In this article you will learn how to explore/change Page Options for the Item List Page Type/Template(s) on your website. The Page Options allow you to control the layout and product that show on this Page Type/Template(s).
To get started login to your site's Admin.
Creating A Unique Product Page
You can utilize the 'Item List' Page Type/Template to create your own landing pages for specific sets of product. Some examples would be On Sale, Holiday Specials, What's New, and so on.
To Create A Unique Product Page
- Navigate to Content > Pages
- Click "Add Page" in the top-right
- From the "Page Type/Template' drop-down select 'Item List'. Instead of scrolling to find it, click the drop-down then start typing "item list" - when it comes up, click on it.
- Fill out the rest of the required fields - only bold fields are required.
- Click "Save & Continue Editing"
- Click "Edit Options"
Here you can set both the layout options but also select from Brands, Collections (within Brands), Item Types, Styles, Materials and Categories to narrow down to the product you wish to display.
- Apply your category or categories to generate the product you want on the page.
Keep in mind the more categories you apply here, the more narrowed-down your product will be. It is very possible to apply enough categories to give you a result of no product. If the categories you apply here are not in the product details of the items themselves, the product will not display on the page. It will only draw product that has all categories you're selecting here.
Scenario: Let's say I select 'Triton' as a brand, 'men's wedding bands' as a category and 'ceramic' as a material. I save my work, go to this page on the front-end of the website, and it displays no product. What could be the issue? Well, I know for a fact I have Triton on my website so it can't be that category... so either the specific item type of 'men's wedding bands' is not tied to a single Triton item on my site or there are no 'ceramic' (material) bands. Hopefully that makes sense. If you apply too many filters and no product is showing on a page you've created, take a few of the categories away and then one-by-one add them back in to figure out which category is the culprit, or look at the product itself to see which categories are within the product details.
