Is it possible to create a manufacturer list that links to their respective products?

Hello All,
I’m relatively new to Magento so I’m hoping to get some answers from this great community. I wanted to create a drop down list of all the manufacturers that we represent in our store. I saw a module that links to a manufacturer info page that contains information for the manufacturer, but I’m looking to simply link each manufacturer name to a page that automatically displays all of the products offered by that manufacturer, regardless of category. I know it was a basic feature that I could do with OS Commerce and many of our customers like to shop by vendor. Is that possible?

Thanks!

Michael

Hello Michael,
may be you mean our Shop By Brands module.  This extension allows customers to filter products by manufacturers (as well as by categories) and enables you to create separate pages for brands presented in your store, and link to them from product pages.

Thank you for the reply. Does your module offer the ability to list it in a drop down format like on the right side here: http://demo.oscommerce.com ?

Thanks.

Yes, it is just a simple template change. 
We have posted detailed instructions on how to do this at http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/42616/ . 
Feel free to PM as for any questions regarding this mod.

You can also achieve this with the FME Shop by Manufacturer extension, see the demo here http://demo.fmeextensions.com/fmecatalog/index.php/Brands.html/

Hi!

You can easily do this with Improved Navigation Extension. It has great ‘shop by brands’ functionality. 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. See the images attached.

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

Hi

If Michael or someone else is still interested in such a solution, i found this SHOP BY BRAND NAMES module which generates a landing page with all available brands listed alphabetically. In turn, brand profile page includes logo, description and displays brand-related products.

It also can be done as landing page or producer page with attribute - used with http://www.shopmages.com/improved-navigation-by-amasty.html
