In Progress

gsdYes, this is a another shopping cart tutorial. I am planning to make this tutorial to cover a more sophisticated shopping cart solution but for now it only explains a basic shopping cart. I will improve it in time so stay tuned.

3. Admin, Control Panel

Where all shopping cart administration work takes place. This page explains the basic structure of the admin pages and brief explanation on each admin submodules.
