Tutsplus Magento Fundamentals Changes to keep in mind (Updated 11-2014)

Keep in mind that the Tutsplus Magento Fundementals course is old and needs a few changes to get things to work

I think the course has been updated subsequently please check it on the following link to Tutsplus

Episode 10: Creating our First Controller

Remember to type it word for word, I used <uses> instead of <use> in the following code:

<frontend>
   <routers>
      <demo>
         <use>standard</use>
         <args>
         <module>Tutsplus_Demo</module>
         <frontName>demo</frontName>
         </args>
     </demo>
  </routers>
<frontend/>

Episode 15: Putting it all Together

Remember to ensure that your etc/config.xml,has the <block> section so Magento knows where to look, under <globals>.

<blocks>
   <demo>
      <class>Stephen_Demo_Block</class>
   </demo>
</blocks>

Also make sure that the handle for the sayHello Action of the Index controller is of the format:

Module_Controller_Action and not Namespace_Module_Controller_Action

Should be:

<demo_index_sayhello>

NOT

<tusplus_demo_index_sayhello>
