Important update:
  • An update of the module is available, which includes a new interface for selecting products in the collection-the filter interface, which supports all information blocks in all editions of 1C-Bitrix. This interface is similar to the filter in the list of information block elements in the administrative section.
  • Collecting products with a discount has become much more convenient, details.
The solution embodies the dreams of many site owners as well as SEO specialists on creation of categories with the necessary product range, satisfying said conditions, parameters, properties.

Linking the goods of the collection to the sections of infobook highlights a number of advantages:

  • allows you to organize sections that automatically collect products with different parameters.
  • there are no separate components, so there is no need to adjust anything to the site design. everything will work within your current design, if the catalog output is already configured.
  • support for the 1C-Bitrix smart filter.
  • since collections are built on the basis of InfoBlock sections, all the functionality of the sections is preserved, such as the ability to set unique SEO information, a description and a unique URL, and other points.

 With this module, you can, for example, very easily and conveniently create product sets for the New year, February 23, March 8, etc.and offer them to visitors of your site.

Typical usage examples:

 1) Organize the section "Sale" (or "Shares")

Sections where products of certain parameters should be displayed, for example, belong to one brand, or have a specific color. There are countless cases. Manually linking products to this section is not very convenient. The "Product collections in sections" module makes it easy to organize such sections.

Additionally, in the article-discounted Products-sales using collections or discounted Products to collect has become even easier.

2) Creating special categories where you need to display products of certain groups.

For example, the sports goods website already has sections:

  • Treadmills
  • Elliptical trainer
  • Exercise bike
  • ...
You need to create the following branch:Simulators by type
  • - For feet
  • - For hands
  • - For the back
  • - For the press
Where products from the above sections should be collected based on their properties. With the help of the module, you can easily organize this. More examples in the article Нow to effectively help the buyer choose a product? Proper organization of products is the key to website success!

3) Build up a hierarchy.

One of the best examples of using the module is if you need to create a hierarchy of sections that is fundamentally different from the hierarchy in the accounting system (program). For example, products are added from 1C or parsed from another source, where the section structure is not the same as you need. You only need to create the structure you need once, set the rules for sections using the conditions constructor, and products will automatically fall into these sections. Unnecessary sections that were added from the original source will only need to be deactivated.

4) Organize sections from brands.

For example:

  • brand 1
  • brand 2
  • brand 3 .
  • ..
Each of them will contain only products from this brand. For more examples, see the Collections article. How to make your site more convenient and attractive.

5) Discount products.

In designer terms ask conditions similar discounts and the goods will be collected in a certain section, then it can be used for only promotional products.

Sometimes it is necessary to perform the opposite task, to make collections separate from the catalog, so that they have a hotel page (category), do not display sections-collections in the menu or in other places along with other sections, visually represent a separate entity. By default, this is not supported, but simple improvements can be made to adapt the module to solve this problem, and we are ready to help*.

6) Implementation of the dubbed subsections.

Linking a section to multiple parent sections
Sometimes you need to link a single subsection to multiple sections. This is not possible by default, because you can only select one "parent" for a section, unlike products.

You can use this module to work around this problem by creating a duplicate subsection and specifying the source subsection in the collection conditions.

For example, you have a partition tree built:

  • Smartphones
  • Cases
  • Tablets
The task is to make the "Cases" subsection (parent - Smartphones) also available in the "Tablets"section. Using this solution, you just need to create a subsection (double) with the name " Cases "in the" Tablets " section and configure the conditions for getting products from the original section.

The end result will be:
  • Smartphones
  • Cases
  • Tablets
  • Cases
For more information about examples, see the article "Product collections in sections / Categories for Seo" - a convenient, universal module for solving many urgent problems.


  • Re-indexing binds the items to the collections, but also leaves them tied to their old sections, for which the collection is not configured. Therefore, if there is a need for goods to answer only to one URL address, you need to configure support for canonical links. More about this in the documentation: Main section of the element and support of canonical references.
  • The collection must be replayed only once after its creation or if the collection conditions have been changed.
