    Another feature that's really needed is color grouping.
    For example, if the products have all sort of blue colors like sky blue, navy blue, dark blue, blue, etc, we don't want to show all of them in the color section of the filter, otherwise it would have hundreds of color blocks showing. We only want to show the major colors (Black, Gray, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, etc..).
    The module should allow grouping these colors to a general "Blue" and when the end user clicks on the "Blue" filter, it should show all the products that have associated blues.
    This is crucial for stores that has lots of products.

    Instead of expanding a filter you should enable a scroll. This will save precious space from layout.

    "1) Manufacturer and Extra fields filters are already in place. As for categories, it can't be a separate filter because it's designed in a way that filters are tied to categories. In other words, if a customer choose a category, he sees filters for the chosen category."

    Do you mean that admin has ability to specify which extra fields/manufacturer show up on filter on a per extra field/manufacturer basis?

    "2) Please clarify what "Expanded Filter per category" mean."

    Sorry should have been a little clearer,
    I meant to say that admin should be able to specify which filter group should by default open up expanded and which ones not.

    Also if there are no results on a specific category, for example on free shipping filter, does the free shipping filter still show up as greyed out or not show up at all?

    3) We will add filter icons in next releases of the module.

    Thank you for sharing your ideas.
