Creating CMS Pages

Edit on GitHub

This topic provides a list of steps to create a CMS page in the Back Office.

To start working with the CMS pages, navigate to the Content Management > Pages.

CMS page is an additional page of your online shop, such as Terms and Conditions, About Us, Contact Us, etc. Here you can create, publish, edit, and manage CMS pages, as well as add content item widgets coupled with the template and multiple CMS blocks.

Creating a CMS Page

To create a page:

  1. In the top right corner, click Create page.

  2. On the Create CMS Page page that opens, you can see two tabs: General and SEO.

  3. In the General tab, do the following:

    • Use the store relation to set a store for which your page will be visible on the website. If you want your CMS page not to be displayed per specific locale, clear a respective checkbox.
    • Optional: Select Is searchable if you want your page to be searched for on the web.
    • Select a page template that will determine a page layout. This is a mandatory step.

    Templates are project-specific and are usually created by a developer and a business person. If you are missing a CMS Page template, contact them and refer to the HowTo - Create a CMS Page template.

    • Optional: Enter Valid from and Valid to if you want to define the validity period during which your page will be available in the shop.
    • Enter Name and URL of the page per locale. This is a mandatory step.
  4. In the SEO tab, enter meta information: title, keywords, and description. The meta details are important for SEO purposes, such as optimizing webpage ranking by search engines and improving website usability.

  5. To keep the changes, click Save.

Tips and tricks

  • Keep in mind that by default, store relation is enabled for all stores. To hide your page per specific locale(s), clear checkboxes per that(those) locale(s).

  • Please consider the following cases:

    • If Is searchable is selected, but store relation is turned off for all stores, the CMS page will not be displayed and will not be searchable.
    • If Is searchable is not selected, but store relation is turned on, the CMS page will be shown but will not be searchable.
  • If you want to create different versions of the page per locale, add the general information to the section in the corresponding language.

What’s next?

Until now, you have created a page draft. The page itself will be available in the online store after you publish it.
