Dynamicweb 8 Manual

Dynamicweb is a feature rich All-in-One platform which allows you to build great websites – and to keep all your data in one place and on one platform.

With Dynamicweb you can:

  • Create and manage content – websites, language layers, pages and paragraphs – or exploit the power of items
  • Use the full power of Dynamicweb Ecommerce to work with variants, parts-lists, multiple shops, languages and currencies, and much more
  • Reach out to your customers using the Dynamicweb Marketing tools – Leads, Email Marketing, Personalization and more – using data collected in your shop and on your website
  • Handle and organize all of your users in groups, setup permissions, and use smart searches to create dynamic user groups based on on-site behavior and more
  • Explore central platform features such as indexing, the file manager and the Image Handler tool
  • Get acquainted with the extensive integration options at your fingertips with the Data Integration module and the Integration Framework

And much more!

Please note that this website is only updated sporadically, as focus has moved on to the Dynamicweb 9 branch. You can still use the manual, but we cannot guarantee that everything will be up to date.

Dynamicweb has a lot of documentation – at a lot of different levels - and a high-level overview will help you find what you’re looking for!

Use the top-level navigation (Figure 3.1) to find the documentation for the main areas of Dynamicweb; Content, Ecommerce, Marketing, Users, Platform and Integration.

Figure 3.1 The top-level navigation lets you select an area

Then use the left-side navigation to select a documentation article for a particular area – and the bootstrapesque right-side navigation to locate the right information (Figure 3.2).

Basically, the documentation consists of two types of articles:

  • Feature articles describe a feature in general terms – and in full detail. A feature article is divided into sections – basic, implementing, developing, database and integrating – which roughly correspond to the type of information you may be looking for
  • How-to articles are step-by-step instructions for accomplishing a particular task, but which will generally leave our non-critical details or show a simplified setup

For an example of a feature article, please see the article on Working with Items.

If you would like to see an example of a how-to article, check out e.g. Setting up a Google Merchant Product Feed.
