I'm running code on my Product List page. First time on page get 4 items. if I refresh page, I'll get 6, then 4, then 5 etc. I can't see any reason for this. I checked my query and it's always same. If someone could point me in the right direction, that would be helpful.

$products = $layer->getProductCollection()
  • What is $numbers in your code? how do you get it? Feb 11, 2017 at 3:04
  • They are a list of part numbers that I get from another api call. This is set up as an attribute. The query from Magento DB always returns 18 items, but when I view $products->getItems(). Sometimes it has 4,5, or 6 items. It varies almost every time

  • If you can log your collection query with code $product->printLogQuery(true); after you get collection and match each time it changes item count. Feb 11, 2017 at 6:25
  • Did that, the queries are exact but one returned 4 and the next returned 5. It's the internal _items array that keeps changing

  • Do you have URL for this? Because of queries are correct it should give you same results. Feb 11, 2017 at 6:38

Figured out this was due to a couple issues. Trying to filter on an attribute that wasn't added to search_results.xml. I added that as a field and it still didn't work at first, but then I changed the code to use addFieldToFilter and it worked. I was also trying to use a custom collection and it didn't support paging. I changed it back to the productCollection.
