Basic setup

In this tutorial we would like to show you to which points you should pay attention when setting up Shopware 6, because during the installation no information pages such as terms and conditions, privacy, etc. are created.


The structure of the footer and service menus is mapped in Shopware 6 through the category structure.
You can create your own substructure within the category tree and assign it to the menus.
We will explain this step by step below.

Create a category structure

 

First create the categories you want to use in the menus.
This could look like this:
 


When creating the category structure for the menus, please note that each individual menu item (e.g. terms and conditions, imprint) represents a separate category.

A new category can be created using the  "..." button in the context menu. When you open the context menu, you have to click on new category after for the category "Footernavigation". Next, open the context menu of the category you just created and click on the option new subcategory. In our example we have called this "Shopservice". Now you have to create the subcategories for your different pages in the footer. To do this, click on the option new subcategory in the context menu of the category "Shopservice". Now you can create as many subcategories as you need and name them. Remember also to activate the newly created categories.

To learn how to create and manage categories, please read the article categories.

Create and assign shopping experiences

 

In order to fill the individual pages with content, you assign a layout created in the experience worlds to the category. This layout should be of the shop page type, as it does not contain a listing or the shopping cart area of a product detail page.
About the shopping experiences you are completely free in the design of the shop pages.
So you can either use the same layout for all pages and then maintain the content in the respective category or you create an individual layout for each shop page.

You can find out how to create corresponding pages in the shopping experiences in the article Shopping Experiences​​

Then you assign the created layout to the respective category under Layout assignment (1).
Alternatively you can also open the layout editor of the shopping experiences directly to create a new layout (2).


 

Assigning navigation points to the sales channel

 

To ensure that the menus are also displayed in the frontend, you must select the menus as entry points for the respective menus.
This is done in the settings for the relevant sales channel in the Navigation area. The structure in the footer is defined via the entry point footer navigation. In deviation from this, a separate menu can be used for the service navigation (in the standard top right corner above the button for the customer account).

In the footer, the menus are displayed in 3 columns, with the first entry being the service hotline.
You can customize the data by using the text modules footer.serviceHotlineHeadline and footer.serviceHotline.

If you include more than 2 own columns in the footer, an additional row will be added.

 



 


 

   


In order to provide the links to the shipping costs on product detail pages (1), the privacy in the registration form (2) or the terms and conditions and revocation notice in the checkout (3 and 4), the following steps are necessar:

Create shop pages

 

First create under Contents > Shopping Experiences corresponding shop pages for terms and conditions, revocation notice, shipping and payment information and privacy. Information on how to use the editor can be found in the article Shopping Experiences​​.
If applicable, you can also use pages that you have already created for the footer..

Assign shop pages

 

Then you can assign the created pages under Settings > Basic information in the section shop pages.
