Last TWO Weeks in Magento Quickies


Frustrated by Magento? Then you’ll love Commerce Bug, the must have debugging extension for anyone using Magento. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, Commerce Bug will save you and your team hours everyday. Grab a copy and start working with Magento instead of against it.

Updated for Magento 2! No Frills Magento Layout is the only Magento front end book you'll ever need. Get your copy today!

Missed you last week, which just means more to recap this week!

  1. I went over the correct way to pull an address collection out of the Customer object.

  2. Keeping with the Customer object theme, I go over the counterintuitive storage of a customer’s confirmation state.

  3. I did a bit of shilling for Commerce Bug while reminding users about the access control features of same.

  4. As part of our ongoing Inigo Montoya “You keep using that feature, I do not think it works the way you think it works” series, I remind you that multi-address checkout doesn’t create an order with multiple shipping addresses, rather it creates multiple orders.

  5. As part of our ongoing “Don’t do that” series, I explain why you might not want to add options to existing configuration groups in Magento.

  6. I punt off my responsibility as Magento fairy godmother to others, with a plethora of links, including Removing Cache Invalidation Notices on Product Save, Magento Email Template If Statements, MageTool, and What IS Magento Mobile
