Thanks for choosing KILB Greeting Cards Pro!
Step 1: Install plugin in Shopware plugin manager and activate it
After you bought the plugin in the Shopware store or you demanded the testing version, go to configuration > Plugin Manager > My purchases. Download the plugin, switch to Installed and install the plugin:
- Click the green plus icon to install the plugin
- Click the red X icon to active the plugin
You will be asked to clear the shopware cache and recreate the theme. Please execute these operations.
Step 2: Configure the plugin
After you've successfully installed the plugin, click the pencil icon in the plugin manager in the line of the installed plugin. In the opening dialog scroll down and decide if you want to allow multiple greeting cards per basket/order or not.
Step 3: Create category for greeting cards
All the greeting cards you like to integrate into the plugin need to be assigned to a specific category.
- In the backend click Items > Categories
- Create inside your language category (e.g.: Shopware > English) a new category "Greeting Cards"
- Make sure the new category is not active. The plugin will still find and use it. Keeping the category inactive will prevent Shopware to show this category in the frontend.
Step 4: Assign greeting card category
To inform the plugin what category should be used for searching for categories assign the category like this:
- In the backend go to Configuration > Basic Settings > Shop settings > Shops
- In the list click the small, green plus icon near the shop you like to offer greeting cards
- Choose the newly created category in Greeting Card, Category
Step 5: Create greeting card articles
Now you can create articles for greeting cards the usual way (Items > Create). Assign these new articles to your newly created greeting card category. Make sure that every greeting card has defined a price, an image and a stock. The thumbnail of the article will be the preview for the greeting card. Make sure the greeting card article is active.
If you like you can alsochange the maximum text length and maximum amount of lines here.
Optional - Step 6: Create sub categories (Easter, Christmas etc.)
In the backend open Artikel > Kategorien.
Create new sub categories inside your previously created greeting card category. Assign your greeting cards to these sub categories instead.
ℹ️Make sure the sub categories are set to inactive.
Previous category structure:
Shopware > English > Greeting Cards > Your greeting card articles
New category structure:
Shopware > English > Greeting Cards > Christmas > Your Christmas greeting card articles
Shopware > English > Greeting Cards > Easter > Your Easter greeting card articles
Shopware > English > Greeting Cards > ... > Your ... greeting cards articles
ℹ️Don't create sub-sub categories inside these sub categories (like "Shopware > English > Greeting Cards > Christmas > 2019 > greeting card articles). The plugin just supports one level of categories.
Optional - Step 7: Adjust URLS
You can and should adjust the default URLs of the plugin (like /kilbGreetingCards/index, /kilbGreetingCards/addText and /kilbGreetingCards/updateText) to better readable ones.
- Go to Configuration > Basic settings > Frontend > SEO / router settings
- Add the following lines into the field "Other SEO URLs"
Afterwards click save and clear the Shopware cache.
ℹ️You can define the bold part the way you like.
Can I prevent that Shopware will list my greeting cards in search results, category pages etc.?
The greeting card plugin works perfectly together with this plugin:
https://store.shopware.com/kilb450130272419/kilb-artikel-verbergen-aktive-artikel-im-frontend-verstecken.htmlThis will hide articles in the Frontend. If you already bought the greeting card designer we will make you an offer to get this plugin cheaper.
