Brand Select

Brand Select is both a block and a shortcode that adds a select dropdown with all your brands, so your users can select the brand and see the products in it.


Following you find the options of the block.

  • Title: you can enter a custom title before this block
  • Paginate items: choose whether to paginate the items or not
  • Items per page: if you paginate items, you can choose how many items per page to show
  • Show only brands of the current category: enable this option to dinamically show only the brands of the current category. This option is useful if you are displaying this block on a category page or on a filtered page.
  • Enter the list of category slugs (separated with a comma) to show. Leave empty to show all categories. This option overrides the previous option.
  • Enter the list of brand slugs (separated with a comma) to show. Leave empty to show all brands.
  • Enter the parent brand ID to show. All the sub-brands will be displayed. Leave empty to show all brands.
  • Order by – choose here how to sort the displayed brands:
    • None
    • Name
    • Slug
    • Term ID
    • Description
  • Order – if any order option has been selected, choose whether to sort them:
    • Ascending
    • Descending
  • Show items count for each brand: this allows you to show a counter with the total number of products in each brand.
  • Hide brands with no products: choose whether or not to hide brands that do not include any product.
