You can add a dollar sign to the end of the string which means it will only match exactly that entry: # Files User-agent: * Disallow: /mage$ This will only block the mage file if it come straight after the root domain: www.example.com/mage If there are any other preceding directories, you must add these o the entry. So to block the file located ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: # ...

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 ...

You can also see what extensions are installed by looking in /app/etc/modules/. If it doesn't have a .xml file in there, then Magento doesn't know it exists.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

You could use a proxy site so that it appears as if you're coming from a different IP. You could either set your own up, if you have access to a different external IP from your ISP, or use one of the many proxies available on the internet.

I hadn't noticed they'd released a newer version of the extension I linked, for anyone in the same dilemna.

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 ...

Yes you can, I just wrote a blog post on doing just this http://markshust.com/2012/10/29/deploying-magento-heroku-amazon-rds

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 ...

The easiest way is to add the favicon meta tag to your theme's header and point it to the favicon in your root. A more complex way (I think) is replacing the favicon in /skin/frontend/theme/interface/favicon.ico, but I never had any success with that method.

From personal experience I can recommend you Interspire Shopping Cart it is not free but in my opinion quite powerful and easy to operate. They provide hosted version and server licensing.

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 ...

I have found Magento, difficult to learn, but worth the effort. A great resource in understanding how magneto code works: Designers Guide Awesome video tutorial series: Building a Magento Theme Start to Finish

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.

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 ...
