Many times we need to show some sort of information in modal overlay when customer comes to the site.
We can use it for many kind of purposes like newsletter subscription form, coupon codes or just some
In this article I’ll show you how to create the most basic functionality around this.
Magento 2 supports REST (Representational State Transfer) and SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), much like the old version of Magento we were used to. Official documentation is mostly based on raw curl request without examples in some specific language. PHP is what we do and there will be many people using it as well, so we tried to give you real PHP examples of how to connect and use Magento 2 API.
When it comes to Magento 2 and cron jobs, there are some improvements comparing to Magento 1.
It is still abstract in the way that you don’t really run jobs directly, instead, you use cron syntax to setup periodical method execution via Magento scheduler that works on top of system’s cron utility.
Here are some useful hints to help you get started with setting up your own.
One of the new features that you get out of the box with Magento 2 is New Relic reporting.
New Relic has been around for about the same amount of time as Magento. I always liked projects that were using New Relic for performance analysis because it was much easier to identify preformance bottlenecks – especially on production systems where you have little bit less debugging possibilities. That’s why I’m really excited to have it in the new Magento version.
Few years ago, we had an article describing how to add external files into Magento.
It was quite popular, so we decided to come back to it today.
Some time has passed since I wrote original version of this article, Magento was at 1.5. these days…
Now, almost 2 years later I have decided to revamp the article since lot’s of feedback is gathered…
Here is little extension called Inchoo_USDisableRegions.
If you have any reason to disable some specific regions from US country, but you don’t want to delete them, this extension will allow you to chose which ones are possible to use for your customer’s addresses.
This article shows proof of concept for git deployment.
It is completely irrelevant where do you host your code as long as you actually do have git repository 🙂
It is not meant to be used in production environments unless you are aware what it does exactly.
Let’s assume that you have a task to implement multiple currency feature in some Magento based project.
What will happen if your client choses PayPal standard as payment method?!
Well, you might be a little dissapointed to see that there is no way to pay in chosen currency. 🙁
Magento tells you that order was placed using chosen currency, but is it true?
To be honest, I have never been working with gift messages in Magento, so I got very surprised once I saw that there is no output for it in any
document that customer recieves. This time I got request from client to write gift message on PDF packingslip.
Actually this is somewhat easy and goes like this…

I took some time to install and do the quick check on Magento 184.108.40.206-alpha1. There was one thing that is impossible to miss: Improved order statuses.
I remember the days when people requested that feature all over ther forum. Oh yes… what feature? Custom order statuses 🙂
So, we have it out of the box finally! Or do we? Let’s see…
It is really cool when you can see large list of languages in the footer of Magento administration. You might think that all those languages you can see are available by default, but that is not the case. What to do when you need only two? English and Spanish for example? What seamed to be a simple task, turned up to be quite challenging.
I’m using Aptana studio for few months already.
It is Eclipse/PDT based so I’m sure all this can be achieved in any Eclipse based platform.
As we all probably know, there are some events in Magento that are dispatched by default.
We can easily hook on those events, but this is not a subject of this article.
What we are going to try now is to add custom event before and after some action in some of Magento’s controllers.
