Hello Everyone,

 

After a long search i found solution to validate php tags using javascript from input values in magento.

 

I have modified magento/js/prototype/validation.js file and added new class to validate php tags:

You can review below code inside ‘Validation.addAllThese’ array  to add new class to validate php tags.


['validate-no-php-tags', 'PHP tags are not allowed', function(v) {

return  !/<\?[=|?php]?[\s\S]*?\?>/.test(v) && !/<\?[=|php]?[\s\S]*?/.test(v) && !/\?[\s\S]*?/.test(v) ;

}],

you can use ‘validate-no-php-tags’  css class in input tag in magento.

Above validation will validate tags like ‘<?php’, ‘<?’, ‘?>’, ‘<?php ?>’, ‘<? ?>’.

I hope above solution works like  charm.

 

Thanks,

Bijal Bhavsar

Hello Guys,

Today i’ll show you how to add affiliate code in checkout success page.

Below is the code for Product Specific Campaign setup for magento.

Open success.phtml from PATH:  Yourproject/app/design/frontend/package/theme/template/checkout/success.phtml.

Add Below code at the end of file.

We need to display below image code at checkout success page.

<img src="http://yourdomain.directtrack.com/i_prod/yourdomainname/PRODUCT_STRING/TRANSACTION_ID/OPTIONAL_INFO">  
<?php /****** START::  Affiliate  *******/?>
<?php  if($_orderID = $this->getOrderId()) {
$url = 'https://yourdomain.directtrack.com/i_prod/yourdomainname/';
$_order =  Mage::getModel('sales/order')->loadByIncrementId($_orderID);?>
<?php  $_items = $_order->getItemsCollection(); ?>
<?php $querystring='';
foreach ($_items as $_item):  ?>
<?php $querystring .='prod:'.$_item->getSku().':qty:'.$_item->getQtyOrdered();?>
<?php endforeach; ?>
<?php $querystring.= '/'.$_orderID;?>
<?php $url = $url.$querystring;?>
<img src="<?php echo $url?>" />
<?php }?>
<?php /****** END *********/?>

Hello,

Today i’ll show you how to resolve issue of custom module frontend url is forced to https. instead of http. If you have used module creator to create module. Than you will definetly find below code in config.xml


<admin>
       <routers>
         <[ModuleName]>
            <use>admin</use>
            <args>
                <module>[NameSpace_ModuleName]</module>
                <frontName>[frontName]</frontName>
            </args>
        </[ModuleName]>
    </routers>
</admin>

To resolve issue of redirection to https instead of http, you need to comment above code from module config.xml file Path: app/code/(codepool)/(NameSpace)/(ModuleName)/etc/config.xml OR you can add different “frontName” for <admin> and <frontend> routers. Eg.:


<admin>
       <routers>
         <[ModuleName]>
            <use>admin</use>
            <args>
                <module>[NameSpace_ModuleName]</module>
                <frontName>[frontName]</frontName>
            </args>
        </[ModuleName]>
    </routers>
</admin>

<frontend>
       <routers>
         <[ModuleName]>
            <use>standard</use>
            <args>
                <module>[NameSpace_ModuleName]</module>
                <frontName>[frontName1]</frontName>
            </args>
        </[ModuleName]>
    </routers>
</frontend>

As per above code admin url will be http://yourdomain.com/index.php/frontName/adminhtml_moduleName/ and  frontend url will be like: http://yourdomain.com/index.php/frontName1

I hope above content is useful to you. Thanks for visiting my blog. Feel free to ask questions, if you have doubt.

Hello,

Magento maintains several tables for logging. These tables log things such as customer accesses and which products have been compared. Magento has a mechanism for cleaning these logs regularly, but unfortunately this feature is disabled by default and most customers do not turn it on.

The following tables are managed by Magento’s Log Cleaning function:


TRUNCATE `dataflow_batch_export`;
TRUNCATE `dataflow_batch_import`;
TRUNCATE `log_customer`;
TRUNCATE `log_quote`;
TRUNCATE `log_summary`;
TRUNCATE `log_summary_type`;
TRUNCATE `log_url`;
TRUNCATE `log_url_info`;
TRUNCATE `log_visitor`;
TRUNCATE `log_visitor_info`;
TRUNCATE `log_visitor_online`;
TRUNCATE `report_viewed_product_index`;
TRUNCATE `report_compared_product_index`;
TRUNCATE `report_event`;
TRUNCATE `index_event`;

You can use below script file and use it by scheduling cronjob. Filename will be cleanup.php


<?php
$xml = simplexml_load_file('./app/etc/local.xml', NULL, LIBXML_NOCDATA);

$db['host'] = $xml->global->resources->default_setup->connection->host;
$db['name'] = $xml->global->resources->default_setup->connection->dbname;
$db['user'] = $xml->global->resources->default_setup->connection->username;
$db['pass'] = $xml->global->resources->default_setup->connection->password;
$db['pref'] = $xml->global->resources->db->table_prefix;

if($_GET['clean'] == 'log') clean_log_tables();
if($_GET['clean'] == 'var') clean_var_directory();

function clean_log_tables() {
	global $db;

	$tables = array(
		'dataflow_batch_export',
		'dataflow_batch_import',
		'log_customer',
		'log_quote',
		'log_summary',
		'log_summary_type',
		'log_url',
		'log_url_info',
		'log_visitor',
		'log_visitor_info',
		'log_visitor_online',
		'index_event',
		'report_event',
		'report_compared_product_index',
		'report_viewed_product_index',
		'catalog_compare_item',
		'catalogindex_aggregation',
		'catalogindex_aggregation_tag',
		'catalogindex_aggregation_to_tag'
	);

	mysql_connect($db['host'], $db['user'], $db['pass']) or die(mysql_error());
	mysql_select_db($db['name']) or die(mysql_error());

	foreach($tables as $v => $k) {
		@mysql_query('TRUNCATE `'.$db['pref'].$k.'`');
	}
}

function clean_var_directory() {
	$dirs = array(
		'downloader/.cache/*',
		'downloader/pearlib/cache/*',
		'downloader/pearlib/download/*',
		'var/cache/',
		'var/locks/',
		'var/log/',
		'var/report/',
		'var/session/',
		'var/tmp/'
	);

	foreach($dirs as $v => $k) {
		exec('rm -rf '.$k);
	}
}
?>

Save the file to the root directory of Magento code.

