Do you plan on having further documentation and/or videos on how to use Exchange? I'm new to shopping carts.

The installation and initial setup were easy, but it took  a while to notice that "Settings" also had to be completed. In the "Pages" section, what is the difference between an Exchange page, a Wordpress page and a disabled page?

Were the "getting started" webinars recorded? Are they available somewhere on-site?

Hi algisk,

All of the settings are covered in the Exchange Codex, including Pages.  You do not have change these settings if you don't need/want to.

The Exchange page type is the default page type which is created by Exchange, you don't need to do anything to these pages.  If you want to make changes to the pages, however, it would require changes in Exchange itself.

The WordPress page type allows you to select a page that you've created in WordPress.  Selecting this page type gives you a shortcode that you can add to that page that will generate the same information you see on the Exchange page type.  But this means you can add content before or after that shortcode.

The Disabled page type means that Exchange won't create that page.  So, for example, if there is a page you don't want to use, you'd disable it.  So, maybe your selling only one product and you don't need a "Store" page.  Then you'd select Disabled for that page type.  

You can check out the Getting Started with iThemes Exchange video on YouTube:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtdYDUvMhPo
