Product Documentation

Welcome to the IgnitionDeck Documentation.

The best place to get started is based on what version of IgnitionDeck you’re working with. And the first place you’d always start, is with IgnitionDeck Framework, our plugin for managing the IgnitionDeck suite as a whole.

If you’re working with IgnitionDeck Legacy (no other commerce platform in use, and you’re really just running a single project on your website) proceed here.

If you’re working with IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding and IgnitionDeck Commerce, we recommend starting with each ones respective documentation. The important thing to remember is that IgnitionDeck Commerce is handling all of your crowdfundings commerce (the checkout screen), membership privileges, and any digital delivery you’d like to setup as well.

If you’ve got IgnitionDeck Enterprise, follow the setup of IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding and IgnitionDeck Commerce and then proceed to the final steps regarding the extra functionality of IgnitionDeck Enterprise.


If, after going through the docs, you need help, have a question, or just want to make a feature request, check our support forums for bugs and quick fixes, while also getting help from a community of similarly passionate users.
