Magento Community Edition

Magento Community Edition is open source eCommerce software used to power your online store and can be downloaded for free. Developers can modify the core code and add features and functionality by installing extensions from the Magento Connect marketplace.

Businesses using Community Edition as their open source eCommerce solution to run their stores will want to have access to their own Magento experts, since Magento does not provide technical support for this software. Answers to many technical questions are available on our User Forum. Our open source community is growing and engaged to help support running your online store.

In fact, many of the users of our open source eCommerce software regularly participate in the forum and possess advanced knowledge of the solution. Although Magento’s Enterprise Edition provides many more robust features and expert support, our open source solution gives smaller merchants the tools they need to run their online stores more effectively.

How Does the User Forum Work?

The User Forum provides you with direct access to a broad network of dedicated Magento enthusiasts to share tips and offer support when you need it. Our forum rules provide everything you need to get help using our open source eCommerce software.
