Error Occurred After Magento Extension Installed

There are many factors which causes your Magento Extension to fail during installation. If you were a developer, debugging it is a technical solution to solve this issue. If not, better to consider these common issues.

 

responsive Magento-Extensions

Identifying possible causes of error and it’s respective solution

– 404 error on extension page

This is a common issue you can eventually encounter after installation especially you went through FTP when transferring files, it is recommended to use Magento Connect because it automatically refreshes its cache. It is advisable to flush Magento cache via Dashboad > System > Cache Management > Flush Magento Cache then logout and login again when  you have no choice other than uploading it via FTP.

– Database error / SQL state similar issues

This is usually cause by wrong procedure of installation, some extensions need to install through Magento connect, incompatible Magento versions, and erratic extension like what you can see few lines below.

SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table ‘blahblah_latest.blah_notification’ doesn’t exist

In whatever case, always check its manuals or documentation for safety proceedings. The solution is to uninstall the extension and contact the extension author about this issue. Since there are free extensions, perhaps it is not a big deal to buy them a cup of coffee so that you could support them to improve their extension.

The best way to Uninstall the extension is to delete the xml file like Vendorname_Extensionname.xml

In the modules folder like this file path using your FTP or server file explorer.

/public_html/app/etc/modules

 

You should consider these things when installing the extension

When using FTP, make sure that you upload extension files in its correct path. In most cases you must upload files in the main folder where your Magento installed. Disable your Magento Cache, decompile/decompress it through System > Tool.

Magento is one of the best ecommerce platform yet it has a complex programming architecture which considerably difficult to troubleshoot or finding a solution, unlike WordPress has a handy file structures or you can even fix a problem in just a simple coding. It is a wise step to read the extension review before installation. Read the manual carefully informing which Magento versions does the extension supported and contact the extension author for further information.

How does it work?

Technically, this software will only get in action when your browser’s viewport is less than your website width padding/margins excluded. So portrait view of tablet and other small screens will most likely notice changes. The logic behind with it is to keep your website’s interface natural on laptop or desktop screens to keep all details and functions of your website. You can also perform a test using your favorite browser such as Firefox, Chrome, Internet, Explorer, and Safari by dragging in-out to minimize and maximize.

“We needed something to help make our website more mobile friendly. It just did not work correctly when viewing on mobile. So I came across magic liquidiser plugin. I put the free version on a clients site and it worked straight away so I decided to give it a try on my own site but with it being more complicated I needed to upgrade.

The upgrade is $49.99 and sometimes when you purchase something online you hope that it works and the upgrade was brilliant. I could not fault the customer support at all so the upgrade is defiantly worth it if you want a truly responsive website and top class support. Thoroughly recommended.”

Are you worried of losing sales because of a crappy module? Are you upset of testing One Page Checkout extension available in the market today? Does your Magento checkout supports payment merchant and shipping methods? These issues can be solved by Responsive One Page Checkout Extension (ROPC).

Nowadays mobile friendly websites are favorable for the mobile users because they can engage conveniently, particularly buying digital or physical products online. Whether your customers’ are using tablet or smartphone and in landscape or portrait view shouldn’t be a problem because Responsive One Page Checkout (ROPC) adapts on different screen sizes. When it comes to e-commerce platform, Magento is one of the best options.

One of inconvenient Magento feature is its native checkout page that provides users to fill-in long steps (usually 6 steps) form with many unnecessary fields that may lead to shopping cart abandonment because of users’ frustration requiring them to fill-in a lot of asked information. So we created ROPC to transform the native Magento checkout page into simpler one.

Despite of existing commercial Magento Checkout Modules in the market today, you can choose from free to premium extensions, but be sure to use reliable module because some modules may totally override your Magento core files and will result to purchase error process for your customer.

It is very wise to test the checkout module first before installing it to production website because this this is crucial module. Imagine if you have 10 sales lost per day for an item of $100, that’s already $1,000 lost per day. That’s why we thoroughly test ROPC side by side to avoid any errors and provide a better a One Page/Step Checkout Module.

Why you need ROPC?

This software is intended for Magento store owners and developers. Although Magento provides a checkout process, however it isn’t convenient for your customers to oblige them to fill in many information.

ROPC inherits the native Magento checkout feature and programmatically used prototype.js to make it as simply as a single step, thus, it won’t break the Magento Core files and you are not worried about shopping cart abandonment due to checkout error.

Most of common complaints about commercial checkout modules are 3rd party shipping and payment gateway modules not supported, tax and shipping fee not calculated well, and doesn’t update order review section correctly.

Utilizing ROPC module will definitely simplify your Magento Checkout Page, your customers can conveniently used their smartphones or tablets when purchasing a product or subscribing to services.
