Default Need help on Drop down Menu for Brand filter

After trying two different brand filters that you have posted, I've decided that this is the one I want to use on my site. Because it is already reversible, all I need now is to place it in a drop down menu. The problem is, the forum instructions are clear until step 5.

I haven't the slightest clue what you are talking about; specifically where do I place this PHP code? I am not a programmer; I don't know this stuff.... all I know is copy paste... you can't assume that I know.

<?php if (@$_GET['word']) { ?>

<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='-word']">[X] Remove brand filter</a></li>

<?php } else { ?>

<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=AOC Breeze']">AOC Breeze</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Augen']">Augen</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Boss Electric']">Boss Electric</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Coby']">Coby</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Crystalview']">Crystalview</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Curtis']">Curtis</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Cydle']">Cydle</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=eLocity']">eLocity</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Enspert']">Enspert</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Entourage']">Entourage</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Ican']">Ican</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Kaser']">Kaser</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Maxwest']">Maxwest</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Maylong']">Maylong</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=MID 70003']">MID 70003</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=MID 80003']">MID 80003</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Nextbook']">Nextbook</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Pandigital']">Pandigital</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=SkyTex']">SkyTex</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=7 Slim']">7 Slim</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=8 Touch']">8 Touch</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Sungale']">Sungale</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Superpad']">Superpad</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Sylvania']">Sylvania</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Universe']">Universe</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Velocity']">Velocity</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Wintec']">Wintec</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='word=Zenithink']">Zenithink</a></li>

<?php } ?>


1) Create a new Custom View named "Unordered Category List". Check the 'don't use layout' checkbox.

2) Add a Category List module to the module area.

2) Add the following code to the Category List module:

[category.list id='dfparent' before='<ul id="nav">' after='</ul>']
<a href="[]" title="[]">[]</a>
[category.list id='dfchild' before='<ul>' after='</ul>']
<a href="[]" title="[]">[]</a>
[category.repeat id='dfchild']

4) Update your store

5) Place the following code where you need your unordered list of categories to appear:

PHP Code:

$cats = str_replace(array("<div>","</div>"), array("",""), datafeedr_tag("Unordered Category List"));
echo $cats;

Did you add the code to a Widget View in the Factory? If so, after you update your store by clicking the [Update Settings Only] button, then you can go to Wordpress Admin Area > Appearance > Widgets and add the Brand Filter to your sidebar.

Question Re: Previous post question to drop down menu 5th step

Store ID: 36897
Website URL:
URL to page in question: NA

I am trying to create a drop down menu for one of my custom widget filter views I created and I have completed steps 1 - 4 of your instructions on how to create a drop down menu. But like the previous post's question I do not understand where you are suppose to add/place or insert the PHP code in step 5) of the drop down menu instructions?

Where do you place this PHP code:

$cats = str_replace(array("<div>","</div>"), array("",""), datafeedr_tag("Unordered Category List"));
echo $cats;

Do you mean place it in one of the widget filter views? In the widgets properties? In the wordpress template? In a post or a page in wordpress?

Thank you.

That code is for using in your WP template files.

I think this code might be better for you: /show...0421#post20421 That will create a drop down brand filter.
