    Great post, thank you – I didn’t know about the possibility to add product attribute output handlers.
    My first goto solution would have been attribute frontend models – this is another really nifty way to do it.
    I find it astonishing how many ways there are to accomplish most things in Magento…. *shakes head slowly*

    Thanks for the great post!

    I’m looking for a way to hyde a category top image when an attribute is selected.
    Basically I added to the manufacture attributes a custom cms block at the top… unique for each brand.
    The result is that when I click on the brand attribute the page refresh displaying all the product with the selected brand but at the top I got the category image + the specific attribute block.
    Is it possible in to hyde the category image when an attribute is selected with xml?
