Usually that should be possible by using the attributes (with the manufacturer) and product categories. I’m not a coder, but I’m sure that both is somerwhere in the database and somebody can use the queries to make a manufacturers shop possible.
Anyway, a brand store is a must have for us.

This would be helpful too!

At the moment we’ve thought of creating categories in line with each manufacturer we have, but we would like the adding of products to these categories automatically.

I also have to give it a “+1” as a need.  Having manufactures logos and searchable products by manufactures is key to many online businesses especially if there is the ability to assign <alt> tag info to the images for the benefit of SEO.

Hi,

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but take a look at this site.  It has manufacturers in the sidebar and as icons.  The icons is simply an image with links.  The sidebar is generated on the fly.  Both then conduct an advanced search based on manufacturer and return results. 

IMO this is the way to do it with least coding effort.  If you wanted you could link to manufacturer pages and create these under CMS->Manage Pages.

If you want assistance on coding this up PM me and I’ll try to help you out.

Rgds

Similar to what was just posted above . . . I’m wondering if a “makeshift” way to accomplish this might be to create a static block page with your manufacturer listing and/or logos - where by a user can click onto the link and be brought to another customised page with information about the Manufacturer (similar to how one might create an “About Us” or “Terms & Conditions” page).

------------------------------------------------

Here is another example of how it might be accomplished through logo links --> http://www.netshops.com/allstores.cfm

-----------------------------------------------

While we would all prefer for the func tion to work via the core Magento system, another thought is to set up a separate CMS system (such as Joomla, Drupal, WordPress) and simply create a link to a directory via the separate CMS.  I know that there are several “directory” extensions abailable for Joomla.

Just some out-of-the-box possible solutions (for now).

The advanced search is an interesting option, but would not be optimal for SEO and layout customization.

What about creating a top level category, so say you have
Tshirts
Jackets
Hats
Shoes
--- Mens
---Womens
Brands
---Nike
-------Mens
-------Womens

so if you have a pair of Mens Nike Shoes you would put it under Shoes, Mens Shoes, Brands Nike, Brands Nike Shoes.
This way you have regular category pages by Brand/Manufacturer as well as regular categories.

Has anyone done it this way?

I have produced a Manufacturer list that link to Manufacturer pages and not using the Advanced Search, with products and updates just by adding a new label to the manufacturer attribute.

Let me demonstrate:

This is the product page which you can see the Manufacturer list on the right hand side, the second image is the manufacturer page.

If anyone is interested in implementing this feature please PM me.

Many thanks,

This is an important extension!!

Every professional webshop displays a manufacturer logo at the product site and an extra site for some manufacturer-story, link to the manufacturer-website,…

Are there any news about such an extension?

Thank´s for some feedback.
