In the Manage Categories area of the catalog management section I can click on a category in the left column and then click a “Category Products” tab in the right column and get a list of products.
What is the point of this page?
There is an unlabeled select list on the left side with the options ANY/YES/NO I have no idea what it is supposed to do. I can check a checkbox next to each product listing, but again, what function does this accomplish?
I cannot click on each product to be taken to the product information/edit page (that is a usability snafu there), I see the ability to search through the product list I guess but without being able to access product details am I supposed to write down with pen and paper the information I’m looking for when I find it?
This is in IE of course, in FF I can’t even get to that page. Notice in the attached screenshot there should be a category listing in the left column, instead all I get is a horizontal scroll bar.
Now… CATALOG>MANAGE PRODUCTS
I get a full listing of 104 default products. Not arranged by categories or anything, just listed raw. Lets say I want to delete a product, and why not? There are 104 products I don’t sell, why not delete them?
So… every other cart program I’ve ever used has had buttons directly on product listing screens to turn a product on/off (hide from view or make available) and of course to delete it. No such luck here.
So I click on a product… whoops, get an error:
Page of 1 | View 20 30 50 100 200 per page| Total 0 records found
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8192 bytes) in /home/cm/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Widget/Grid/Column/Renderer/Number.php on line 1
How much memory is this software sucking down?
Also, I’m not sure if its my system or your coding, but IE 7 keeps crashing for me all day when trying to view the install.
