Collection Tag Filtering for Warehouse 2.5.1

1 0 0

Hi there,


I am aware that Shopify no longer allows filtering by tag for 2.0 theme versions and that I can use the default filters under Navigation > Collections, HOWEVER I need to be able to filter collections by product type (this I've done) AND filter the list further by using tags as well (this is where I'm stuck) due to the nature of the product.


For example, in the Engine Performance collection, I can filter down to Product Type > Air Filters, but then I need to see air filters for specific car makes such as BMW by using a product tag filter.


Can I do this using metafields (collection metafields says 'coming soon') and if so would it be a standard definition or a custom definition?

Hi @Wendy19 

This is Boost Product Filter & Search - a solution that grows more sales for online stores by letting shoppers find the right products within milliseconds. As a Shopify Partner who is trusted by over 11,000 merchants, I would like to provide my recommendation.

Back to your question, to use filtering by tag for 2.0 theme versions, we highly recommend you to give our app - Boost Product Filter & Search a try. Why? 

  • Our app can currently be set up on most Shopify vintage themes and popular OS 2.0 themes (view details)
  • Our app allows users to Filter by Collection and by Tag.
  • Unlimited custom filters with Filter by Tag, Filter by Metafield
  • Different collections using product filtering of Shopify OS 2.0 have almost the same filter options except for the Filter by Product options. You can't make the Availability filter visible on the Fashion collection page only. The great thing about our app is users can tailor a specific filter tree and assign it to a particular collection.

Also, we provide a 14-day free day trial with  5-star support by email, chat or call.

This is all I have to say, if my answer helped you, please like and accept it as a solution!
