This post explains how to reorder Magento javascript using layout XML. If you want to force the load order of Javascript included with the addJsmethod, the easiest way is to supply a name using the <params>. You can use the <params> element, with name attribute in it . Magento will load the Javascript files in alphabetical order based on the name supplied.

  • code
  • source
  1. <action method="addJs"><!-- this will be shown second -->
  2. <script>prototype/javascript1.js</script>
  3. <params><!--[CDATA[name="js002_second"]]--></params>

Do you have a site with product images of varying proportions. It can be annoying when Magento gives you that white border to make your product image square. Here’s how customize what color that background is: just add backgroundcolor('000', '000', '000') before the resize() method

<code>
&lt;img src="&lt;?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($this->getProduct(), 'thumbnail',<br/> $_image->getFile())->backgroundcolor('000', '000', '000')->resize(100); ?>" ... />
</code>

Better yet, get rid of the background using keepFrame(false):

&lt;img src="&lt;?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($this->getProduct(), 'thumbnail',<br/> $_image->getFile())->keepFrame(false)->resize(100); ?>" width="100"  ... />

Resizing after keepFrame(false) will resize the largest dimension. Don’t forget to delete your image height and width attributes (if need be)!

First, create some attributes you want to use, i have taken three attributes, motor, servo, deko. They should be global and drop-down. Create the “answers” for your attribues, b.e.

  • motor : None, Brushless, Brushless with prop
  • servo : None, 2xcheap, 2xexpensive
  • deko : None, colored tape

Put these attribues into a new attribute-set depending on default-set, remove any attribues you dont want and add the three new ones.

Create a configurable product depending on your new attribute-set. Choose only the three new attributes. Then give the information for the main-product, name, description, pricing and so on. Save the product.
