    Uninstaller doesn't uninstall 100%
    Review by Mlclmon 7/10/2015
    I had to uninstall it but I still have the 'DATE' option in the Sort-By of the toolbar showing up , because there is a file which updates the database like so : $installer = $this;$installer->startSetup();$prodEntityTypeId = $installer->getEntityTypeId('catalog_product');$installer->updateAttribute($prodEntityTypeId, 'created_at', 'frontend_label', 'Date');$installer->updateAttribute($prodEntityTypeId, 'created_at', 'used_for_sort_by', 1);$installer->endSetup(); And now I'm trying to un-do that and I am losing patience because I'm struggling with my SQL query to have things back to normal...

    Great addition without cluttering.
    Review by Janon 5/5/2015
    It is always hard to find reliable extensions. I became acquainted with MagModules and their extensions seem to be reliable and don't clutter up your system when installing them. They all appear clearly sorted in the configuration back-end. The only thing I would like to see changed (in order for this extension to receive a 5 star rating) is an easy way to add your own text that appears in the sorting box (e.g. changing "created at" or "datum" to "newest" or "nieuwste"). I can't seem to get it done through the locale CSV. Also props for their great support!

    Good Plugin Quick Fix to change Date created to Newest
    Review by KWAVEon 5/29/2014
    To change the word Date created to Newest or something else you need to log in to your phpmyadmin and do a search for Date created. Choose exact phrase search.There is one table with eav_attributes you can edit and change there.Fix this no body wants it to say Date created.(hide)

    No options
    Review by Cndittmaron 3/12/2014
    Sure, it can sort by date, but by default Magento 1.8 sorts by ASC and not DESC. There used to be ways to fix this but now there are not, meaning that when a customer sorts by date, they get the oldest products first. This actually makes this extension a downgrade as customers think they are getting newest first, we will never see new products in the listings. Customers think that it is just the same old products and that nothing has been added.Also, be prepared. Once this plugin is installed, it is there to stay. I installed via the connect manager, so it was all automated. After uninstalling, it is not in the list any longer, but it is stuck in the Admin menu and will not go away even after flushing cache, logging out and back in. It is no longer in the Magento Connect Manager list of installed plugins, and there is no way to manually remove the files as there is no list of what files are added.(hide)

    Works as intended.
    Review by Daveon 12/11/2013
    Sorts the products by creation date very well. Very lightweight and simple, and I am able to add translations in the csv. Also works on Enterprise, which is a huge plus for a free extension. Cheers

Why do we have License keys?
We are using license keys in our extensions for licensing and anti-copy purposes. The purchased extensions will only work in the Magento® installations that you have a license keys for. Each license key is linked to one domain; the license key will need to be used for the Magento® installation running on that specific domain. You can’t use the extension without a license key as you can only activate the extension using the license key we provided for you.

Every license key is valid for one single Magento® installation. A single Magento® installation is one instance of Magento®, including an unlimited amount of websites, stores and store views.

See this guide to read more about how to change or add a license key for the staging or production environment after when your moving from domain or when you need license keys for development domains.

License Key doesn't work
If you enter a license key that is not valid for the domain where Magento® is installed on, a red error message will be shown in the configuration stating that the license key is invalid and that the extension can't be enabled.
Already purchased a license key for this domain and it still doesn't work? Get in touch with us and tell us your order number (back from when you've purchased the extension) and what you see in the Server Name field just above the License Key field - we'll be happy to help.

Moving license to a new store/domain
Our extensions comes with a 6 months support and unlimited upgrade period by default. The license-key will stay active for a lifetime for that certain domain. When you move your store to a new domain, you also need a new license key which can be generated only once from your account dashboard under the my license keys tab. Please remind this is a one time feature so when you want to move the license key of your production store, just contact us. More about adding and editing a license key can be found here.

Do you need another license key for testing purposes?
It's possible to add 2 development/testing/staging keys after your purchase in your account dashboard under the My License Keys tab. You can only use this license keys for testing/stage/development environments as the keys asre clearly marked as testing environments. That is the case for example when using the subdomain "" or "" or "" - we just need to clearly see that the license key will be used for a testing environment and can't ever be used as a production store.

Moving to a production/live environment later?
When you want to implement the extension in your testing environment for now and move to another production environment later, just purchase the extension on the final production domain so you can add development/testing/staging keys in your account under the my license keys tab.
