I making a new way to shop by manufacturers.

The mod is an altered version of: List Manufacturers Attribute!!

With this mod you can add images.

Images must be the same name as the manufacturer and must end with .jpg

manufacturer.phtml:
/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/catalog/product/

manufacturer.php
/app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Block/Product/

images:
/media/catalog/brands/

you must alter lines: 30/40/50/60/70 to your own dir.:

<?php if(file_exists(\'/home/jcsl/public_html/webshop/media/catalog/brands/\'.$manufacturer[\'label\'].\'.jpg\')) {echo \'<img src=\"/webshop/media/catalog/brands/\'.$manufacturer[\'label\'].\'.jpg\" alt=\"\'.$manufacturer[\'label\'].\'\">\';else echo \'\'.$manufacturer[\'label\'].\'\'} ?></a><br/>

example:
http://www.jcsl.nl/webshop/fabrikanten

Magento version check:
1.3.2.4

Version changes:

1.2:
Images are no longer required, when there is no image a link will apaire.
1.3
In this update there is a way to choose the layout either equil aranged in 6 colloms or displayed in alphabetic order.

Hey buddy,

Thanks for the awesome stuff, works great, except I encountered an issue when dealing with brands that start with a lower case letter. Fixed it by replacing lines 31/40/49/58/67 with a simple strtoupper:

<?php $firstletter=strtoupper(substr($manufacturer[\'label\'],0,1)) ?>

Cheers,
G Nook

Hi!

Recommend to try \’shop by brands\’ functionality with Improved Navigation Extension .
It allows to create brand pages(http://improved-navigation.amasty.com/amd.html). Also with it you can make lists of all brands in nice alphabetically ordered blocks, create the “featured brands” block and have nice short urls for brand pages.

Discover live demo here http://improved-navigation.amasty.com/
See the user guide here http://amasty.com/improved-navigation.html
