Hi I want to have a wholesale arm and retail arm selling our products, I want the same website but different domains and looks, I have purchased the book mentioned above but it doesn't work on my Window 8 Laptop. I have created another store, and the next step is to install a new template for the second store, I am afraid of destroying our functioning website by lack of knowledge... can someone tell me where and how I create this store... oh and by the way the new store is not set up as a subdirectory or sub domain, as listed above.
The user manual is available on Amazon.com, or, you could download it to a Windows 7 system and print a copy for yourself.
I highly recommend taking the time to get the manual because you are making multi-store MUCH harder than it really is, you do not need to install two separate copies of OpenCart. You can also install several templates in any store (since only one is selected at any one time) OR use the generic template that is included with OpenCart. When I said "install a new template" I should have said IF YOU WANT THE SECOND STORE TO LOOK DIFFERENT. That was an assumption on my part, that you want the two stores to look different. If you want the stores to look the same, you do not need to install a different template.
Hope that helps!
I am wanting two different looks, two totally different domain names, I was just wondering where I install the second template without wiping over the first one, (if both domains names are working off the same store directory)
Also I have already purchased your book, its unfair that I would have to purchase it again? Print it out? It has too many pages to print out.
All I need is to set up this 2nd store and I am done!
