Imagine that you want to tell your customers about your company or explain your store’s returns policy. X-Cart does not provide special pages for those needs; however, it allows you to add your own pages using the same style as the rest of your store.

Before you get started with this task, make sure that you have the add-on Simple CMS installed and enabled. If not, install and activate it.

To add a new page to your X-Cart store:

  1. In your store’s Admin area, go to the Pages page (Content > Pages) and click the New page button.

  2. The form for creating a new page opens:

  3. Fill in the fields to provide information about the new page

    • Name: Specify the page name.

    • Enabled: Use the checkbox to enable/disable a page.

    • Clean URL: Specify a human-readable and SEO-friendly web address for the page. If left blank, the URL will be generated automatically.

    • Content: Add a page description or page content you need. Use the text editor facilities to embed images, tables, and videos into a page content if necessary.

    • Content page title: Specify the page title as it should display to customers. If left blank, X-Cart will use the page name as Page Title.

    • Meta keywords: Add keywords to describe a website's content shortly and concisely as important indicators to search engines. Use lower case and commas to separate values.

    • Meta description: Select the page meta description between autogenerated and custom. The default autogenerated meta description copies the page content. Custom meta description allows adjusting the default value the way you need.

    • Open Graph Image: Add an image to be used on the page preview when sharing a link in networks.

    • Open Graph meta tags: Select the Open Graph meta tags for the page between autogenerated and custom. The default autogenerated tags are based on the general page details. If you need to adjust the default set of tags, use the Custom option.

    • Show social buttons: If enabled, the page will embed the social share buttons enabled via the Go Social add-on.

  4. Click the Save or Save and close button at the bottom to save the changes.
    The page will be created.

Now, if you look at your store’s Pages list, you should be able to see the newly created page on the list:

If you want to include a link to this page into your store’s Primary or Footer menu, go to the Menus page (Content > Menus) and create a menu item for the respective menu with the link to this page.
