Version 2.1 of Turbo, available now, turns up the volume on Turbo’s already rich feature set, adding some great new advanced features and sections, including more flexibility for product filtering, more page layout options, advanced mega menus, built in support for recently viewed products and more, as well as several new homepage sections.
The newest version of Turbo also represents a big shift forward with the theme’s dedication to speed and performance.
By further optimizing our code libraries, Turbo 2.1 has the capability to shift your store into an even higher gear, along with adding a host of upgrades.
This new feature adds the ability to group your tags in your sidebar and let customers filter collections according to their needs.
This lets customers filter products by any type of tag you’d like, such as:
One important thing to note is that this feature does not, at this time, support letting customers apply multiple filters at once within the same tag type, though you can apply multiple filters at one time across multiple tag types.
A new page template, page.details.liquid, brings the ability to use the drag and drop section layout feature of the homepage to one of your inside pages.
This is a great way to bring more exciting layouts to one of your most viewed pages, such as the “about us” page. You’ll be able to use all of the sections available to you on the homepage to create a stunning inside page.
It’s also possible, with a bit of code tweaking, to use this feature to build more than one page this way.
Turbo now comes with the ability to create up to five advanced mega menu layouts. Each of these mega menus, in turn, can have up to five columns of content.
Then, within each column, you will now have the ability to include:
This new section can be used on the homepage and product page, and the sidebar of collection product and search results pages.
You can further customize this section by:

This new feature adds the ability to showcase both the percentage and currency unit savings for products that are on sale. The theme will automatically calculate the percentage (rounded to the nearest percent) and also show the difference in the currency unit your store is using.
In addition to the new features outlined above, Turbo 2.1 includes bug fixes, as well as:
