Availability -> Include or exclude content that is out of stock

The results of your keyword search and/or filter selection will be shown below the search and filter area, presented in tiles.

Article types
Many articles do have different types available, e.g. a valve that is available in different dimensions (and therewith types).
In order to select a type:
1. Click the Select article type pulldown menu
2. The pulldown menu will show the available types
3. Click the desired type in order to select it
