I've tried multiple snippets of code to add an item price to a specific block without success.

On the example item page :


I would like to add the product price in the right column block where I have put the text [INSERT PRICE HERE]

The following result happens from entering this code:

$this->getPriceHtml($_product, true);

enter image description here

The next snippet of code here results in the following :

    $productBlock = new Mage_Catalog_Block_Product;
    echo $productBlock->getPriceHtml($_product);

enter image description here

Can someone please help me achieve this in what you believe is the simplest way. For reference I am trying to add the price (not move the original) to the block identifier : block_product_secondary_bottom

  • You're calling PHP code in a static block? That won't work. Unless you are Ok to hard-code price in the block, you'll need to call a template atleast to display the prices.

you can not directly add the php code in the cms-block.

But you can call template and with in that template you can add php code. and create template app/design/frontend/YourPackage/YourTheme/template/Yourtemplatepath/yourTemplate.phtml

add this code

{{block type="core/template"  template="Yourtemplatepath/yourTemplate.phtml" }}

and add below code in template file yourTemplate.phtml file

$product = Mage::registry('current_product');
$block = $this->getLayout()->createBlock('catalog/product_price');
echo $block->getPriceHtml($product);

  • Hi thanks for the reply, I added the code to literally yourTemplate.phtml , and added the file to /Yourtemplatepath/yourTemplate.phtml ... but it is just showing the code in the file directly , check this page : fixlcdscreens.com/default/catalog/product/view/id/8226/s/…
