Thanks to Nicolas Batty (who seems to have the good sense to live offline) for a correction to the old Magento 2: Fixing Area code Not Set Exceptions quickies post. In the original post I’d recomended a fix for area code not set errors in Magento 2 CLI command by doing something like the following public function __construct( \Magento\Framework\App\State $appState, $name=null ) { // don't do this. No really, don't, it's here as a bad example. But why am I even // saying this -- if you're reading this you're probably not to sort to just blindly // copy/paste something. […]

The Magento page cache library contains a simple PHP reverse proxy that enables page content caching. There are two types of distinguished content: private and public.

The “private” content is being served for each user separately and represents the personalized data of a customer. E.g. shopping cart, wishlist, customer addresses, notification messages. This data should not be cached on the server side, and should not be shown to more than one user. The private content is stored on the client’s side by Customer Data JS component (Magento_Customer/js/customer-data.js). However, this is a topic for another blog post. Today we will focus on the second content type – public content, or rather the cacheable content and its variations in terms of customer grouping.

Reverse proxies serve “public” content to more than one user. Magento 2 uses HTTP context variables in order to make each cached content by URL totally unique. Context…

Fuzzers are a category of security testing software that will throw all sorts of random data at a software system looking for flaws that can then be exploited by individual penetration testers. Sort of like throwing a bunch of paint around the room trying to find the invisible man. I found this talk about a PHP Internals Fuzzer from Emmanuel Law compelling for a number of reasons. It’s not a beginer’s talk — you’ll need to connect a lot of dots if you’re new to the topic (or I should say, I had to connect a lot of dots since […]

This post by Julia Evans (author and artist of the amazing Bite Sized Linux zine) caught my eye. I can’t tell if this is an old-man-computer thing or if it’s a legitimate troubling trend (probably both), but as consumer web sites increasingly become a Squarespace/Wix sort of thing and not a DIY sort of thing, the DIY tools and infrastructure seem to be increasingly non-deterministic and flakey. A Content-Type header just vanishing, multiple hosting infrastructure providers shrugging their shoulders, and the web site owner not having the technical tools to diagnose the problems themselves (due to choices made by hosting […]

The startSetup() and endSetup() methods are commonly used for schema and data setup scripts by many developers. But do we actually need to call these methods for every install or upgrade script implementation? The correct answer may be quite unexpected. :) No, we don’t need to use these methods by default in our setup scripts in most cases. Let’s find out why.

We can jump through the code and check the implementation of the mentioned methods.

For Magento 1 the source code of \Varien_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Mysql::startSetup method is the following:

/** * Run additional environment before setup * * @return Varien_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Mysql */ public function startSetup() { $this->raw_query("SET SQL_MODE=''"); $this->raw_query("SET @OLD_FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=@@FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS, FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0"); $this->raw_query("SET @OLD_SQL_MODE=@@SQL_MODE, SQL_MODE='NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO'"); return $this; }

For Magento 2 the source code…

Recently I have written an article on how to include the custom field value to API response in case it is related to the same database table. In addition to the previous blog post, I would like to describe how to add external attributes to a collection, when the attribute values are stored in separate database tables.

Let’s say we need to make the customer’s dob attribute value available among the order attributes when we load order entity or collection.

There is a join element available for the extension_attributes.xml configuration file. The join element defines which object fields and the database table/column to be associated.

  • reference_table – reference table name;
  • reference_field – reference column name;
  • join_on_field – name of the column that will be used in the…

Keyword research is the cornerstone of almost every digital marketing activity like search engine optimization, PPC campaigns, website launch or redesign, as well as competitor analysis (which Zoran wrote about in one of his blog posts). If it’s properly done, it can prove itself as one of the highest return activities in the field of search advertising. In fact, you shouldn’t start any digital marketing activity without proper research, simple as that.

One of the most popular „free“ tools (you need to have Google Ads account) for doing a proper keyword research is Google’s Keyword Planner which can be found in Google Ads (ex. AdWords) interface. In 2016 Google started with the gradual rollout of a…
