The advanced search is currently the only way I can list by brand on our live site, and is quite limited. I really need to push the title of the brand being listed to the html title for SEO purposes.
This is about as far as I got, editing catalogsearch/block/advanced/result.php
foreach($searchCriterias[’left’] as $criteria):
if ( ($criteria[’name’]) == “Manufacturer” )
$title = $this->__("’%s‘“, ($criteria[’value’]));
Etc. Sadly, it doesn’t work. I know that $searchCriterias is getting populated, but the array seems overly complicated. Any ideas, anyone?
