Basic Configuration in Magento 2
We will introduce the Admin tools of the store in this section. Here we will see the concepts of the scope of store hierarchy and configuration, as well as establish best practices for industry standards and demands.
The “Store Admin” is a password-protected backend dashboard, where we (as a merchant) can set up products, promotions, order management, and other administrative tasks as well. From this Admin, all essential configuration functions and storage management operations are performed.
We can build any number of additional accounts. In this, a default Admin account is required to manage the store and support the customer account. That account may be associated with a particular role and level of access, depending on the business needs of an individual.
Market details is a place where we can enter necessary store information such as store name, address, language, store contact number, country, state, and currency, etc.
It is the front view of the store, which has the theme of Luma. The first thing we want to alter is the logo in the header, and a favicon is uploaded for the browser. We would like to change the copyright notice in the footer below as well. These are the basic things that we have to do first.
Follow the following steps to change the logo and default message:
1. Build a 16 * 16 or 32 * 32 logo from site favicon.io.
2. Tap on the Content in the Admin tab.
3. Tap on Edit of your current web site in the Project Configuration Tab.
4. Access the Head of HTML under other settings, and import the favicon icon from here.
5. Click on Import to browse the logo in the tab, and then click Save Configuration after selecting the logo.
6. Click on the Header section below the HTML Head section, and change the default message.
7. Write the default text in the Text area Welcome.
8. Now go inside Program-> Manage Cache. Label the Page Cache and pick Refresh from the drop-down list, and press Send.
Verify that the logo and default message on the frontend has changed.
Sites, Shops & Views
Magento has a website, shop, and display views hierarchy, which consists of one-to-many relationships. There may be various websites in a single installation, and each site may have multiple stores and views to store. Magento 2 helps us to run numerous websites, with different views of shops.
Through design, Magento initially has a website called “Main Website.” Also, we can create multiple websites, each with its IP address and domain.
A single website may have multiple stores, each with its main menu. The shops have the same catalog of items but may have a different choice of designs and goods. All stores share the same Admin and checkouts under the same website.
Each store is displayed according to a specific view, which is available to the customers. A store typically has a single default view. We can create views from the store for different languages, designs, and layouts. While sharing customer data, checkouts, articles, and shopping carts, every view can have its domain, looks, feel, and language.
Magento 2 provides online merchants security and privacy features that meet the legal requirements and industry guidelines. The payment card industry enforces many policies, and others depending on your position, are required by law.
