I am using magento ver1.9.2 and GPMD.

I would love to ask that how to show related products on GPMD theme.I was able to show it when I use default one.However I cannot now.

I think I should put or rename some files.Do you have some tips or know how to do?I want to know it.That would be so helpful to me.

  • where do you want to display related product?

If you want to display related products in Product view page Try adding

<block type="catalog/product_list_related" name="catalog.product.related" as="related" template="catalog/product/list/related.phtml"/>

under the

<block type="catalog/product_view" name="product.info" template="catalog/product/view.phtml">

like below in the catalog.xml

<reference name="content">
        <block type="catalog/product_view" name="product.info" template="catalog/product/view.phtml">
            <block type="catalog/product_list_related" name="catalog.product.related" as="related" template="catalog/product/list/related.phtml"/>

and in your themes product view.phtml

add code

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('catalog.product.related') ?>

where you want to display related products

  • Hello Piyush, Could you please tell me more?I could find "catalog.xml" and add the 1st one under the 2nd one. Then should I add the 3rd one in "view.phtml"?And where should I put 4th one in? Anyways thanks for giving tips,your tips would help me.

  • I'm sorry but I misunderstood, I should add first one under the second one.And then,I should add 4th one in "view.phtml".Right? But it does not exist in products page..

No idea about this theme coding.

But below code you can add wherever you want to show related products of the product. Here $_product is the product you want to show related products.

$related_products = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')
     foreach($related_prods as $related){
      echo $related->getName(); 
  • Thank you for giving a tip,Akhil. Should I add it in just a phtml file?

  • In GPMD theme if want to show in product page then put in: /app/design/frontend/YOUR_THEME/template/catalog/product/view.phtml & later move this code where design looks fine. Development UI experience will be required. If helps feel free to upvote the answer :) Nov 30 '16 at 9:30
  • I just put it there.However it shows just code like $related_products =.....
