Three more options are available when you enable the Layered Navigation Block module. They are not strictly tied to the layered navigation: they provide a direct URL to each of a product's variations. This way, not only is the customer able to send a correct link to a friend, but this also helps enhance your search engine placement.
The customer can get the URL simply by clicking on an attribute from the product sheet, and : the URL will change to add a final detail, for instance
The layered navigation generator does make use of these too, hence the description text "Specific URL format in block layered generation" and "Use this attribute in URL generated by the layered navigation module".
The main list eventually presents you with all your registered attributes. You can edit or delete each using the buttons on the right of the table, or display their values by clicking on the "+" icon, which opens a sub-table.
You can also set the attributes presentation order on the front-office either by clicking on the arrow icons, or by drag'n'dropping each row when the mouse hovers the "Position" column.
One Once your attributes are in place and their values are set, you can create product variations (or "combinations") in each product's "Combinations" tab, from the "ProductProducts" page under the "Catalog" menu.
On the front-end of your store, manufacturers are sorted alphabetically. You cannot change that order.
New categories manufacturers are automatically disabled. You must enable them in order to have them appear online – even if they do not contain any product yet.
