Some time we need to some design changes on order success page in Magento and we face problem when we try to customize the design of order success page. Because, success page appear when we place an order. Once we refresh the page success page gone away. To see success page again we need to place an order again. Its is a big hassle for developer.

To view order success page just comment out few lines of code in successAction.(/app/code/core/Mage/Checkout/controllers/OnepageController.php).

Search public function successAction()

Magento offers simple category and product ordering although this may not be obvious at first. I thought I might share this simple information.
Category ordering
To change the order of categories, from within the Admin, go to Catalog -> Manage Categories. Simply drag and drop the category or subcategory to the location you need it.
Product ordering
As products can belong to multiple categories, to order them you will need to go and order them within the categories. From within Admin go to Catalog -> Manage Categories. Select the category to order it’s products. Now go to the category’s ‘Category Products’ tab. Here you will see all products that belong to the category. The last column in the table is the Position and sets the ordering of products within the category.

Magento Core API allows us to retrieve the Orders Placed in a Magento Store. In this example we will be filtering the orders based on its status. Magento Webservices allows us to use Both Soap and XMLRPC for accessing the Core API, for this example i have used both in the below code snippet.

<?php
$soapclient = new SoapClient('http://example.com/api/soap/?wsdl');
$sessionId = $soapclient->login('YourAPIUser', 'YourAPIKey'); /
/Webservice User and API Key
// Getting Order listing by Order Status
// Example Usage:  array('eq' => 'canceled') , array('eq' =>
'processing'),array('eq' => 'complete')

I’ll be clear… Magento is not good as you could imagine. In fact sucks in so many ways.

Today i’m showing you one. There is no backend option to change the Default Sort Order in your product listing (catalog).

Lucky there is an easy solution.
The Toolbar
Look for the file toolbar.php located in:

/app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Block/Product/List
Create the Local folder
Create the same folder structure in the local. Now the future upgrades will not affect your changes.

Should be like:

/app/code/local/Mage/Catalog/Block/Product/List
Edit the Toolbar
