PageBuilder - General Overview

PageBuilder, released with version 10.05.00, allows users to create webpages, even websites, without the need to write HTML code. This allows users to keep their storefront, as well as other pages, fresh with relevant content.

With PageBuilder, non-technical users can configure page components and layouts, modify and reuse existing designs and apply site-wide settings. It allows users to create unique marketing messages and shopping experiences, even scheduling components within pages for time-based messaging.

Miva's PageBuilder allows you to work more efficiently by reusing pages, layouts and components throughout the year. For example, you could create a holiday sale banner that you could use each year at the same time, and create variations on the banner for other holidays.


For information on upgrading to PageBuilder and any template changes you may need to make, view the Upgrading to PageBuilder help doc and video.
