Anyone in Perth interested in getting together and discussing, sharing info on Magento?

And are there any Magento specialists in Perth?

Hi Wingz,

I don’t believe there are any Magento specialists in Perth or anywhere else in WA for that matter.

I’ve been considering becoming an official Partner but I’ve got a couple of months worth of (non-Magento) work to complete before I have the time to consider it thoroughly.

[size=1][size=1]Hi,

I have been setting up a Magento site for about 12 months now but I’m definitely not an expert - but I know of a couple of Web designers in Perth who have set up their customers on it if you are interested.

Hi people,

I’m based in Perth (Mandurah) and I have been working on a Magento site for about 12 months now, but I am definitely not an expert. Interested in discussing aspects of your Magento experience if you are open to the idea.

There are a couple of web developers that I know of that have been creating Magento websites in Perth. I can give you there names if you are interested.

All the best,

Paul

Hi Paul,

It’s good to see someone local using Magento rather than the Zen-Cart/osCommerce norm.

My design work wasnt done locally tho.

My entry into the shopping cart experience started with Magento (CE). My site is active now but still ironing out a few problems like coupons not being accepted, etc.

Please feel free to check out the site and I welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.

Your sites comming along well…

We also had major problems with the coupon system and was getting quite frustrating.. In the end we figured out it was calculating correctly at checkout time, but not working when users were looking in their carts..

So to fix this we removed the coupon box from the cart and just left the one at checkout time..

Since then we havent had any issues at all with it.

I’ve been toying with this for ages; having been through a few iterations of Zen cart now, this continues to look daunting.

Every time I’ve loaded it up it has run into that dreaded screen of death fuelled by a page of unexplainable errors - either after adding a module or tweaking a theme.

Undaunted though, I press on, wondering today if I shouldn’t pass on the headaches to the headshed and just sign ujp for the ‘go’ hosted solution and be done with it.

The again, that would make sense, so I might press on. I need someone in Perth who understands the attributes thing, who can spare a cupplafew paid hours somewhere to go through it (I’m in Joondalup but can drive across the creek if necessary).

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

It’s great to see Magento is gaining some momentum in Perth! We’ve been developing Magento sites since day 1, back in 2008.

@Wingz, we’ve got a lot of experience with attributes.  A good example of that is the new TBE website live today: www.tbe.com.au

We’re also working on a cool extension for developers: Magento Advanced Developer Tools

Check out our Magento portfolio here: www.dhmedia.com.au/portfolio

We’re located in North Fremantle, next to the old Matilda Bay brewery. Just drop by!
