I’m new to Magento and have a question for developers.

What are the essential Magento extensions you install on all your stores?

Bonus question: what’s the best server setup to make magento run fast?

Magento LightSpeed Module

In terms of increasing performance, Litespeed is significantly faster than Apache (not to be confused with TinyBrick’s LightSpeed) and cache should be enabled. TinyBrick offer a range of performance increasing modules.

I recommend looking to see what we have to offer at the Extendware extension store. We build high quality extensions. Every store needs performance extensions, such as our Site Optimizer. As for other things, that depends entirely on your goals, the products your sell, and your individual business.

Hi there,

I\’m quite new on magento, but know that there are extensions available on magento connect and they have been proven very useful.

I\’m currently trying to locate the google content api extension so I can sync my products with google base, however the extension key no longer works.

Can someone help me to locate the correct key for this please? As it would be a real saver for us… as everything has been deleted when we tried and sync them last week, without noticing that a new extension needs to be installed....

Please help.... we will be so grateful!!

Thanks.

Sheena

What do you mean the key does not work? Did you select the correct version of Magento Connect?

It’s a good question, but probably not the best place for asking :) You get tens of links from the extension developers, but they just advertize their paid addons.  It’s always worth to install Fooman’s speedster (free module) and meta-robots (free addon). The rest depends on what you really need.

Its not necessary to install any third party extension magento to work. Magento itself work very well. Its depend on your needs and magento version to select third party extensions. You can find all the extension(free and paid) in magento connect (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/) or you yourself can develop extensions according to your requirements.(Developers may feel hard in coding, but magento is very flexible to extend its functionality)

Auto Review Reminder is a must for all Magento Stores, as it brings more reviews to the store products, by automatically sending a reminder mail to the customers; and as we know, More Reviews means More Sales!

I will also recommend Low Stock Report as it automatically sends stock report (of products with low quantities) to Admin & Vendor; the report can be very important to make a uniformed decision on stocking the products and continuing the sales.
