I am relatively new to magento. I am trying to create a landing page that will have image links to the two different store views. I used this tip to set that up. How to setup multi stores with different themes for Magento CE
But there's a few problems.
- I don't know if my approach is correct. I set up the stores and store views in magento, and then I created cms pages for each store and set them to the store view. Then, I created a cms landing page which I set to the default "home page", added the images and inserted the URL links. When the images are clicked it goes to the "page not found." I tried setting the store view for both pages to "all store views" and then the image links worked. But I don't know if this disconnects the page from the store and it's catalogue. Here's the homepage so you can see what I mean. http://tuckersfurniture.biz
2.I have set up theme variations for both the store views but I can't get them to show up. The file structure looks like this:
-app-design-frontend-hellowiredx-default -app-design-frontend-hellowiredx-cashcarry -app-design-frontend-hellowiredx-valleyfurniture
-skin-frontend-hellowiredx-default -skin-frontend-hellowiredx-cashcarry -skin-frontend-hellowiredx-valleyfurniture
The only difference between these are things like background color and logo. As far as I can tell, I have put the right names in the right fields in magento to call the different theme variants, so I don't think that is the problem. I think I somehow set up the pages or the stores wrong or the store is not properly linked to its respective page.
Like I said I'm relatively new at this so I appreciate any help I can get. I don't know much about PHP, so if that is part of the solution you might have to walk me through it.
