Remove "Help Us to Keep Magento Healthy"

The footer message is really annoying. There is a footer function in admin to configure but the bug reporting message is coded into the files, not through the admin/backend. I don’t know why the developers make it so difficult to use. I realise it is a community edition yet should a free product should be an example of what the paid for item can do. It should shine and stand out from the crowd, be a call to upgrade, a beacon for others to set their standards, the start of a new relationship? Not a pain that makes you want to look elsewhere. However, I found the answer /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/page/html/footer.phtml Mine looks like this:
<div class=”footer-container”> <div class=”footer”> <div ?php echo $this->getChildHtml() ?> </div> </div>
Turn the cache back on Why not take this opportunity to change the footer copyright to something of your choice? This can be found in the system/configuration menu. Select design on the left then fill out the footer parts as required. NB: I am currently testing the modern theme so to remove the magento bugs message edit the footer  file in appdesignfrontenddefaultmoderntemplatepagehtml Simply remove the whole ‘p class bugs’ line.

Checkout Doesnt work on Magento 1.4.x

If you are using Magento 1.4.1 or just upgraded any of your old Magento sites to the latest Magento version, then you may be getting a very weird error on your checkout page, that the checkout CONTINUE button on payment screen, either on Authorize.net or PayPal , just doesnt work. The cause of this error is, Magento Team has introduced a new javascript file, which validates the credit card numbers, etc on the payment screen. So, if you are using the default theme, then you should not get this problem. But if you are using any custom theme, then you have to do some changes on your files. Few symptoms of this problem is, you will see such errors,

Please verify the card with the issuer bank

or

Unable to initialize Express Checkout review.

or

CONTINUE button on Credit Card Form doesnt work.

I will give the instructions in details below, how to fix this issue : Just add this js in your page.xml:
1
<action method="addJs"><script>lib/ccard.js</script></action>
Or clearly, find those lines with this and place these lines there . You can see, I have added the javascript call code here.

<block type="page/html_head" name="head" as="head">
<action method="addJs"><script>prototype/prototype.js</script></action>
<action method="addJs" ifconfig="dev/js/deprecation"><script>prototype/deprecation.js</script></action>
<action method="addJs"><script>lib/ccard.js</script></action>

<!-- Mage_Page -->
<block type="page/html" name="root" output="toHtml" template="page/print.phtml">
<block type="page/html_head" name="head" as="head">
<action method="addJs"><script>prototype/prototype.js</script></action>
<action method="addJs"><script>mage/translate.js</script></action>
<action method="addJs"><script>lib/ccard.js</script></action>
This must solve your complete problem . But in case, its still not working, then here is another fix, which I got from another member from a forum, I was experiencing the same issue: Nothing happens when you enter the credit card information and hit continue. After investigating with Firebug, it seemed that the method verifyCreditCard was not defined in validation.js. You can fix this by pasting the following javascript code into validation.js:

function validateCreditCard(s) {

j = w.length / 2;
k = Math.floor(j);
m = Math.ceil(j) - k;
c = 0;
for (i=0; i<k; i++) {
a = w.charAt(i*2+m) * 2;
c += a > 9 ? Math.floor(a/10 + a&#x10;) : a;
}
for (i=0; i<k+m; i++) c += w.charAt(i*2+1-m) * 1;
return (c&#x10; == 0);
}

Speed up Magento, product import, export and general via the database

If your Magento product imports and exports certainly aren’t as speedy as they used to be, it could be that the database table is just filling up with old records. There are a few to look at. dataflow_batch_import dataflow_batch_export log_url log_url_info log_visitor log_visitor_info The dataflow records can be quickly emptied in mysql or your database: truncate table dataflow_batch_import; truncate table dataflow_batch_export; Just run the query about to remove the old data.  This will not harm your site.  Just make sure that you are not uploading / importing / exporting products at the time.  For your logs – I would suggest you correctly set up log cleaning, this relies on the Magento Cron being correctly set up. 1) Log into your Magento admin and go to System > Configuration 2) Scroll down to Advanced > System 3) Select Log Cleaning 4) Change “save log, days” to a sensible figure, we use 30. 5) Enable log cleaning
