Is there a way to get Product List Toolbar into breadcrumbs.phtml? All I want to do is display toolbar options inside the breadcrumbs wrapper.

in local.xml

    <reference name="root">
        <block type="catalog/product_list_toolbar" name="product_list_toolbar" template="catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml"/>

in app/design/frontend/{package}/{theme}/template/page/1column.phtml if you are using a 1column template, then add this below a breadcrumbs child:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('breadcrumbs') ?>
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('product_list_toolbar') ?>

Nb: you can add a new crumb <action method="addCrumb"> but not directly a block.

  • I did that. But it gives me a Fatal Error Fatal error: Call to a member function getSize() on null

  • I'm sorry, but I'm still getting the same error. I did try with catalog_category_view handle and default handle.

If you want to apply this on product listing page change catalog_category_layered to catalog_category_view
