Magento Price Slider

The ISAAC Price Slider provides users with a slider for selecting price ranges on layered navigation pages. This stable and tested extension is available for all price attributes and all pages where price filters for these attributes were previously shown. It also provides a flexible mechanism to determine optimal step sizes.



Features

On layered navigation pages, a price slider is shown instead of a price filter. On these pages, the user can select a price range by dragging the handles of a slider and apply the selected price range by clicking on a button. After filtering, the slider is still shown, to allow further refinement of the selection.

The ISAAC Price Slider boasts the following features:

  • Visible on all layered navigation pages: both category pages and search results pages.
  • Each attribute with frontend input type price has its own price slider.
  • Improved step size calculation: the optimal step size for a collection of products is automatically determined based on a number of configurable parameters (as opposed to determining a suitable power of 10). Manual overrides, either general or per category, are respected (requires at least Magento 1.4.2).
  • English and Dutch translations of all strings.
  • No extra tables or controllers: the standard filter functionality is used.
  • No use of 3rd party libraries: the price slider makes use of the script.aculo.us slider that is distributed with Magento.
  • No file encryption: the code can be fully inspected.

The following options can be configured:

  • Automatic step size calculation:
    • Maximum number of steps (default 10)
    • Allowed base step sizes: a comma-separated list of values that are used as available step sizes for each power of 10 (default 1,2.5,5)
    • Minimum step size (default 5)
  • Show active price sliders, i.e. show the price slider even after filtering is applied (default Yes).

Compatible with the following Magento versions: 1.4.1, 1.4.2, 1.5.0

    Hi, Interested in purchasing the Price Slider, it's for domain www.bicyclestore.com.au, however we are upgrading Magento, my question is will it work on a subdomain for testing purposes? We have Magento 1.5.0.1 installation, I'm assuming that version is supported. Thanks, Sean.
