Is it normal to have store_id 0 for all my categories? (Magento 2)

Hello everyone, I’m fairly new to Magento. I’m bulk importing items using and I currently only have one store. I am running a fresh install and my url rewrites work fine for products but the categories don’t work. The category rewrites will work if I go into the database table and change the category rewrites store_id to 1.

In the source code the developer is forcing category to have store_id of 0. I’m not sure the reasoning behind this, but I am wondering if I should just modify the store_id to be 1.

Is there any significance to having categories store_id = 0?

Anyone know of a good Admin theme?

I was really impressed by the PowerdashM2, but didn’t buy it last fall while I was looking. It now appears to be offline, or no longer for sale. There are a couple of other dashboards out there I’ve found, one from CMSMart which doesn’t work above 2.3.0 and they won’t upgrade, something similar from LandofCoders.

I can easily change the colors, icons, etc. but I am looking for something more customizable than that.

Please help a newbies with questions about choosing Magento as a career path.

Hello guys and girls.

My path has led me to this forum after searching for information about Magento. As a beginner in PHP and getting to grips with Magento, i’d really appreciate some help answering a few questions I have about the software. I’m looking at training and books, so I my need to follow up on those things later.

Opinion based, but also can be useful from multiple viewpoints : Is Magento a growing, in demand area of specialization around the world? I’m from France if that makes any difference.

Are salaries generally good for the work compared to other frameworks, both within PHP and other languages?

Are there any makor roadblocks that cause you to dissuade a newbie starting down the Magento path with the hopes of a fulfilling, challenging career?

Excited to hear from te community. Stay safe.

Magento Announces Offerings to Help Small & Mid-Sized Companies!!!

I was really excited to see this. Then, I read this Magento offering for “Small” businesses is offering 3 months of Magento Commerce for free. So you sign on for a product that you’ll typically stick with for what, at least 36 months? Then, you get 3 months off to help seal the deal since your cash flow may be hurting right now? Isn’t that something that the sales team could have already pulled off in terms of discounts? That’s less than a 10% discount if you think of a website lasting at least 3 years.

A Magento Commerce license starts at what, $20k to $50k per year? I don’t see how this is an offering to help Small businesses. If all that Magento can offer is an ~8% discount on its enterprise product, is this really something that needs to be publicized as support for businesses impacted by the Coronavirus crisis? It’s not like after the 3 months you can switch to something else without losing your shirt on your development investment, and that’s assuming a long-term contract isn’t required, which I’d doubt would be the case.

I’m hoping that I’m just reading this wrong, but the other terms don’t seem like anything special. They’re offering to spin up the account within 2-weeks, which doesn’t seem like a major feat… Someone help me out here. I must be missing something.

Manage Options isn’t working at all

I’m really unsure what to do with this anymore. Using Magento EE 2.3.4, and I am unable to add or reorder product attributes option. Specifically, this is a color attribute, and I can’t add additional colors under “Manage Options (Values of your Attribute).

My max_input_vars is set at 19500. Nothing works. I have checked in the database and there is nothing new added, although Magento gives me a message box saying it did save. And to really confound things, I have checked the logs and there aren’t any error messages.

I’ve ran out of ideas, so any help is appreciated.

Setting up a grocery mobile app for curbside pickup

Plan on setting up Magento as a simple mobile app for grocery pickup. It will only have ordering feature, no payment processing. Will also need mobile number validation. I dont plan on storing customer profiles, just a list of what they last ordered (which will eventually get overwritten by the next order).

Would appreciate your recommendations on how to get started?

Should i deploy Magento on-premise or should I go PaaS from the get-go?
