Trying to understand the structure of kickstart

I finaly downloaded the current version of kickstart 2.0.

I am trying to understand, how th structures work together.

1. to create a new product type with grouping in a new catalog section, you have to do a lot of thing.

- I created a new product_type
- I created a new entry on taxonomy "collection"
- I created a new entry on taxonomy "category"

Then I made the taxonomy menue to recreate from entries.

Then I created a new Product-Variation of the new type.

I was not able to select the category or collection, because the section "Product Catalog" is empty.

Somehow I must have missed something.

Same problem as you. I have an existing sqlite database that I was going to combine with the sqlite database in the demo store to see a quick fix. I imported the fields into the database. I then thought that there must be an import function in the CMS admin. The structure would help.

If you want to run something so much depending on a responsive database engine, like a CMS or Webshop, you better use mySQL or another professional Database engine.

SqlLite is something to play around with little databases und not too heavy access.
