In this article, you will find out what options are available for creating your shop with the help of different layouts.
As described in our documentation about shopping experiences, Shopware 6 offers the possibility to create different layouts. This tutorial is about how you can make your shop diversified and interesting by using different category layouts.
In order to be able to assign layouts to the categories, they must first be created. To do this, go to Content > Shopping Experiences and create a new layout there. You can find the available options for creating a layout here.
In order to assign the layout to a category, first you have to go to the module that can be found under Catalogues > Categories.
There you will find the appearance of your selected category under the Layout tab. Under Assign Layout you can assign the layout you created in the Shopping Experiences. You can also switch directly to the Shopping Experiences editor by clicking on the Create New Layout button and create a completely new layout there.
As soon as you have selected a layout, all segments of the selected shopping experiences are displayed in the Layout area. Initially, the content of the layout is displayed like block groups. The type and number of blocks vary depending on the layout. Here you have the option of directly adjusting the content to be displayed without having to switch to the shopping experiences and create a separate category page for each category.
Assign the same layout with different content
If you have created a layout that should be seen in several landing pages with different content, you can duplicate and customize it.
To do this, go to Content → Shopping Experiences and click on the three dots at the desired layout and then on "Duplicate".
Now you have an exact copy of your previously created layout, which you can modify and assign as desired.
