10 useful Magento extensions

Featured Image

Whether your web-shop is already generating revenue or it’s at it’s very beginning, it’s always good to enhance it where it’s needed especially if it’s for free.


These 10 extensions for magento are here for their value and usefulness. Also, almost all of them exist for quite some time so they have been tested and more importantly supported by their authors with the exception of the Easy Lightbox but it works with Magento 1.4.

One of them is our own product by Domagoj Potkoc.

  1. Looks like it is already old article but still interesting topic. From your list I still use ‘Delete Orders’ extension. I have also experience by working with Enhanced Product Grid extension which actually is limited in functionality, then I tried several other solutions and finally I prefer now to use Advanced Products Manager which work great as it include grid customization, Editor (editing products on one page), lot of useful mass actions.

  2. My prefered extenions. All in 1.7.0.2 with no trouble. All are free

  3. Dear magento experts…, Im a new user of Magento (1.3) as a store owner. Im developing the store, I installed 2 extensions, but, but, I made a mistake: I installed the url canonical extension….. that is for magento 1.4… I uninstalled it, but now I cant access to the website ¡¡

    What can I do please???

    Thanks ¡¡¡

  4. @Brady Yes, it seems that the page is unavailable at the moment. Hope it will be back online soon :).

  5. For some reason the Delete Orders extension is reported by Magento as Not Found. I’d like to find out more information about that extension though. It looks very useful!

  6. I’ve been wondering about “5. Canonical URL” since Magento 1.4’s admin has settings for Canonical URLs. Is the plugin now redundant?
