we bought from them are working great and have improved out site.

Been with these guys for a while. It clearly is a very well run company with a great team. They are very professional, products are very well built, and support service is super too. This extension was my first, they even customised it for me for a feature I wanted which is now part of the standard package. It is money very well spent, highly recommend.

Hello everyone,

The Extension is really good and working fine on websites. The thing is that it is a bit hard to integrate and configure it on the site.

And the solution for this is their super support!!

This guys are responding in real quick time and solve all the issues regarding the configurations.

Thank you somuch for the support!!!

Affordable and nice extension
Robert Ragas
I like the extension because its affordable for smaller sites compared to the 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.

IF you are looking for a all-in-one solution, that manages your navigation, seo and brands in your webshop, this is the ultimate tool!

I've used this extension in several projects and it's always a winner. The service is amazing! Quick response and effort to solve issues makes Amasty for me one of the best Magento extension suppliers in the field available.

Replace underscores with hyphens
mariner702
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.

Great support service
unkleara
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,

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!

Helpful extension

I used Improved Navigation for one of my client with where looking for creating menu with filter to be able to manage a big quantity of product.
I can said that, i am more than happy of this choice, the after sales service is fast and very helpful, i always get the new version on my email and the result is even better than i exempt because the team add the sep management.
Thanks again for this nice plugging

Everyone should have
Prulez
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.

Strong tool

This powerful solution and excellent support. It works just like I wanted - it's what I was looking for.

Amasty's hight level support
Flank
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 problems
Kevin
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.
dearalice
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. :)
