Has Anyone Written a Proper User Manual?

Quite simply what I want to know is that if this project has been going for over 4 years did anyone bother to write a proper step by step user manual with screenshots?

 

So far I've had to go into the PHP ode to try and figure out hot to set this script up.

 

I got the initial Catalog working fine but the Admin section wasn't working.

Then after manually adding my username, password, etc to the PHP file I at least get to the inital admin screen but none of the links from that work.

 

The lack of a decent user manual is properly the worst thing about open source software, and many are now using these Wiki systems that mean they don't even bother with simple screenshots that would save most experience users who are new to the system a lot of headache.

 

This link below seems to be what's considered an installtion guide

Are you proud of your first post here? :blink:

 

Do you realize you're insulting the very people that have spent 4 years on this so you can have a FREE shopping cart? What have you contributed? Nothing except one whining post. Thanks for that. We all appreciate it.

 

The Wiki site is fine. A 10-year-old could understand it. Go back and read it again (and again, and again , and again if necessary). If that doesn't work PAY someone to install it for you (perhaps there's a 10-year-old available).

Or he could try running the install again. :lol:

 

It does work. Especially if one follows the directions.

I've been around here long enough to know, You only get out what you put in. :o

 

If you don't put in the blood, sweat, tears and time, then yeah, this won't work for ya.

 

You'll probably want to go buy a shopping cart somewhere else, or pay someone.

This just might be too much work for ya. :blink:

9 times out of 10 its a PEBCAK Error (Problem exists between chair and keyboard)

 

Replace that and you're fine...
