Installation


Before installing, please make sure you don’t have any other plugins that load in Magento – as it can create conflict. It is not a simple and easy way to use this plugin for detail installation visit the plugin’s homepage and get the complete instructions.

  1. Deactivate a Magento function that conflicts with one in WordPress.
    1. Navigate to ~/your-magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/functions.php
    2. Duplicate that file and place the new version in ~/your-magento/app/code/local/Mage/Core/functions.php – this file will now be used over the original, and will remain during Magento upgrades.
    3. Open the newly created file and browse to around line 90, where you will find this:
      function __()
      {
      return Mage::app()->getTranslator()->translate(func_get_args());
      }
    4. Replace the above line with:
      if(!function_exists('__')) {
      	function __()
      	{
      	return Mage::app()->getTranslator()->translate(func_get_args());
      	}
      }
    5. Upload the file to your server, and you are done!

Now that we have that out the way, let’s move on to the good stuff. You can either download the plugin manually from the WordPress Plugin Directory, or browse to Plugins » Add New in your WordPress admin area, then search for “Magento WordPress Integration”.

  1. Install the plugin as described above.
  2. Activate the plugin. There will be a message reminding you to remove the __() function from Magento. If you have already done so, please ignore the message.
  3. Click Mage/WP in your side bar.
  4. Under the Initial Setup tab, you will need to enter the details of your Magento store.
    1. The first field requires the path to your Magento installation – this needs to be on the same domain as your WordPress installation, and must be entered from the root (i.e. it will start with a forward slash – for example: /shop).
    2. The second field requires the name of Magento theme or package – For example, if you are using the modern theme, just entermodern. If you have installed a new package, then enter package-name/theme-name.
    3. The third field needs to be the store view code of the Magento store that you want to get blocks and data from. If you haven’t specifically renamed or made any new Magento store views, then just leave this as default.
  5. Once you have done the above, you can move on the other tabs. Each of these tabs contains usage instructions and should be pretty workable.

Installation Tips

Setting the cookie paths in Magento can help to solve any issues regarding customer session data between platforms – Go to your Magento admin area. Navigate to System » Configuration » Web » Session Cookie Management. Set the Cookie Path to / and the Cookie Domain to .yourdomain.com.

Usage

Usage instructions can be found in the settings under each tab, there is also a tab entitled Usage, which describes how to bring out the default Magento blocks.

The plugin basically provides little PHP snippets that you can the use in your WordPress theme to bring out the required blocks. For example:

<?php echo jk_mwi('welcome'); ?>

The above will echo the Magento welcome message.

WordPress into Magento

The other way to integrate is to get your WordPress content and variables onto your Magento pages. I’ve seen several different approaches to this, but I’m going to stick with my favorite way, because its the easiest, fastest and doesn’t require a ton of steps like some of the others do. Detail
