php – Get parent category for product page Opencart

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

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

How to&Answers:

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
