Scenario
I was creating a module. I already had one Grid displayed in admin. The Grid was being displayed by a Block class, for example: MyNamespace_MyModule_Block_Adminhtml_MyModule
Now, I had to display another Grid using a new Block class. Let’s say, I created a new Block class: MyNamespace_MyModule_Block_Adminhtml_MyNewGrid
I just copied code from MyNamespace_MyModule_Block_Adminhtml_MyModule and copied it to MyNamespace_MyModule_Block_Adminhtml_MyNewGrid class.

Backing up browser means getting backup of all the browsing history, bookmarks, extensions installed, etc.
Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. I love Google Chrome.

Here is a quick code to get the admin user’s data (id, name, username, email, password, etc).
By admin user, I mean the users that login through the admin panel and those who have access to the admin panel of Magento. The users can be administrator, or with some specific roles.

$userArray = Mage::getSingleton(‘admin/session’)->getData();

From the past records of World Cup Cricket, we find that the hosting team has never won the World Cup.
In 1996, the World Cup was hosted jointly by India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The final match was played in Pakistan. And, Sri Lanka had won the World Cup.

Problem:
I transfered my Magento site files from one computer to another. I imported the database. Now, when I try to login to admin (when I go to admin login url), it shows 404 Not Found Error page. The same error is also displayed in the module’s page that are installed in site.
However, the frontend part is working fine. There is no such error in browsing categories and pages in frontend.

Javascript, jQuery, Magento »

By default, Magento contains and uses the Prototype javascript library. You can also integrate the other most popular javascript library ‘jQuery‘ in your Magento site.
While integrating jQuery in Magento, you might get some javascript conflict and errors as you will be using two javascript libraries (prototype and jQuery) at a time. This is caused because prototype also uses ‘$‘ as a function or variable name, just as jQuery does.
