Pages - Managing Static Content

PrestaShop enables you to create content pages as easily as you would create product pages. You can add static pages in the top menu using the "Main menu" module (which you can configure from the "Modules" page), or anywhere with the "Link Widget" module.


If you have been using PrestaShop previous versions, pages and static content are what we used to call CMS (Content Management System).


This page presents you all the content pages that were previously created on your shop, for the currently selected page category (by default, the home page is the only category).


Do not forget to translate each page for each of your supported languages! As usual, click on the language selector for each field in order to change the language.

Creating a new page category

Click the "Add new page category" button to create a page category – actually, a sub-category of the root category, "Home". You can create as many categories as needed.



The form is quite basic:

When you save the category, PrestaShop takes you back to the tables, this time using the newly created category as its base. Therefore, you will not see any sub-category or sub-pages in here unless you create some. In order to go back to the root category, click on "Home" at the top left side. You can then edit each page from the root category and move them into your newly created category if you feel like it, or create a new page to go with your new category.


In order to create sub-categories, simply change the "Parent category" option from "Home" to the wanted parent category for the category you are creating.

Creating a new page

New since PrestaShop 1.7.6! You can now benefit from the dynamic preview of your search engine results.

Click the "Add new page" button to reach the page creation form:

Once all the fields are filled out, click "Save." If activated, you can then view the result directly on your online shop.
