Download extension manually using pear/mage

Pear for 1.4, mage for 1.5. File downloaded into /downloader/.cache/community/

./pear download magento-community/Shipping_Agent
./mage download community Shipping_Agent

Clear cache/reindex

<?php
// clear cache
Mage::app()->removeCache('catalog_rules_dirty');
// reindex prices
Mage::getModel('index/process')->load(2)->reindexEverything();
/*
1 = Product Attributes
2 = Product Attributes
3 = Catalog URL Rewrites
4 = Product Flat Data
5 = Category Flat Data
6 = Category Products
7 = Catalog Search Index
8 = Tag Aggregation Data
9 = Stock Status
*/
?>

Load category by id

<?php
$_category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load(89);
$_category_url = $_category->getUrl();
?>

Load product by id or sku

<?php
$_product_1 = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load(12);
$_product_2 = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->loadByAttribute('sku','cordoba-classic-6-String-guitar');
?>

Get Configurable product's Child products

<?php
// input is $_product and result is iterating child products
$childProducts = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_type_configurable')->getUsedProducts(null, $product);
?>

Get Configurable product's Children's (simple product) custom attributes

<?php
// input is $_product and result is iterating child products
$conf = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_type_configurable')->setProduct($_product);
$col = $conf->getUsedProductCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('*')->addFilterByRequiredOptions();
foreach($col as $simple_product){
	var_dump($simple_product->getId());
}
?>

Log to custom file

<?php Mage::log('Your Log Message', Zend_Log::INFO, 'your_log_file.log'); ?>

Call Static Block

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('block-name')->toHtml(); ?>

Add JavaScript to page

First approach: page.xml - you can add something like

<action method="addJs"><script>path/to/my/file.js</script></action>

Second approach: Find page/html/head.phtml in your theme and add the code directly to page.html.

Third approach: If you look at the stock page.html mentioned above, you'll see this line

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml() ?>

Normally, the getChildHtml method is used to render a specific child block. However, if called with no paramater, getChildHtml will automatically render all the child blocks. That means you can add something like

<!-- existing line --> <block type="page/html_head" name="head" as="head">
	<!-- new sub-block you're adding --> <block type="core/template" name="mytemplate" as="mytemplate" template="page/mytemplate.phtml"/>
	...

to page.xml, and then add the mytemplate.phtml file. Any block added to the head block will be automatically rendered. (this automatic rendering doesn't apply for all layout blocks, only for blocks where getChildHtml is called without paramaters).

Check if customer is logged in

<?php $logged_in = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn(); // (boolean) ?>

Get the current category/product/cms page

<?php
$currentCategory = Mage::registry('current_category');
$currentProduct = Mage::registry('current_product');
$currentCmsPage = Mage::registry('cms_page');
?>

Run Magento Code Externally

<?php
require_once('app/Mage.php'); //Path to Magento
umask(0);
Mage::app();
// Run you code here
?>

Programmatically change Magento’s core config data

<?php
// find 'path' in table 'core_config_data' e.g. 'design/head/demonotice'
$my_change_config = new Mage_Core_Model_Config();
// turns notice on
$my_change_config->saveConfig('design/head/demonotice', "1", 'default', 0);
// turns notice off
$my_change_config->saveConfig('design/head/demonotice', "0", 'default', 0);
?>

Changing the Admin URL

Open up the /app/etc/local.xml file, locate the <frontName> tag, and change the ‘admin’ part it to something a lot more random, eg:

<frontName><![CDATA[supersecret-admin-name]]></frontName>

Clear your cache and sessions.

Magento: Mass Exclude/Unexclude Images

By default, Magento will check the 'Exclude' box for you on all imported images, making them not show up as a thumbnail under the main product image on the product view.

