How do I edit each page?

I want to edit the home page, the product page, the checkout page, the order confirmation page.  Is there some sort of resource that tells where I can edit all these pages?

For example:

- Homepage: edit the content in this template page, the css is in this stylesheet.

etc..etc..

Anything?

Hi there,

You can either edit your pages directly from the back-end, by going into:

CMS>>Manage pages

Depending on what exactly you want to edit, you may need to edit the template files that are in your current theme’s folder.

If you want to to edit inline (directly on the pages of your store) - you need to turn on Inline Editing:

System>>Configuration>>Advanced (left side nav, bottom)>>Developer>>Translate Inline.

Enable it here, click Save on top, and browse your store from front-end - click on the little book icon to edit what can be edited. Remember to turn it OFF when done!

To see WHAT you need to edit, and where all the files are located, do as above, but once you are inside the Developer menu, change the view from Default to your current store under “Current Configuration Scope” (top left), and a new sub-menu appears under Developer>>Debug. Turn “Template Path Hints” to YES, save, and browse from front-end again.

Hope this helps!
Lisa

I had the same problem when I was trying to view Template Path Hints I would get an error.

Turning off the EAV Cache worked for me, but I am wondering what the underlying problem is ? and if I should try to fix it? Will this problem pop up later in other situations?
