Create a Content Asset

You can create content assets that include text, images, and links via URLs. You can also import content assets from external sources. See Content Asset Types.

  1. Select site > Merchant Tools > Content > Content Assets > New.

    If you see unavailable fields, you have read-only permission. You can browse libraries, search for content assets, and read content asset data. But you can't modify data in these modules. If you have mixed permission to access one module (via different roles), the higher-level access is granted. See your administrator if you require write access.

    Libraries, library folders, and content assets are organized in a hierarchy. The hierarchy prescribes that roles with Read or Write access for libraries, library folders, and content assets require the same access level.

  2. On the New Content Asset page, enter information about your content asset.
    You can view your content asset in the source or HTML editor.
  3. Enter the content in the source editor in HTML format or use the HTML editor.
    Here is an example of the 404-banner content asset:

    We’re Sorry...<br /> We seem to have misplaced this page result in an unfortunate error: (Page or File Not Found: 404 error), Feel free to use the search to assist you in finding what you were looking for.

    When you insert an image into HTML text, the editor uses the width/height attribute of the image tag, for example:

    <p><img alt="" src="testimage 100x100.jpg?$staticlink$" style="width: 100px; height: 100px;" /></p>

    When creating a "page" URL, enter the product SKU, category ID of a category in the storefront catalog, or content asset ID of an asset in the site library respectively. The system automatically generates the appropriate URL.
    For keyword search URLs, when you enter a search phrase such as Denim Shirts, the editor inserts a link such as the following into the HTML: <a href="$url('Search-Show','q','Denim Shirts')$">Denim Shirts</a>
  4. To assign the content asset to one or more folders, click the Folders tab.

    The folders that appear are already assigned to the content asset.

  5. To assign the content asset to other folders, click New.
  6. To preview the content asset in the storefront, click the preview icon .
  7. Click the Page Meta Tag Rules tab if you want to create or manage page meta tags.
