  • I just have a small code issue - I use the Ultimo Magento theme which has tabs on the product page. I have set up the tabs and they get their info from custom static blocks. Now one of these I want to display a custom block based on an attribute, for example I have 2 types of shoes, and those shoes have different features. In the custom tab block I added

{{block type="core/template" template="page/productfeatures.phtml"}} which has the following code in it:


checkAttributeSet($_product, 'soft_sole_shoe_size')): echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('features_soft')->toHtml();
elseif($this->checkAttributeSet($_product, 'toddler_rubber_sole_shoe_size')): echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('features_toddler')->toHtml();
endif;
?>

I found some code online which I added to app/code/local/THEME/Block/Product/view.phtml - displayed at bottom.

If I remove the php tags in top code, the tab writes out that code as is on the page, not the block text. If I leave code as is the text does not display. If I just write "hello world" in the productfeatures.phtml that displays on front.

Hoping for advice?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


public function checkAttributeSet($product = null, $attributeSetName = null) {
 if(is_null($product) || is_null($attributeSetName)) return false;
 $attributeSetModel = Mage::getModel("eav/entity_attribute_set");
 $attributeSetModel->load($product->getAttributeSetId());
 if($attributeSetModel->getAttributeSetName() == $attributeSetName) {
 return true;
 }
 else {
 return false;
 }
 }

So the whole page code looks like

hi you have call wrong block as write code in Mage_Catalog_Product_View

You can call block type core/template that means you call class Mage_Core_Block_Template. and this class is not included function checkAttributeSet();

You need block type catalog/product_view

and this block type work when you in Product page

So,Please change:

{{block type="catalog/product_view" template="page/productfeatures.phtml"}}

Above guess that the above code is not need because just add below code at view.phtml

if($this->checkAttributeSet($this->getProduct(), 'soft_sole_shoe_size')):
    echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('features_soft')->toHtml();
elseif($this->checkAttributeSet($this->getProduct()$_product, 'toddler_rubber_sole_shoe_size')): 
    echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('features_toddler')->toHtml();
endif;

  • Hi - thanks so much for the answer. I changed {{block type="core/template" template="page/productfeatures.phtml"}} to {{block type="catalog/product_view" template="page/productfeatures.phtml"}} and then replaced the second bit of code in the productfeatures.phtml file, but now the page breaks. Half the items on page are missing? – Bogratt Jan 16 '15 at 18:27
  • Hi - my log file shows this error - any ideas? My Attribute Set name in admin is Shoes - Soft Sole so changed from soft_sole_shoe_size which is the attribute name. Was not sure which to use. exception 'Varien_Exception' with message 'Invalid method Mage_Core_Block_Template::checkAttributeSet(Array ( [0] => [1] => Shoes - Soft Sole ) )' in /usr/www/users/shooszxjje/shoodev/lib/Varien/Object.php:653 Stack trace: – Bogratt Jan 23 '15 at 19:57
