How can I get the product category's URL Key?

I can get the category name by $category->getName() but it does not work if I use this $category->getURLKey(),

$categories = $_product->getCategoryCollection()

foreach($categories as $category) {
    $productCategoryName = $category->getName();

Return null

Any ideas?


Try this:

$categories = $_product->getCategoryCollection()

Then in your loop try using getUrl() method.

    Ah sorry, I read it wrong. Thought you needed a complete URL, not just URL key. – user487772 Jul 2 '14 at 22:03
  • No worries. You have given me a very good hint for doing that! :-) – laukok Jul 2 '14 at 22:14
