Just like any other open source Magento commerce also requires to be backed up from time to time. You don’t want to end up loosing critical information without backup do you? Typically, backups are life savers especially if you loose critical part of your database or even code. I hope that there shouldn’t be a time when you have to use backups to restore data but what if you fall in such situation. Various hosting servers do keep backup but those running on shared servers, backup is not there in most of the cases. Even relying completely on hosting company to keep backups all the times is not wise as hosting companies are also attacked by malicious scripts, hacks and to resolve the issue they might end up loosing your precious data.

There are two types of backups and it entirely depends upon your requirement and store size. You can either opt for full backup or choose incremental backup weekly. In case you have lots of orders taking place daily then you have to rethink your backup strategy. We have created a Magento extension especially for those who do not wish to spend time configuring store backups.

Some days ago, I worked on a project which has many URLs linked to static content page. These URLs are shown in main menu. As you know, in main menu are categories. Normally, almost developers add these URLs directly to the phtml file. But I will show you how to do it by another way which is using category .Therefore, you can use each category for one static content page.
First of all, create a static block (instead of static page) by going to CMS > Static Blocks.
After that, going to Catalog > Manage Categories to add new category. To make the category show static block, navigate to ‘Display settings’ tab and select ‘Static block only’ in display mode drop down field.
