How do I show a full list of brands in my store? (Blueprint)


This requires editing the code of your store. See Getting Help for avenues of assistance.

These instructions apply to our free, legacy Blueprint Themes that have not been customized. As always, we recommend backing up your current theme customizations before making any changes.

In many legacy Blueprint themes, a limited list of brands will appear in the footer. It will only display the brands applied to the most products in your store. Underneath the short list will be a link that brings shoppers to the brands page of your store which will display a full list of brands.

Limited Brand List in the Footer

To display a the full list within the footer, follow the steps outlined below.

1. In the BigCommerce control panel, go to Storefront Design › My Themes, then click Edit HTML/CSS.

Edit HTML/CSS link

2. In the list of Files used by this template in the top-left of the HTML editor, click on Footer.html. If your brands page is listed somewhere other than the footer of your store, try a different panel from this list. As long as the brands appear on your homepage, it will be located in one of these panels.

3. In the HTML code to the right, locate the panel %%Panel.SideShopByBrand%%. The location varies depending on the template. In some templates it's called %%Panel.BrandList%%.
