Google Analytics in Magento

Some of you who work with Magento for a long time might think that this topic is so clear that it doesn’t need to have an article. We get many inquiries to finalize the work somebody already started. One of the things we notice is that some developers tend to embed the Google Analytics code directly in the Magento theme files. Yes, it works and you will see the standard traffic data in the Google Analytics interface, but it is not a way to go.

In most of the cases, those developers edit footer.phtml in app/design/frontend/default/[your_theme]/template/page/html folder. As I said, the Google Analytics will track visitors data properly, but the main issue is that the eCommerce data will not be collected. To enable eCommerce data to be visible, first step is that you let Google Analytics to know that the profile is actually an E-Commerce site.

Configuration error on new Magento installation

Posted on May 4th, 2011 | Posted by admin

I am installing a fresh magento 1.3.2.1 in my Windows XP computer. I have Xampp installed. While installing magento, I had a problem at the configuration step where I had to fill database host, username, password etc. When I click continue after filling the required fields, the installation process doesn’t move forward. I am redirected to the same page.

Solution:

I googled and was suggested to put 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost in the url; e.g. to put http://127.0.0.1/magento  instead of http://localhost/magento . I did the same but then I got the following error displayed:

PHP extension error while installing Magento

Posted on May 4th, 2011 | Posted by admin

I was installing Magento 1.3.2.1 in my Windows XP computer. I am using Xampp. I encountered the following errors during the installation.

PHP Extension “curl” must be loaded
PHP Extension “mcrypt” must be loaded
PHP Extension “pdo_mysql” must be loaded

I googled and the answer was to load the extension in php.ini file. In xampp, there are two places where php.ini file is found. It is present inside php folder and inside apache/bin folder. You can load extensions mentioned in the above error by changing the php.ini file. Search for curl, mcrypt and pdo_mysql then just uncomment i.e. remove the semi-colon (;) present before the line of the extension. After that, you have to restart (stop and start) apache from your xampp control panel.
