Been getting to grips with Magento for just over 2 weeks and feel like i'm becoming more familiar with the software... however... I keep coming across issues with the software itself and my lack of scripting/programming experience seems to be a massive factor.
Is there anyone else out there who feels or felt the same way?
Is this software suitable for me?
I decided to move up to Magento because i thought it was the right thing to do in terms of eCommerce and overall web development. I had previously been using Wix but had literally drained every bit of life out of that software and needed something with more options.
I know this is very different to Wix but if Magento isn't for me is there any other software that anyone could suggest i use instead?
I am primarily a designer and things like scripting issues put me off because i just like to get in there and do my job... design.
appreciate any feed back.
Guessing im on my own then...
Is it because i said the 'W' word?
First of all, welcome to the community forums!
I guess you can't compare Magento and Wix. Magento (2 in particular) is a hard and really heavy architected platform. Powerful and flxible but at the begining it will feel hard to learn.
Lucky for you (and all of us) we have documentation: http://devdocs.magento.com/ (also you can help to improve those documents)
Also, there are several online resources available. For example https://www.mage2.tv/ from @Vinai.
Another option is to ask and try to help into the forums. You will learn a lot. Also you'll find information on StackExchange.
Another recomendation could be to be aware of Magento issues on Github: https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues (if you are technical, of course).
Regarding th eforums, you should read this post: https://community.magento.com/t5/Welcome-to-the-Magento-Community/Start-here-and-hello-from-me/m-p/5... (in particular the guidelines)
Fianlly, you'll need to get your hands dirty with the platform.
