I am using Magento to create a clothing store. My store has many different designers that make the clothing that I sell.
Currently I have the designers setup as categories and when I create a new product for that designer, I add it to the designer’s category. Each designer category has “No” set for “Is Anchor” and for design, I am using the two columns with left bar layout.
Everything works as expected when I browse the ‘designer’ category, but as soon as I select a specific designer from the list, all of the designer names are not present on that designer’s category.
I would like to be able to click on a designers name and see all products for that designer, but also be able to view the designer list (layered navigation) on the left so I can easily change which designer I am looking at.
What can I do to set this up correctly?
Here are some links to other Magento sites that have this working:
Both of the URLs listed above have all of the designers listed on the left while browsing that designer’s products.
