Q&A

Is there a shortcut key to open the Launcher?

Hey guys, excellent and clever plugin! I was just wondering, like Spotlight Search on a Mac, is there a shortcut we can use when in the Magento backend to quickly bring up the Launcher?
Asked by: tdmalone
Thank you very much! I didn't even realise there was a config page. For others coming across this and wanting to change the shortcut, this will be helpful: http://www.cambiaresearch.com/articles/15/javascript-char-codes-key-codes On the Launcher config page, 17 in the first box and 32 in the second gives you Ctrl+space - i.e. similar to Mac spotlight. Nice!

Why can't my ACL limited user access the Product/Order search Feature?

When I log in as my "web user" with limited permissions, the Launcher's search features stop working. If I search for a known product, an empty list is returned. How can I fix this?
Asked by: alanstorm
The product and order search features of the Pulse Storm Launcher make use of the existing Magento "Global Search" feature. If your user account does not have permission for this ACL permission, you will not be able to use the search features. To enable this permission, go to > System -> Permissions -> Roles and edit your "web user"'s role. Then, select the Role Resources tab and choose the "Global Search" permission from the tree view. Global Search is a top level permission. Finally, click the "Save Role" button.

Why does my Magento Installation stop working when I install the Pulse Storm Launcher on CE v1.9?

There's a lot of custom code in my Magento system and I don't know if there's any interference. I first encountered the error once I logged out and logged back in. I installed the extension via Magento Connect. The error is omnipresent it shows up as soon as I log into my Magento System. I'm very grateful for the help and assistance I'm receiving here. Thank You
