I am creating a module that slots in a new field in the category editor.

$installer->addAttribute('catalog_category', 'mapped_objects', array(
    'group'             => 'General Information',
    'type'              => 'text',
    'backend'           => '',
    'input_renderer'    => '',
    'label'             => 'Mapped Data',
    'class'             => '',
    'global'            => Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Attribute::SCOPE_WEBSITE,
    'visible'           => true,
    'required'          => false,
    'user_defined'      => false,
    'searchable'        => false,
    'filterable'        => false,
    'comparable'        => false,
    'visible_on_front'  => false,
    'unique'            => false,
    'is_configurable'   => false,
    'order'             => 99999

The issue is that it would seem that some magento versions use 'General' and some 'General Information' for the Group name.

Can anyone pinpoint when this changed? (which versions are 'general' and which are 'general information')


  • Would still like to know when it changed, but I have adjusted my code to not care. The correct group name can be found using this code: ` $entityTypeId = $installer->getEntityTypeId('catalog_category'); $attributeSetId = $installer->getDefaultAttributeSetId($entityTypeId); $attributeGroupId = $installer->getDefaultAttributeGroupId($entityTypeId, $attributeSetId); $group = $installer->getAttributeGroup($entityTypeId, $attributeSetId, $attributeGroupId, 'attribute_group_name');` – ProxiBlue Sep 6 '13 at 17:24

That will be the Mage_Catalog module's version. You can determine the magento version from it yourself.
