If extension is enabled, layered navigation will apply on category page. In case, extension layered navigation is not working, there can be 2 possible reasons as mentioned below –

  • Another extension overriding Magento Layered Navigation – If this is the possibility then we need to disable that extension.
  • Category is not set as anchor – Layered navigation work with categories of anchor type. To mark a category as anchor please edit that category.

To edit a category go to Catalog -> Manage Category page.

  • Category layout should not be 1 column
