Magento CE

I'm interested in echoing out the product attribute set name on the catalog/category pages. This sounds like a strange thing to do but we use Magento's attribute set in a unique way for classifying products.

I was attempting to pull it from the Mage::getModel('catalog/category') feature in my page template but was unsuccessful.

I also tried to pull the name with the following code:

$attributeSetModel = Mage::getModel("eav/entity_attribute_set");
$attributeSetName  = $attributeSetModel->getAttributeSetName();
echo "<p>" . $attributeSetName "</p>";

Is there a way to get the name to display with their products on the frontend catalog pages? Thanks in advance.

add the following code in your catalog/product/list.phtml

$attributeSetModel = Mage::getModel("eav/entity_attribute_set");
$attributeSetModel->load($_product->getAttributeSetId()); // $product is your product object
echo $attributeSetName = $attributeSetModel->getAttributeSetName();

Note check your listing of products is in grid mode or list mode and add accordingly above code

  • That's it! Worked perfectly. Last question: Do you know if it's possible to group products from the same attribute sets together (sort by ascending > attribute set name)?
