Is there any way to add a simple php code:

<div title="<?php echo $_product->getAttributeText("manufacturer"); ?>"></div>

to a block we create under content page. It can't execute PHP code as far as I'm concerned.

  • Which php code is not working and on which file? Jun 14, 2018 at 11:24
  • the one above is giving me errors of unexpected token <, but when i directly write it on phtml file it works fine

I assume that you want to call PHP code in a static block.

You can do so by calling a phtml file in the static block and write your PHP code in the phtml file.

To call phtml file in static block, you need to write code like this:

{{block class="Path\To\Block\Class" template="Namespace_Module::filename.phtml"}}

Since you are trying to get product manufacturer, I think you need to use block class name as Magento\Catalog\Block\Product.

  • @CompuScie, sorry I could understand your comment? Jun 14, 2018 at 12:46

You cannot add PHP code into static blocks

but you can add a link to your phtml file into static block

  • Create your sample.phtml file
  • write your code in sample.phtml

Then add this file into the static file as

{{block type="core/template" template="catalog/category/sample.phtml"}}

The following syntax will help you:

Basically, you need to call .phtml file to execute your php file or php code;

{{block class="path-to-block-class" template="module-name::your-filename.phtml"}}
  • ohh you can also check the accepted answer above... its also correct

Please try the below instead of your code:

<div title="<?= $_product->getAttributeText("manufacturer"); ?>"></div>
  • Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'title' of null, when i try to get the value by JS, also now it just puts php code to the browser

    That code will only work if it is added to a phtml file. Verify that the file you are adding that code snippet to actually has a phtml extension. Jun 14, 2018 at 11:46

Your above code has small mistake, which is you are including double quote inside another double quote. Replace your code with the below code:

<div title="<?php echo $_product->getAttributeText('manufacturer'); ?>"></div>