# Mass Unexclude
UPDATE`catalog_product_entity_media_gallery_value` SET `disabled` = '0' WHERE `disabled` = '1';
# Mass Exclude
UPDATE`catalog_product_entity_media_gallery_value` SET `disabled` = '1' WHERE `disabled` = '0';

getBaseUrl – Magento URL Path

<?php
// http://example.com/
echo Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_WEB);
// http://example.com/js/
echo Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_JS);
// http://example.com/index.php/
echo Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_LINK);
// http://example.com/media/
echo Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_MEDIA);
// http://example.com/skin/
echo Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_SKIN);
?>

Get The Root Category In Magento

<?php
$rootCategoryId = Mage::app()->getStore()->getRootCategoryId();
$_category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($rootCategoryId);
// You can then get all of the top level categories using:
$_subcategories = $_category->getChildrenCategories();
?>

Get The Current URL In Magento

<?php echo Mage::helper('core/url')->getCurrentUrl(); ?>

Category Navigation Listings in Magento

Make sure the block that you’re working is of the type catalog/navigation. If you’re editing catalog/navigation/left.phtml then you should be okay.

<div id="leftnav">
	<?php $helper = $this->helper('catalog/category') ?>
	<?php $categories = $this->getStoreCategories() ?>
	<?php if (count($categories) > 0): ?>
		<ul id="leftnav-tree" class="level0">
			<?php foreach($categories as $category): ?>
				<li class="level0<?php if ($this->isCategoryActive($category)): ?> active<?php endif; ?>">
					<a href="<?php echo $helper->getCategoryUrl($category) ?>"><span><?php echo $this->escapeHtml($category->getName()) ?></span></a>
					<?php if ($this->isCategoryActive($category)): ?>
						<?php $subcategories = $category->getChildren() ?>
						<?php if (count($subcategories) > 0): ?>
							<ul id="leftnav-tree-<?php echo $category->getId() ?>" class="level1">
								<?php foreach($subcategories as $subcategory): ?>
									<li class="level1<?php if ($this->isCategoryActive($subcategory)): ?> active<?php endif; ?>">
										<a href="<?php echo $helper->getCategoryUrl($subcategory) ?>"><?php echo $this->escapeHtml(trim($subcategory->getName(), '- ')) ?></a>
									</li>
								<?php endforeach; ?>
							</ul>
							<script type="text/javascript">decorateList('leftnav-tree-<?php echo $category->getId() ?>', 'recursive')</script>
						<?php endif; ?>
					<?php endif; ?>
				</li>
			<?php endforeach; ?>
		</ul>
		<script type="text/javascript">decorateList('leftnav-tree', 'recursive')</script>
	<?php endif; ?>
</div>

Debug using zend

<?php echo Zend_Debug::dump($thing_to_debug, 'debug'); ?>

$_GET, $_POST & $_REQUEST Variables

<?php
// $_GET
$productId = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('product_id');
// The second parameter to getParam allows you to set a default value which is returned if the GET value isn't set
$productId = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('product_id', 44);
$postData = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getPost();
// You can access individual variables like...
$productId = $postData['product_id']);
?>

Get methods of an object

First, use get_class to get the name of an object's class.

<?php $class_name = get_class($object); ?>

Then, pass that get_class_methods to get a list of all the callable methods on an object

<?php
$class_name = get_class($object);
$methods = get_class_methods($class_name);
foreach($methods as $method)
{
	var_dump($method);
}
?>

<?php
$_category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load(47);
$_productCollection = $_category->getProductCollection();
if($_productCollection->count()) {
	foreach( $_productCollection as $_product ):
		echo $_product->getProductUrl();
		echo $this->getPriceHtml($_product, true);
		echo $this->htmlEscape($_product->getName());
	endforeach;
}
?>

UPDATE
	customer_entity,
	newsletter_subscriber
SET
	customer_entity.`group_id` = 5
WHERE

In /app/design/frontend/default/site/template/catalog/product/view/type/

<?php $_helper = $this->helper('catalog/output'); ?>
<?php $_associatedProducts = $this->getAllowProducts() ?>
<?php //var_dump($_associatedProducts); ?>
<br />
<br />
<?php if (count($_associatedProducts)): ?>
	<?php foreach ($_associatedProducts as $_item): ?> 
		<a href="<?php echo $_item->getProductUrl() ?>"><?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_item, $_item->getName(), 'name') ?> | <?php echo $_item->getName() ?> | <?php echo $_item->getPrice() ?></a>

Delete all products:

DELETE FROM `catalog_product_entity`;

Because of the integrity checks that are placed in the database all the other tables are cleared as well, may take a bit longer, but deleting is always safer than truncating
