Hi all,

At the moment your product names probably look like: BRAND NAME - Product description. Sometimes this looks ugly because the product names can become quite long, and some products are 2 lines and some are not, which messes up the grid layout.

For some shops, like mine, brands are important. So I had the guys from alt-team create an add-on that imo adds some cool stuff to cs-cart.

It adds the following:

list / category view has the choice:

variant 1:
brand name (pulled from manufacturer feature)
product name

variant 2:
product name (like the original cs-cart view)

Second thing it does is make the product page look like:

Product name
brand: brand name (under product name, called from manufacturer feature. Links to manufacturer / brand page where customers can read more info about the brand)

See pictures :

I'm personally very happy with the add-on, as I always found the way cs-cart handles brands was a bit too much put away.

If there is some interest I will put this online soon for you to download for free, although a donation would be very much appreciated.

This is so brilliant, its a must that product should got their own brand show in the product page.
I wonder if the brand you put manually product by product in admin setting?
or is it automatically? im interested to see the admin configuration for this details.
thank you for sharing this Flow. really appreciate this.

Vidan, you simply:

Set up a feature called manufacturer.
Make a variant for each brand.
Add the correct brand to your product.

That's it. The add-on will pull up the brand that belongs to the product and puts it on top of the product name for list / grid and under the product name for the product page.

I'll try to put it online tomorrow.

Flow,

I would love to try this add-on as well. I have some programmers who are supposed to be working on an add-on that integrates Cloud zoom (a free alternative to Magic Zoom) and will be providing it when ready to the forum.

Does this add-on work with CS-Cart 2.2.4 (Professional edition)?

I'm not having much luck setting this up.

I love this part of it! Awesome!

--------
Second thing it does is make the product page look like:

Product name
brand: brand name (under product name, called from manufacturer feature. Links to manufacturer / brand page where customers can read more info about the brand)
--------

However, in doing so, it hides the catalog number. Is there any way to have them BOTH with this appearing below the catalog number or to the right or left of it instead?

I have no idea but probably not.... I keep using 2.24 for now because my cart is customized a lot. You can try though :)

I don't need it just yet myself, because I'm still using 2.24. I'll look into it though....
