Price Filter Widget

The Price Filter widget allows customers to refine products by price by dragging the sliders within the widget to create a price range based on the products displayed on the page.

To use the widget, drag it to your widgetized region as you would any other widget. It automatically detects the minimum and maximum prices on the current page to populate the slider.

The price filter widget only appears on product archives.
