XM Pages is organized into three sections.  Click on the tabs within the Pages module to view the pages and page types that you've created. The numbers next to the tab titles indicate the object count within each section.

  • All Pages: List of all non-archived pages; this is the default tab
  • Page types: List of all active page types
  • Archived: Pages and page versions that are not currently active.  These pages will not go live, even if they are scheduled

Use the Search field to quickly find a particular Page or Page Type.  Search results will be applied across all tabs.

Use the Filter by dropdown to limit pages shown based on Page Type. The filter is only applied to pages or in the All Pages tab.

The first step in creating a Page in XM is defining the Page Type.  Page Types help organize your content and its prefix can be used for dynamic routing on the commerce front-end.  Page Types segregate similar pages in a common Page Type folder. 

Once you have a Page Type, you can create a Page.  The Pages you build in XM Editor can be published to Storefront to create digital experiences for your customer.
