Hi everyone,

Sorry but I looked all over and the only info I can find is going from installation to all these crazy features.

I installed the site no problem, I created 2 items but they don’t show up on the page. It shows the demo store right now. Is there a switch to turn demo store off or something? How does it work?

If theres a file or document for the first few steps if you can show me or just tell me, that should get things rolling enough for me to figure out how to use all this.

After installation, the first few steps people should take and how to display my items are the most critical things on my mind right now.

This is my store so far @_@

Thanks!

You have to put your items in a cateogry under the Default Category:

Have you looked through any of the screencasts?  You can learn quite a bit from them:

Your store will look like the Demo Store until you begin to customize it.  You can change the logo within the Configuration settings in the admin panel.  You can download themes through Magento Connect or make your own.
