I am trying to create an option where I can select yes or no in the backend, and when it's set to yes, it adds a block with an image in the product page. Here's what I have so far:

  1. I created a Yes/No Attribute called "samsung_5_vjet_garanci" and made sure its Visible on Catalog Pages on Storefront. Added it on a sample product, and set it to YES
  2. Created a CMS Block with just the "<div class="samsung"><img src="{{media url="wysiwyg/image.png"}}" alt="" /></div>" with identifier "samsung-garanci"
  3. Created a .phtml file and uploaded it /app/design/frontend/vendor/themename/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/view/samsung.phtml
<?php $_product = Mage::getSingleton('catalog/product')

if ($_product->getAttributeText('samsung_5_vjet_garanci') == "Yes"): ?>

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('samsung-garanci')->toHtml(); ?>

<?php endif; ?>
  1. Added a block in catalog_product_view.xml

    <referenceContainer name="product.info.main">
        <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View" name="samsung" as="samsung" after="-" template="Magento_Catalog::product/view/samsung.phtml" />

But it's not working, what am I doing wrong, it's been 3 days figuring this out, and still nothing. Thank you very much if you help me

It's mentioned that you use Magento 1.9.x ( as per the tags added), but I can see that you have magento2 style of code and magento2 directory structure in your layout XML (catalog_product_view.xml). In short there is a mixup of code. Check and Confirm your Magento version at first and then add the respective style of code

In Magento 1,

Create and register a custom theme

The layout and template paths should be

app/design/frontend/vendor/theme/layout/catalog.xml better create a local.xml for layout overrides


and in your layout XML it should be

    <reference name="product.info">
    <block type="catalog/product_view" name="samsung_brand" as="samsung.brand" template="catalog/product/view/samsung.phtml"/>

So confirm your Magento version, learn the theme creation, directory structure and layout directives to be used according to the version of Magento.

In case of Magento2, it should be


 <?xml version="1.0"?>
     * @copyright (c) 2020
     * @category StackExchange
     * @package StackExchange_Answers
     * @version 1.0.0
    <page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
            <referenceContainer name="content">
                <referenceBlock name="product.info.main">
                    <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View" name="samsung" as="samsung" after="-" template="Magento_Catalog::product/view/samsung.phtml" />


<?php /** @var $block \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\AbstractProduct */ ?>


$_product = $block->getProduct();

// just to print your attribute value for your confirmation, you can comment or remove the print statement below if you want

echo '<br/>Sku : ' . $_product->getSku() .' | samsung_5_vjet_garanci: '. $_product->getData('samsung_5_vjet_garanci') .' | samsung_5_vjet_garanci: '.$_product->getSamsung5VjetGaranci();

if ($_product->getData('samsung_5_vjet_garanci')) {
    echo $block->getLayout()->createBlock(\Magento\Cms\Block\Block::class)->setBlockId('samsung-garanci')->toHtml();

  • No it's Magento 2.3.3, my bad with the tags. can you please write the answer again with Magento 2 in mind?

First of all you don't need to get getAttributeText('.....) if you are using a yes/no attribute. It's better to use

<?php $_product = $this->getProduct(); // you don't need to load product its already present.

if ($_product->getAttribute('samsung_5_vjet_garanci')): ?>

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('samsung-garanci')->toHtml(); ?>

<?php endif; ?>
  • have I placed it correctly on catalog_product_view.xml?

  • It thought you are working on magento1 but I understand that you're are using 2. So you are trying wrong code on wrong magento version. Feb 22, 2021 at 2:50
