Question Installing and setting up Magento 2 using a temp url.

Hi All,

I installed Magento 2 on my server, and it gave me the URL for my admin/dashboard as [mydomain]/store/admin. The problem is, I am using a temp domain URL while I complete the installation of Magento and don't want to point my domain from my current site to my new one until it is complete.

Is there a way of accessing the dashboard without pointing the domain? I tried the [temp domain]/store/admin and that just generated the error.

There has been an error processing your request

Thanks

i always found magento to be a PIA so i dont have much of a clue.
but i would check and config pages and .htacces pages i would imagine the 'pointing' is controlled from there , if so make backups and modify them to your url

Edbr,

Thanks for the info, i agree that this is a PIA and to be honest, i have had more trouble with this then any other element of the site 10x over.

Are there any other open-source carts with video options built in to the product pages that you can recommend? I am only using Magento as it is free, offers video's and images in the product pages and it has a review feature that i like.

I usually user Cartweaver but this does not have these feature or social media shares, so a bit stuck with how to proceed with it really.

Default Good Gallery Plugin?

Hi All,

I am trying to create a picture gallery with filters to display images, text on hover and a link to go to a specific page and enlarge the image. What are the best free or paid platforms?

Thanks

there are lots that do the first parts, so is a question of layout.
As fpr the link to a page with large image i dont know but if you make the link to a page with a $ _GET valueie display.php?image=image1.jpg, you can use php on the display page to render the correct image and more if you use a database.
here is a basic image grid example that you could use

Thanks Edbr, apologise for doubling up the posts, i would have put money on me creating a new thread but i must have gotten muddled with the 2 queries. Are then any easy to install plugins that you can recommend to get the job done? I would like something that looks quite smart if possible.

TBH i always think that depends on exactly what you are looking for.
How many pics how the thumbnails are displayed etc.
installing a jquery pluging is usually a standard thing, link to jquery script , link to the plugin js file, add a call back, add the gallery code where you want it to display, include the css file.

have a look at these free ones and later if i get time ill add an example of the v simple gris i sugested , its really meant for a few pics but the principle is the same .

http://designscrazed.org/free-respon...image-sliders/
just had a look at http://smoothgallery.jondesign.net/download/
many options there and adding to a caption <p><a href="image.php?image=my image.jpg">Show the page</a></p> will provide a link to where ever you want, if you want the pic and info on a separate page for example
