It’s a rainy day and we had too much coffee….
So we updated several hundred products with new „species“ attributes, searchable and comparable values for „length“ and „usable length“. The new comparable „maximum diameter“ attribute. Images that got broken or gone missing. More categories allow dynmic filtering, …
A ton of boring cleanup work, so you can make the most out of the advanced search, the ability to dynamically filter the product lists in large categories and to select products to compare them side by side.
Size category rules
We also defined objective rules for our 5 size categories.
Based on usable length with exceptions for unusual and extreme knots.
Tiny = usable length 13cm or less and no excessive knots
Mini = usable length 17cm or less and no unusualy thickness
Regular = usable length 26cm or less and <8cm thickness
Large = usable length 40cm or less and <9cm thickness
Extra Large = everything larger
We do not apply the same rules within the „Canines“ and „Equines“ category. Simply because horses are usually quite large already and it would lead to very biased subcategories of Horses and of Canines
Within the canines, the medium sizes is everything from 16-20cm of usable length.
Within the equines, the medium sizes is everything from 20-29cm of usable length.
Sadly the software does not allow selecting ranges of numerical values when searching for size values or when using the dynamic filters. That feature is only supported for the attribute type „price“. Sorry. We’re keeping our eyes open for a plugin that adds this missing feature.
