Featured Brands

Display a list of featured brand logos to increase customer confidence through recognition. When clicking on a logo, customers will be taken to a category page that shows all products identified with the brand. A "view all brands" link is also in place, which will take you to a newly created page that shows all brands.

Preparation Checklist

Before you start this tweak, it's a good idea to run through our Preparation Checklist below:

  • Read through the Introduction to Maropost Commerce Cloud Document 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.
  • The code snippet in this tweak doc uses Bootstrap 4, you may need to alter this code depending on what version of Bootstrap your theme is using. You can find out what version your theme is using here.

Coding Instructions

Step 1: Open the homepage template

The homepage template can be found here /httpdocs/assets/themes/[THEME-NAME]/templates/cms/home.template.html.

Step 2: Add the code into the template

Paste the following code into the template where you would like the element to appear. This is most commonly placed below the banner:

<!-- Featured Brands -->
[%thumb_list type:'content' content_type:'brand' limit:'6' filter_content:'' sortby:'sortorder'%]
    [%param *header%]
        <section class="featured-brands row text-center my-3" aria-label="Featured Brands">
            <div class="col-12">
                <h2>Featured Brands</h2>
                <div class="row align-items-center mb-2">
    [%param *body%]
                    <div class="brand-item col-6 col-md-4 col-lg-2">
                        <a href="[@URL@]">
                            <img class="img-fluid" src="[%ASSET_URL type:'content' id:'[@content_id@]'%][%param default%][%cdn_asset html:'0' library:'images'%]default_product.gif[%/cdn_asset%][%/param%][%/ASSET_URL%]" alt="[@content_name@]"/>
    [%param *footer%]
                <a href="[%url type:'content' id:'100'/%]">Show All Brands</a>

Step 3. Create a Brands Page

Learn how to set up a brands page which the 'Show All Brands' will link to here.

Please Note: The ID for the "Show All Brands" link will need to be substituted with the ID created in step 2, instead of 100.

<a href="[%url type:'content' id:'100'/%]">Show All Brands</a>
