My Magento Products are Not Visible at Front-End. What to Do?

Right after you have installed Magento, you probably can’t wait to bring your ideas into life and start filling your shop with new Magento products, dreaming about selling for whole world and earning your first million. You are anxious to begin, so who will spend valuable time on reading instructions, right?

However, after adding a few products manually or performing your first Magento product import you might notice that new entities are not visible at store front. You check your back-end and goods are there, so the first thing you do is refresh your web page a few times and… nothing. Perhaps you ask around some tech-experts or read a few forum or blog posts online and try flushing Magento cache and re-index. Still nothing.

When adding or editing product in Magento manually, it is quite good at letting you know that you have skipped some required information. Obligatory fields are marked with asterisk and products won’t be saved until you fill in all of them. Though, when you add products via import procedure, you should check a few things before trying to delve deeper:

  • Magento stock availability (in file ‘is_in_stock’ field) – in case you have there 1 value, it denotes that the product is in stock and 0 stands for out of stock.
  • Stock quantity – it needs to be more than 0 or other value (in case you have enabled the option “Minimum Qty for item’s status to be out of stock”).
  • Product status field should be set to “Enabled”. In case there you have value for disabled, your products won’t be displayed at the front-end.
  • Visibility should be ‘Catalog’ (for product to be shown) or ‘Catalog, Search’ (for Magento products to be shown and could be found via search).
  • Categories field should not be left empty, there should be indicated either category or category path (in case the entity should be located to definite subcategory). Also make sure that category to which you assign products is positioned under Root category, otherwise neither category, nor products belonging to it will be reflected at clients’ side. The category also should be active.
  • Make sure you implement changes in assigned Magento website/store view (under Websites tab) or to make sure that all the changes are applied to correct store view, it is better to do alterations in default store view and for other store views to have option “Use default” set.

Managing Magento is Pretty Much Like Keeping a Pet. How to Take Care About It?

If you are the owner of Magento store, managing it becomes indispensable part of your day and sometimes even night. It is like keeping the pet – you know that each day you need to spend some time on nourishment, medical attention, safety and other things. The resemblance of your store to animal you are keeping at home also proves the fact, that they both will not survive without your constant attention and care.

Initially, when you have just gotten new furry friend it is fun and you are really excited. The same thing is with online store. You have just made up and running and everything is new and thrilling for you: each new customer and order, every new products you get from supplier.

However, fun part only begins here. Either having an animal, or opening online store, you should understand that it is a great responsibility. From now on you have to be ready for everything day’n’night – unexpected problems, tasks to be handled, measures that should be taken.

We want you to make sure that you can provide best care possible and compiled for you a list of tasks you need to be ready to cope with.

Like pet that needs your continuous care, your Magento catalog requires your permanent attention as well. When your products are selling like sand papers (hopefully this is exactly such a situation and you have got tons of orders every day), sooner or later the number of goods you have in stock will be shrinking. Without keeping an eye of your inventory and in-time renewal of products quantity, very soon your goods will be unavailable for purchase for interested clients.

Clean up after your pet = Rebuild Magento index and flush cache

A well-known fact, but very often store owners forget about it – after each significant change you need to rebuild your system’s indices. This way you will ensure that everything is saved in complex Magento hierarchy correctly and the changes are displayed at the store front.

Make sure it has enough room = Add more server resources

To ensure the best Magento performance and avoid ‘time-out’ and ‘out-of-memory’ issues you have to consider adding some server resources, since Magento webshop does require lots of them.

Buy it toys = Improve store’s performance and extend functionality with extensions

Magento is powerful, but you can consider some extensions to make your Magento stores do even more. Different modules and solutions help streamline operations and make business easier.

Take pet to vet regularly = Diagnose your Magento to make sure everything is running properly

If you do not know about the problem it doesn’t mean that it is not there. Thus, regular store check-ups can help you avoid unpleasant surprises in the future and be sure that your Magento functions as it should.

How you are familiar with troubleshooting tips that might come at hand when keeping a pet or establishing new Magento store. In any case, if something comes up, it should be your first priority.

The love of a pet is everlasting. When dealing with online business, you should properly care about your online shop and it will return to you a hundredfold.

Let it grow healthy and delight your eyes!
