Hi there
I just downloaded and installed the Magento store… I saw in the admin site that you can edit the homepage and a few others but can you edit the product page as well?

Thanks

The product page can be edited through the theme files but not through the admin. The homepage and other static pages are controlled through the CMS functionality in the admin. The product page will require modifications directly through the files themselves. Will require more some development skills.

Thanks Adi
So customizing the files of the product page won’t affect how that page interacts with the admin correct?

All I’m looking to add to this page is a bit of text under my image.
