I'm using Magento 1.9.3 to make my store, but I came to a custom layout problem right now. I tryed by my own looking in similar topics over there but couldn't figure it out.

I need to put my custom attributes in different places instead of tabs.

I have the "Informação Adicional" (en_US: Additional Info [attributes]) that I need in the right column.


enter image description here


I tried what @MauroNigrele suggested, but without success. So I tried to copy the php instructions from frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml into a block I use in the right column, as you may guess, not worked (I'm a newbie).

Now I thought on doing something that may be easier. Create a new block that I could use in the right column, showing the "Aditional Info" tab, instead of a collateral tab, where it is right now.

So, it should show me the Aditional Info where previously I wanted to show only the tracklist.

I supposed it may have something to do with this kind of code:

{{block type="core/template" name="tracklist" template="frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml"}}

But I still couldn't figure it out how to do that, I readed other topics with something similar, but I couldn't understand them clearly.

They are as follows: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13710077/calling-an-attribute-in-a-cms-block-in-magento?rq=1 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13883139/how-to-add-product-attribute-on-product-page-via-cms-block-magento

Shortly, I want to put the "Informação Adicional" (Additional Info) in the right column. As I saw, their php file is from: frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml

It may be useful to say I use a custom theme: Ultimo.


I tried to work with the default and rwd catalog.xml, moving the additional block into the right column, but it doesn't show in the website.


I did what @ Ahmed El Awadi saidin local.xml, and now it shows in the right column: There was no 404 CMS page configured or found. The code used is:

<action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog"><alias>additional</alias><title>Additional Information</title><block>catalog/product_view_attributes</block><template>catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml</template></action>

  • did you try to edit your xml instead of working with phtml files Feb 9 '16 at 14:17
  • In Xml find block name="product.attributes" and move it <reference name="right"> Feb 9 '16 at 14:19
  • in Ultimo >> local.xml link 551 this is attribute table call. cop this to line 487 under <reference name="right"> Feb 9 '16 at 14:22
  • I tryed over webftp, without success, I'll download the file and open with Dreamweaver to copy the right line. Will update asap. Feb 9 '16 at 14:45
  • it will work if you are using 2-columns-right.phtml template Feb 9 '16 at 14:48

You can use the exactly same approach that is used for "Fabricante" You just need to change the attribute code for the new one, in the right template ie:


<div class="product-sarasa">
    <?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getSarasa(), 'sarasa') ?>

To find the right template file just activate "template hints" in:

System > Configuration > Advanced - Developer > Debug > Template Path Hints.

  • I tried this solution, but it may have been misunderstood. The "Fabricante" is what I wrote in the short_description when I add the product. I tryed looking into the files, but all I could find out is that the block name is italic Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_View_Attributes italic and that those that I want to modify, doesn't have a specific name, at least not in the frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml as I added them as new attributes. I'm still searching for some documentation or another topics who could help me. I think is a hard coding question :/ Feb 8 '16 at 16:44
  • Even if I show the complete Maage_Catalog_Block_Product_View_Attributes in the right column will be fine too. Maybe copying the .phtml code into the block displayed in the right column? I'll try Feb 8 '16 at 17:01
  • I copied the php code into the block I'm using in the right column, it didn't work ou Feb 8 '16 at 17:06
  • @whiteisred90 Every product attribute type must be printed in a different way I used Fabricante as a reference. So if you want to echo a text attribute the technique it's a bit different as used for a select or multi-select one. Would be nice to see what have you already tried, please update the question with the actual code. Feb 8 '16 at 22:07
  • any hints in what I missed? Feb 10 '16 at 23:03
