If your media won't upload, scroll down to the bottom of the page and check to see that the long links say "WRITEABLE." If not, use cPanel's FILE MANAGER to change the "Write Permissions" on the folders listed to 755 (on some hosts 777).

Upload File

To upload an image from your computer, click the BROWSE Button and select it from your personal computer. Then choose whether to upload, replace existing image or replace the existing thumbnail image. IMPORTANT: If you do not select the UPLOAD radio button, the image will not upload. Click the top right SAVE Button to upload.

{tab=Additional Information}

Vendor - Permissions

You are already assigned to the highest level, Admin. If you want to lower your own permissions, select a different role from this box. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Shopper Number/ID

This is pre-filled in for your information. If you use website statistics, you can use this number to eliminate your own visits to your store and get a true count of visitors.

Shopper Group

You can assign yourself to a special user group, example Wholesale, so you can see your storefront as your customers do. But I recommend that you sign up as a customer to create a separate account for testing, and then in your Admin assign them to a special group.

Shipment Addresses

Most users can add an additional shipment address here by clicking the green "+" icon. But because you are editing the "Super User" record, nothing happens. You must edit your address in JOOMLA's Users - User Manager - Super User.

Additional Information

This is all your logon information. When you have finished, click the top right SAVE Button.
