  1. How to Exclude Some Image Tags from WebP Conversion

    Optimizing images is one of the first steps to website performance improvement. The best way to do that is to convert images to the modern WebP format with the Magento 2 WebP Images extension. WebP images are smaller in size from traditional .png and .jpg formats and that makes them load faster.

    However, sometimes there might be images you want to exclude from the WebP conversion.

    You have converted images to WebP format manually or just want some <img> tags to be ignored during WebP conversion? Please, add the data-webpconverted="1" attribute to the <img> tag as in the example. 


    <img src="image.jpg" />     —>    <img src="image.jpg" data-webpconverted="1" />

    Thus, once y

    In case you use one of the Amasty extensions, e.g. Amasty Layered navigation, you may face the issue of the broken blog featured images after the upload.

  5. Debugging PHP Infinite loop in Magento 2

    There are situations in Magento 2 when page keeps loading and then you get 500 fatal error, memory limit, or timeout error. This is an infinite loop in the PHP code, when the same code is executed over and over again. It is related to some core Magento issues or, most likely, third party extension.

    To debug an infinite loop and find the loop entrance, please follow the steps below:

    1. Open the app/bootstrap.php file and add this code right after PHP open tag <?php in the next line

    $_SERVER['MAGE_PROFILER'] = 'html';

    2. Open the vendor/magento/framework/Profiler.php file and add this code to the beginning of "public static function start($timerName, array $tags = null)" function, e.g.

    As a result, you will get this nice HTML debug-backtrace:

  9. Magefan Login as Customer Extension Now Is a Part of Magento 2.4.0 Core

    Hello, Magento fans!

    Since Magento is our favorite eCommerce platform and we all eagerly waited for Magento 2.4.0 we are happy to bring you the great news.

    In the fall of 2019, we received a request from Adobe Systems Incorporated, which owns the Magento platform, to include our Login as Customer module for Magento 2 in the core of their system. Of course, we couldn't refuse, because Magefan is Magento fans.

    Login as Customer functional is a valuable contribution to any Magento 2 store. It did a great impact on Magento Community and that was why Magento got interested in adding it to the Magento 2.4.0 functional. 

    Instead of writing new code from scratch Magento contacted us and asked about the integration which we definitely supported.

    We transferred copyright for the "Login as Customer" extension to Adobe, and in the early 2020 we worked with the Magento Community Engineering Team on integrating our module into the Magento core. There were made code improvements and added some new features.
