A recent install of PrestaShop v1.6 was throwing an Exception Error when trying to convert a cart to an order. This happened when the customer paid or in the back office converting a cart to an order manually. It was only happening in some instances and only on the live server not my local copy. Hence, it was tricky to track down the culprit.
If you are running a Prestashop 1.5+ store and also using Google Analytics then you should be using Goals to track your sales.
There is a severe problem in Prestashop when trying to edit a cart rule. This occurs when you have many rules and are using the compatibility section. A poorly constructed query in Prestashop's code causes the page to take an extraordinarily long time to run or just time out. On one client's site it was browsing over one billion rows!
Update for Prestashop version 1.4.7 When you enter a category into Prestashop you have the ability to enter a description. This only allows text though - no HTML.
