Custom Filtering:

With the Custom Filtering you can filter products by:

  2. Manufacturers

If you leave the above 2 fields empty then all products will be selected. Keep in mind that the 2 above filters work in conjunction with each other. That means that if you select a Category called Category 1 and a Manufacturer called Manufacturer 1 then the module will show products that belong to the category Category 1 and at the same time they belong to the Manufacturer Manufacturer 1.

In the field Items count you can limit the total products shown in the module. Default is 8.
