Hi Richard,

Tried using your plugin, however some strange behaviour followed.

I have wordpress set up as the main part of my site ( in the root directory ) and magento in a sub folder powering just the ecommerce side. I wanted to use this plugin to pull the products of one category onto the homepage of my wordpress site.

Installing the plugin gave me a white screen, setting the errors to show all in php.ini also provided a white screen which was rather odd. However the plugin worked perfectly once I’d visited my store first then went back to the homepage. Which implies to me that it seems to have trouble creating a new session. I made sure that:


Was placed at the top of the php template file before the header also, to the same results. Any chance you could share your thoughts on how we could fix this?

Hello Ryan,

Is it possible to see the file and how you implemented it? Your code in the post is incomplete or has been truncated. What is your Magento and WordPress version?

Hi Richard, sorry wasn’t anticipating such a swift reply 🙂

The code that was cut off there was

Mage::getSingleton('core/session', array('name' => 'frontend'));

The path to mage.php is correct and declared so in the admin, so its rather odd. I’m not too familiar with Magento’s methods, I assume thats trying to create a session?

I tried getting errors to display in my php.ini file and it still returned a blank screen, which is rather unhelpful for the both of us I’d imagine 🙁

Add at the top of your script the code below:


Is it possible to see the file where the error occurs?

Have you installed mage enabler on wordpress with the builder theme? I seem to be having issues. I have got the mage.php as accessible in wordpress, but I can’t seem to add any magento blocks or products.

Not yet, but it should work with any template. What have you done so far?
