Add this one to the annals of “What took you so long Google?” Gmail’s greatest feature just graduated from the service’s experimental labs to become a regular part of Gmail: Undo Send. With this feature enabled, you have a pre-determined number of seconds to recall the email you just sent.
If you’ve never used this feature, I can’t stress enough how helpful it is. We’ve all sent emails we didn’t mean to or had second thoughts about the wording. Prior to Undo Send, we just had to suck it up and live with our mistakes. Not a great situation to be in when email is such a critical communication tool—even in this era of HipChat and Slack.
Overnight success, six years ago
Undo Send began as an experimental feature in 2009 when it offered only a five second retrieval period. It was a hit almost immediately and has been a mainstay of many Gmail accounts since it was first introduced.
Although handy, Undo Send does have limits beyond the recall grace period. Once you click Send on an email, an undo option appears at the top of your inbox or whatever page you’re on in Gmail such as sent mail. Once you leave that page, the Undo Send option immediately disappears regardless of the grace period setting. In other words, when you want to use this option don’t click anything until you’ve hit that Undo link.
Undo Send’s graduation into standard Gmail comes less than a month after Google added the feature to Inbox by Gmail.
The impact on you at home: If you’re already an Undo Send user then your current settings won’t be affected. Everything will work as it should. Anyone who’s new to the feature will find it under Settings > General. Undo Send allows you to recall an email either 5, 10, 20, or 30 seconds after you’ve hit Send. I’d recommend the maximum to be extra cautious, but if you like to live on the wild side, 5 or 10 seconds will work just fine.
Sometimes whilst adding new product images you may exprience this error and some times it is not clear as to why this error has occurred. To fix this issue, do the following steps in order and it will resolve it:
Go to your magento installation directory and open /lib/varien/file/uploader.php
Search for function ‘public function save($destinationFolder, $newFileName = null)’ or ‘if (!is_writable($destinationFolder))’
Copy $destinationFolder variable and append it to ‘throw new Exception(‘Destination folder is not writable or does not exists.’)’ so it becomes ‘throw new Exception(‘Destination folder is not writable or does not exists.’.$destinationFolder);’
Go back to your magento admin panel and try to upload the images again
You will see the same error but this time the destination folder path will be shown too
Copy the path, go to your FTP client or SSH and set the file permissions to 777 (it has to be 777 not 775)
Once done, upload the file back to the server
Logout from the Magento admin and login again
Go to the product and this time the images will be uploaded
