I need to show the layer navigation filter values in above the search page heading.

enter image description here

I have tried below code in the app\design\frontend\rwd\default\template\catalogsearch\result.phtml file.

$layout         = Mage::getSingleton('core/layout');
$block_header   = $layout->createBlock('catalog/layer_state')->setTemplate('catalog/layer/state_1.phtml');
$block_links    = $layout->createBlock('core/text_list','catalog.leftnav.state.renderers');
echo $block_header->toHtml();

But I am getting empty value.

Please assist me.

  • are you using third party extension or creating new one? – Qaisar Satti Jan 6 '16 at 5:40
  • I did not used any third party extension, I have created the custom attributes in backend. – VijayS91 Jan 6 '16 at 5:48
  • i think you can get value by Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('your params'); – Qaisar Satti Jan 6 '16 at 5:50
  • Yes its possible, But did not get correct format as per filter showing in left side navigation. – VijayS91 Jan 6 '16 at 6:08

you can get active filter with below code. tested code..

for category page

$_filters = Mage::getSingleton('catalog/layer')->getState()->getFilters();

foreach ($_filters as $_filter):?>
<?php echo $this->stripTags($_filter->getLabel()) ?><a href=”<?php echo $_filter->getRemoveUrl() ?>” title=”<?php echo $this->__('Remove This Item') ?>”><?php echo $this->__('Remove This Item') ?></a>
<?php endforeach; ?>

for search page

 $_filters = Mage::getSingleton('catalogsearch/layer')->getState()->getFilters();

foreach ($_filters as $_filter):?>
<?php echo $this->stripTags($_filter->getLabel()) ?><a href=”<?php echo $_filter->getRemoveUrl() ?>” title=”<?php echo $this->__('Remove This Item') ?>”><?php echo $this->__('Remove This Item') ?></a>
<?php endforeach; ?>

or you want to show only the current filter state use this code

for category page

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('catalog/layer_state')->setTemplate('catalog/layer/state.phtml')->toHtml(); ?>

for search result

<?php echo Mage::app()->getLayout()->createBlock('catalogsearch/layer')->setTemplate('catal‌​og/layer/state.phtml')->toHtml(); ?>
