Even after reading the FAQ, I'm still asking myself:

Are questions specific to programming/coding issues allowed on magento.se, or are they not (and should be migrated to stackoverflow.com)?

1 Answer 1


I'd hope that they are valid here.

Magento SE should cover a scope of questions through the different abstraction layers.

  1. Server configuration
  2. Coding/programming
  3. Store administration

If we moved 1. to Server Fault, 2. to Stack Overflow - then all we'd be left answering trivial questions for store owners, eg.

How do I add a product?
How can I change a category picture?

  • Yeah, that's why I'm asking. I don't know, if it's intended to simply have two places, where one can ask Magento coding questions (magento.se and magento* tags on stackoverflow), or if it's thought for configuration questions of store owners only. If it's the former, imo the FAQ should state that more clearly, i.e. in a way like the FAQ of wordpress.se does it. Commented Feb 4, 2013 at 13:20
