In this post I discuss the traditional approach of logging in OOP (object-oriented programming) and how it is implemented in Magento.

Topics covered: what are logs and why do you need them, how applications should be built to satisfy various developer’s and customer’s needs, what Magento 2 provides out of the box and alternative approach such as Logging + AOP (aspect-oriented programming).

What are logs?

Logs are recorded information (in chronological order) about system events for analysis in the future. The classic example of such an event is the occurrence of an error.

In a sense, logs give a certain visibility into the system processes by allowing you to get information which would not be available without being stored somewhere. For example, debugging information helps developers understand when an error occurred or what lead to the error.

Catalog price rules not applied when creating order from Magento admin

Posted on May 5th, 2015 | Posted by admin

Even though I’m in love with the platform, as it turns out, I tend to blog about Magento bugs quite often. I like to believe this is a good thing, because besides helping other Magento developers, finding and fixing bugs makes our favorite ecommerce platform better. It has nothing to do with frustration couple of days debugging session can cause, I ensure you. In this article I’m about to explain and provide workaround for bug affecting all Magento versions (including latest Magento CE at the time of writing), one that’s causing catalog price rules not being applied to final price and totals not getting calculated correctly when creating orders from Magento admin, all this under specific and hard to reproduce circumstances. Honestly, this is probably the ugliest bug I’ve ever seen in my coding career, largely due to fact that client’s bug report is usually that catalog price rules prices revert when creating orders from Magento admin, but only sometimes and without any pattern.

Unlucky amongst you probably know how easy it is to get caught inside infinite loop caused by ‘trigger_recollect’ functionality of Magento quote, while coding quote address total models. It’s simple as loading Mage_Sales_Model_Quote inside quote address total model, something that’s problematic due to Mage_Sales_Model_Quote::collectTotals() being fired on Mage_Sales_Model_Quote::_afterLoad() when trigger_recollect is set, causing infinite loop.

Almost each Magento store has header links like: My AccountMy WhishlistMy CartCheckoutLog In. Each header link is located in separate XML file.

Open the Magento installation directory on your server then go to “app/design/frontend/default/theme###/layout” folder. Most of the required files are located here.
