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.
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.
