Creating a Configurable Product in magento

Posted on October 19th, 2012 | Posted by admin

Advanced products in Magento are a way to consolidate product variants onto a single product info page in the front-end. The variants themselves have their own SKUs and stock management. This is very powerful – it allows you to let customers search for the individual variants, but browse only to the consolidated product pages. (If that’s the implementation you want – you could also let customers browse the individual SKUs.)

Configurable Products let your customers select the variant they desire by choosing options. For example, you sell t-shirts in two colors and three sizes. You’d create the six variants as invidivual products (with their own skus) and then add these six to a configurable product from where customers can choose size and color, then add to cart. If desired you could also have customers search for “red medium t-shirt” and land on the specific page for this variant.

Magento Performance Boost: Cleanup Old Session Files

If left unchecked, Magento session files can grow out of control and have a negative impact on your sites performance (aswell as taking up storage space). This article explains how to make sure old session files are removed automatically.

Magento stores it’s session files in var/session and I’ve seen too many Magento installations where the size of this directory has grown into the gigabytes. A quick browse of this directory should tell you whether you have a problem or not.

PHP has it’s own ‘garbage collection’ process for deleting old session files, but it’s disabled in Debian “due to the strict permissions on /var/lib/php5″

Change attributes magento
I use custom attributes for my products and I am working on my script, which get attributes and after change them value. I have done selecting code but I dont know how can I do code, which change value.

getCollection()
->addAttributeToFilter(‘manufacturer’, ’3′)
->addAttributeToSelect(‘*’);

foreach ($collection as $product) {

echo $product->getName();
echo $product->getResource()->getAttribute(‘cena_balenia_czk’)->getFrontend()->getValue($product);
echo ‘-’;
echo $product->getResource()->getAttribute(‘czk’)->getFrontend()->getValue($product);
echo ‘
‘;
}
?>

Magento: Parsing Schema: can’t import schema from

Posted on October 13th, 2012 | Posted by admin

I had developed script to connect to Magento server to pull some products by sending values to filter. All of a sudden, last Tuesday it stopped working. I had implemented the searching products from Magento via AJAX so the client was not able to see the error messages to. It seemed it very strange for me too.

Later when I try to connect to the Magento server from outside that AJAX script, then I found the following fatal error message:

Fatal error: Uncaught SoapFault exception: [WSDL] SOAP-ERROR: Parsing Schema: can’t import schema from ’http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/’

Magento normally contains the line following line in its WSDL:

  1. <import namespace=”http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/” schemalocation=”http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/”>
  2. </import>
