At first let me admit, I'm not a programmer, although I have a lot of expierence in tweaking small bits of php here and there. Also I'm not very familiar with Magento's ways of coding.
I have this client who wants to add the manufacturer's brandname to the breadcrumb with a link to the brandname in it. We're using layered navigation that's where I got the link from.
The output I get is Home / Categoryname / productname of <A href="http://linktobrand.html">Brandname</A> Here in which the html doesn't get rendered because of the breadcrumbs block being echoed with the function toHtml().
Is there anyway I can bypass this?
Here's my code: (the code was put in the view.phtml of product)
//Get current category url $current_category = Mage::registry('current_category')->getUrl(); //Get brandname $brandname = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($_product->getId())->getAttributeText('manufacturer'); //Strip .html and add the stuff from the layered navigation to it $brandurl = str_replace(".html", "/l/". strtolower($brandname) .".html", $current_category); $brandnamemurl = "of <a href="" . $brandurl . "">" . $brandname . "</a>"; //breadcrumb stuff $breadcrumbs = $this->getLayout()->getBlock('breadcrumbs'); $breadcrumbs->addCrumb('manufacturer', array('label'=>$brandnamemurl, 'title'=>$brandname)); echo $this->getLayout()->getBlock('breadcrumbs')->toHtml();
