Moving an existing page to ProductCart's Content Management System

Why using ProductCart's "Content Pages"

ProductCart contains a simple Content Management System. See Content Pages overview for more information about this set of features, which were substantially enriched in ProductCart v4. Using these features will allow a merchant to manage non-catalog pages (e.g. privacy policy, contact information, “About Us”, etc.) through the ProductCart Control Panel.

How to "move" an existing page to ProductCart

To move an existing page (e.g. “AboutUs.asp”) to ProductCart's CMS features:

  1. Recreate the page in ProductCart. In v4, you can review it and edit it until you are satisfied with it, without the page being available to the general public.
  2. Replace the existing page:
    1. If it's a dynamic page, use a 301 Redirect to let search engines know that the page has moved. Visitors will instantly be redirected and won't notice any difference. In ASP, a 301 Redirect looks as follows (change the path to the destination file):
      Response.Status = "301 Moved Permanently" 
      Response.AddHeader "Location", "productcart/pc/viewcontent.asp?idpage=1"

    2. If it's a static page (*.htm, *.html;), edit the page with text that explains that the page has been moved and a link to the new page. Visitors will not be instantly redirected, but they'll simply click on the link to the new page. Search engines will follow that link as well.
