you created a attribute manufacture series.. what if you split that attribute into manufacture A series, manufacturer B series......etc..? is that what you are tying to do .. its was a little hard to follow?
Let say we are selling cars and have products like this:
Ford Focus 1.6 gasoline
Ford Focus 1.8 gasoline
Ford Focus 1.6 diesel
Ford S-max 2.0 diesel
Ford S-max 2.0 gasoline
Ford Fiesta 1.8 gasoline
Audi A8 4.2 V8
Audi A8 4.2 TDI
Audi A6 3.0 TDI
Audi A7 3.0 TDI
Audi A7 4.0 TDI
Jaguar XF 3.0 diesel
Jaguar XF 3.0 V6 gasoline
Jaguar XKR 4.0 V8
Jaguar XJ 4.0 V8
Jaguar XJ 3.0 V6
So we have three manufacturers: Ford, Audi, Jaguar
We also have 9 manufacturers series: Facus, S-max, Fiesta, A8, A6, A7, XF, XKR and XJ
All together we have 16 products.
I would like to form my navigation like this. I would like to hide manufacturers series attribute in layered navigation, so that costumers could select only manufacturers. After manufacturer would be selected I would like to include navigation with manufacturers series attribute in a block of code above product listing and not in the left column where the rest of Layered navigation resides. Because of Improved navigation extension I can include this block on manufacturers landing page.
I saw this example in this page:
They have navigation made like this:
They have layered navigation in left column but manufacturers product series selector appears above product listing when you select a specific manufacturer. I would like to have the same functionality.
I will appreciate any help I can get.
