Basic Install and Setup of NB_Store

Please note - This information is now superceeded by this basic setup guide.


To install and setup NB_Store you should:
  • Install - Browse to the "Host/Module Definitions" page and select "Update New Module". In the file upload control browse for the the NB_Store module and click Upload custom Module.
  • Setting up roles - Create a new role called "Manager" and another role called "ManagerLite"
  • Create a Store Manager Menu - Add a new page to your website called "Store Menu". On this new page add the module NBStoreBackOffice. Give module edit rights to the "Manager" and "ManagerLite" roles. (On the first loadup of the manager menu it will load the default settings and templates into the database.) TIP: To add content to the store start by adding categories, before products.
  • Create Cart and Checkout - Add a new page to your website called "Cart". On this new page add the module NBStoreCheckout. On the settings menu of the module specify your requirements, default settings are loaded the first time you enter the settings.
  • Create ProductList - Add a new page to your website called "Shop". On this new page add the module NBStoreProductList. On the settigs menu of the module specify your requirements, default settings are loaded the first time you enter the settings.
  • Create Category Menu -At the top of the "Shop" Page add the module NBStoreCategoryMenu. On the settings menu of the module specify your requirements, default settings are loaded the first time you enter the settings.

This is all you need to do to get a basic store to work. Additional modules NBStoreMiniCart and NBStoreOrderHistory can also be setup as you wish.

It seems that the install process would be a whole lot less confusing if it was noted in these install instructions that a new page called "Manager" needs to be added and that NB_STore_Backoffice module is to be put on it.
I see robax has commented about the use of it's incorrect naming, but it does still leave some confusion

Change NBStoreManagerMenu to NB_Store_BackOffice
