I want to allow my customers to navigate by categories but also by selecting a brand.
In the header, I would have the menu like it is right now in Magento. But in one of the colums, I would like to have a dropdown field which list all the brands for quick access.
My first thought was to create a new attribute. But I don’t know how to access it to create a dropdown field. And it seems too limited for what I need.
I am asking myself if the best solution would not be to create categories for the brands. It would allow me to create a product list with it’s own design and to add a description of the brand.
The store would have his root category on the real categories. I just have to find a way to create a dropdown field from an other top category. Could you help me?
