Default Manufacturer Name in products_list.tpl

Hello, I'm trying to display the manufacturer name in products_list.tpl
I am able to grab the manufacturer id using:
PHP Code:
{$product.manufacturerid
But the manufacturers name isn't a part of that array.


Using this:
PHP Code:
{$manufacturer[$product.manufacturerid].manufacturer
I'm able to grab a manufacturer name, its just not the correct name because manufacturerid is static and the manufacturer array is index based on your admin sort settings.


**Note, this is for a 'Category' page or 'Search Result' page. I have access to the manufacturer name when I click on one of the 'Manufacturer' links in the side panel using:
PHP Code:
{$manufacturer.manufacturer

Default Re: Manufacturer Name in products_list.tpl

use

product.php add

$thisManufactorer = $product_info["manufacturerid"];
$manufacturer = func_query("SELECT * FROM $sql_tbl[manufacturers] WHERE manufacturerid = $thisManufactorer");
$smarty->assign("manufacturer", $manufacturer[0]["manufacturer"]);

in template use
{$product.manufacturer}

hmmm, tried that with no luck.
I realized that I have a table prefix of xcart_ on all of my tables, so I made the change in the 2nd line of your code, but still haven't had any luck.

PHP Code:
$thisManufactorer $product_info["manufacturerid"];
$manufacturer func_query("SELECT * FROM $sql_tbl[xcart_manufacturer] WHERE manufacturerid = $thisManufactorer");
$smarty->assign("manufacturer"$manufacturer[0]["manufacturer"]); 

Also, I wasn't getting any sort of feedback that this was even working until I put this code in 'products.php' not 'product.php'. When I put it in products.php I was getting this error;
Code:
INVALID SQL: 1064 : You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE manufacturerid = ''' at line 1 SQL QUERY FAILURE:SELECT * FROM WHERE manufacturerid = ''

I tried wrapping $thisManufactorer in quotes but that didn't help either.

okay use the following

BEFORE in Product.php

PHP Code:
# Assign the current location line
$smarty->assign("location"$location); 

ADD

PHP Code:
$thisManufactorer $product_info["manufacturerid"];  
$manufacturer func_query("SELECT xcart_manufacturers.*, xcart_images_M.image_path, xcart_images_M.filename FROM xcart_manufacturers, xcart_images_M WHERE xcart_manufacturers.manufacturerid = xcart_images_M.id AND manufacturerid = $thisManufactorer");  
$smarty->assign("manufacturer"$manufacturer[0]);  
$smarty->assign("m_image_path"$manufacturer[0]["image_path"]); 


and the following in you template

PHP Code:
{$manufacturer.manufacturer


to show logo and link to manu in product page add the following to the template (extra option)

PHP Code:
<a href="manufacturers.php?manufacturerid={$product.manufacturerid}"> <img src="image.php?id={$product.manufacturerid}&type=M " alt="{$manufacturer}/></a

Still not working, I tried changing everything up that I could and still nothing.

{$manufacuter.manufacturer} was working on the manufacturer page, but it was always working on that, so I don't think it was any different.
I tried assigning to a different variable name like {$manufacuter.man1} and wasn't getting any data returned.
