  • Brands sidebox

    I am trying to switch my brands from the listed sidebox to the dropdown sidebox. When I get it switched I just get a [manufacturers] in the drop down instead of getting the list of manufacturers.
    Any hints what could be wrong?
    Thanks!

    I have a hybrid of several templates on the site I'm building and I ran into this problem initially.

    I was able to compare two templates and get it to display as a drop down eventually.

    One huge helper for me is to use the "Inspect Element" feature of google chrome. Just find a 3dcart site that has what you want, right click on the drop down and inspect element. On the bottom of the window you'll be able to see pretty much everything in the code. html css js, the works.

    My site is not launched yet or I'd say go to mine. If you can't get it working, let me know and I'll dig in the code to see what it was I had to fix. Can't remember off the top of my head.

      Here is the code from my frame.html file: (beta.aebike.com to see it in action)

      Code:
      <!--START: FRAME_MANUFACTURER-->
      <form name="mfg" id="mfg" method="get" action="search_groups.asp">
      <div class="product-catalog">
      <h6>Brands</h6>
      <select name="manf" onChange="this.form.submit();" class="form-input">
      <option value="0" selected>Select Brand</option>
      <!--START: manufacturer_format-->
      <option value="[mfgid]">[manufacturer]</option>
      <!--END: manufacturer_format-->
      </select>
      </div>
      </form><br>
      <!--END: FRAME_MANUFACTURER-->

        Mine is somewhat a hack job like I mentioned, but check it out.
        You won't be able to simply copy and paste because of the different naming for the default_modified.css style names, but you should be able to compare and get it working. -Mike