Next, open cPanel and click on the Cron Manager link.

In the Add Cron Job section, select Once a day from the Common Settings dropdown list. In the Command field, enter the following line of code, making sure to replace the yourdomain name with your own:


curl -s -o /dev/null http://www.yourdomain.com/cleanup.php?clean=log

Once you have this set at your preferred interval, click the Add Cron Job button.

Repeat the same steps as you did before, but change the Common Settings dropdown selection to 1st and 15th, and add the following line of code to the Command field:


curl -s -o /dev/null http://www.yourdomain.com/cleanup.php?clean=var

Now click the Add Cron Job button.

Hello,

Sometimes when we do re-index in magento, it shows error like “Can’t initialize indexer process”. And this error occurs while re-indexing “Product Prices”, than you can’t able to save product from admin too.

To resolve the above error you need to run below query. Probably it removes only 1 record.
This solution was taken from Magento forum. Here is the direct link:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/176845/



DELETE cpop.* FROM catalog_product_option_price AS cpop
INNER JOIN catalog_product_option AS cpo
ON cpo.option_id = cpop.option_id
WHERE
cpo.type = ‘checkbox’ OR
cpo.type = ‘radio’ OR
cpo.type = ‘drop_down’;DELETE cpotp.* FROM catalog_product_option_type_price AS cpotp
INNER JOIN catalog_product_option_type_value AS cpotv
ON cpotv.option_type_id = cpotp.option_type_id
INNER JOIN catalog_product_option AS cpo
ON cpotv.option_id = cpo.option_id
WHERE
cpo.type  ‘checkbox’ AND
cpo.type  ‘radio’ AND
cpo.type  ‘drop_down’;

The upgrade error is probably corrected by updating most tables to use the InnoDB engine (instead of MyISAM). The syntax to update tables to the InnoDB engine is as follows:

ALTER TABLE table_name ENGINE = InnoDB;

I noticed that a fresh install had no problem reindexing everything, but there were odd errors creating tables after an upgrade. The errors are found by turning on the exceptions log: Admin -> System -> Configuration -> Developer -> Log Settings -> Enabled = Yes.

This outputs to: /var/log/exception.log

Most errors had something to do with cryptic foreign key constraints. Changing most tables to InnoDB seems to solve this problem.

I’m including the code that I ran on sql.

ALTER TABLE catalog_product_index_price_idx_option ENGINE = MyISAM;
ALTER TABLE catalog_product_index_price_idx_option_aggregate ENGINE = MyISAM;
ALTER TABLE sendfriend_log ENGINE = MyISAM;

After updating to InnoDB I can able to reindex everything successfully and the store seems to be back up and running as it should. All products are back.

I hope this post will help to solve problem of reindexing.

Hello,

Below code will delete particular category in magento.


 require_once realpath(dirname(__FILE__).'/app/Mage.php';
 Mage::app('default'); // Default or your store view name.
 Mage::register('isSecureArea', 1);// This will set secure area as admin
 $category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load(15);//Here 15 is category id & it create category object
 $category->delete(); // This code will delete category whose id is 15

Hello All,

Today i found how to set default filter in product grid by product type (e.g.  ‘simple’) in admin product grid. For that you need to rewrite grid.php class of product in path  yourproject/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Catalog/Product/Grid.php

You need to add below code in _construct() method of grid.php


  $this->setDefaultFilter( array(
                'type' => constant(get_class(Mage::getSingleton('catalog/product_type')) . '::TYPE_SIMPLE'),
            )); 

In above code ‘type’ is field and “constant(get_class(Mage::getSingleton(‘catalog/product_type’)) . ‘::TYPE_SIMPLE’)” is value, you can change its value as per your requirement.

I hope this code will help you, Thanks for reading my blog.

Hello Guys,

I want to share you how to change product attribute input type from dropdown to multiselect in magento.

Below code will change input type of attribute ‘grade’ & remove value of attribute already exist in products. You can create file and add below code, Don’t forget to replace ‘grade’ with your attribute code.


<?php
define('MAGENTO_ROOT', getcwd());

$mageFilename = MAGENTO_ROOT . '/app/Mage.php';
require_once $mageFilename;
Mage::setIsDeveloperMode(true);
umask(0);
Mage::app('default');

$installer = new Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Setup('core_setup');
$installer->startSetup();

$entityTypeId = $installer->getEntityTypeId('catalog_product');

$idAttributeOldSelect = $installer->getAttribute($entityTypeId, 'grade', 'attribute_id');
$installer->updateAttribute($entityTypeId,$idAttributeOldSelect, 'frontend_input','multiselect');
$installer->updateAttribute($entityTypeId,$idAttributeOldSelect, 'backend_type','varchar');
$installer->updateAttribute($entityTypeId,$idAttributeOldSelect, 'backend_model','eav/entity_attribute_backend_array');
$installer->updateAttribute($entityTypeId,$idAttributeOldSelect, 'source_model','');
$installer->run("DELETE FROM `catalog_product_entity_int` where `attribute_id` = {$idAttributeOldSelect}");
$installer->endSetup();
?>

 

I hope above code will help you.

Thank You,
Bijal Bhavsar 🙂
