Basic functions of the content registry

All contents of the website are managed within the content registry. The registry is your content repository tree, where each and every content should exist only once for every locale. The content registry is organised in so-called bundles and locales.

Functions

edit content button Edit a content Opens a new tab with editing options for the content
delete content button Delete content Deletes the selected content
create content button Create new content Creates a new content as a child of the current node

Bundles

A bundle represents a part of the website's software which provides a set of special contents. In the default configuration you should have four bundles:

  • CMS: The website’s content management system. All standard content pages (such as articles etc.) of the website are managed within this bundle.
  • Store: A product catalogue.
  • Shop: The website’s online shop and its products.
  • Core: Contains filter-contents and other special contents such as file- or url- contents.

Each bundle is divided into subsections by the website’s locales, which contain the actual contents for that locale.

Locales

A locale stands for a combination of language and country. This is necessary to map the various combinations possible, with the first two letters representing the language and the last two, separated by an underscore, representing the country. For example, if you want to build a website for Switzerland, you will need 3 locales for each of the official languages there, which would be de_CH, fr_CH and it_CH, while if your website was for the USA, you would have only one locale named en_US.

Folders

As a further grouping tool, you can create folders within each locale according to your needs. Creating a folder works the same way as creating any other content within the content registry.

Creating new content/folders

Click on the ‘new content’ button and fill in a name/headline for your content/folder, when prompted. Then click on the button corresponding to the item you want to create, e.g. CMS content if you want to create a CMS content. For further editing instructions, see the manual section on the particular content:

Deleting content from the content registry

Click on the ‘delete content’ button next to the content in question. Confirm the process when prompted.

Rearranging contents

You can simply drag and drop contents and folders to wherever you like to. There is only one restriction: you cannot move them across locales. If you do want to move content from one locale to another, please use the ‘copy content function’.

A full description of the content registry and its function can be found in the chapter “The content registry”.
