Category of product doesn't show in Breadcumb and URL My product is acessible via direct link, like this: mystore.com/product-name, when i see on list of category page, the url is mystore.com/category/product-name, i want force always show the category of this product.

In file app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Helper/Data.php you will find getBreadcrumbPath() function in which they look for the Mage::registry('current_category')

public function getBreadcrumbPath()
    {
        if (!$this->_categoryPath) {

            $path = array();
            if ($category = $this->getCategory()) {
                $pathInStore = $category->getPathInStore();
                $pathIds = array_reverse(explode(',', $pathInStore));

                $categories = $category->getParentCategories();

                // add category path breadcrumb
                foreach ($pathIds as $categoryId) {
                    if (isset($categories[$categoryId]) && $categories[$categoryId]->getName()) {
                        $path['category'.$categoryId] = array(
                            'label' => $categories[$categoryId]->getName(),
                            'link' => $this->_isCategoryLink($categoryId) ? $categories[$categoryId]->getUrl() : ''
                        );
                    }
                }
            }

            if ($this->getProduct()) {
                $path['product'] = array('label'=>$this->getProduct()->getName());
            }

            $this->_categoryPath = $path;
        }
        return $this->_categoryPath;
    }

in if condition

public function getCategory()
{
    return Mage::registry('current_category');
}

As you are going from the home page that time Mage::registry('current_category') is not set thats why category path is not getting display.

if your url is mystore.com/category/product-name then it will display breadcrumb

As you mentioned I want force always show the category of this product.

Solution :

You can set current_category before product page loads but Product can be from multiple categories.

OR

create template file create the product list and set anchor by full product url.

OR

Edit in core file app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Helper/Data.php (not good practice and its abstract file)

Login adminPanel

GOto

system->configuration->catalog->catalog->Search Engine Optimizations

and set Use Categories Path for Product URLs to yes

Then clear cache and do reindex and check

  • It is already configured that way. The product displayed on the homepage when I click the URL on it is mystore.com/product-name, and yes i cleaned all caches.. – Kauan Feb 17 '17 at 11:49
  • @user1533106 provide code that you are using for product collection – Murtuza Zabuawala Feb 17 '17 at 11:51
  • {{block type='catalog/product_list' category_id='2' grid_column_count='2' hide_toolbar='1' template='catalog/product/list.phtml'}} category_id=2 is "Default Category" – Kauan Feb 17 '17 at 11:53
  • I want block direct acess like this: mystore.com/product-name, and force this: mystore.com/category/product-name – Kauan Feb 17 '17 at 11:54
  • i guess i found the problem, on menu Catalog - Manage URL Rewrites, this have rules to rewrite like: category/product-name, and just product-name, need configure category anchor or anything like this? i want display all products on home page from default category... – Kauan Feb 17 '17 at 12:14
