Groups are useful as they help you to organise your products and automatically add products into groups to show off your products to your customers.
This section is split into two pages. The first page is the home page where you can quickly see all of your groups in the grid. The second page is the edit page where you can view each group in more detail.
Search Bar and Filters
The search bar and filters section is where you can search for specific groups or only show certain groups based on their tags.
The grid section shows all your groups currently in Shopblocks. You can click on an individual group to go to it’s edit page.
You can also select multiple categories using the checkboxes to perform any bulk edit actions.
The name field is where you can set or amend the name of this group. This is the name that the customer will see in your shop.
The short description field is where you can quickly describe this group. Whatever you type here will be shown on search engines underneath the group title (take a look at the Search Engine Listing section for an example of how this will look).
The long description field is where you can enter in more detail for this group. For example you could explain it’s purpose and why specific products are in this group.
The rules section is the most important part of the group-edit screen since it’s here where you define which products go into this group. If you need a refresher on how the rules system works then take a look at our rules guide. The results of your rules are output below. If you make changes to your rules you will need to press Preview products to refresh products output.
Search Engine Listing
The Search Engine Listing section is a preview of how your data will be displayed on search engines such as Google and Bing. This section is automatically filled out once the name and short description fields have been completed, however you can change the search engine fields manually if you wish.
The visibility and status of each group can be changed within the Visibility section.
If Active is checked then this group is selectable when creating and editing products. If the group is not set to active then this group will not show up in the group section of the products edit page.
If Visible in Shop is checked then this brand will be show on your shop to your customers. If it is not checked then your customers will not be able to see it.
You can add a group image to each group by using the Open Image Library button.
An unlimited number of tags can be added to each group to help you organise your shop.
