Retrieving Product Attributes

Retrieving Product Attributes


I am running Magento I want to display the manufacturer attribute for each product on my category grid list. I have modified list.phtml with the following :-


php echo $_product->getAttributeText('manufacturer');


This retrieves the product attribute 'manufaturer' correctly BUT when it is displayed on the category list page, the text has no spaces. I have checked and there are spaces for the attribute. So I get for example Aquamarina displayed instead of Aqua Marina.


I don't know why. Please can you help

Hi @philevans114,


Can you share how are you getting the attribute into your phtml? Maybe there is an error because you need to get the Attribute Option Text.

If you've found one of my answers useful, please give "Kudos" or "Accept as Solution"

Re: Retrieving Product Attributes



Can you try to use <?php echo $this->escapeHtml($_product->getAttributeText('manufacturer')) ?> instead.


Let me know if it works.
