Manufacturer Drop down List and Page
« on: August 18, 2017, 04:10:50 PM »
So I want a drop down list (text -scroll-able) of my manufacturers.
I created a a Block:  (what is with the lower case manufacturer one already there?) 

Custom Block Name:  Manufacturers (made this plural due to the lower case one)
Custom Block Title: Manufacturers
Use block wrapper (appearance): Automatic
Listing Data Source: Manufacturers (from drop down list)
Limit: I tired nothing , 10 and 20

I then put it in the Template Layout.  I tried header, content and footer.
Each time it breaks something and all I get is a blank white page on the site.

???

The other thing I would like is a page that  list all Manufacturers by their respective icon.

In either the Drop down list or the ICON page, when manufacturer is clicked it would take you to another page listing the categories in which I have products in stock for the particular manufacturer.

When you see white page please go in admin and check latest error in log

This issue should be fixed in 1.2.11 please try http://forum.abantecart.com/index.php/topic,5542.msg23963.html#msg23963

That sorted the auto Manufacturer page creation.
Now I just need to figure out how to create a drop down list (scrolling) for Manufacturers. 

First - is their a description for each of the "Use block wrapper (appearance)" settings looks? (visually)
Have looked in DOCs and Google and found nothing.

In regards to the drop down scroll list.
from my searches I will assume this is not written into the control system for boxes or elsewhere.?
It should be an option instead just a # limit. Ideally they would work together so one could control size of drop down box/list.
