Manufacturer description on product page
Is easy to show the manufacturer description on product detail’s page overriding the controller ProductControllerCore. Prestashop has this functionality integrated. Updating your store will not miss these changes.
Create the file ProductController.php on folder override\controllers\front with this code:
class ProductController extends ProductControllerCore
public function initContent()
$manufacturer_description = "";
if($this->product->id_manufacturer > 0)
$manufacturer = new Manufacturer($this->product->id_manufacturer, $this->context->language->id);
$manufacturer_description_short = $manufacturer->short_description;
Display the manufacturer description on product.tpl using:
Clean the cache and remove manually the file class_index.php on the cache folder.
The manufacturer’s short description will be shown.
