Liquid Reference for Product and Attribute Layouts

While building Product and Attribute Layouts, a large range of dynamic data is available- here is a full reference guide.

"This" Object Fields

The "this" object can be accessed on Product detail/item.liquid, list/item.liquid and attribute layout files. It contains the properties of the current Product and contains further relevant objects e.g. Price.

Accessing Custom Field Sets

Custom Field Set data linked to Products is available in Product detail/item.liquid, list/item.liquid and attribute layout files.

Any Custom Field Sets that have been associated with the product will be stored under: {{this.cfs_data}}

You can output the above liquid in the item.liquid file to see all of Custom Field Sets associated with the Product. Each of these will have the key "cfs_1", "cfs_2" etc. For example, a developer has created just one Custom Field Set to store information about the Guarantee on the Product. The field can be accessed via: {{this.cfs_data.cfs_1.Guarantee}} See more information about Custom Field Sets here.

The Price Object

The Price object contains all the information you need to display the Product's price in the format you want. It is available in Product detail/item.liquid, list/item.liquid and attribute layout files.

The Attributes Object

These are available once Attributes have been added against the Product in Admin and you are inside a detail/item.liquid file or an Attribute layout file.

You can access the Attributes Object via the following liquid output: {{ this.product_attribute_options }}

Inside the Attribute Layout

Output Options for this Layout

Inside the Attribute Layout, you can access just the Options for that specific Attribute: {{ product_attribute_options }}

Output this Attribute's Name

You can also access the name of the Attribute this Layout is currently displaying: {{this_attribute.properties.name}}

Looping Over Attribute Options and Accessing Option Fields

As explained in the Attributes Layout Doc, we recommend you loop over the object and access the fields via the "option" liquid variable.

HTML

Assuming the above example liquid forloop has been implemented, you can access the fields in the table below. Remember the "option" liquid variable can be renamed, so if you have done this, replace "option" with the name you have given the variable. The Object contains Attribute Options and each of these contains information on the Attribute it is linked with.
