Magenerds_PageDesigner

This extension facilitates the cms editing process in your store. Instead of just a wysiwyg editor you now have a drag and drop editor to layout your blocks.

Extension configuration

The extension can be configured if you go to Stores > Configuration and afterwards to Magenerds > Page Designer.

System configuration

  • CSS Classes (for columns): A comma separated list of pre defined css classes which the cms editor can choose from. The default class pd-highlight is just a dummy class and does nothing. It is important that a developer has to include the css classes into the theme before using them.
  • CSS Classes (for rows): A comma separated list of pre defined css classes which the cms editor can choose from. The default class pd-highlight is just a dummy class and does nothing. It is important that a developer has to include the css classes into the theme before using them.

How to use
