Posted on December 27th, 2011 | Posted by admin

ecommerce shops feel the urge to showcase their special products or featured products either on their shop’s home page or category listing pages depending upon the requirement. Various ecommerce scripts have already developed this feature and you will see a dropdown or a radio button to mark a product as featured. Unfortunately, Magento doesn’t provide this option by default. There are numerous Magento extensions available which will do the job including our Featured product slider which creates the custom attribute called “featured” and shows on product catalog page (admin) but if you are looking for a extension free solution then read on.

Creating new custom attribute called “Featured”

First of all you will have to create a custom attribute called “featured”. Go to Catalog => Manage Attribute => Add New and enter “featured” as attribute code. Choose Scope as “Global” or choose as per your website. Under Catalog Input Type choose “Yes/No” (you can not change this once an attribute is created).

Posted on December 23rd, 2011 | Posted by admin

If sources are to be believed then Magento 2 should be the complete rewrite of Magento and it’s been in talks since it was declared but besides promises nothing is released yet. Roy Rubin says that Magento 2 is underway and they have posted in their blogs too so lets wait and see when they will release Magento 2. Ideally problems like database complexity, slow performance will be taken care of in Magento 2 but there are few more things which Magento 2 will offer i.e.:

  • Clear processes and transparency
  • Improved product quality
  • Improved performance and scalability
  • Improved product security
  • Enhanced Modular architecture
  • Improved coverage of Web APIs
  • Simplified customization process and learning curve
  • Improve Multi-language support
  • Improve education and product documentation for merchants and developers
