If you have never done it before and have tight schedule and budget then i'd say you are doomed anyway and have to choose whatever has the shortest learning curve for you. Best choice out of these would be Magento but it has the longest learning curve and you'd be well comfortable with this platform after 6 months hands on working with it. I would not ...

A company can charge whatever they want to install software, regardless of the software licence. They are selling a service, not a product. I could charge $20,000 to install WordPress, for example,without violating the software licence (although I never would, because it's both immoral and exploitative). Note also that Magento Community Edition is released ...

There's a lot of confusion around terminology here. Magento, the programming system, has code Modules. These modules are often (incorrectly, although I've done it myself) called extensions. Modules allow you to add code to Magento's configuration based MVC system. Magento also has a system called Magento Connect. Magento Connect allows you to install ...

The behavior you've described sounds as though it may be an issue with Magento (in which case you may want to inquire at the Magento user forum or file a bug report). Whether or not Magento supports native MP3 sample streaming, your site's users can play the sample MP3 files in the audio player of their choice (without an embedded Flash player or reliance ...

The quickest thing I can think of is Google's mod_pagespeed for Apache. I've used it on my Magento store and didn't have any issues with the combination of the JS and CSS, though did run into some issues with the caching and what have you, but you can turn those off pretty easily. With mod_pagespeed, you want to use these filters in you pagespeed.conf: # ...

Here is a thread on the forums that advertises for a daily deal plugin. http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/204524/ Since Magento is written in PHP, I can't imagine it would be too hard for you to adjust the timing to hours instead of days.

The community edition doesn't have the secure payment bridge which helps with PCI compliance. That's the real difference between community and pro. For commercial sites that process more than a few thousand credit card transactions a year, use magento professional or magento go if it's a small business. I don't mention enterprise because you'd already know ...

This is a rather old question but as I ran into the same issue with a customer today I'd thought I share the solution to this problem for future reference. The solution is to disable the "Transfer Cart Line Items" option for the PayPal payment method you are using. By disabling this, Magento will no longer give details about the totals, tax and shipping to ...

First point, check the source of your front page if you found a meta like this: <link rel="shortcut icon" href="a/path/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> just change the favicon in the named path Else, browsers try to get the favicon to the root of your website so: either you put a file favicon.ico at this place or you put a meta like above with ...

The New Order Status can only be one of the status of Processing state because it's defined that way in app/code/core/Mage/Authorizenet/etc/system.xml: <order_status translate="label"> ... <source_model>adminhtml/system_config_source_order_status_processing</source_model> ... </order_status> If you want to change that ...

Your idea was good add free and flat rate and then you will just need a little hack in your template: go to template/checkout/onepage/shipping_method/available.phtml and brake the for each as folow </dd> <?php //EGS to avoid other methods show up if freeshipping is in place ?> <?php if($code=="freeshipping"){ break; } ?> In ...

Two important distinctions here A) Use System > Configuration > Advanced to shut off the module's output (module is still active) B) To completely shut the module down and prevent execution of all its code, layouts, setups for both frontend and backend, go to app/etc/modules/*, open the module control file of the desired module. Set the line ...

I have used Screaming Frog, today in fact, and I really love that tool. You get a lot of information in quite a short amount of time. You'll get the metadata in a csv and you can manipulate it easily in Excel. Export everything and then use filters for each column to only display text/html and not images or CSS files. I am doing that for a site migration ...

Someone on the Magento forums posted the following as their solution: You have to change both post_max_size and upload_max_filesize in the php.ini And don’t forget to restart your server afterwards.

You just need to be patient and get your site out there. Searching for site:encryptstick.com shows plenty of pages so the site is being indexed fine. A search for "encrypt stick" shows you as #1. If you want to check Google Webmaster Tools for errors, the best place to look is Diagnostics > Crawl Errors. You might also like to try Yahoo's Site Explorer. If ...

Magento may well be the most robust PHP shop solution, but it is big, resource hungry and not easy to implement or customize as others noted. Prestashop may not be as matured and it lacks a lot of the more advanced features, BUT it is impressively easy to learn both to the developer/webmaster and to the owner. I honestly think it will become the most popular ...

ImageMagick is free - I have used it to stamp 'preview' on pictures before, make dynamic fancy text out of people's names (it was wrapped around an orange in cloves, before you ask why I didn't just use @font-face) amongst other things. You install ImageMagick yourself and integrate it with your own service. A lot of platforms and CMSs provide plugins for ...

You will absolutely want to use Drupal. Here is the module you need. It is only good for version 6, so keep that in mind. Drupal also hass all of the other features you need: CMS, Blog, Forum, Social plugins. As far as being easy to work with for non technical people. You will want to create a user type that has limited access. IE, can change only the ...

you didn't specified what version control you are using. Easiest way to do cowboy development is to use git for version control and here's how to: make a git repo master branch that has all magento versions in it although not necessary (http://blog.speedupmate.com/post/4063307705/magento-git-mirror) checkout your dev branch with the version you like to ...

If I've understood your question correctly, you need to edit the price of an existing configurable product. You're going to need to change the price in two places (I think). First off, when you create a configurable product with 'associated products' each associated product is a simple product in itself. You should search for the refill product and edit ...

I assume this is because the on-behalf-of header is being set by Magento. I've never had this problem before, but it seems like it'd only make sense for Magento to do this if it were a "share with a friend" email. It should not be doing this for transactional emails. If Magento isn't setting the header, then it might be set by the SMTP server you're using, ...

Yes, this can be done. Create your web site, have all of your products listed in a gallery in different categories for your products. You can design this gallery yourself or use WordPress for a little help. Next, create a private separate product page, subdomain, or Magento hosted eCommerce solution with a required log-in / sign-up page to reach the shop. ...

I would turn the store off, integrate with paypal sandbox with debugging and place an order to see what paypals response is when the order goes through. You may want to read this thread about a similar issue http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/294965/#t415543

This is the Time to First Byte and is determined by how long it takes the application to return any information. You would need to provide more information on the system you are using for specifics but I would look first at the application setup rather than the hosting for optimisation. For example Magento can be a very "heavy" application without some form ...

There is one big problem. Google never wants to index a page of search results in its own search results. Your site search pages should be blocked from Googlebot with robots.txt or you risk getting your site penalized from the Google index.

From: https://ahrefs.com/robot/ ...you can control the frequency of AhrefsBot visiting your site by specifying the minimum acceptable delay between two [consecutive] requests from our bot as follows (in robots.txt): User-Agent: AhrefsBot Crawl-Delay: 2 where the value of Crawl-Delay parameter is time in seconds (you can use fractional seconds ...

It seems Google wasn't able to create a title from the Danish inside your title tag, so used the contents of your H1 tag, which matches the title that Google displayed instead. (Note that the contents of the H1 tag were edited out of this answer - see version number 1 of this answer for more details.) You might consider supplying a title in English when ...

It is in the files in /app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Order/Pdf/ you need to change the different fonts. But if you set the font or size, so the text becomes bigger you need to find all the places in the code where it says $this->y -=XX; (most xx=10) and change all these places to a higher number if you change the fontsize. Another way is to use my ...
