I’ve tried to buy the ebook several times, but it creates a loop redirecting to the product page when it should proceed to checkout, and it’s impossible to end the checkout process. Now excuse me, but that’s quite ironic considering that you are the creators of magento.... rasberry

I was able to buy it, but not to download it…

I too cannot download. I used the PayPal checkout if that helps narrow down the issue. Any chance I can download this soon, as I happily have a free evening in and this would be really helpful.

Okay, I’m like a child at Christmas… I want my new toy!

Just wondering if anyone has had any additional success with the $20 ebook.  There are about 200 pages total in the PDF free userguide if you print it out, hate to pay for an item that I really already have.

Thanks

That’s my question also. Is this the same as is available online (only that I could save to HD or print out) or does this have different information?

What about when the upgrades come will this be updated or outdated in 6 months or so? If updated how will payment be handled? Free upgrade or not?

Thank you for producing such a nice User Guide!  I know how much “manual labor” it represents because I’ve spent most of my career producing end-user documentation.  So please bear with me while I make a couple of suggestions… (I just can’t help myself!)

To make this a more distribution-ready document, you can crop the pages to the intended trim size and set the display options to Facing Pages, Fit Page.  It gives it a much nicer feel, and anyone who has Adobe Acrobat can make these changes—even if they already downloaded the ebook.  Here’s how:

To crop the pages:

1. On the Document menu, click Crop Pages.

2. Under Margin Controls, make the following settings:

Top:  0.625
Bottom: 0.375
Left:  0.625
Right: 0.375

(I believe the correct page size is 7.5 x 10)

3. Under Page Range, click All.

4. Click OK to save the settings.

To change the display mode:

1. On the File menu, click Properties.

2. On the Initial View tab, under Layout and Magnification, make the following settings:

Page layout: Two-Up (Cover Page)
Magnification: Fit Page

3. Click OK to save the changes.

Also, I notice a couple of pages were intentionally left blank, but they actually interfere with the pagination. It’s too late to delete them now, but in the next release, you might want to make sure that each chapter starts on an odd-numbered (right-side) page.

That’s all! (Now I’m going to go read it.) cool smile
