I've seen other ecommerce platforms like 3dcart allow you to add product categories and then associate those categories with specific brands. So if you chose a Manufacturer like Nike and had categories like Running Shoes and Basketball Shoes. You could then send customers to a Manufacturer page for Nike and the linked categories would automatically display. A work around currently requires me to create a manufacturer attribute and then hard code into a widget the manufacturer link. This is a major flaw as hard coding is never a safe solution. This will make it much easier to create a site with many different categories. Also, it will allow customers to shop by brand more easily. Download a demo of 3dcart to test this. I really don't like 3dcart but at least they do this much better so AC can come up with a way to do it based on their methods.
