Page versions

Page versions are the pages visible to end users. Page versions may have different statuses, different layouts, and they can be displayed only for specific locales.

Create a page version

To create a page version follow these steps:

  1. From the studio home page or from the left menu, go to Site builder.

  2. From the page folder list, select the page folder where you want to create the page version.

    Page versions cannot be moved between page folders. Make sure to select the right page folder before creating a page version.

  3. Click New, then select Create page version: the Create page version dialog opens.

  4. In the Page version name field, enter the name of the page version. Make sure to choose a relevant name so that it will be easy to find the page version in the future.

  1. From the Layout drop-down, select a layout or a page template.

  2. To display the page version for specific locales only, select the locale(s) from the Locale drop-down: the page version will be visible for all selected locales. Otherwise, leave the Locale field empty.

    To handle advanced filtering based on locale, enter a FECL expression in the Custom field.
    For example, to display the page version for all locales except de_CH, enter locale != "de_CH".
    From the Custom field, it is not possible to handle advanced filtering by host since filtering by host is a legacy feature. It is only supported for the previous version of the product (Frontastic), not for commercetools Frontend.

  3. To make the page version the default, select the checkbox.

  4. Click Save: the page builder opens.

  5. Click the back arrow to return to Site builder, you can find the page version in the Draft section.
