Drop down attributes on category views (list)

I'm going crazy here trying to find a way to do this. I essentially have several attributes that have over 10 options, what I'd like to do is turn these attributes into drop down options.


Example attribute "Manufacturer" has 20 possible options, instead of displaying all the manufacturers, just show "Manufacturer" with a drop down box that will then reveal the 20 options.

 

Thanks!

Re: Drop down attributes on category views (list)

Hello,

 

You try these code lines in product listing page:

 

<?php
//$selectedvalue = $_product->getAttributeText('color');
$atributeCode = 'color';
$html = '<select>';
$attribute = Mage::getModel('eav/config')->getAttribute('catalog_product',$atributeCode);
$options = $attribute->getSource()->getAllOptions();
foreach($options as $key => $value){


$html .= '<option value="' . $value['value']. '">' .$value['label']. '</option>';
//print_r($value);
}
$html .="</select>";
?>
<?php echo "$html"; ?>

 

A Brief Description:

-The most interesting thing is:

$attribute = Mage::getModel('eav/config')->getAttribute('catalog_product',$atributeCode);
$options = $attribute->getSource()->getAllOptions();

=> Get all options of our attribute.

Re: Drop down attributes on category views (list)

Okay so that didnt work in my list.phtml but worked in

 

/app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/layer

 

filter.phtml

 

But it affected all attributes and messed it up:

 

 

 

Thoughts?

Re: Drop down attributes on category views (list)

Hello,

 

You can post some code lines in list.phtml file? If you test my code lines with rwd theme Magento. It will work ok! I test on rwd theme Magento 1.9.2.2.

Re: Drop down attributes on category views (list)

Ah okay, I'm using the Infortis Ultimo theme, but the layered navigation is using the base files so it should work.


here it the filter.phtml

 

<ol>
<?php foreach ($this->getItems() as $_item): ?>
    <li>
        <?php if ($_item->getCount() > 0): ?>
        <a href="<?php echo $this->urlEscape($_item->getUrl()) ?>"><?php echo $_item->getLabel() ?></a>
        <?php else: echo $_item->getLabel() ?>
        <?php endif; ?>
        <?php if ($this->shouldDisplayProductCount()): ?>
        (<?php echo $_item->getCount() ?>)
        <?php endif; ?>
    </li>
	
	<?php
//$selectedvalue = $_product->getAttributeText('color');
$atributeCode = 'color';
$html = '<select>';
$attribute = Mage::getModel('eav/config')->getAttribute('catalog_product',$atributeCode);
$options = $attribute->getSource()->getAllOptions();
foreach($options as $key => $value){


$html .= '<option value="' . $value['value']. '">' .$value['label']. '</option>';
//print_r($value);
}
$html .="</select>";
?>
<?php echo "$html"; ?>
<?php endforeach ?>
</ol>

Thank you!

Re: Drop down attributes on category views (list)

Hello,

 

Actually, you want to create dropdown attribute in filter or category view template? If you want to show in category view, please find list.html template and post some code lines here. You can enable Template Path hints: http://help.sweettoothrewards.com/article/434-how-do-i-turn-on-template-path-hints. That helps you find your category view template easier.

Re: Drop down attributes on category views (list)

Hello,

 

You can add my code lines inside the foreach product collection:

 

......

<?php foreach ($_productCollection as $_product): ?>
            <li class="item">


             ......
           //You add my code lines here
            ......
          

          </li>
<?php endforeach; ?>
......

Re: Drop down attributes on category views (list)

I tried in that location and nothing changes - I put it lower and then the drop downs show up with the products.
