Magento Community Edition, 1.9.3

Getting Started

Welcome to the Magento Community Edition User Guide! This is where you’ll find the most up-to-date documentation for the current release, written with merchants in mind. This section of the guide answers the initial “why, where, and how” questions that most merchants have when first learning to use Magento. After mastering the basics, you can use this guide as a springboard to more advanced topics and resources.

Online User Guide (You're here now!)

This online user guide is our primary documentation, and is periodically updated with new topics, changes to existing content, and improvements in the way the material is presented. Some changes are in response to feedback we receive from our readers. To ensure that you see the latest content, set your browser to check for updates on each page that you visit. Make sure to check the Change Log often to see what’s new!

Use the main menu at the top of the page to explore other sections of the user guide. The topmost option of each section provides an overview with quick links and a table of contents.

PDF User Guide

You’ll find the same great information in both the online (HTML) and offline (PDF) user guides, so you can use the format you prefer. Simply click the link to open the PDF in your browser. You can also right-click the download link to save the file to your computer. The Documentation Archive at the end of this guide has PDF download links for each major version of the product.
