The bin/magento setup:upgrade Command will Enable Non-Enabled modules · Issue #9516 · magento/magento2 Weird bit of behavior where the setup:upgrade command will automatically enable any module you’ve dropped into app/code. Small, but annoying bit of behavior if your run into it.astorm
I’m writing this down so I can remember it later – if you’re not deep into Magento service contracts apologies for the word soup. When Magento’s parsing doc block’s for parameter types, it’s only looking at interfaces – or possibly its only looking at the type it knows about. i.e. if you have [...]astorm
Over in my Patreon slack, a patron came to me with the following layout handle XML chunk. This block of XML would successfully remove the block named breadcrumbs, but it would not successfully remove the block named product_list_toolbar. This is one of those places where Magento’s lack of documentation and/or a cogent systems [...]astorm
