How would I go about getting the Admin value for an attribute, regardless of the visitor's chosen store view?

I've tried:
$_product = $this->getProduct(); $_condition = $_product->getAttributeText('condition'); $_conditionDefault = $_product->setStoreID(0)->getAttributeText('condition');

However, setStoreId() does not work in this context.

Regardless of the language or store view that the visitor is currently viewing, I would like to be able to output the value for the Admin Store View and the value for the User's Current Store View.

The Condition attribute is a DropDown.


It typo mistake it should be setStoreId instead of setStoreID and use -getResource()

$_condition = $_product->getAttributeText('condition');
$prod= $_product->setStoreId(0);
$_coditionDefault =$_product->getResource()->getAttribute('condition')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);
  • Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it and I got an error: Fatal error: Call to undefined method Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Product::getAttributeText() in /app/design/frontend/sm_market/default/template/catalog/product/view/type/default.phtml on line 42 – pallazzio Mar 28 '15 at 20:08
  • Just remove get resource() – Amit Bera Mar 28 '15 at 20:14
  • I tried that too with no luck. Both $_condition and $_conditionDefault are outputting the same value, which is the value of the current store view. I still can't get it to output the value for Admin Store View. Any other ways it might work? – pallazzio Mar 29 '15 at 0:21

Thank you very much Amit Bera. Based on the very helpful suggestions, here is the working code!

$_condition = $_product->getAttributeText('condition');
$_coditionDefault = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('condition')->setStoreId(0)->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);
  • Excellent! Happy to confirm this works on Magento 2.1.7 – Dan Norris Jul 2 '17 at 20:28
  • For further readers, this solutions works for Magento version 2.3.5. Note that the above solution (the marked and valie) seems to be oriented to Magento 1. – Manuel García Solipa May 21 '20 at 15:27
