Build websites only with board tools

With the help of the Content/Contentmenu components it is easy for customers to prepare a simple set of pages to maintain their own content. Of course such a site focuses a little on the online shop 😉 but other tools like a CMS system can be saved.

Contents are stored in the content area – only the short name of the post has to follow a certain pattern to appear in the navigation. Post pages can also be used in the navigation (to be set in the PCG) as before.

In the standard template, the fastest way to go live with a shop, the corresponding components are already provided in the upper area and appear automatically if posts are available.

Posts can be written with the built-in HTML editor or in Wiki syntax. The WebDesigner also keeps a little more influence over the style of the articles written by the customer.

Besides, text modules can be used in another post as variables.

Images proxy

Images in the shop are usually delivered via the built-in proxy. This mainly catches too large images, wrong data and image formats of the stored images.

Now you can – via the configuration of the components – also scale individual dimensions, e.g. using wide narrow banners in the header area of the articles.

More display options

In some places further data elements are provided, e.g. the basic prices in the list view, information about blocked orders or indications for picture errors or article notes. Usually these parts are built in as non-intrusively as possible to avoid interfering with designs. In the standard template, all new features are always included first.

Individual designs therefore sometimes have to be corrected manually. Maybe you have to look into the Trello every now and then.
