As you can read in this section of the documentation, facet attributes can come from 4 sources:
- Default attributes
- Variant options
- Named tags
Default attributes are the only ones for which we’ve restricted the available facet types.
You can’t indeed use slider for
product type and
tags, as those are text, and are hence not viable for the slider type.
The other ones can however all be set with the slider type.
Since you mentionned building a slider from tags, you can use numeric named tags (for my example, I’ll assume that you want to facet on clothes sizes):
If you currently have tags:
You can change them to:
You’ll need to enable named tags in the Indexing tab. This will trigger a complete reindexing for your products, for which you can track the progress at the bottom of the Indexing tab.
At the end of the reindex, you should then have
size available in the Facets section of the Search Options tab, and be able to configure it as a slider.
