I want to separate attributes according to product category id on product compare page. means on ../catalog/product/compare/list.phtml

anyone can help me?


Try with

$_product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($_item->getId());
$ids = $_product->getCategoryIds();
$categoryId = (isset($ids[0]) ? $ids[0] : null);

I know that loading a product in a loop may lead to performance issues but how many products can you have in a comparison list? I think it's safe to say, not that many.

  • $_item is already a product instance, so $ids = $_item->getCategoryIds() should work as well. If not, add the missing fields/joins to the collection. – Fabian Schmengler Nov 11 '14 at 10:02
