Hi all,

I am new to OpenCart (using 1.5.0.5) and PHP but have been working hard on the shop and got most things customized by looking online. I've been stuck on this particular issue for hours however:

I am trying to make a link to the manufacturers page from the menu and left column, as if 'manufacturers' is an extra category. I made a new category and called it manufacturers, then I tried change the hyperlink of this category to the actual manufacturers hyperlink. The current hyperlink for the newly created manufacturers category (via the database and php, so I can't just look for the link and replace it...) links to: http://localhost/store/index.php?route= ... ry&path=65 however I want it to link to: https://localhost/store/index.php?route ... nufacturer.

I just really want to use the different advantages that both the categories and manufacturers index offer, but the manufacturers index is too well hidden in my opinion.

The same issue applies to the category box on the left hand side. Does anyone have any idea how to approach this problem?

Thank you very very much.

Kostijn

I managed to add the manufacturer echo and link in the menu bar :)! If you want to do this and need help, please let me know and I'll post it here. You need to change the stylesheet, header.php, and header.tpl. It took me a while to figure out how to exactly do this.

Well, help yourselfs, by using something like listed below, and eventually changing the Link to
get Manufactureres, instead of what's listed by Extension Default. OR THEN, mention your OC
Version and Theme used, if you expect someone else, to possibly care, to be of assistance. :'(
