Get product name using its sku - in efficient way - using collection

Posted on February 6, 2012 by admin There have been 0 comments

If for some reason you have list of products skus, and for each you need to fetch out it's name,
you will better not use the old way of
$pname = Mage::getSingleton("catalog/product")->load(Mage::getSingleton("catalog/product")->getIdBySku($productSku))->getName();

because it will slow up dramatically your site.
Better use the following piece of code:


$productSku = 'sku1';

$pname = Mage::getSingleton("catalog/product")
	    		->addFieldToFilter('sku', $newpsku)

Magento is a well-engineered eCommerce platform designed to help engineers develop customized eCommerce online stores. Due to lack of proper coding documentation, was created with the sole purpose of instructing Magento developers to-be with the "how-to-do" know-how.
