Every website/makeover I build, I try to do something that I have never seen done before on a osCommerce site. For the latest build I put together a new box module that allows the shopper to drill down the category by manufacturer.
If that sounds familiar, it is because it already exists in osCommerce, as a dropdown in the category pages;
What I did was rip the functionality out of the index page, and put it into a box module (and gave it a bit better style). I also tried to make it more intuitive by adding text reminding shoppers that they have set a “filter”;
And here is a video of it in action;
Let me know what you think. Happy to hear any ideas for making it better.
