How to Manage Product Tags in magento

Posted on January 29th, 2015 | Posted by admin

By default Magento includes the option to allow customers to tag your products. When a customer tags a certain product, the tag appears as pending and must be approved before it can show up on the product page.

Let’s add a tag to our product, approve it and see how it then shows up on the product page. To add a tag to a product, simply write the tag word in the Add Your Tags: field available on the product page and click Add Tags. We’ll add “Great” as a tag. A confirmation message will show up saying that the tag has been accepted for moderation

How to display Parent Category of a subcategory

Posted on August 18th, 2014 | Posted by admin

In Magento : To display the parent category of the subcategory you are located in you will have to use the current code. We used this into a file called list_parent.phtml located on our sidebar on this location:
/app/design/frontend/default/YOUR THEME/template/catalog/navigation/list_parent.phtml

<div> <strong><span><?php echo $this->__('Browse By') ?></span></strong> </div>
<dl id="narrow-by-list2">
  <dt><?php echo $this->__('Category') ?></dt>
                $currentCat = Mage::registry('current_category');
                //if Rootcategory display current category only
                //this gets around the problem of displaying DEFAULT CATEGORY
                if ( $currentCat->getParentId() == Mage::app()->getStore()->getRootCategoryId() )
                    //Display current category

Why would you like to disable cache?

Well probably you wouldn’t. Especially not when your store is already live an fully functional. But on developing stage, disabling the cache would make it possible for you to immediately test and control the fluent changes you are constantly applying to your theme, locale files or scripts. Not disabling cache in this case will cause a huuuge frustration. Not to mention an almost irrepressible desire to bang your head against the nearest break wall! Not at all recommended, and may be avoided quite easily like so:

In the back office, go to system => configuration => cache management.
