How many Magento Certified Solution Specialists are there? Which country, city, solution partner hold the most badges and what are some of the trends that can be seen throughout the first 6 months of Magento’s latest official certification program? Check it out in the second State of Magento Solution Specialist Certification report by Inchoo.

Many things have changed in the three and a half months after I published the first report of this type. Back then Europe was in a slim lead over North America while USA accounted for almost half of all solution specialists worldwide.

Well, some things have clearly changed since July…

Just last week, Magento announced the release of Enterprise Edition 1.14.1. Of course, the eCommerce and Magento communities are very excited to upgrade to this new version, but not every e-store utilizes Enterprise Edition. Some sites rely on Magento’s free platform, Community Edition. What about the CE update? If you use CE for your site, then you are in luck. Within the next few weeks, Magento will release Community Edition 1.9.1! Watch our video detailing the new features or read onward to get an idea of what is in store for the new version:

While eCommerce is now a common part of our society, it's still evolving so rapidly that it can still be quite exciting.  For example, I’ve written a few articles recently about Private Event Retailing (flash sales, daily deals, etc.), and how they’ve revived the “thrill of the find” in online shopping.  I’ve also discussed how eCommerce professionals could leverage some of the innovations that video game developers have perfected to enhance online shopping experiences.

Because of my interest in these areas, I was happy to happy to discover that there's a new app in town.  It’s called Peach. And Peach does something that many (including myself) never thought possible: It makes Flash Sales even more interesting and engaging than…

Recently, I posted about avoiding common coding problems. These practices can help to reduce debugging overall time. Even after common coding issues have been reduced, you are often still left with a need to debug more complex problems. These are the bugs that you either didn't write, which are sometimes buried in the core of the framework or application on which you are working (in our case, Magento), or that stem from incorrect or incomplete logic.

As already posted on MageHero we started the development of a seperate n98-magerun version for Magento 2.
We decided to create a complete new version and against some other options like to create a “clone command” or sperate lib inside the same phar file.

The purposes are:

  • The phar file will be too big (> 4MB)
  • The Magento 2 framework is too different
  • We need a clean development start
  • Maintenance!

If you like to test the current unstable development version you can checkout the existing source code on github.

This year we are busy working on challenging direct-to-consumer strategy implementations (D2C) for some major manufacturers and brands on a global level.

One existing case we recently have given a first sneak peak at the recent Magento Live conference in Munich was the first step of our joined work with HEAD, the well known global sports brand company.

HEAD, featuring many different sports divisions such as tennis, racquetball, swimming, diving etc. is a perfect and exiting example of the challenges such companies are facing today when trying to establish direct relationships to their end customers for the first time in their history.

Not only is this a technical challenge but primarily and organizational one, everything has to be build up from scratch, from hiring dedicated roles such as ecommerce responsible, customer support, marketing, content management, so specialist and business intelligence experts to the various business readiness tasks around content…

Recently, we have noticed an interesting issue in Magento Community Edition and decided to share our findings with our readers. There is no restriction on the product URL key duplicates in the Community Edition, so, multiple products can have the same URL key and the product URL path generation should handle it. This article is about how the URL path generation manages the duplicated URL keys, the issues that appear during that process and how to cope with all these problems.

It turned out that the duplicated URL keys can appear when there are products with the similar or the same names created. Magento creates the URL keys automatically, basing on the product name, and if this URL key was not manually set.

First of all, let’s create two products with the same URL key “test-duplicated-url-key”. In our sample data environment they get IDs 173 and 174. Let’s call the ID 173 the ORIGINAL and ID 174 the DUPLICATE further in this article. If…

It’s official: Magento has released Enterprise Edition 1.14.1! If you work with Magento, you know why this is cause for excitement. Some may be asking, “So what?” Yes, it’s an update, but this particular update comes with a lot of new features and additions, which will make Enterprise Edition much more powerful, efficient, and better than previous versions. How? Well, if you read onward, you can get a taste of what this upgraded version has to offer:



Swatches have been added to product images, so customers can see color, fabric, and other variations with a product. Essentially, when a customer clicks on a product, it takes them to the product page that displays the product, gives information, shows price, etc. Right now, there are not many options for…

Darin geht es unter anderem um die Stärken und Schwächen von Magento, welchen Herausforderungen Händler typischerweise begegnen müssen und was man sich von Magento 2 erhoffen darf. Zudem sprachen wir darüber, welche Performance- und Sicherheitsmaßnahmen man für Magento ergreifen kann.
