I’m trying to figure out how to do exactly the same thing. I’ve added attributes to my product page and category page, but can’t work out how to add them to a CMS page.
After looking at many forum posts, it seems like I should be able modify the following code on New.php:
->addAttributeToSelect(array('name', 'price', 'small_image'), 'inner')
->addAttributeToSelect(array('name', 'price', 'small_image', 'manufacturer'), 'inner')
And then add something like this to new.phtml or whatever template you’re using:
<?php echo $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('manufacturer')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product) ?>
But I can’t seem to get it to work. Just says “No”. So I guess that manufacturer attribute is still not available to new.phtml. Not sure what else to do to make it available.
