One of our clients was so happy with the outcome of their usage of our Dynamic Category Products extension, they decided to write a not so small review. It was too big to fit into the review aea, so I decided to make it a blog entry.

Thank you for the awesome review Chris.

Ever wanted to create a Gift Promotion for your store to which the customer can add any product, from a specific category, and that item will be gifted (or half price, or any price for that matter)

The latest feature from ProxiBlue Gift Promotions can do exactly that!

A recent task was to integrate a client website with Airbrake.

Simple enough task, sicne Airbrake supplies a working magento module via github: https://github.com/airbrake/Airbrake-Magento

Unfortunately, integration was not as simple as initially thought, due to the Airbrake module and my own Newrelic module clashed in regards to the magento log stream writer.

Recently, the Google Product Feed for one of my clients simply stopped working (sporadically)

Investigation revealed timeout issues happening during the feed, even though the feed was allowed to run for hours, via settings and code. The problem seemed to occur more often than not, making for poor service on updating their Google Merchant Centre products.

Dynamic Category Products to the rescue!

Using Exact Target it is very possible to track conversions, using a basic img tag which passes some xml to the tracker.

You can read about how/what is required here: http://help.exacttarget.com/en/documentation/exacttarget/content/conversion_tracking/

Making this work with Google Tag manager is a bit tricky, but very possible

The process can be done in 3 easy steps:

1. Capture the relevant passed params from any cliked url

2. Pass that data to teh datalayer

3. Use the data in GTM

Google Tag Manager allows you to easily send all products to an external resource, by using the dataLayer, and a specific tag.

But what if you want to fire a tag only when a specific product, or set of products, have been purchased?

I worked out an easy way to get it done, using macro's and dataLayer.

Integrating chosen with magento

16/04/2015 2:57 pm

I was given the task of making a select list (with 300+ entries) searchable.

Since I do not like re-inventing the wheel, I went on a bit of a google to find a solution.

Chosen was the obvious choice (pun intended) - so I set about integrating that into magento.

I was given the task to track page views of all Catalog Product View pages, to a 3rd party providers system.

Since I now like to use Google Tag Manager (GTM), I had to work out a way to generate the required unique identifiers to run tag(s) on the product view pages only.

The issue is that GTM track pages using  URLs, but the URLs for each product page is diferent.
They are <the name of the product>.html, so using the URL rule (or macro in rules) will not work here.
I am simply not going to create a rule for each product page - that would just be completely mad, and I am only slightly mad.
