With Pages, you can create, edit, and manage content pages in your marketplace directly from Console. Pages lets you create and review content changes in development mode before making them available in your live marketplace.

What you can do with Pages

With Pages, you can create and edit content pages in Sharetribe. Landing pages, About pages, FAQs, or blog posts are all examples of content pages created by you, the marketplace operator.

On content pages, you can provide information about how your marketplace works. You can also use Pages to create alternative landing pages for different user groups, for search engine optimization (SEO) or paid advertising purposes, or even create a simple blog.

Any Sharetribe marketplace starts with four default pages: an About page, the Landing page, Privacy policy, and Terms of service. Pages lets you edit these default pages, but, with the exception of the About Page, they cannot be removed. In addition to the default pages, you can add and edit any number of custom content pages.

How Pages works

Find Pages in Console in Content > Pages. You test in Console's Test environment or use it to create your content after setting up your own marketplace.

Each content page is built using a combination of sections and blocks. Sections define the different content areas and their layout. Blocks contain the information presented in a section. Blocks are made up of multiple different types of content, like text, YouTube videos or images.

The content you create displays in your marketplace frontend. It is laid out using the default Sharetribe design. If you want your content to follow a different design, a developer can modify your layout.

While you're building your marketplace, use Pages in the Test environment to create your content.

When your marketplace live to users, you should continue to use the Test environment to make changes to your published marketplace content and preview how they look in your Test marketplace. When ready, you copy the finished changes from your Test environment to your Live environment.

An example carousel section from the starting Landing page. The default code of the marketplace application renders carousels and all content created using Pages following a standard design. Developers can change this design anytime.
