Over this dark day – we got our first big snow here – I have written some code to embed Virtual Mirror into Hikashop, an extension for Joomla. While I have written our own e-commerce system in past using Perl and while I’m very familiar with Magento since the last year this was a new experience.
The best documentation of Hikashop is the php code of Hikashop 😉
A special thanks goes to Yves-Marie Roth from in French – version 0.6.4 – is here since today. oakipa.com for his fast, careful and detailed review of the translation to French.
Virtual Mirror 0.6.4 was released today.

Over this day I have added mod_pagespeed including some fine tuning for Magento. After enabling it (lastest stable x86_84 for Fedora 17 / CentOS) I got a lot xml errors.
However I was able to fix all of these errors.
The convert_meta_tags filter of mod_pagespeed has changed the whole initial site definition to xml even it is still html because of this meta, added in past for the semantic web extension:
<html xmlns=”http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml” version=”XHTML+RDFa 1.0″ xml:lang=”en”>
Here are my settings for /etc/httpd/conf.d/pagespeed.conf:
# endur 14-10-12
# endur 14-10-12 – enhanced cache for images
Really important was the disabled convert_meta_tags filter to get mod_pagespeed working for me. The result is really impressive!
