I have been on a hunt around the office to compile a few plugins that we all love at present. I quickly began to create quite a list!
I have listed a few plugins that we are currently loving at Creare:
Magento Connect: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/cueblocks-zoom.html
The Cueblocks Zoom replaces the standard Magento zoom facility on the product page – Much better!
Attribute Splash Pages by FishPig
Magento Connect: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/fishpig-s-attribute-splash-pages.html
We love it because… You can easily create landing pages for different attributes – whether it’s Brands, Sizes etc. The ‘Splash’ page has its own SEO-friendly URL as well as META data that you can change in the admin area. It has many customisable options as well, definitely worth a download! No more creating lot’s of categories and adding your products to twenty different categories!
Magento Connect: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/custom-menu.html
We love it because… This displays all levels of sub-categories, displays your menu in a neat and readable way (with as many or as little columns as you want), and you can even add a static block within each one!
Magento Connect: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/magento-easytabs.html
We love it because…It simply adds additional tabs to your product page alongside ‘additional information’ and ‘product description’. Nice and simple, which is why we love it.
Magento Connect: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/product-attachments-extension.html
We love it because…If you have any downloadble PDF’s that need adding to the product page, this adds a tab alongside ‘additional information’ and ‘product description’ called ‘Downloads’. You can also manage all your attachments in one place as well. Extremely useful.
Ajax Cart Pro
Magento Connect: http://ecommerce.aheadworks.com/magento-extensions/ajax-cart-pro.html
We love it because…It removes the annoying page reloads whenever you add products to your cart, and instead pops up with a nice feature asking if you would like to ‘continue shopping’ or ‘checkout’.
