Shopware CMS is an integrated content management system that was developed specifically for Shopware and can be managed directly from the internal interface of Shopware.
One of the most significant innovations was the developers’ refusal to use the software module for IonCube encryption. Thanks to this, the German CMS has successfully moved to the category of open source software.
In the standard, you can rely on more than 20 pre-configured content items to create pages. Here are the available standard content items available: text with images, banners, sliders and tables, as well as items such as a list of products, forms, tab names or Google Maps.
In addition, new elements of content can be created, via the Backend. Here you save your own configuration fields defined by the administration and the HTML template.
In addition to moving to the Open Source category, the updated ShopWare platform, which is already available for download, also boasts a host of additional features. New features are the result of a thorough study of the wishes and suggestions of web developers and online store owners.
In particular, the German CMS has the functions of the Shopping Advisor, which allows you to create questionnaires for customer inquiries to determine their wishes. While another fresh feature called Custom Products allows customers to easily create a variety of individualized products: from a knitted product with unique printing to an engraved ring with an engraved date.
Advantages of ShopWare CMS in comparison with other CMS for creating an online store:
- There are no fixed grid sizes and thus more freedom in design
- Handling new and existing pages without affecting (Storefront Management integrated version)
- Attachment of content elements (for example, in the header of the form tab)
- Extend existing and create a new content item directly from the internal interface
- Live preview function from the device to the simulation size (live update after saving)
To date, CMS ShopWare, which is suitable for customers of any size, installed more than 54 thousand times. Users also downloaded about 2,000 plug-ins.
