  1. i have tried over and over to get manufacturers page to show up on home page. not visible. What am i Doing Wrong?

    1. Hello, Mary!

      I’m sorry to see you’re having trouble. I’m not quite sure what part of the process you’re experiencing difficulties at. However, this article only covers how to edit and create the banner. If you’re trying to add a banner to your homepage, you will need to go to the Extensions > Modules section. You can modify your banners’ settings in that section. You can simply modify the configuration of your Manufacturer banner to display where you’d like on the homepage, via the options available there. I found the settings you can modify for this feature in OpenCart’s documentation here. I hope this helps!


  2. i m already did as u said above but i can not display manfucature logo horizontal. please let me know thx


    please see u image guide last image. i want make it like that.

    1. 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.

    i do not know how to make it horizontal ?

    1. 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: https://demo.opencart.com/.

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