In Magento CE 1.5.1, the "Persistent Shopping Cart" item menu (under customers) isn't there. I have another install of Magento CE 1.5.1 on the same server that displays it normally. I've tried it under all different scopes, but it just doesn't show up.

What should I try next?

  • I think this is available only from CE 1.6 ? magentocommerce.com/blog/comments/… Are you sure the other install where it is displayed is also CE 1.5.1 ? Maybe there is a customization done in that shop?

Magento did not release the Persistent Shopping Cart until Magento CE so you shouldn't be able to see it in Magento CE Attached is a screenshot of a clean install (with sample data) of Magento CE, it is not showing "Persistent Shopping Cart" under Customers.

Magento CE Release Notes

If you can see it in another Magento CE, I am wondering if it is actually a CE site, or a custom extension is doing it.

I would recommend first diffing both sites with a clean CE, and checking to see if core code has been changed, or if new core files has been added (like in the event of a failed upgrade to CE 1.6). Personally I use DiffMerge to do this, however there are several tools you can use.

Second, I would check what extensions are installed on each site and determine if any of them have to do with Persistent Cart.

  • No extensions. And it is the same version. Baffling...

  • I installed this one and have been the only admin all along. Interestingly enough, see the screenshot of one of my 1.5 installs here: i.imgur.com/79sil1c.png, along with it's extensions: i.imgur.com/muLNgtd.png

  • I've seen core modules pulled down from later versions; and upgrades to later versions that didn't have app/Mage.php upgraded, thus the version discrepancy. I'd do a diff against a vanilla

    Diff your code next to see differences. Then screenshot your extensions from 'System' -> Configuration -> Advance
