I was recommended to install Loaded615 by my affiliate manager so that I could have my own shop selling products. After reading the promnotional literature, which stated, its easy to build your own site, even internet and design novices, (which im not) can build a fully functional shop with ease. WEll, that all sounded great. I installed it, connected my database which all went okay. However, when id tried to build a front end for my site, I couldn't find anything anywhere that allows you do this. Ive been sitting in front of my PC for the best part of a day now and I cant make head nor tail of it. Im no novice either. Ive been building websites using html for years, but this as got me completely lost. There dosnt seem to be any help files, no instructions, manual or anything. As anyone else found this to be the case? Can anyone point me in the right direction to being actuallu able to build a front end so i can get on with selling things.

Not sure what C panel is??

 

I downloaded the program as a zip file, unzipped and uploaded to the server. The program was downloaded with the cart and products preinstalled which the compnay I affiliate for did for me. I got a friend to install it, and connect the database which all went to plan. Having built front end websites for years I thought i could take over from there, but I cant see any way of building a front end from the control panel.

 

The front of the site is up and running. see www.naughtyadultsexshop.com (i'll be selling adult products, lingerie, frilly knickers etc)

 

Im really perplexed as to where to start building my frontend

CPanel is the control panel from your host.Where your files are listed.And i'm not really sure what version that you have got running.But I'm sure someone will come along in a minute and state the answer.

"Customize this page with your own text in the Admin from TOOLS - Define MainPage"

 

 

It looks as if you know how to set user permissions as you have added text and pictures.You will need to set the permission to edit this main front page.But keep the editing withing the () define text.

 

I would add a . first and see what happens.

 

Hope this helps.

one thing about this type of program it isn't html. You can place html in it say for a meta tag of a hyperlink. But this is PHP such things as when writting a word with 's you have to \'s if you don't place a back slash you\'ll get an error page. Theres more to it. Just don't let it get to you, you'll get it. There are allot of good folks on this forum that know allot.
