my requirement is to add custom columns in sales/order grid in admin. when i enabled path hints, it gave me the path adminhtml\default\default\template\bl/customgrid/widget/grid/16.phtml

so first of all i wanted to disable that module and see the output .

i disables it in system/configuration/advanced.

and cleared the cache, then logged out and again freshly logged in , but still its giving the same path .

how is it possible?

  • best way to disable extension is via .xml in app/etc/modules - then flush cache – Steven J Sep 19 '17 at 17:09

When enabled, the BL Custom Grid extension creates a Grid Customization button above the Reset and Search buttons on the right side of the grid.

Clicking this button will open an area that will let you customize the columns in that display.

enter image description here

Use the More Options button to view commonly used columns for that specific grid. Otherwise click Add Attribute Column to create a new row at the bottom of the list. Use the Field Name column drop down to change the related attribute information shown. Some attributes may require further Configuration via the link provided. There are also Store View dependent options, column name, and width settings to be adjusted if desired.

The customization of the Sales Order page is not as feature-rich as the product catalog is, so you may not find all of the options you are looking for. I've found a lot of what I need to show in the "Custom Columns" area and have been able to get by with filtering down from there.

  • i can see there is blue color button (Add Attribute Column) in your screenshot, but i don't have that one, how can i get it, do i need to install any extension for that ? – user58897 Sep 20 '17 at 9:09
  • I am using a custom admin theme that may change the appearance of the buttons. You should have the same layout, just not the same colors. – Steven J Sep 20 '17 at 16:26
  • I realize I posted a screenshot of the manage catalog page, not the sales orders page. I have updated the screenshot to and removed the text for the "add attribute" button. The Sales Order page is limited to the options found in the "Custom Columns" area in "more options" - as shown in updated screenshot. If you want to add something outside of those selections, I am not sure this extension is the right choice for you. – Steven J Sep 20 '17 at 16:30
  • @StevenJ how can i add a custom attribute in sales order grid. In managed Products grid we can easily add another custom attribute, but how can i add a custom attribute in sales order grid. – zus Oct 23 '17 at 8:47
