  • Related Products on Category Page

    Just to make sure its just something I overlooked...you should be able to show the related products of a product on the Category Display page correct?

    Here's the template outline:
    Category Page
    Category List
    Product List
    Attributes
    Related Products

    (and yes, the items are all checked in the ctgy template, products are assigned and everything else works by the related products )

    We do it with ToolKit (#45). Not sure about native. Seems you wouldn't need the ToolKit function if it was native, though.

      The same module, cmp-cssui-prodlist, creates the product list for related products, the product list, the search results, and the category products list. I think it expects to be on a product page so it won't work.

      Toolbelt provides this command.

      <mvt:item name="ry_toolbelt" param="Products_Related|g.length|g.Product_Code|g. Maxitems|g.SortBy" />

        If you have the Emporium Plus Tool Kit the token is similar
        <mvt:item name="toolkit" param="related|pcount|l.all_settings:product:code" />
        However, you would not use g.Product_Code for the product variable since that variable does not exist on the category page. Instead, use l.all_settings:product:code.

            I know this posting is quite old, but did you ever figure this out with native code? I couldn't exactly follow your comment about g.product_code within the Product list. I am using PR8 Update 12 and customizing a template for a client. Would like to rule out being able to do this with native code before buying a module.
