Dear friends!

We are glad to announce the release of one more new add-on from Alt-team “Shop by Brands” add-on.

CS-Cart "Shop by Brands" add-on allows the administrator to create A-Z block so that shoppers could use it to shop by brands available in a store. This add-on uses the Manufacturer product feature created in the admin back-end.

Features:
  • ability to choose whether to display only letters (A-Z) or both letters and numbers (A-Z, 0-9) in the Shop by Brands block with links to the brands;
  • automatic generation of brand lists;
  • a brand logo is displayed next to every brand;
  • you click on a brand (for example, Samsung) and see all products of this brand.
Current price is $49 $69 (new features are added. Please, see post #15)

More details, documentation and demo are available here.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Beat regards, Alt-team

It would be cool if you could integrate the brand add-on I'm using, which shows the brand on top of the product name and also shows a clickable brand at the product page.

Please see: http://flowing-webde...r-brand-add-on/

Hello Flow!

It is really a good idea to add a clickable brand on the product details page. The add-on developer will add it in the next add-on version if our add-on users are interested.

Yes, that would be nice. Also, I like to see the brand on top of the product name in grid & list view. So we get:

Brand
Product name

We should be able to turn this feature on and off (in case a use already has their brand in their product name).

I'd also love to see the ability to show more features than just the brand, so for example, we can make a page that shows:

"cars with 4 wheels", or "skincare for dry skin"

Hello everyone!

Thank you for your recommendations. We plan to release a new version of the "Shop by Brands" add-on in January - February.

It will include
  • the possibility to select what Brand letters to display in a block (now all letters A-Z are displayed);
  • link to the Brand page with a logo on a product details page;
  • a setting to display/ not to display a Brand in a product grid and list.
We have written down some other recommendations and think over adding them as well.

Best regards, Alt-team

Great! I'd also like to be able to turn the logo on the product page on and off and just keep the link. It might look messy having all these brand logo's on the product page.

More details, documentation and demo are available here.

The demo links to a sitemap. Not a brands page: http://demo.alt-team...ch=sitemap.view

Flows version has the following:
  • no Alphabetical index. (or at least the option to turn this function off)
  • brand description text on brand page.
  • link to brand page on the features tab
  • ability to add brand logo to the features page.
  • SEO friendly url for brand pages.
Please add this to your next version.

I would also like to request the exact same functionality to be usable for feature descriptions. So that its possible to create a page to fully describe a certain feature and then show all products that have this feature. The only thing that is needed to do this is to separate such features from brands.

Dear P-Pharma!

Thank you for your recommendations, we will keep them in mind but can't promise to implement everything you request in the next version.

Demo link works fine now. See, for example, here http://demo.alt-team...w&variant_id=86

It is possible to add a description to a brand by default and choose a SEO friendly url for brand pages (feature variants tab in the admin back-end).

Dear vidan!

The new version is in progress and will be ready by the end of this week. We'll test it and describe new features. Thus, the release of the new version will be announced next week. The add-on developer was busy with other tasks, that's why we've missed the promised deadline. Thank you.

Hello everyone!

We are glad to announce a promised release of a new "Shop by Brands" add-on version.

The new version includes the following features:
  • A setting to display a brand name and logo or just a brand name on a product details page and in a product grid and list. After clicking a brand you will be redirected to the brand page where all products of this brand are shown.
  • A setting to display brand letters in a block - you can display all letters (A-Z), all letters (A-Z) but inactive/unused letters will not be clickable or you can display only active letters. For example, if you have products by brands started with A, C, G, N, M, only these letters will be displayed in a block.
  • Ability to choose or enter your own alphabet.
  • Brands on a page "All Brands started with X" can be displayed horizontally or vertically.
Everyone who has already purchased the add-on can download a new version from the order details page or please contact us if any problem here.

Please note! If you already purchased the add-on, you need to uninstall the add-on, upload new files and install the add-on again. After that check the add-on settings.

With the release of the new version we have to increase the add-on price. Now the Shop by Brands add-on costs $69.

Detailed description of the add-on, documentation and demo are available here.

Feel free to ask any questions.

I bought this add-on and installed it per the instructions, but it doesn't work. Instead of using it for "Brand" I'm using it for "Author." The word "Author" shows up on the page OK, but the actual author's name doesn't. See this page for example:

http://www.kingsleyp...-a-hartley.html

Any ideas?
