Prestashop and Virtual Try On

Over this day I wrote some new code to integrate Virtual Mirror with Prestashop 1.6. It was my first contact with Smarty, a php template engine. There was the requirement for a start_session() to get the php session id (not used by Prestashop itself). Afterwards it was an easy step to assign the session_id() to a global smarty variable, visible for every *.tpl.

After updating Magento from 1.6.1 up to 1.8.1 I had to state that the names of the categories aren’t translated once again, using the language switcher. I got always the ugly 404 error back while changing the store view. The fix was to install a free extension, especially made to fix this for Magento 1.8.0, written by Vinai Kopp, working for Magento 1.8.1 too.

It’s there:
I have installed modman too to get a clean base and the language switcher is now working fine 😉
