The problem in showing the recently viewed product.

How can I show it in homepage using the block? Like , I show new products through this code

{{block type="catalog/product_new" products_count="2" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

Is there any way to show the recently viewed product ?

  • <?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('reports/product_viewed')->setTemplate('reports/product_viewed.phtml')->toHtml(); ?> Where I have to add this one – Swati Tyagi Oct 3 '17 at 7:34
  • If you want to show this on home page then you don't need to use above code. You can use this code in your cms page {{block type="reports/product_viewed" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml"}} – Dinesh Yadav Oct 3 '17 at 7:58
  • its not working. As I want to check the report.xml there is no report.xml – Swati Tyagi Oct 3 '17 at 8:06
  1. Create most-viewed.phtml file in : app/design/frontend/{packagename}/{themename}/template/catalog/product/most-viewed.phtml then add this:

    $totalPerPage =4;
    $storeId = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();
    $_productCollection = Mage::getResourceModel('reports/product_collection')
    <?php $_collectionSize = $_productCollection->count(); ?>
    <div class="row" style="border: 1px solid #eaeaea; padding: 23px; margin-bottom: 10px;">
    <?php if ($_collectionSize) { ?>
        <h3 class="subtitle" style="background-color: #eaeaea; padding: 7px; color: #929292; text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 15px;">Les plus vus block</h3>
        <ul class="products-grid">
            foreach ($_productCollection as $_product): ?>
            <div class="col-md-3">
                $image_url = $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'small_image')->resize(200,200);
                $alt = $this->htmlEscape($this->stripTags($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image'), null, true));
                <li class="item">
                    <a href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $this->stripTags($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image'), null, true) ?>">
                        <img src="<?php echo $image_url; ?>" alt="<?php echo trim($alt)? $alt: $this->htmlEscape($this->stripTags($_product->getName())); ?>" />
                    <div class="product-info">
                        <h3 class="product-name">
                            <a href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $this->stripTags($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image'), null, true) ?>">
                                <?php echo trim($alt)? $alt: $this->htmlEscape($this->stripTags($_product->getName())); ?>
            <?php endforeach; ?>
    <?php } ?>
  2. add the piece of code bellow in your cms block:

    {{block type="core/template" name="most.viewed.block" template="catalog/product/most-viewed.phtml"}}
