Filter setting for the collection page is rich and has several customizations, the issue is when you go to the search page it does not have the same filter options. This really breaks the cohesiveness. I missed this before we purchased this theme and we are stuck with we're unable to make code customizations from a theme support perspective, but are happy to make a feature request on my behalf.

Hello MFA Online team! While our themes are highly customizable, as theme developers we also need to follow Shopify's mandatory guidelines on how theme search functionality is displayed within the theme. We are always looking for ways to improve our themes, and appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback!

This is an excellent theme and our second time using it! It is easy to set up, looks great and when I ran into a small glitch, their support was amazing and took the time to work with me to get it resolved! Highly recommend!
