Additional input field in order form


Our client wants an additional (not obligatory) input field in the order form. Client’s customers would insert their company’s internal order number for their evidence. The number should then be written on the Magento’s invoice that is sent to the customer. The filed should be on the order page, where customers put their name, address, VAT, etc.

Are there any good existing modules that would do the job? Or is there another way to insert the input field?

I’m quite new to the Magento 2 so any help would be much appreciated.

Broken Slider?

I updated my (boss’s) website banner slider in Magento 2 today. I replaced existing images (fully working banner/slider) with lower-res images of the same dimensions. Now, only one image is loading, and it is not sliding through all of the images, nor showing arrows or pagination.

I can flush the cache as a common fix. I am worried about doing that because I do not have direct access to the code/files/server that the site is hosted on if something were to bug when I flush it. Is that a reasonable worry, or should I go ahead and flush it regardless? Flush the entire cache or just a specific cache type?

Trying to Grow our Magento Team – Any Tips on Where to Look?

Hello Everyone,

I work with a development agency and we’re working on growing our Magento team to handle a larger workload. We’ve had some success using the usual recruiting sources like Indeed, but we’d like to start finding more options to find more people. I understand that there’s not one place to go to find hundreds of freelance Magento devs just waiting for an opportunity, but any suggestions about places Magento devs look for work that we might not have considered would be amazing. Even finding a few more quality candidates would be worth the work of tapping into more communities we may have missed.

How did you all find your last/current Magento job?

Migrating to Magento 2: Is it Worth a Shot?

Should I migrate to Magento 2? It is one of the most common questions asked by enterprises with e-commerce sites built on Magento. Besides this, many people want to know if it is necessary to migrate from Magento 1 to 2.

If you are thinking about Magento 2 migration, you are on the right page. Before you hire a dedicated Magento developer. Let us explore the reasons why it is worth migrating to Magento 2.

  • Top reasons why Magento 2 migration is worth

Magento is a leading e-commerce platform that helps developers to build customized and large-scale online stores. In recent times, we have seen several brands migrate to Magento 2. It is time to know why.

  • Magento 1 support is dead and gone. It means the Magento team has discontinued the support for Magento 1 platforms. It is one of the primary reasons brands are migrating to Magento 2. Hence, every enterprise that uses Magento 1 to migrate 2 eventually. It is because they cannot get the necessary support.
  • As compared to Magento 1, the Magento 2 is faster in terms of page loading speed.
  • Also, Magento 2 ensures a quick checkout speed by 38% than Magento 1.
  • With Magento 2, you can leverage powerful security features, along with new patches.
  • Do you know Magento 2 can manage 117% more orders per hour in comparison to Magento 1? In addition to this, it has a capacity of 2.1 million more page views.

Now, you know why most businesses are switching from Magento 1 to 2. No doubt, it comes as a necessity. But we cannot disregard the excellent features to boost search results, conversion rate, and sales. The best thing is migrating from Magento 1 to 2 is a pretty simple process.

Store themes broken

In trying to remove and re-register a theme, I’ve apparently broken something.

When trying to re-apply the theme, I’m getting an error.

Something went wrong while saving this configuration: Required parameter ‘theme_dir’ was not passed

See screenshot:

Also, it doesn’t seem to matter what theme I select, they all are giving the error.

Changing product page.

I’m a novice when it comes to Magento layout files.

I am trying to customize a theme.

I have created a catalog_product_view.xml file in app/design/frontend/Local/custom_theme_name/Magento_Catalog/layout folder.

my .xml file looks like this:

<?xml version=”1.0″?>
<page *layout*=”1column” *xmlns*:*xsi*=”” *xsi*:*noNamespaceSchemaLocation*=”urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd”>

<move *element*=”” *destination*=”” *before*=””/>

However, I don’t see any changes on the group product page. Even after clearing the cache.

Any advice?

Also, I need a good reference on how to construct these layout files.

At present, my objective is to remove the description tab and move the description content under the product title (near the top of the page)

Guest “NOT LOGGED IN” customer order from admin/backend?

I know it’s possible from the frontend Magento 2 checkout for a customer to checkout as a guest/not logged in and not have to create an account, but how can we facilitate this same thing (guest checkout) from the backend/admin?

If we take an order over the phone and place it from within the backend, we’re forced to create an account on our site for that customer. Some customers don’t want an account; they want to checkout as guests even if ordering through us over the phone.

Also, we use the Cart2Quote extension for Magento 2, and it forces us to create a customer account to send a customer a quote. We’d also like to avoid having to create an account for a customer to be able to send them a quote. The concern here is that we’re making all these accounts for customers and either having to remember to ask for their consent to do so.

Any extensions or custom dev solutions out there to address this?

Magento 2 Devs

So, I’m sure this question is as common as dirt, but where on earth do I find a competent Magento developer? I do have an overseas developer that knows just enough to get things done. It’s painful.

Long story short; started on Magento 1 and loved it. Moved to Magento 2, and I HATE it. However, nothing else comes close to the functionality. WordPress has been excruciating for the products we sell (configurable with a lot of math).

The cost to maintain M2 is obscene. E.g. currently paying $500/month for ShipperHQ, and their support is horrendous. Getting “carrier with such method not found”, etc. Tried to get an agency to audit the stack and site code, as well as speed optimization, but they estimated $10k-$12k just to start.

#Idea: Why don’t some of you devs make a dedicated shipping extension for $150/month? It seems like a huge opportunity waiting to be seized upon. Not sure that’s enough, but it’s worth a look. Also, said extension must be hosted locally. ShippedHQ is a nice idea, but oh boy, I would never go that route again.

Site is up and running……..sigh. Any feedback or input is appreciated.

I know this post is a rambling wreck.
