Introduction

"Content Publishing" tab in Marketing module is intended to manage content blocks and define where, when and how it will be published (shown) on the site.

In Dynamic Content block we described how content of this kind is used and adjusted with help of Virto Commerce Manager. Content Publishing adjustment allows Commerce users to continue working with content without developers' assistance and apply chosen marketing strategy in the online shop.

Actions available in the block:

  1. Creating and editing publishing content groups.
  2. Duplicating content publishing items.
  3. Applying filters for content publishing items search;
  4. Defining content publishing properties (conditions of content publishing, content places and etc.)
  5. Deleting content publishing groups.

  • Description - full or brief description of content publishing;
  • Priority - define the priority of the item;
