Checking the shipping costs on all of our orders of the past few week

Hi All, I am a Magento noob. We have had a big sale with Affiliates through Rakuten and I need to check that we haven’t applied the discount to the shipping and hence overpaying our affiliates. When I export the data from orders as a CSV it doesn’t include the field for shipping costs. Is there a way that I can add this field to the report?

Currently, I am manually clicking through thousands of orders to see if we charged shipping or not.

What is your M2 local dev environment?

I’ve been using MAMP Pro which is not working out to well. I than set up a vagrant instance with similar result, 20+ sec page loads or timing out, just everything very slow.

I’m on a 2016 MBP 16gb and use to developing WP sites utilizing a NPM+Gulp+BrowserSync workflow and 1-2s pageloads on a PHP file update, but this is getting ridiculous. What works for you guys? Any insight is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Order Archiving in Magento 2.3 … Other than moving the row from sales_flat_order_grid to magento_sales_flat_order_grid_archive … What else happens?

Is it really just as simple as “goes from one table to the other”? Is there any loss of data whatsoever? We’re about to do it for 300,000 orders.

Also, have you seen much performance difference after doing this? I’ve warned our team that a better idea is to optimize the columns on the Order Maintenance page, and we’ll do that eventually, but I am worried that after we do this, NOTHING will change…

What are some specific things to avoid when writing a theme, to ensure maximum performance?

Lots of threads recently have been shitting on Magento 2’s performance and in each of the threads there are comments saying that a badly-written theme by shitty developers can make or break a website.

But none of the comments actually go into detail about what makes a bad theme so bad, and I’ve not seen a guide about how to write a good, performant theme.

So what are some mistakes which these “bad developers” make which affect performance so much? And how can a bad developer turn into a good developer?

TL;DR How make Magento 2 go fast?

Access Compat Errors

I know that these errors in the error logs is showing that the local.xml cannot be accessed and can be safely ignored.

The problem is that it is checking every second, so I was wondering if this was common or if I have something configured wrong. I am trying to clean up this project I took over from another admin and some of this is new to me.

Can this self check be dialed back to check less frequently?

Need some help with JavaScript initialization in Magento 2

Hi, I’m trying to replace the standard menu in topmenu.phtml with a custom dropdown-menu. Therefore my plan was to use the dropdown-widget.

I put the HTML markup in topmenu.phtml which works fine but I don’t get the Javascript part. There is the documentation on how to initialize Javascript but I’m completely lost on this. How would I get the dropdown working? Putting


just in <script> tags does not work, obviously.

Would be very nice if someone could help me out. Thank you very much.

Magento SUPEE-11314… nah, just kidding! You’re going to want SUPEE-11314-v2.

Just in case anyone missed it, if you installed SUPEE-11314, apparently, you’re going to want to revert and install v2 of this patch.

The original patch was released April 28th, and the new version was published on May 12th.

My Magento 2.3 experience. Is there any hope?


I work for a company that wanted to upgrade our eCommerce platform from opencart to magento because of all the community support for the platform. Because none of us had much experience with magento we hired a local company to setup the new magento website for us.

After about 3 months we got the site and everything looked good so we imported our product and category structure which has around 30k products and around 200 attributes and about 50 categories. After this import the site crawled to a stop. Category pages take 40+ seconds to load and product pages can take up to 120 seconds.

We went back to the developers which told us we just needed to put the site in production mode and turn on varnish cache. With those changes a cached page will load just fine however with so many products and such long load times it seems impossible to keep the whole site cached without overloading my server with page requests.

Our original developers are completely unwilling to help us with this problem and we have hired 2 other Magento 2 “experts” who were able to make some progress but have come to the conclusion that only a complete rewrite of the theme will get us to where we want to be.

I guess posting here is just a kind of last ditch effort to see if anyone knows of somewhere I can go for help with this problem. I have already tried everything that is suggested in probably every magento 2 speed optimization blog I could find. I have tried flat product tables, redis cache, memcache among many other site configuration changes to try and optimize the speed. Also I am on a computer with 16 gigs of ram and 500 gig ssd with 8 cores.

Sorry for the long post and thank you for any suggestions.
