I want to echo Meta description which will also pull the name of the product.

So far I have:

<?php echo '<meta name="xxx" />' ?>

I want the "xxx" to be the product name but unsure of how to do this.

I have tried this:

<?php echo '<meta name="description" content="'.$_helper->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getName(), 'name').'" />' ?>

this is clearly wrong :(

To get product details in head.phtml follow below comment

// Get product name
if($currentProduct = Mage::registry('current_product')) {
  • Be sure to check whether Mage::registry('current_product) exists at all, otherwise, might generate exceptions of calling method on non-object.
