I am brand new to Magento and am a Wordpress developer and am trying to get my bearings on something that seems like it should be simple to accomplish. I am trying to simply add a data-attribute to my product title on the product details page. I want to do this so I can add some logic in my JS based on it. The issue is despite the research I have done I cannot get it to work.

I have located the title.phtml file and tried adding in

data-category="<?php echo $block->getCurrentCategory->getId() ?>"

but when I reload the page it is just white.

What is the easiest way to go about this? In wordpress I can literally just do the_title() and it gets the title of the post. Is there something similar by chance?

Product title (product name) in product detail page define in


<referenceBlock name="page.main.title">
                <argument name="css_class" xsi:type="string">product</argument>
                <argument name="add_base_attribute" xsi:type="string">itemprop="name"</argument>

i think the easiest way to go about this is create plugin.


<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    <type name="Magento\Catalog\Model\Product">
        <plugin name="training_catalog_product" type="Company\Module\Plugin\Catalog\Model\Product"/>


class Product
    public function afterGetName(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $subject, $result)
        $title = $subject->getAttributeText('other_name');
        return $title;
  • I appreciate your reply but I think you may have misread. I am looking to get the product category and add it into the title.
