I created attribute
custom_attribute for category with some default value.
If I save category(for example for store 26) with some value for this attribute I can get via:
Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load(12); //example where you will get data for your category with this
But, if you try to load category collection and even use
addAttriuteToSelect('custom_attribute'), you won't get a it's
value in case you didn't save for default store manually some value.
That's becuase if you look in
127, you will see that they join table where store_id = 0. That's mean that you need to save category with your
custom_attribute for default store.
I've quick idea via observer to assign attribute value for default store.
If there any more clean solutions?
