    Hello there,

    I am new to this plugin and to wordpress as well. I hope you can answer me this effectively.

    Can I view the car listings by clicking maker names as is the case in the following website? The makers in the site are on the left hand side.

    http://www.japanesevehicles.com/index.php?lang=en.

    If yes, how can I do that please? Someone told me that I have to create makers as categories and then connect these categories to your plugin car listing pages? Too difficult to understand this.

    Hello,

    This is something you can accomplish fairly easily.

    First, add a few cars to your inventory and make sure you fill out the Make field.

    Let's say one of the makes is 'Buick'. After adding the vehicles you can go to http://yoursite.com/make/buick and it will list all vehicles that have 'Buick' in the make field.

    There is also an easy way to add makes to your menu. Go to the admin area and click on 'Appearance' then select 'Menus'. In the upper right hand corner of the page you will see a button that says 'Screen Options', click this and a menu will drop down that allows you to add a variety of selections to the page, one of them is 'Make'. If you check the box next to it it will add a section to the page that will allow you to add menu links to specific makes.

    I hope this information will help you along and didn't confuse things further. If you need any more assistance on this let me know.

    Thanks so much Jay,

    This is amazing. So you mean to say that these cars relatd to Buick in our example can be connected to a log image image of Buick somwewhere on the index or other pages? Right?

    Thanks

    Yep, you are absolutely correct. I do exactly that for several sites I manage. I have a logo bar where visitors can click on a logo (like Buick) and it takes them directly to a page with all Buicks.

    You can also do the same thing with Model and Body Style. Thus you can create a link to all 'trucks' or all 'sedans'. On one of the sites I manage I use body style icons and link those to their search result pages.

    later,
