Hello,
just found Magento through Zend Framework.
I installed everything on a XAMPP just for a quick testing.
After finding some installation instructions (especially PDO and mycrypt) everything works here.

What a great product. Congratulations!

I am thinking of customizing Magento for a current project in a way, that it can be used as a box office shop.

Some questions:

The box office shop would be different in some points:
a) products would be events
b) one event has a common description
c) events have different dates and different times
d) events have different price_categories
e) when adding an event, a series of events based on dates and times should be added automatically

Where would be a good starting point to get started?
a) add a new product type?
other idea?

I found a small bug: When adding an attribute ‘date’ to a product it is always 00/00/00 00:00.

Sorry for this long message but I wanted to make sure I explained my case.

Rudy - you’ll need to get into the code to achieve such functionality. Familiarize yourself with the structure and then dive in smile
