I’m really loving magento so far, but I do have a few problems with it.
Is there a light version in the works? Right now the program is like using a sledgehammer to do the work of a feather. It is way overkill on the options, it is going to take months to configure when it could be made easy enough to take a day at most. It would be really nice if you guys could give the option to simplify this monster.
Items I don’t need:
Languages, Locale, Currency, Nested themes (I don’t need layouts, templates, and skins, I just need 1 for all)
Customer groups (only 1 type of customer, its the online retail kind)
Seperate template options for everything
User management (if its for a small store, there will only ever be 1 admin/user)
scheduling (price/sales, active from/to, newsletter)
tax rules (just need an option to turn on or off taxes, we only sell 1 type of item)
search (prefer it if the customer cant search, though that is easy enough to change via templates)
send a product to a friend
cc without payment gateway
I would love to see magento take on more of a wordpress feel to it
That is, it has a core module, and then it has widgets/plugins. If you want all of those features listed, you download them and add them on to the core, or have checkmark boxes asking during setup if you need these features.
I guess what i am trying to say is that it is needlessly complex for anyone running a small operation
