To Phillip Hughes,

Is there anyway you could add the Manufacturer List to the community? That extension would be great.

I would hate to see this thread die, as I feel it’s a very important aspect of e-commerce that magento doesn’t have. Any Luck?

Sent Phillip a PM too - looks like he has the answer to what we want.  Can no one else really figure this out?

Was anyone able to get hold of Phillip via PM?  I am still attempting to figure this feature out.  Any advice would be appreciated.

Also tried to get hold of Phillip via PM and email but he’s not responding, but does log in :(

Prepared to pay for this solution.

Hi,

Autogenerated manufacturer pages would be great over here too! For every manufacturer name added to the manufacturer attribute a CMS page is created? We can then add standard block for layouts etc as we want it?

Love to hear if anyone has figured out a way or a module for such a feature?

wink

We’ve just released Shop By Brands extension, which lets you create manufacturers’ pages, link to them from products’ pages and lets your customers shop by manufacturers. In addition it allows creating All Brands Page for SEO optimization. You can find more info here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/1289/shop-by-brands

Also consider Improved Navigation extension for showing brand information pages. 

It goes without saying that the addon allows to add description, brand logo and meta tags to the manufacturer page.  More important, you can show layered navigation on the brand pages (none of the competitive mods allows it) to facilitate future search by attributes. And at the end you can create “featured brands” blocks and paste them on any page via CMS. 

It is a small subset of the module features only :)
