A better way to display manufacturers as features

I haven’t really liked how the manufacturers were displayed in the features part of the product details page. One of the biggest things is that there wasn’t a link to be able to go to the manufacturers home page. I also didn’t like the fact that none of the manufacturer data wasn’t there besides just the name.



This is what I changed the features tab to look like:







I did this by changing skins/basic/customer/views/products/components/product_features.tpl



I changed:


{elseif $feature.feature_type == "S" || $feature.feature_type == "E"}
{foreach from=$feature.variants item="var"}
{if $var.selected}{$var.variant}{/if}
{/foreach}




To:


{elseif $feature.feature_type == "S" || $feature.feature_type == "E"}
{foreach from=$feature.variants item="var"}
{if $var.selected}{$var.variant}{$var.url}

{$var.description}

{/if}
{/foreach}




There might be a better way to style this, but this works.



I hope this helps someone.

I like it! Thank you.

Works great for descriptions, thanks!



Anyone know the tag to get the image in there as well?

Has anyone added the manufacturer image to the Features area? It would be good to have the logo next to the description.
