Well, I am working on my first Magento website. I am using Magento 1.9.2 & lunxury theme 1.2.X

I am trying to add products in left navigation bar manually.

What I have done so far

In my app\design\frontend\mgstheme\luxury\template\mgs\mpanel\template\category-navigation.phtml File I put this code.

$products = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->getCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('*');

<ul id="content-navigation">
       <?php echo $_menu ?>
              <?php foreach ($products as $_product) { ?>
                    <li><?php echo $_product->getName(); ?></li>
                <?php } ?>

for now, its printing all products but I want all products under their category name.

I am attaching screenshot for reference here jemmy proof lock to cupboard are the categories and after that its loading all products enter image description here enter image description here

  • You need to override this block into one custom extension. In that you have to create menu like you want, means currently it return only category but you need to do code for adding product into list with category. Oct 21 '16 at 13:59

Try this:

$_product = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($category_id)
 ->addAttributeToFilter('status', 1) // enabled
 ->addAttributeToFilter('visibility', 4) //visibility in catalog,search
 ->setOrder('price', 'ASC'); //sets the order by price
  • So if there are X categories on the page, you plan on loading X times a category model, and X times a collection of products? This will destroy the page load time. Oct 21 '16 at 10:36
  • @Mayers if you have any good idea then pls help to parish. Oct 21 '16 at 10:39
