PageTypes CMS v2.9 has been released. Based on our clients' feedback and new customers' requirements we have developed a bunch of new useful features and some old functionality improvements. So here it comes the new PageTypes version 2.9.

What's new in PageTypes CMS 2.9

  • Public User profile has been designed for blog users where the profile displays all user posts. The user may also create several addresses in his profile where each address can be used later in the ecommerce as a shipping destination. The address information is private and it is not displayed for the public.
  • Input templates and Group templates in the Form Builder page type. You can now create and save Inputs and Groups of Inputs as templates. You may also save the templates including the value data for inputs like dropdowns, radio groups, auto-completes etc. The templates can be used later when building public website forms.   
  • Page and Item content printing and emailing. Continuing with the social networking and online collaboration tools we have added print and send email buttons to your pages and items so the website visitors can easily share your content.

Your PageTypes website may have different layouts of your choice. Layouts are based on content and side bar combinations. Each page can be attached to a layout and also each page type can be attached to layout. Attaching a page type to a layout means all the pages of this type will use the attached layout.

The layout also determines which page modules will be displayed in the middle bar or side bars. You can attach any page module in the middle bar or side bar. You are also able to change the modules position.

Each page can be attached to a menu. There is no limitation how many times a page will appear on the menu i.e. a page can be attached to the menu several times and in different positions.

Paging structure

The basic unit we use for content presentation is the “page”. Depending on how you wish to input and place your content we provide a selection of distinct page types which determines the functionality of your presentation.

Page Elements

URL alias. The URL alias is unique page identifier which is used in URL construction.

Page Content. Page Content takes central place on your website. The administrator creates the content using the HTML editor.

Page Items. Depending on page type you have chosen the page items may represent different predefined structure, logic or workflow.

“Quick Access Module” a.k.a. the Module. Each page has a module. The module is designed to represent aspects of the page content and items. The page module can be connected to any other page layout where it will display the featured information allowing fast access to the page.
