Prestashop 1.5 Multistore Customization on a Per-Store Basis

Prestashop 1.5 Multistore Customization on a Per-Store Basis

PrestaShop has done much work to ensure 1.4 version modules backward compatibility with 1.5 version. For example, module configuration is saved automatically based on a selected store. However, if your module contains a Prestashop tab, get ready for trouble.

The thing is, any class, responsible for tab display in a back-office, extended the AdminTab class before. But in PrestaShop 1.5 the approach has changed. There should be an inheritance from the AdminController class. On the other hand, it allowed reaching the separation of logic and presentation. We don’t see echo in the tab class at last!

BelVG continues tracing statistics within PrestaShop module categories. October has arrived and it means none other than a new portion of numbers to compare.

We remember how Presta addons were ambushed by a merciless cleanup back in May. After summer lull with all the slowness and vacations, permissive philosophy and lack of significant changes, September came as a bombshell: strict review policy got back on track. (more…)

Specifics of Software Product Testing

Specifics of Software Product Testing

There are differences between testing of software developed internally and third-party products. BelVG testers deal more often with our newly created Magento and Prestashop extensions than with customized products.

When you work for a client, you choose software testing methods depending on a number of hours paid. As a rule, there is enough time to do all positive testing and at least part of negative testing. Testing of own software can last for a long time which is something to be avoided.
