Is there documentation or a Merchant Guide somewhere for AC9. Coming from AC7 a lot of things look significantly different. Need a way to understand the architecture and admin interfaces. For instance, I'm having difficulty figuring out how to show a list of webpages within a category.

So far as I can tell, the documentation is still a work in progress. I might be able to help if you let me know what route you follow in AC7 to accomplish what you want- I can't tell from your post. I am able to view and add webpages under Catalog-->Categories

With the exception of the new Content Management System, things are very similar to Gold.

I'm able to add webpages just fine. It is a matter of displaying them within the category. We are currently utilizing AC7. For that, we would create a custom control library and include it in the Scriptlets using the [[Conlib:ControlName]] notation. In AC9 it appears to be a different process. Just need to figure out how it is all structured.

Hello,

I have some information which explains how webpages can be shown within the Catalog.

1. Create a new Category for your content/web pages, and assign the Inner Template "Article Listing".
2. Create a few webpages within this category, and assign the Outer Template "Blog" to each of them.

* Content pages can be created while you are within the Catalog, or you can create them by going to the Website > Content Pages menu. If the latter, then make sure you assign the page to the category created in step. 1.

* Additional content that is used to display your webpage includes: a catalog-sized image, publish date, author, and a summary description. Most of this information is available from the 'Catalog' tab while you are editing the content page.

There is a new feature available from the Configure > Store > General page. It is in the Search Settings section. You can check the box for "Search All Content" to have the content pages included in the search query. If there are matching results, a "Search Articles" link will appear. However, it appears to be broken in my install right now.

The documentation is a work in progress. This area is currently the one we are working on now.

Thanks,
Katie
