I would like create categories for my manufacturers. I can't belive this is not a standard feature or at least not evident for me to see. For example, let's say the manufacturer is Apple and I want to create categories for Apple only such as,
- Smart watches
- Cloud Services
So when you go to Apple as the manufacturer, you would see all these categories like you would see subcategories.
I did a work around where I created a category with subcategories. I then did a URL redirect from the manufacturer to the Category. So now it looks like my manufacturer has categories.
I just think this is not the way to do it. If there's a plugin, I'll buy it but this is a common sense aplication and it should come this way out of the box.
