Default Brand Filter not working correctly

My brand filter is not working right. I added more brands that I carry now and after I updated there are some brands that work as they should but a large portion of the brands come up with "Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help." Now I know I have these products because if I use the search they are listed. What could be causing this? listed below is a copy of how I have the brand filter configured.

Hi

This is probably because the merchants haven't added the brand name to the "Brand" field in their data feed.

To get around this, replace query='brand= with query='word=

That should work in all cases.

Can you be more specific?

Which ones work?
Which ones don't?
What's your site's URL?

Thanks,
Eric

Hi

It is working but not how you think it's supposed to work.

For example, Motorola works here:
http://sdc24-7.com/store/category/ce...?word=Motorola

But not here:
http://sdc24-7.com/store/category/co...?word=Motorola

This is because these are filters, not categories. Filters reduce (or filter) the current selection or list of products. If there are no Motorola products in the "Cookware" category, clicking the filter will not expose them.

So, I suggest setting up multiple Widgets of brand filters, 1 widget for each parent category of your store. Then you will start to get the expected results.

Eric
