I am new to Internet Commerce and trying to learn all of this...
I have followed all instructions when installing magento using wampserver. I have made it through all the way to the "success" page letting me know that magento has been successfully installed, yet when I try to load it it does not load correctly. I put in my UN and PW and it opens, but there are no pictures and all of the text is in blue and I am unable to actually customize my store. Sorry, I know im a beginner, but I have tried everything I can to fix this issue and still no luck. Would anyone be able to help me with this?
It sounds like a permission or static content issue.
You should try (first) using the Magento's console to regenerate the static content:
Also, can you check if your browser's console shows some 404 error?
