I am adding in a new mass action for the sales order grid and when I am putting in the url for my action Magento cannot find my controller.





public function addActions($event)
    $block = $event->getBlock();
    if($block instanceof Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_Grid)
        $block->getMassactionBlock()->addItem('cpsync', array(
            'label' => 'Push Orders to CounterPoint',
            'url' => Mage::helper("adminhtml")->getUrl("frontendname/adminhtml_index/push/")

Whenever I try to use my mass action it sends me to a 404 redirect page with url

Try the following

if(get_class($block) =='Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Grid_Massaction'
        && $block->getRequest()->getControllerName() == 'sales/order')
        $block->addItem('cpsync', array(
            'label' => 'Push Orders to CounterPoint',
            'url' => Mage::app()->getStore()->getUrl('*/yourcontroller/youraction'),

If your controller file's name is something like CpsyncController.php, it would need a method like public function pushAction(){<!--your code here-->}, the */yourcontroller/youraction bit in your Observer would be */cpsync/push

P.S it is imperative that you use the Action suffix after the method name in your controller for the redirect to pick up the function itself.

  • still getting the same url with the 404 redirect. its in a folder called adminhtml in controllers and then IndexController.php would the url be */adminhtml_index/push? Feb 7, 2014 at 16:11
