If you're not familiar with what a Product Detail Page (PDP) is, please read this article before continuing.
Managing your PDPs can be a bit challenging at first, but this article will help you quickly understand and master it.
First, go to your dashboard and click on "Builder" and then "Product Page". When you first open this page, you'll see a table with the product pages.
Let’s start with what we believe to be the foundation for everything in this section the layout target.
As explained in the article introducing the PDP, you can have multiple PDPs, each one applied to multiple products or collections. This is set by the "Layout Target". There are three different types of layout targets:
- Collections: After you create a PDP, you can apply it to a collection or multiple collections, automatically applying the "Collection" layout target. This is useful, for example, if you have a sustainable collection and you want to create a specific layout for the products in this collection with a more green layout promoting sustainability.
- Products: After you create a PDP, you can apply it to a product or multiple products, automatically applying the "Product" layout target. This is useful, for example, if you have a big product coming out and want to give it more highlight by creating a different layout for this specific product.
- Default Layout: If you look at your dashboard, you'll see one PDP already created with this target. This PDP cannot be deleted because, as the name suggests, it is the default state. Imagine the scenario where you create two PDPs and apply each one to only one collection. All of your other products still need a layout to be displayed in your app. This is where the default layout comes into action, being applied and making sure every product in your app always has a layout.
The "priority" is directly related to the "Layout Target" and determines which layout will be applied first.
You can change the priority of a PDP by dragging it using the icon on the left side of each row.
This is important because you can have multiple PDPs applied to a specific product, and the priority will decide which one is displayed. This can also come in handy in other situations. For example, if you want to stop using all your PDPs because they are outdated, you can simply update the PDP labeled as the "Default Layout" and then drag it to the top.
You also have additional actions to help manage your PDPs, such as:
- "Status" - You can set a PDP to inactive and it will immediately stop being used.
- "Clone" - Instead of starting from scratch, you can take advantage of previously built layouts.
- "Edit Name" - Give your PDPs a name for better organization in the long term.
- "Delete" - Delete outdated PDPs for better organization.
- "Filter" - You can filter your layouts by their layout target (product, collection).
These actions will help you to have better control and organization of your PDPs, you can use them to create, edit or delete them and make sure you always have the best PDPs for your products and collections.
