I use this link : https://www.odoo.com/apps/7.0/product_brand/, to create a brand for my product. But in odoo v8 there are an error. Someone can help please? Or know how to do it ?

Because the field "categ_id" doesn't exist in the new version v8 of table product. How to solve it?

hi Seraphine,

I am on v8 and have successfully installed product_brand in a test. It is officially not ported to v8 yet and I wanted to test whether it might just work 'as is'

actually there is a field 'categ_id' in v8. The dsiplay name is Internal Category and it appears on the Accounting tab of the product Form view [product.template] as well as the variants Form view [product.product]. Mayb e you have no Accounting installed in v8 yet which is maybe why you did not have the categ_ig field yet.

I have another issue and maybe you can help with that. As I sais I want to test whether product_brand works in v8. I can install it but am not 100% whether it does what it was supposed to do. I don't have a running 7.0 machine running, so I can not verify that and maybe you can help me with that. Mainly I have 2 issues I find strange and would like to countercheck those against 7.0

  1. the Brand Name appears in the Accounting tab of the product Form view in v8. This seems a weird place to me. I would expect that in the "Information tab" or even in the  header right next to the Name of the product. It that the same in 7.0?
  2. I can assign a brand to a Customer or Supplier but in the Contacts Form view there is no field showing the brand (or even brands) this customer is related to. Do you have such a field in a 7.0 environment?

I have downloaded it from the apps store and installed it on my 8.0 installation. I'm working with the new website themes and the menu "Shop by  brand" does not show up in the website?

I do the modification for the product_brand on v8 and now it's working. 

The brand name appear clearly. Do you want to install it? I can sent you a copy.

Have a nice day,



yes, that would be great if you could send a copy "gw [AT] irisgermanica.com". I will put it in the OCA repository then.
