Shop By Manufacturers/Brands
Works, but not quite there.
Installed this on a client's site and had it functioning well, however we wanted the layered navigation to appear on brand pages so that you can filter products by their attributes, price and category (e.g. on the Adidas brand page, filter by Men's, Women's, Under $25, etc) however this was not possible.
Support was very attentive and helpful with getting it as close as possible, and were quick to respond.
However they were unable to quote for customisation because they're too busy so we're not going to be using this extension any longer.
With a bit of extra attention given to this extension, it could be great!

This plugin is awful: it is programmed very badly. Their programmer should not be programming, it is way below standards.
I tried to fix it, but I would be better of to create a plugin myself. I am a plugin developer also, and my client wanted this plugin to save time, but we spend way too much time fixing this plugin.

Awful. Extension just doesn't work. Simple things like apostrophes in names breaks it. Products or manufacturers disappear from database when editing. The only support is an email asking for full admin/FTP access to the (live) system. Requested refund. FishPig's Attribute Splash Pages works better and is free.

After a months of mails and waiting, nothing has changed!
This extension doesn't work on our site and the support has disappeared.
We have asked our money back and we are waiting for a response.

It functions as advertised, but the programming style is awful. We've spend days to update this extension to an acceptable version. They use inconsistent variable names, wrong indentation, wrong use of whitespace, they don’t understand the difference between single and double quotes, they don’t consistently use their own data helpers, the use very little code comments , the HTML templates are a mess, etc. I won’t recommend this extension, and won’t buy anything from FME again.

Hi, we have discovered another bug: the .html url extension applied to the brand's url page doesn't work.
They have tried to fix it but they couldn't.
We are not happy at all of this extension and the support we are receiving is poor so far.

Buy with confidence from these guys. Fast response to support tickets and more than willing to work with me.

Great extension, works as described, custom attributes can be used as a basis for your manufacturer list. Support is really helpful. I'd recommend this to anyone.
