Problem with Editing Products

Hello.  I have installed a test system and created a couple of new products.

(My overall reaction to this software is very very positive.  I have implemented and maintained sites with zencart, xcart, and miva.)

I’ve run into the following problem:  I have edited the name of one product via the admin interface; this change is reflected when I view the product database from the admin interface; but I am not seeing any change from the public store interface.  The original name of the product persists!?

Has anyone seen such a problem?

Also, I have been browsing the database via phpmyadmin --the location of the basic product information is not obvious.  And I cannot find a database dictionary.  If this documentation is available, it would be very nice to review.)

With best regards!

And congrats to the Magento team for a great job.  PLEASE keep up the good work.

Philippe

Philippe - in the top left there is a select menu - make sure that the ‘English Store’ is selected then try to change the name and see if that works. Since product name is a local variable changes are only affect the store that is being edited.

The documentation is on the way smile

thanks
