a page with a complete listing of all manufacturers?
« on: May 23, 2008, 14:56:46 pm »
hi there.

our client wants to have a listing of all his authors (it's a bookstore). i changed the „manufacturer“-term against „authors“ and it's working great for us.
do you have an idea how to publish a list of all manufacturers/authors on one „overview-page“? it would be great to have an solution inside vm and not as joomla-contents!

thanks and best regards,
jan

1-Create a static content titled such as "authors"
2-Create a menu link to that static content
3-Publish "manufacturers module" in a position that is located inside the main body. Don't forget to link the module "only" to that "authors" menu.

Then when you go the "authors" link in the menu you will go to the page where all manufacturers (authors) are listed.

I'm trying to accomplish almost exactly the same thing, except that I'm listing manufacturers, not authors. Tulpar, when you say "static" content, do you mean a real static html page, or do you mean an "article layout" article page?
