sidebar area on a direct link to manufacturer

sidebar area on a direct link to manufacturer

I have a direct link to certain manufacturer attributes with the url formatted like this:[]=127


The problem is, when using that type of link, I no longer am able to see the sidebar shopping options (color,category,price attributes) that work fine in the regular catalog sidebars and the quick search sidebar.

I tried this into the catalog search xml in the quick search and it was fine, but  it did not work right for the advanced search, which I am using in this url string.

<reference name="right">
            <block type="catalog/layer_view" name="catalog.leftnav" before="-" template="catalog/layer/view.phtml"/>


Again the link is fine, the attributes are fine everywhere else, just need to know how to display the attributes on that type of direct link to the manufacturer with the advanced search.
