Make it easy for customers to find the perfect product by adding filters and sorting options to your Product Galleries.
You can display the default filters already set up for you, or create your own custom filters. You can also add a "Sort by" drop-down so that your customers can sort your products as they wish.
Filter and sorting options are only available on grid galleries, not slider galleries.

  6. Choose which types of filters you want to set up:
Filtered products do not necessarily appear on your live site in the order in which they appear in categories.

Creating Your Own Custom Filters
