I need to create category: "Water". Then to add some manufacturers to this category.

Then when I click over water category link firstly sholud displayed all manufactures inside this category, after clicking manufacture name should be reirected to page with products.

How to do this in Open Cart?

A simple way to show the manufacturer among the category, for demonstration purposes, would be under your catalog/controller/product/category.php file.

Find:

Code: Select all

'name'        => $result['name'],
add below:

Code: Select all

'manufacturer' => html_entity_decode($result['manufacturer'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'),
In catalog/view/theme/your_theme/template/product/category.twig file,

starting from this location:

Code: Select all

<div class="row"> {% for product in products %}
until:

Code: Select all

{% endfor %} </div>
you can use:

Code: Select all

{{ product.manufacturer }}

Where can I find documentation about methods in OpenCart?

Can you demonstrate some code? How to display manufacturers firstly on the page?

In the exception of the openbay libraries, controllers and models, the structure is pretty much identical with the ways to call a specific method between controllers or loading a model, library or a theme file from either PHP or jQuery Ajax requests.

Thanks, it's good code.
It does not work on the main "featured products" module.

Can you help?

For products featured module, in catalog/controller/extension/module/featured.php file,

simply replace the added line:

Code: Select all

'manufacturer' => html_entity_decode($result['manufacturer'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'),
with:

Code: Select all

'manufacturer' => html_entity_decode($product_info['manufacturer'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'),

The latest instructions above are about the featured module, not about the category page itself which is why while using the paging class, you don't notice the manufacturer info.
