Who This Documentation Is For

Because FoxyCart is radically different than most e-commerce systems (in that it isn't turnkey, nor is it an “all in one” solution), FoxyCart does require at least some web design and development knowledge. As such, this documentation assumes at least a passing familiarity with the lingo associated with building websites. If something is unclear please feel free to ask, but if you're a completely non-technical user hoping to learn HTML, these pages will probably frustrate you.

If, on the other hand, you already know a little HTML/CSS/JavaScript and want to improve by getting advanced with FoxyCart, or if you're already capable, dive right in. Please let us know how you like the docs. And please note that this wiki is publicly editable, so if you feel you can improve a section, please do!
