PHP Question

Get parent category for product page Opencart

is there a way to get the parent category of a product, in the product page for Opencart? Thanks

Answer

Yes you can. I've tested my code in OpenCart 1.5.1.x

First, you must modify the file /catalog/controller/product/product.php to add after the line 94: $product_info = $this->model_catalog_product->getProduct($product_id);

ADD this:

$categories = $this->model_catalog_product->getCategories($product_info['product_id']); if ($categories){ $categories_info = $this->model_catalog_category->getCategory($categories[0]['category_id']); $this->data['category_id'] = $categories_info['category_id']; }

Then, you can use the variable <?php echo $category_id ?> in your template file (product.tpl).

Hope this help you
