To show a product filter in your Shopify store, you can use the following steps:

  1. Log in to your Shopify admin panel.
  2. Go to the "Online Store" section and click on "Themes."
  3. In the "Live theme" section, click on the "Actions" dropdown and select "Edit code."
  4. On the left-hand side of the code editor, navigate to the "Snippets" folder and click to open it.
  5. Look for a file named "collection-template.liquid" or "product-grid-item.liquid" (the name may vary depending on your theme).
  6. Open the file and search for the section where the product grid or collection is rendered.
  7. Inside the product grid loop, add a filter button or dropdown menu that corresponds to your desired filter criteria (e.g., color, size, price range).
  8. Use Shopify's built-in Liquid language and the appropriate filter tags to handle the filtering logic. You can refer to Shopify's documentation for the filter tags available.
  9. Save the changes to the file and then preview your store to see if the product filter appears as desired.
  10. If everything looks good, click on "Save" and then "Publish" to make the changes live on your Shopify store.


Note: The steps mentioned above may vary depending on your theme setup. Some themes may have specific filter sections or settings that you can modify through the theme customization options. If that's the case, it is recommended to consult your theme documentation or reach out to the theme developer for specific instructions on adding a product filter.
