You can see it there on the left side.

it says Shop By.

I must be doing something wrong here or overlooking something!

Sorry, but what is your question? Are you asking how to get the ‘Shop By’ Navigation to appear? If that is the case you need to set the category anchor to yes (edit a category).

Cheers

Sorry, I was kinda tired when I made that post wink That’s exactly what I was looking for, thanks. Is there any way for me to change the options? For example, I have a sub-category and it lists “Categories” in the “Shop By” box. Is there any way for me to remove the “Categories” specification?

*edit*

I apologize, that was yet another stupid question. All I had to do was edit the attribute “Manufacturer”.

i am looking all over for a thread to do a left side manufacturer list.  a couple threads start that questions but then focus on left side navigation.  i just want to shop by manufacturer list on left side which is an attribute.

also, a landing or cms page where they can “view all manufacturers” and go to a page where a list of logo’s or manufacturer names will take them to the corresponding manufacuteres.

Finally, it would be cool to also filter by a selection of manufacturers.  so, if you want to see all lcd’s by sony, samsung and toshiba only.  but this is not that important.  just a topic starter if someone has a solution.

All mentioned features (landing pages for manufacturers, list of all brands, ability to filter by multiply brands simultaneously) are packed into market leading Improved Navigation extension.
