Hi

New to Laravel and this framework, I just wanted to check to see if this is an accepted/recommended method of getting data about "items". For example I wanted to retrieve the short description about a category so I did the following.

Code: Select all

//var_dump($catItem->getRefItems( 'text' ))

$text_for_category =  $catItem->getRefItems( 'text' );

foreach( $text_for_category as $text ) {
   if($text->getTypeName() == "Short description"){
      echo $text->getContent();
   }
}


As stated, not sure if this is the best approach (perhaps by doing it this way I am missing out on features) but it does seem to output my expected data.

It's much easier. You only have to use this:
Code: Select all$catItem->getRefItems( 'text', 'short', 'default' )

"short" is the text type for the catalog domain you have to create and use for category short descriptions. "default" is the list type in the mshop_catalog_list table
