I have added a new category attribute but after creating attribute, Im not able to fetch value...

A custom attribute is visible on the backend but how could I get value. I have followed this tutorial.


  • Have you well your custom attribute in category admin ? and are you well saving the data ? – PЯINCƏ Jul 30 '18 at 8:05
  • data is getting a store in the database. and custom_attribute field is also stored in the eva_attribute table. but not able to fetch the value. – Gaurav Kakkar Jul 30 '18 at 8:08

From the moment the attribute is well saved in the database, you should get it:

  1. Try to reindex All

  2. Try this:

    $categoryId = 112; //for exemple.
    $myCustomAttribute = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($categoryId)->getData('custom_attribute_name');
  • I Have tried this print_r(Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($_category->getId())->getData()); 'custom_attribute_name' is not showing there. – Gaurav Kakkar Jul 30 '18 at 8:28

  • Did you try to reindex ? try also to clean cache then try again – PЯINCƏ Jul 30 '18 at 8:44
  • i have cleared all the cache and reindexing too.. – Gaurav Kakkar Jul 30 '18 at 8:45
  • In your config.xml try to update <class>Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Setup</class> to <class>Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Mysql4_Setup</class> – PЯINCƏ Jul 30 '18 at 9:11
Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/category')->getAttributeRawValue($_category->getId(), "custom_attribute", Mage::app()->getStore()->getId());
