Featured Brands Menu
A list of featured brands displayed in the footer, offering another way to search for items.
Before you start this tweak, it's a good idea to run through our preparation checklist below:
- Read through the Getting Started Guide to get a better sense of how the Control Panel, Database and Front End store interact.
- Learn our recommended Simple Workflow. This makes the implementation process as easy as possible.
- Create a new Staging Theme for this tweak. This allows you to preview any changes before they are visible to live customers.
Step 1: Open the Footer Template
The footer template can be found here
Before adding the featured brands code, you will need to make a very minor change to the footer menu in order to allow space for the featured brands. You will need to update
col-md-3 within the
[%menu id:'web_footer'%] function.
Step 2: Add the Code into the Template
Paste the following code into the footer template after the closing
[%/cache%] tag around the menu.
<!-- Footer Featured Brands --> [%thumb_list type:'content' content_type:'brand' limit:'6' sortby:'sortorder' filter_content:''%] [%param *header%] <div class="col-12 col-md-3 text-md-left"> <ul class="nav flex-column"> <li class="nav-item"><h4 class="nav-link py-0">Featured Brands</h4></li> [%/param%] [%param *body%] <li class="nav-item"><a href="[@URL@]" class="nav-link">[@name@]</a></li> [%/param%] [%param *footer%] </ul> </div> [%/param%] [%/thumb_list%]
