Toggle content by filter

If you want to show/hide some HTML when some specific filter was applied in layered navigation. So before you show some HTML you need to add it to the category page. If you already have HTML content at the page. Just wrap it in container <div class="swissup-aln-toggle swissup-aln-toggle-color-5484 swissup-aln-hidden"><!--your toggle content here --></div>.

  1. Create a static block for all categories. Go Content -> Blocks -> Add New Block and fill the form like above Add custom static block
  2. Create widget (type static block). Go Content -> Wifdgets -> Add Widget and fill form Storefront Properties -> Type select Cms Static Block. In Widget Options -> Block select block name you created at previous step. Layout updates fill like at picture.
    • Click Add Layout Update. Select Display on Anchor Categories
    • Categories select ‘All’
    • Container ‘Main Content Top’ - will shows above product listing
    • Repeat for Non-Anchor Categories Add Widget
  3. Flush Cache
  4. Open any category page. In my case, I see many X. Added html
  5. Select attribute-value pair for example color purple. After reloading you can copy your attribute-value from the address bar (in my case ?color=5484)
  6. Open you custom static block created at first step and add some html markup <div class="swissup-aln-toggle swissup-aln-toggle-color-5484 swissup-aln-hidden">any HTML tags, picture, another widgets, etc.</div>

When attribute color option purple (5484) was apply js code remove class “swissup-aln-hidden” and show widget content.
