I got kind of confused with the documents, I've looked at a few utube videos too.
When I installed Magento CE there was no nav menu or no products on the front page,
So I created a new category "featured" and a new product, added that product to the new category.
There's no nav menu on the page and no products. what else do I have to do to get these displaying?
I fixed the nav menu by dragging my new category onto the default category, the nav now displays.
Any info on getting the products to display on the front page appreciated.
This guide helped me get the products to display on the front page
After adding the code to the content area in the home page it shows this on the home page:
There are no products matching the selection.
Following this guide, step 8 got the products displaying on the front page
Thanks for sharing.
