Northern Arizona Wind and Sun is a reseller of solar panels and equipment. Over the last few years, they have been working to grow their online presence and revenue.

Schön bei Magento 2 finde ich die Funktion, dass man im Backend die Admin Grids z.B. bei den Bestellungen ziemlich einfach um Spalten erweitern oder kürzen kann. Und das ohne eine Extension. Einfach auf „Spalten“ oberhalb der Tabelle klicken und die gewünschtn Spalten anhaken oder abhaken. Schon ändert sich in Echtzeit die Tabelle mit den...

In Magento gibt es verschiedene Stufen (Scopes), auf denen Einstellungen gemacht werden.

Diese Stufen sind:

  1. Global
  2. Website
  3. Store Group
  4. Store View

Jeder Level geht weiters ins Detail bzw. erlaubt es, gezielter für einzelne Shops Einstellungen zu setzen.

Websites, Store Groups und Store Views werden gerne genutzt, um Unternehmensstrukturen, Märkte oder Länder eines Shops abzubilden. Sie können im Magento-Backend angelegt werden

Scopes Scope „Global“

Hier werden vor allem Standard-Einstellungen gesetzt. Für manche Features macht es nur Sinn, sie auf diesem Level zu aktivieren/deaktivieren – entweder aus logischen Gründen oder weil es für das ProgrammiererInnen-Team zu große Auswirkungen gehabt hätte, das im Code anders umzusetzen.
