Introduction to the Webshop and CMS Module in Standard ERP

The Webshop and CMS module allows you to build a website that you can control from Standard ERP. As well as static web pages (web pages containing text and images), the website can include a webshop that will be connected to the Order and Invoice registers and that can use up-to-date stock levels to determine whether Items are available for purchase. When Customers place orders through the webshop, an Order or Invoice will be created immediately and without any intervention, so the only additional processing necessary will be to deliver the Items. You can also allow Customers to view their Orders and Invoices online. The CMS (Content Management System) portion of the module allows you to add a newsfeed or blog to the website.

You will have full control over the appearance of the website as you will be able to incorporate your own CSS and JavaScript. Some pages will include sections that are constructed for you (for example, Product listings in the webshop), but these sections will be divided into <divs> with fixed classes or IDs that you will be able use to control their appearance through your CSS.

This documentation will describe the Webshop and CMS module in Standard ERP, but it will not describe HTML or CSS coding. The example web pages shown in the illustrations include some CSS formatting controlled using built-in <div> classes or IDs and some using <div> classes or IDs that can be added by any user in Standard ERP: the various <div> classes or IDs will be explained under each illustration.

The Home Page option on the 'Technical' card in the Configuration setting in the System module must be selected for the Webshop and CMS module to be activated.
