Magento 1.5 – New Features

March 9th, 2011 4 comments

Magento Commerce

Magento Commerce is one of the biggest and best ecommerce platforms out there right now. It currently empowers more than 90000 online stores around the world. Armed with everything you need to manage and successfully run an online store, Magento now boasts these amazing numbers:

  • 25+ Billion in transactions

  • 90000+ Merchants

  • 3500+ extensions/plugins

  • 2.5 Million Downloads

  •  

    Latest Upgrade – Magento Commerce 1.5

    We just upgraded our stores with Magento Commerce 1.5 and wanted to share the new features that were introduced in the latest update.

      Easy to Upgrade – Preserve Customisations

    The latest update basically doesn’t change the framework and schema of the store a lot which means that upgrading to the new version will not be difficult for your existing stores. The templates, skin and customisation should not break with the new version.

Magento Commerce New Features

New and Improved Import and Export Functionality

System > Import/Export now has the ability to pick Import or Export and export.

Magento Commerce 1.5 new features - Import / Export

You can then pick what data to export (Products / Customers) and what attributes to filter the data with.

Magento Commerce 1.5 new features - Export

Order Status Management – Modify Order Status and assign state

The Order data is now stored in the database and not XML files which means that you can now modify Order State and Status directly through Magento admin

via System >  Order Statuses

Magento Commerce new Features - Order Statuses

Order Status Management – Change Order Address

You can also modify an order address after an order. You can change the Billing Address as well as the Shipping Address using the edit buttons next to the order.

After changing an order address you get a message
“Changing address information will not recalculate shipping, tax or other order amount.”

New Magento Connect Manager 2

The 1.5 Magento Commerce comes with a new Magento Connect Manager Upgrade. The new version is 2.0 of the Magento Connect Manager.

Enable maintenance mode when installing or upgrading the platform:

This will show a “the site is not available right now due to maintenance/upgrade message”

Direct package file upload

The new direct package installation means that you can build your own packages and install them without the extension key.

Recent Changes to Facebook Fan Pages

With the recent changes in Facebook Fan Pages, we have now started to incorporate iframes in all of our clients Facebook Fan Pages rather than FBML tabs. This means that Facebook Fan Pages are now easier to update, quicker to update and you can now do all sorts of fancy stuff on the Facebook Fan Pages such as use flash (properly), videos and sophisticated Javascript such as jquery.

Tourism Tahiti Facebook Fan Page – Iframe Based

Tourism Tahiti Faceook FanPage is the first of our iframe based Facebook Fan Pages. It utilises the newer Facebook Fan Page framework. The page has targeted tabs that show relevant content based on the visitor profile. Also all the tabs have a video relevant to that information.  

The footer has links to the twitter page and a newsletter subscription that automatically adds a subscriber to their email subscription list.
