If the Registered user click on "save design" button we are creating new product.

Issue : But if guest user click on "save design" button, we are displaying pop up box to register or login. once guest user logged in, **new Product is not creating****


protected function _createProduct($type, $doSave=true, $originalProduct, $newImagePath="") 
        $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product');

        $product->setDescription('what ever you need here');

        $customerId = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomerId();

        if ($doSave)

        return $product;


Now we can able to create new product once guest user click on button, but guest user is not logged in and we need to assign the Created product to Guest user similar to Registered user

<?php if (!Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn()): ?>
    <div id="ajaxlogin-login-window" style="display: none;">        
            <span><?php echo $this->__('Login into your Account 4') ?></span>

       <form action="<?php echo $this->getUrl('example/amasty/createSimpleProductAndRedirect', array('_secure'=>(!empty($_SERVER['HTTPS']) && $_SERVER['HTTPS']==='on'), 'id' => Mage::registry('current_product')->getId())) ?>" id="ajaxlogin-login-form">
            // form code login/Register in pop up box
        <script type="text/javascript">
            var ajaxLoginForm = new VarienForm('ajaxlogin-login-form', true);
            jQuery("#ajaxlogin-login-form").submit(function(e) {
    if (ajaxLoginForm.validator.validate()) {
            type: "POST",
            url: jQuery('#ajaxlogin-login-form').attr('action'),
        }).done(function(result) {
        }).fail(function() {
            alert('There is some error saving your design.');
<?php endif; ?>

what happens in wish list product , when a guest is adding a product to a wish list in the preDispatch method on controller they are checking whether the customer is logged in or not. If customer is guest then they set the current product's url customer session like this


so we can do the same here.

As i can see in the code that there you are creating a product and then setting the CreatedByCustomerId attribute of the product. so what we can do here is set the CreatedByCustomerId to some value and then save the product after that we can set the product id in the session and set the setBeforeAuthUrl() to a custom controller and redirect to the login page.

After the customer has logged in , customer will be taken to our custom controller which we had set in setBeforeAuthUrl() we can get the product id from customer session and load the product and set the CreatedByCustomerId to customer id as customer id and then save.

The way I would solve this is to listen to the generic controller predispatch event. I would then filter out for only my specific controller. Then check if the customer is logged in and if not, I'd store the data that you want in their session. Then let it flow normally for the login sequence. After the user logs in, I'd check to see if there is data in my session that should create the product and follow that workflow from there.




class Observer
    public function onControllerActionPredispatch($observer)
        if (
            $observer->getEvent()->getControllerAction()->getFullActionName() == 'my_module_controller_action' &&
        ) {
        else if (
            Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn() &&
        ) {
            // Either forward to a new action, or call your helper/model methods to do what you want.

In the above example, if the customer posts to your custom method and isn't logged in, the data is stored in the customer session and then they proceed to the login page (or the login form is shown). After they've logged in, if they have the custom data stored in the session, then you can either automatically create the product and add it to their cart, or forward them to an action that will do that for them.

  • Thanks , can you please tell how i can find values of my_module_controller_action & setMyModuleCustomProductInfo , so that i will replace correct values and check..... Commented Apr 6, 2017 at 19:42
  • If you just add the observer, you can output $observer->getEvent()->getControllerAction()->getFullActionName(). It's just your a string of your module prefix, the controller, and the action, all lowerecased. For example, if in my XML I defined blocks for my module as: <blocks><my_customModule><class>My_CustomModule_Block</class></my_customModule></blocks>, then your module prefix is: my_moduleName (the same name you'd put before the / when referencing blocks/models/helpers).

  • So if I had a controller My_CustomModule_ProductController and the action is addCustomProduct then the full action name is my_custommodule_product_addcustomproduct.

At first, find action call after click "Save Design" Button.
It will be controller ofc.
Then rewrite (or change) function by adding similar code on sunction start:

$isLoggedIn = Mage::helper('customer')->isLoggedIn();
if (! $isLoggedIn) {
  • Thanks, now instead of redirecting to login page, we are displaying pop up once we click on save design..... but issue is we need to save product after login..... Commented Apr 4, 2017 at 6:18
