Left menu on product page
« on: April 01, 2014, 06:52:27 PM »
I'd really like to display the other products in the category of the product currently on display. So for a music CD - on the product page, I'd like the left hand column to display all other products in the same category. Please advice! I'm not sure how to create a block that will do that automatically. My ultimate goal is to make navigating easy for the consumer.

This will require some PHP programming.

You need to create block template, block controller and block model. If you find similar method in existing models you can reuse that method by loading model in your controller.

Finale you need to include your block in the code or layout.
If you will get there we can help you with these steps

Unfortunately, this is custom coding, I do not have a ready solution for you.
