PageBuilder Upgrade Steps

The upgrade process for 10.05.00 performs the following steps for you automatically:

  1. 1. Installs the flex module and default components.
  2. 2. Creates the four default layouts with theme specific templates (Blank, Storefront, Marketing Layout 1, Marketing Layout 2).
    • If you’re using Shadows or Genesis, a Shadows- or Genesis-based template will be used.
    • If you’re using any other themes, a generic layout page template is created that is theme independent.
  3. 3. Installs required CSS and JS needed for the Page Builder Components to work.


The following Layouts are created for you automatically, which are used as starting points for creating new marketing pages: Blank, Storefront, Landing Page 1, Landing Page 2.
