I’ve recently been tasked with the build and deployment of a large Ecommerce site. In the past we’ve had to use the clients legacy X-cart installation for redevelopment (too far integrated with their existing work flow).
We’d heard good things about Magento, so I’ve set up a test install to get to grips with it. After a couple of initial issues, there is a live development site which displays categories on the default theme. The problem we’ve hit now is that products don’t display..!
After a lot more in-depth research into this, all I’ve been able to discover is that quite a number of developers endorse using other solutions entirely, with the other 50% saying after the steep learning curve the platform is as wonderful as we’d initially been led to believe.
