I've created a media attribute, and now i'm triyng to display this attribute to my product view page.

I've tried this code below:

$hdr_img = $cur_product->getResource()->getAttribute('header_img');
if ($hdr_img)
    $ban_img = $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($cur_product, 'header_img')->resize(1600, 312);
    echo $ban_img;

But all I got is a :

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getResource() on unknown in /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/design/frontend/sns_simo/default/template/catalog/product/view.phtml:132 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Template.php(241): include() #1 /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Template.php(272): Mage_Core_Block_Template->fetchView('frontend/sns_si...') #2 /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Template.php(286): Mage_Core_Block_Template->renderView() #3 /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Abstract.php(919): Mage_Core_Block_Template->_toHtml() #4 /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Text/List.php(43): Mage_Core_Block_Abstract->toHtml() #5 /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Block/Abstract.php(919): Mage_Core_Block_Text_List->_toHtml() #6 /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/code/core/ in /var/www/virtual/unikamakeup.com/htdocs/app/design/frontend/sns_simo/default/template/catalog/product/view.phtml on line 132

$cur_product is undefined. Says so right there in the stack trace. You need to make sure that $cur_product is actually set to something before you try to access any methods on it.

You might include the code that defines $cur_product so we may better assist you.

Additionally, a nice way to check if your product is valid is doing this:




This will output a mostly human readable array of the current variable's data.

Its Working code and i tested in my magento

$hdr_img = $_product->getHeaderImg();

if ($hdr_img)


$ban_img = $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'header_img')->resize(1600, 312);

echo $ban_img;


Have you assigned image for the given media attribute in images tab in Manage product section.
