Magento Configuration Search

I’m proud to announce my first Magento Connect Extension, System Configuration Search, distributed free through the Magento Connect marketplace.

Ecommerce is a complicated business, and the hundreds of options available to a store owner/developer is daunting. A stock Magento store comes with hundreds of different configuration options. Add a few custom extensions to the mix and you can be swimming in a sea of confusion.

System Configuration Search lets you quickly search your entire configuration hierarchy for options. This lets a user quickly zero in on what they’re looking for without having to ask anyone what they were talking about. Checkout the quick screencast to see how it works.

Bug reports and suggestions for improvements are more than welcome. Where Commerce Bug is a commercial product that I have a road map for, this new extension is more an experiment and I’d love to see what ideas other people might have.

Like this extension? Then you’ll love Commerce Bug, the must have debugging extension for anyone using Magento. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, Commerce Bug will save you and your team hours everyday. Grab a copy and start working with Magento instead of against it.
