Hello,

It's possible to show the brands with a dropdown at sidebar?

Thanks

Out of the box the module doesn't have this feature, but it is possible by creating a custom module.
How would you like this dropdown to work?

What I wanted to see is if there is a possibility to display a drop-down menu that replaces the current list of brands, simply with the title "Brands" and a drop-down menu that allows selecting each brand, and when selected go to the page of that brand.

Thanks

\XLite\Module\QSL\ShopByBrand\View\BrandsBlock is the widget that renders the sidebar block.
You are likely to replace its template from your custom module and add a JavaScript that changes the page on selecting a brand in the dropdown.

Hello,

I want to know if it is possible for vendors to add and manage their own brands. I have x-cart v5 MultiVendor version.

On the MultiVendor module settings page there is a setting that will allow vendors to add new brands when editing products: "Vendor access to global attributes".
However, brands are shared between vendors, and only administrators can edit information about brands (logo, description, ...).

With v4 each vendor can add and edit their own manufacturers.
It is possible to do the same with v5?

The brands module uses the attributes logic built into X-Cart 5. The brand field is just an attribute field.
In X-Cart there is no function for vendors to have attribute values which other vendors cannot see. Any value that a vendor enters into an attribute field becomes available to other vendors too.
I believe you can change this logic from a custom module, but I'm not sure how complex that modification will be.

And could it be we add and enable an admin with just the role of managing brands?
