Introducing the Blue Acorn Magento Blog

A little over one year ago – a little eCommerce platform was released that revolutionized how businesses approach eCommerce – it’s name, Magento Commerce.  We had been following the development of Magento (for short) for quite some time, and had deep interest in working with that platform extensively.  Shortly after that day, we wrote up a brief Magento review based on our first impressions, and became a Magento Silver Partner.  The popularity of Magento skyrocketed, and since that original posting, we’ve had many follow up questions regarding many of the valid points we raised way back when.

After some training, a number of implementations, and some deep custom work with the application, we felt the need to share some of our experiences with the community.  While the existing eCommerce Blog on our site was a great opportunity to do so, we decided that the audience of that blog wouldn’t be as interested in Magento-specific issues.  So we’ve dedicated this part of our site for the Blue Acorn Magento Commerce Blog – specifically for Magento tips, techniques, customizations, and common issues.  We hope that this blog serves to help others find solutions to puzzling questions with Magento (trust us, there’s a lot of them), provide guidance for those administering the application, and discuss technical issues that arise from its implementation and customization (and free code samples to boot!).

So subscribe to the Magento blog feed, and participate in the discussion!

Did you find a feasible work around for linking different pdf documents to different product pages. Our developer is currently looking for options. However, the best sounding options from the client side (me) may render any work-around ineffective with version updates.

any thoughts?

Hi Kevin,

I know this is an old topic, but separating eCommerce from Magento blog makes prefect sense. We had similar dilemma. In time, the developers focused mostly on Magento topic and that area of the site became the most popular in the very short time.
