Blacklisting and whitelisting faceted navigation categories

Managed by | Updated .

Background

There are some instances where there is a need to control which Faceted Navigation categories are displayed.

This can be controlled by either blacklisting or whitelisting categories.

Blacklisting a category tells Funnelback to hide the specified category from the list presented to the user.  Use this option when you need to remove specific categories from Faceted Navigation.

Whitelisting a category specifies a list of categories that can be presented to the user.  Use this option when you have a small list of categories that should be shown from a large list of available categories.

Blacklisting categories

In the Modern UI use the collection.cfg setting faceted_navigation.black_list

Note: Classic UI is deprecated from Funnelback v15.0

Whitelisting categories
