Q&A

IP?

Hello, great extension so far. How can I enable this on frontend just for my IP? I tried by setting my IP in backend Advanced > Developer > Developer Client Restriction > Allowed IPs, but doesn't seem to affect it. Cleared the caches and all.
Asked by: bv02peu
Thanks for the detailed answer, I did manage to find the ison function on my own and I've changed to my needs. I'm using a $_GET variable and I can simply add the parameter to the URL to each page that I need to see the toolbar. I'm using it this way because I have a dynamic IP and changing that file every time my IP changes is not very pleasant. My ip belongs to a variety of classes too, so I can't use a restriction based on IP classes. Either way, nice extension, congrats for it. But keep working on it, I'm sure you can make it even better and more awesome. You should study your competition.

Enable in admin panel ?

Hi Alan, how do I enable the debug option in admin panel ?
Asked by: hashid
The extension will be enabled automatically in the admin panel. If it's not showing, check the values at System -> Configuration -> Commerce Bug to make sure it's set to display. Also, make sure no one created any custom access class/Ison rules (see the manual that ships with Commerce Bug for more information on that)

Cannot access Magento admin when plugin is active.

Hello. Extension seems to work as described with one side effect: I cannot access my Magento admin area when the plug is active. I am forced to rename the *_Commercebug.xml file to regain access. Any thoughts here? Otherwise, seems to be a great extension! I'm sure it will save me a lot of time! Magento ver. 1.7.0.2
Asked by: ndenitto
We're still tracking down the root cause of this bug. Fortunately, there's a quick fix. Just delete you browser cookie(s) for the Magento domain in question, and you'll be able to log in again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny This is the type of tool that I could envision being packaged with Magento. It's very useful for plugin or theme development and couldn't imagine not using it now that I have it!

Rated out of 5 by from I wish I knew about this product earlier. It solved my problem in less than an hour. (installation and finding the code I was looking for.) I strongly recommend this product. Do not use endless text search to find the code you need to modify!

Rated out of 5 by from I just upgraded to Commerce Bug 2 which is even better than the already awesome Commerce Bug 1. Using Commerce Bug along with Google Chrome browser's Inspect Element feature really speeds up development.

Rated out of 5 by from Excellent extension, very useful. I pushed for my company to buy licenses for our entire development team after using Alan Storm's blog extensively for research over the last few months. Alan is extremely helpful and responds very quickly to any questions we have.

Rated out of 5 by from This extension is completely useful and recommend any developer that I work with purchase it. I just had an issue with this extension not working 1.12, and Alan immediately jumped on my sever and got the thing working, explaining to me what the problem was and solving it. I'm also a big fan of No Frills Layout and have literally forced many developers to read the book. Completely satisfied.

Rated out of 5 by from Thanks, extremely helpful extension. A very minor feature request: Please add a Css class/id to the debugger container Html.

Rated out of 5 by from Wow - until using this extension I was totally lost in Magento land. Can't say I love developing for it still, but at least now I actually get stuff done !
Date published: 2012-04-05
Rated out of 5 by from really brilliant extension - and Alan's ebook No Frills Magento Layout, is the best book I've read about Magento - and being as I've a subscription to the Safari Bookshelf that's pretty much all of them!!!
