Before a critical path update, i was missing the customers name on my dashboard BE.



Here is the column with the fault on line 87:

$this->addColumn('customer', array(
    'header'    => $this->__('Customer'),
    'sortable'  => false,
    'index'     => 'customer',
    'default'   => $this->__('Guest'),

Now, it returns a white space.

What i should check?

  • So, you have overridden the default Dashboard_Orders_Grid? Or, you're using the default core Dashboard_Orders_Grid & want to show names which are not showing. Aug 18, 2015 at 7:26
  • Is those customer names are showing in Sales_Order_Grid? Aug 18, 2015 at 7:27
  • I am using the default core dashboard_orders_grid , and the customers name display perfectly. The problem in this column, is that must show default 'Guest' , because the last 5 orders are from not logged customers but it don't display nothing. And yes, they are showing in sales_order_grid as customer or guest.

After looking for the error, i can't reproduce where it is, so i manage the error with STYLE & JS:

#lastOrdersGrid_table tbody td:empty:after { content: 'Guest' }


var cells = document.querySelectorAll( '#lastOrdersGrid_table tbody td:first-child' );

Array.prototype.slice.call( cells ).forEach( function( cell ) {
    if ( cell.innerHTML == ' ' )
        cell.innerHTML = '';
