Basic Magento Functions

We will show you in this tutorial how to manage some of the important functions in Magento in a few simple steps.

The first step is to login to the administrator back-end of the store:

If you have installed magento under a subfolder of the www root folder for an example “store” you should add this directory name before the index.php.

When the administrator back-end is completely rendered you will see the dashboard which brings fast access to useful information:

On the top menu you will notice various links which will allow you to modify your store, add products, manage customs and orders:

The first thing to do before you start building your store is to set your business details. You may complete that via the System Configurations tab:

The first tab here is “Countries Options”:

Here you may select the countries allow to be used for new accounts registrations. Additionally you may configure the countries for which post/zip code is a must and where it is not required. The second tab is the “Locale Options”:

Please note that it is very important here to use your correct store details. This information will be used for some shipping carrier modules and also for the new orders time stamps.

The last tab is the Store info such as name, address and telephone:

After you have filled in the info you may click on the “Save Config” button which on the right top corner of this configuration menu. You will notice on the right side of this page all the configurable functions  for the store. You may take a quick look through all of these, they are self-explanatory and pretty easy to manage.
