In the new version of Shop By Brand module (v5.2.5) I had to re-do the template for the Brands page in the storefront. Now the page is 100% responsive, but uses a different markup and styles.

This won't affect storeowners using default theme (including the color variations that come with ColorSchemes module).

But this may affect users having custom X-Cart 5 themes. Please check your Brands page after upgrading the module and update your styles if necessary.

The new version of Shop By Brand module (5.2.6) includes the following improvements:
- now you can enable pagination for the Brands page and set the default number of brands per page (check the module settings page)
- also it allows you to configure the width and the height of brand images on the Brands page (it is on the "Look & Feel" -> Images page)

The new module version has the same HTML markup and should not affect custom CSS tweaks. However, it uses different PHP classes and templates (see below), so some custom modules may require extra tweaks to be compatible with the new version. Please try the upgrade on a local dev copy of your site first!

The changes in the source code are:
- \XLite\Module\QSL\ShopByBrand\View\ItemsList\Brand \Customer\Brand widget class replaces the \XLite\Module\QSL\ShopByBrand\View\BrandsPage class
- templates from the skins/default/en/modules/QSL/ShopByBrand/brands_page/ directory have been moved to the skins/default/en/modules/QSL/ShopByBrand/items_list/brand/ directory

Shop By Brand v5.2.7 has been released.

It uses the new method of adding items to the primary storefront menu (now, when editing the menu, the Brands link appears as "{brands}" instead of the direct URL).

No other changes have been made, so you may skip this upgrade and wait for the next.

Hi!

Yes, it is in my long-term plans.
Unfortunately, most likely it won't appear in the module in the short term (not within the next month).

Hello, Great work I really love the mod.

I would like for the brand logo to appear above the product title on my product description pages. Is this possible?

Thank you for the feedback!

It is possible with a tweak implemented as a custom module.

Shop By Brand module displays the brand logo via this template file:
skins/customer/modules/QSL/ShopByBrand/product/parts/brand.twig

The template uses the @ListChild directive to make the logo appear in the "product.details.page.info" and "product.details.quicklook.info" widget lists (that are displayed below the product title).

So, to move the logo to a different place you should "substitute" this file with a custom one that will attach it to different "widget lists" by changing names of the lists in @ListChild directives (or the weight parameters).

In your case changing the weight will likely be enough.

You can enable the Webmaster mode (Look & Feel -> Layout) to see what displays in which "widget list" appear on your site pages.

The new 5.3.6 version of Shop By Brand module is available for downloading.

It comes with a number of fixes for the following problems:
- selecting "None" as the attribute to store brands resulted into a fatal error
- brand pages not being added to the XML Sitemap
- deleting the attribute configured to store brands caused orphaned database records
- broken layout of the Brands drop-down field on the product search page (Crisp White theme)
- pager widget having wrong styles on the page listing brands in the storefront (Crisp White theme)
