Very good extension and wonderful support The extension is very good, simple but perfectly integrated in Magento. The installation is simple (file upload) with no need to modify any template file. The developer support is fast and very good. I had a small feature request and they sent me the new files to upload. Definitely recommended. July 29, 2013
Create Pages by Manufacturer / Brand Our theme provided a ribbon of manufacturer's logos and one of them requested a page with ALL their products on it. Previously, we used simple search, but now all the products are listed with no hit and miss. May 15, 2013

Hello, Sean.

It is generally possible to move the Brands block under the product description. Such task generally requires minor code adjustments, but its complexity depends on the peculiarities of your current theme.
Please, contact our Support service, and provide a detailed description of the task - our techs will be able to give the precise answer then.
Thank you.
