Hi Experts

Could you point how to populate Magento 1.9.x with data - insert table contents?

The database is correctly created but the tables are empty, making it dificult to start.

The data template that was given only reacreates the table structures without any data inside.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Experts

Could you point out a good online course of Magento2 preferencially that you know and had followed?

There are many options on YouTube, so it is difficult to choose a didactic without some guidance.

Unfortunatelly the two that I had bought from Udemy (in Portuguese, that helps a lot) are from the old version 1.9 of Magento.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Experts

Could you point where a complete Magento 1.9.x could be downloaded?

Thanks in advance

We are trying to setup an API in Magento 1.9.3.8 when the current admin password is entered, the system comes back with Invalid current password. Does any one know what password is magento expecting? I am the admin of the system so should be able to use my password, but the role name is not admin, is Sales API.

Any one here have an idea of how to fix this? Cannot setup my taxjar account because of this issue.

Thanks,

I am a college student. I have some money I inherited and I was thinking about starting an eCommerce site for vapes and juices.

I wanted some advice to see what platform I should use. To show you where my coding skills are at a project I am working on is available at wookify.com.

I've played around with Woocommerce. I'm intrigued by Magento.

I've also wondered about building an ecommerce site from scratch or with Laravel.

Thanks for your help, if I could make 1k a month I could pay expenses. What do I need to begin researching? Is this a foolish use of my money?

Magento 2.1 - How can I remove the ability for a user to UNSELECT a swatch image?

I have all configurable products, I have created default simple product configurations for all configurable products. In the configurable product I have a double swatch configuration and if the user accidentally clicks twice on a swatch image, that option becomes UNSELECTED. I need to remove the ability for the user to UNSELECT any swatch, the configurable product must always have a swatch selected. The user can choose different configurations, and move about, but should never be allowed to select nothing.

I have configured default configurations on all configurable products and I want the swatches to behave like radio buttons in that the user always has 1 of each selected. We have a total of 2 possible swatches. FRAME color and LENS color; one of each must always be selected.

Hi,

I am trying to build a sunglasses store in Magento 2. Here is the issue I am facing:

Lets call the sunglass model DUDE.

The DUDE can have: RED, BLUE and WHITE frames.
The DUDE can have: YELLOW, BLACK or BLUE lenses.

We are currently struggling to figure out how we can add the DUDE as a single product with 2 color configurations. We don't want to have 3 products named DUDE-RED, DUDE-BLUE, DUDE-WHITE.

Currently I am not able to figure out how to enter 1 product that has 2 color configurations.

Please help experts = )

Cloud Class® Course: C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

I'm a Cyber Security major and I met a small business that wants an ecommerce site. I've wanted to learn Magneto, so I'm going to postpone my current projects and I wanted to learn Magneto to build the sites. I make $200 a week and I pay my rent, so I was going to build the site for $300 so I can put it on my resume.

https://sherocommerce.com/how-much-does-a-magento-website-cost-general-pricing-guidelines-and-what-to-look-for/#mhost

I read the above link and it said a college student or a PHP Developer cannot create a Magneto website.

Is it unrealistic to think I could learn Magneto to create a site for a small business in 2018?

As far as hosting, I was going to recommend a $5 1GB Linode. I manage servers for my current job, so I will apply updates and manage the server for them for free, then when I need to update to a new version of GNU/Linux I will charge them a fee to do so.


I really want to learn Magneto. If this is possible can you link some good sites to learn Magneto?

If not I guess I will check out Wordpress.

I have the following mysql query which find duplicate urls in Magento 1. I would like to run an update query which will add a unique value onto the end of any duplicate urls ('value' in the query), probably just -1, -2, -3 etc for each duplicate it finds.

Could someone advise on how to do?

SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT entity_id) AS amount, `value`, entity_id FROM catalog_product_entity_varchar v WHERE EXISTS ( SELECT * FROM eav_attribute a WHERE attribute_code = "url_key" AND v.attribute_id = a.attribute_id AND EXISTS ( SELECT * FROM eav_entity_type e WHERE entity_type_code = "catalog_product" AND a.entity_type_id = e.entity_type_id ) ) GROUP BY v.VALUE HAVING `amount` > 1 ORDER BY `amount` DESC

Hi Experts

Could you explain if PHP Magento use is always interactive?

After a quick view over its features - even it has an MVC architecture, the configurations looks to be only by use of interactive menus.
Any programation is needed, so? or optionally it could be done?

Thanks in advance.

I need a responsive theme for the now unsupported Magento Professional ver. 1.10.0.2.

There are many themes out there but I can't find anything that says it supports Magento ver. 1.10.0.2.  Ideally, I'd like something that is free.

If this does not exist, is there a reasonably easy way to adapt other designs to 1.10?

Hi

I have a friend who is asking for a client :) about their Magento site.  They currently are using Magento 1.14.3.4  Enterprise.

They have a few questions.

1)  Is 1.14.3.4 the most current version of Magento Enterprise?
2)  When is the "end of life"for this version of Magento Enterprise.
3)  Is Magento 2 what they will need to upgrade to?   Or are there other Magento Enterprise options?

Thanks!
