Informations

Here you add general information about the page of your list :

content list information

  • URL Key: you can put the key you want, but if you don’t mention any, it will be automatically generated when you save the page
  • Store view: choose on which storeviews you want this list to appear. If your shop is available in different languages, you can select them all to create one list for each storeview, then you’ll be able to manage the translation really easily.
  • Status: choose enabled to display your list.
    If you want to desactivate an existing list, choose disabled and error 404 will be returned.
