  • How to succeed with a Magento e-commerce store


    WordPress is the single most popular content management system (CMS) online. A W3Techs survey found that almost a quarter (24.1%) of all websites were built with the platform – far more than competitors Joomla (2.8%), Drupal (2.1%) and Magento (1.1%).

    When you take out the blogs and concentrate on e-commerce however, Magento is the clear winner. According to a study of Alexa's million top e-commerce sites, Magento Community Edition was the most popular, with 25.6% of the market share, knocking WordPress’ WooCommerce plugin into second spot. The premium Magento Enterprise Edition ranked in 6th place, powering a further 4.4% of the top million e-commerce sites.

    One of the reasons Magento performs so well in is that it is custom-built for the purpose: it has a range of functionality that can be adapted to enhance e-commerce sites for businesses of all shapes and sizes. There are still some things you should bear in mind to get the best performance out of your Magento site however:

  • GoMage FeedPro

    GoMage FeedPro is designed to generate Magento product feeds and export them to the shopping engines like Google Shopping, Amazon, eBay, etc. The feeds contain Magento product catalogs with the values for all necessary attributes which are required by the shopping engines. Each shopping system usually has a template according to which the feed should be created. The template indicates the mandatory attributes each product should have in order to be accepted by the system (e.g. name, brand, size, color, product_ID, SKU, etc). If some of those attribute values are missing in the catalog the store admin must fill them in before exporting the feed, otherwise it will be rejected by the shopping system.

    The feeds can be configured in CSV, TXT or XML format. The options of FeedPro extension allow the store admin to configure the feed file, that is, to create the list of attributes according to which the product information will be exported. The attributes should be mapped to the corresponding fields in the feed template provided by the shopping system (e.g. the field ‘brand’ usually contains the value of ‘manufacturer’ Magento attribute). There is no limit to the number of fields/attributes in the feed file, nor is there one for the number of feed files. Once an extension is installed the store admin can create as many feed files as they wish.

    A very important feature of FeedPro extension is a possibility to apply various filtering options to organize the products in the feed. For example, if the store admin only wants to export the products which belong to a specific category, all they need to do is create the necessary filtering condition in the feed settings. Any attribute can be used to include or exclude products in the feed. File creation settings in the feed determine whether or not ‘disabled’ and ‘out of stock’ products need to be exported. The option ‘Visibility’ is also taken into account unless it is disabled. If the settings state that only products with ‘catalog, search’ visibility should be exported, then the products set as ‘not visible individually’ will not be included in the feed.

    Another peculiarity of the extension is a possibility to create dynamic filters called ‘Dynamic attributes’. These filters are applied depending on specific conditions configured in the feed. The conditions are created according to ‘if – then’ pattern. For example, if the price is over $100 – then 10% discount is applied. Such filters are very convenient for setting up discounts or price rules.

    As soon as the template configuration is complete the feed can be generated and then uploaded to the shopping engine server. The upload can be done manually through the corresponding Merchant center, or automatically by FTP/SFTP. FeedPro extension settings allow the store admin to setup the time interval for automatic feed generation and upload. It is recommended to schedule the feed generation procedure for the time when the site load is the least (e.g. at night). Successful completion of the feed generation depends on the server capabilities and load level at the time of generation, as well as on the amount of products that need to be exported.

    GoMage company offers the service of feed configuration for additional cost. Their support team can configure the feeds for desired shopping engines ordered by the customer.

  • Removing a warning message about {{base url}}

    Removing a warning message about {{base url}}

    As a rule, after Magento is installed the admin panel displays a warning message about {{base url}} which must be removed, otherwise the store website will be inaccessible. This usually happens after the primary system installation.

    In order to remove the warning, go to System – Configuration – Web - General. There will be two tabs – unsecure and secure. In these fields, the value for the “base_url” should be set. Usually, the web store URL is set as a base URL, although sometimes an IP address or a development site URL is used at the stage of web store development. It is important that the URL ends with a slash ‘/’, and the URL in secure base_url value must begin with https://. Note that using secure URL is only possible if you have an SSL certificate for your site. In order to verify how you can order an SSL certificate please contact your hosting provider.

    After all changes are done click ‘Save Config’ and check the system functionality. You can find the information about other basic settings, GoMage modules installation or selection Magento themes in the articles of our blog.

  • Disabling of product compare option

    Disabling of product compare option

    In one of the previous articles of our blog we discussed how to add products to compare. Now we will review how to disable that option if it is not needed.

    First of all, open file list.phtml in folder app/design/frontend/default/themeXXX/template/catalog/product on your server. You can do that with the help of FTP client.

    Then, remove the function ‘add to compare’ from the product listing page. Using CTRL+F hotkeys locate and remove the following code

    <?php if($_compareUrl=$this-getAddToCompareUrl($_product)): ?>
      <li><span class="separator">|</span>
      <a  title="<?php echo $this->__('Add to Compare') ?> " href="<?php echo $_compareUrl ?>" 
      rel="tooltip" class="link-compare "><?php echo $this->__('Add toCompare') ?></a></li>
    <?php endif; ?>

    If you plan to disable the option temporarily you may not remove the code but comment it out with double slash for PHP: //. For HTML code use symbols <!— comment —>. Then repeat these steps to remove the option in the products grade.

    In order to disable ‘Add To Compare’ option on the product page copy the file addto.phtml which is located in app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view folder into app/design/frontend/default/themeXXX/template/catalog/product/view folder, then remove or comment out the following code:

    $_compareUrl = $this->helper('catalog/product_compare')->getAddUrl($_product);
    <?php if($_compareUrl) : ?>
    <li><span class="separator">|</span> <a href="<?php echo $_compareUrl ?>" 
    class="link-compare"><?php echo $this->__('Add to Compare') ?></a></li>-->
    <?php endif; ?>

    If you wish to remove the compare option from the sidebar you need to edit the file catalog.xml in folder app/design/frontend/default/themeXXX/layout and then remove or comment out the following code:

    <block type="catalog/product_compare_sidebar" after="cart_sidebar" name="
    .sidebar" template="catalog/product/compare/sidebar.phtml"/>

    As soon as the changes are saved upload modified files on the server. If the changes are not applied on the site, you should clean Magento and browser cache. If you have any questions please feel free to leave comments to this article or email GoMage team directly.
