How can I echo the SKU list of the items in the search results page, but in the header of Magento? Currently using M1. I'm using the code below to echo the list of SKUs of a specific category page to the header, but I don't know how to get the list of SKUs in the search results page.

if (Mage::registry('current_category')) 

$category_id = Mage::getModel('catalog/layer')->getCurrentCategory()->getId();
$category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($category_id);
$products = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')
    ->setOrder('price', 'ASC')

$skuArray = array();
foreach ($products as $item) {
                        $skuArray[] = "\"" . $item->getSku() . "\"";

echo Mage::registry('current_category')->getID();

echo implode( ', ', $skuArray);

I tried the solution in this link, but it doesn't seem to work: How to get Search result Product collection outside result.phtml

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. :D

Place this code within header.phtml or head.phtml

if($listBlock = $this->getLayout()->getBlock('search_result_list')) {
  $productCollection = $listBlock->getLoadedProductCollection();

  $skuArray = array();
  foreach ($productCollection as $item) {
     $skuArray[] = "\"" . $item->getSku() . "\"";

  echo 'ListOfItemsinMagentoSearchResults = [' . implode( ', ', $skuArray) .']';
  • You... are... a GENIUS! It works as I wanted. Thank you so much! :D

  • You actually sorted it out. Hahaha! I actually tried the search_result_list block because I found it somewhere and it gets the number of results when using productCollection->getSize, so I tried getSku, but I forgot to include the productCollection in the foreach loop. That's why it didn't work Hahaha! Thanks again! :D

  • Yeah. The one I linked is too long. hahaha! I think this is the one that we saw: magento.stackexchange.com/questions/89223/… but you figured out how to make it work for SKUs. Haha! :D I wish I could give you more upvotes. :D Thanks again Harri! :)
