Custom Fields and Filtering

If, when creating your custom field, you checked the Searchable option, then that custom field will now display in the filtering sidebar on your catalog page and, using the control type you set for the Filtering Control Type option, people will be able to select a value and the catalog will automatically filter itself to show only products with that value.

Note: If there are no products in a catalog that have a value assigned to them for a particular custom field, that field will not show in the filtering sidebar, regardless of whether or not the Searchable option is checked.
