Web Site pages explained
Posted 14 Mar 2018, Doug DePrenger
There are three types of web site pages in slscart: required, built-in, and user created. In the store admin, go to Web Site > Pages to see a list of the current pages. There are four columns displayed:
- Drag-and-drop button, signified by an '=', which orders the pages
- Name of the page
- Page status: required, active, inactive
- Edit button
Types of pages
There are two required pages: home page and catalog page. They both have 'required' in the page status column. They cannot be deleted.
There are several built-in pages, such as event calendar and site map. Their status is either active or inactive. They cannot be deleted.
There can be user-created web site pages, which are created by clicking the 'Add New Page' button. A user-created page will have a black X next to the name of the page. The black X is a delete button.
All pages have a top part which is accessible via the 'Edit' button.
Required and built-in pages have a bottom part
User-created pages only have a top part.
All pages have a top part which include the following attributes:
- Page Title
- Page Menu
- Page Name
- Show Title?
- Show Link?
- Nav image
- Header image
- Meta title
- Meta description
- Show products
- Page groupings
- Optional theme
The required pages are always active.
The built-in pages can be activated or deactivated by clicking the active or inactive button. Many of the built-in pages are special and have a custom interface to manage the lower part. They are found under Site Extras and include:
- Event Calendar
- FAQ Creator
- Gift Certificates
- Gift Registry
- Guest book
- Photo Gallery
- Web links
- Wish List
Other built-in pages have no interface as their lower part cannot be changed. They are:
- Order Tracking
- Search Catalog
- Search Site
The user-created pages can be activated or deactivated by clicking the active or inactive button. They can be deleted by clicking the black X next to the name. They only have a top part.
