OpenCart comes with a pre-built manufacturers banner that displays your products manufacturers. Since these manufacturers may already have built brand awareness with customers, using there recoginzable logos on your website can help customers decide to purchase products from your website. You will need to find the images you want to use for each manufacturer prior to adding them to the banner. The manufacturers banner can be edited in the OpenCart Dashboard.

  1. Log into your OpenCart Dashboard
  2. Go to System >> Design >> Banners
  3. opencart_banner_manufacturer_1

  4. Select the Manufacturers banner and click "Edit"
  5. If you need to delete the existing banners click "remove" next to each one you want to remove
  6. Now, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Add Banner"
  7. opencart_banner_manufacturer_2

  8. Type in the manufacturer name in the first box on the left
  9. opencart_banner_manufacturer_3

  10. Next, type the path to the manufacturer page. If you have not create a page for the manufacturer, when someone clicks on the logo in the banner they will see a "Page not found" message
  11. Click "Browse Files" to add the logo image for the manufacturer
  12. Click "Upload" to upload the image from your local computer
  13. Once the image has been uploaded, find the image in the image manager interface and double click on it
  14. opencart_banner_manufacturer_4

Hello Leo,

A scrolling banner is not standard function for the OpenCart software. However, you can find many extensions that provide this option: OpenCart Extensions: Scrolling Banner Search results.

Hello Hero,

Your image does not appear, can you please link it as a URL? The banner is horizontal by default, so I'm not sure what you mean without seeing an example. Here's the sample OpenCart site: http://demo.opencart.com/.

Please provide more information or at least a URL so that we can look at the issue in more depth.

Hello Yanto,

This tutorial does not teach you how to make a manufacturer logo horizontal. However, you can use a graphic tool to change the logo dimensions so that it is small enough for that purpose. In some cases though, this may make the logo unreadable, so you may need to speak with the owner of the logo to see if they have horizontal version of their logo that you can use. This very often the case with many manufacturer logos.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Regards,
Arnel C.
