Block Search Refinements

It's possible to include refinements for broad categories that are blocked for subcategories. If a customer navigates to the subcategory without selecting the blocked refinement, the blocked refinement isn't visible in the subcategory.

However, if a customer selects a refinement and then navigates to a subcategory where the refinement is blocked, the refinement is still shown, so that the customer can still relax the refinement.

  1. Select site > Products and Catalogs > Catalogs > catalog.
  2. Navigate the catalog until you see the category that you want to block a refinement for and click Edit.
  3. Click theSearch Refinement Definitions tab.
  4. On the Search Refinement Definitions tab, in the row of the refinement you want to block, click Block.
    The blocked refinement is applied immediately.
