I need some assistance with setting up my shop.

I’ve installed magento 1.1.3, but am not sure how to get products to display.

I’ve setup the shop, added a product, but the product only shows up through the search box, no category thing at the top of the page, no featured product. Nothing

Does anyone know what i should be doing.

P.S. I’m embarassed to be asking such a stupid question, plz dont laugh

Ok, are your catagories under your “default” one?

are the catagories “visable”

are the items “enabled”

you most likely need to click and drag the categories your products are under into the “default category” section.

You can click and drag them on the left in the Categories section in the Admin (Admin > Catalog > Manage Categories
