I am using ver. 1.1.8 and I have filters for brand, color and category attributes on my products. So far I have more than 1000 configurable products with 5 to 10 simple products each and those products are filtered just fine on the frond end . The new products I am creating are being filtered by the brand attribute but are do not show on the front end for the category or color filters. Any ideas on how can I fix this.
Can you please post here a screenshot of your brand attribute configuration page ? I guess you have to set “Use In Layered Navigation” to “Filterable (with results)” or “Filterable (without results)” and to refresh Layered Navigation indices under System -> Cache Management to see it.
