Magento blank sales order view page after SUPEE 7405 patch

If you applied the SUPEE 7405 patch or upgraded to Magento 1.9.2.3 and suddenly you found out that your sales order pages are blank, then here’s a quick fix. Just copy app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Helper/Sales.php to app/code/local/Mage/Adminhtml/Helper/Sales.php, then open it. Find $links = []; then replace it with $links = array(); then save it.

Clear your cache and check your sales order view page. It’s now fixed. This is currently a bug for PHP 5.4 and below, so another fix is just upgrade your PHP version to 5.4 and above to resolve this issue fast.

Paypal Online Dashboard Revamped this 2016

After logging in to Paypal today, I was surprised with the new dashboard design. It now looks modern, but slightly confusing as I’m using to the old design. It’s basically really neat and ergonomic. I somewhat remember the transition from Magento 1.9 to Magento 2.0 admin UI. Now, I just need to get used to it. I’m still not very familiar with the new user interface, as you know, it’s really new. Just today! I logged in yesterday, and I can clearly remember that they are still using the old UI yesterday. But now, it’s entirely new! Check it out in my screenshot below.

There’s a lot to like about the new design. One thing I like is that they put all your personal settings in one page. In the old version of the dashboard, you need to hover the profile link to see all the stuff that you can edit under your profile, like e-mail, bank account, credit card, and street address.

Now you just need to click on the “Gear” sign, which obviously represents your account settings. After clicking it, you’ll see all your personal details in one place. Now you can add and edit what you need to add and edit. I think there are more features in the new dashboard that I have yet to find out.

How about you? Do you love the new Paypal dashboard UI?

Customers Doing Online Shopping

Shopping online
When you own an online business or offer customers a way to shop for items that you sell through an online portal, you need to have a way for customers to store the items they want. An online shopping cart is an option with several benefits for you as the owner and the customer. Companies like SecureNetShop.com can help with establishing the cart and offer support for maintaining the software.

One of the benefits is that you can save on the expenses for your business. You won’t have to purchase as many supplies for your store as customers can easily complete their shopping by going to a website. There usually aren’t any annual fees if you find the right company that can help you set up your cart system. Multiple payment options can be offered. These include debit cards, credit cards and PayPal. Some checks can also be accepted as payment as long as proper information is included. This gives customers an easy way to pay for the items that they want, just like they would in a physical store.

WordPress theme optimized for Apple Watch

While tinkering with my Apple Watch and browsing the web using my Apple Watch, I checked my blog if it displays handsomely in an Apple Watch, but sadly it didn’t. Now I’ve been searching for a WordPress theme that is so responsive, it will still display beautifully in an Apple Watch.

After minutes of searching, I just found out that there is not WP theme that is optimized for a 1-inch screen! It’s like, what the hell, Apple watch was released last year but still, nobody made a got damn theme for WordPress that displays responsively in very small screens.

If you Google it now, you can’t find what you’re looking for. Wonder why? Because the so-called experts are saying that the Apple Watch is not meant for browsing, it’s just meant for all the other things that you can do with your smartphone, except browsing. It’s like, what the, why? What the **** are they thinking? They invented a watch with a browser that is not meant for browsing? Anyway, it doesn’t have a browser by default, but you can install a browser.

50MBPS in the Philippines is now more affordable

skybroadband-nowcheaper.jpg

If you haven’t heard the news yet, Sky Broadband lowered down their price from around 10k per month, to 2,899/month for their 50MBPS Ultra High Speed Internet. That is actually incredibly cheap.

Their 200mbps and 100mbps plans are no longer featured in their website, but I guess it’s still available. They only have 3 plans now, the 3MBPS plan for 999/month, 16MBPS plan for 1,999/months and 50mbps for only 2,899/month.

If I remember it right, their 200MBPS plan costs around 35k, and 100MBPS around half that price. So before this huge price drop, their 50MBPS plan was around 9k – 10k/month. I just can’t remember the exact price.

They still do offer a consumable plan of 10MBPS for 1,299.00. But I assume they will be discontinuing it soon as they are now offering a much better 16MBPS for 1,999.00 and its bandwidth is unlimited.

There are no news yet whether they will still continue to offer the Consumable plans or other internet plans that is not including in the current 3 plans they are offering right now in the near future.

UPDATE: Due to my curiousity, I checked mysky.com.ph via wayback machine, I found the old prices!

3MBPS = 999/month
10MBPS – 3999/month
16MBPS = 4999/month
24MBPS = 6499/month
55MBPS = 9499/month
200MBPS = 34999/month
112MBPS = 19999/month

So now, it’s dead cheap. They just reduced the price of 50MBPS around 60%! Thank you Sky Broadband!

The Madness Begins

This year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness begins! The Bitcoin fever is also high. Investors are speculating when is the perfect time to pump and dump, or just continue pumping. On the other hand, e-commerce sites are preparing for next week’s war, the war of deals and offers.

Black Friday just started here in the US, and Cyber Monday will follow on. I just want to share what’s new and what’s not old. I’m drunk right now, but I will be sober later. I have nothing else to write. I’m mad, and this is madness. Oh I can’t think clearly. My head is blurry. Or my mind. I think my mind is blurry, not my head. But my head is the one holding my mind, and my mind is inside my head. So if my mind is blurry, my head is blurry is well. But if my mind is not that blurry, then my head is not the blurry as well.

This weekend, I’ll just spend my time at home, watching the Bitcoin spikes and strikes. Let’s see what will happen before Cyber Monday and after. I’m pretty sure it will go up, way beyond $1000, then will suddenly drop. Let’s see what happens next.B
