Create an abstract product list content item
- Go to Content > Content Items.
- On the Overview of Content Items page, click Add Content Item > Abstract Product List.
- On the Create Content Item: Abstract Product List page, enter a NAME
- Optional: Enter a DESCRIPTION.
- In the Add more products section, click Add to list next to the products you want to add to the list. The products appear in the Default tab.
- Optional: To reorder the added products, click Move Up or Move Down next to the needed products.
- Optional: Repeat steps 5-6 on one or more locale-specific tabs.
The following logic applies in a multi-language setup:
- Locale-specific products overwrite the default products when the Abstract Product List is rendered on a Storefront page with the locale selected.
- If no products are selected for a locale, the default products are displayed on a Storefront page with the locale selected.
- Click Save. This opens the Overview of Content Items page with a success message displayed. The created content item is displayed in the list.
Tips and tricks
To clear product selection on a tab, click Clear locale.
