Display Related products on product details page in Magento

In Magento we have requirement to display related product on product details page. It’s very easy to show related product by using few easy steps. First we will have to add products to a particular product as related product.

Screen shows product added as related product



Follow the below steps to display related products.
1. Open catalog.xml, found in

app/design/frontend/default/YOURTEMPLATE/layout/
2. In catalog.xml find the catalog_product_view section, around line 220. In the section, remove or comment out:

<block type=“catalog/product_list_related” name=“catalog.product.related” before=“-“ template=“catalog/product/list/related.phtml”/>


 

and replace with:
<reference name=“content”>
<block type=“catalog/product_view” name=“product.info” template=“catalog/product/view.phtml”>
<block type=“catalog/product_list_related” name=“catalog.product.related” as=“related” template=“catalog/product/list/related.phtml”/>
</block>
</reference>


3. Now in your catalog/product/view.phtml you can print out the related products using

<?php
echo $this->getChildHtml(‘related’);
?>

To edit the look of that list, edit catalog/product/list/related.phtml
OR You can also try this code to display related products

<?php
echo $this->getChildHtml(‘catalog.product.related’)
?>

If that above code doesn’t work, you might also try:
<?php
echo $this->getLayout()->getBlock(‘catalog.product.related’)->toHtml()
?>



Hope it will work for you!
