How to create a non-ecommerce product browser on my site?

Hi their Community X!

I new to editor X and it has been quite the journey so far, currently I’m working on a lighting website and I don’t know how to go about creating a product browser without the purchasing/store function. I plan to have it so you can scroll through different lights with the ability to filter and categories products into different groups.

The website below is the system I’m looking for, but it is just a matter of execution.

Thank you for any help, suggestions or advice!
Very Much Appreciated.

@arch-jrgs It sounds like you need to work with (and understand) the following components. You can read about each one of them in Help or in tutorials.

  1. A collection. Create a collection (a database table) in which you’ll store all the information about each product, including images.

  2. A repeater. To provide the ‘browser’ capability, you’ll add a repeater to your page.

  3. A dataset. Datasets are the mechanism that connect collections to repeaters. On the page with the repeater, you’ll add a dataset that defines such things as which collection are you using; whether you want to filter the records; and the order in which you want them sorted.

  4. Dynamic pages . Dynamic pages use collections and datasets to present item browsers and item detail pages – as well as automatically linking the two.

My apologies if I’m telling you things you already know, but your question was very general, so I’m guessing you’re not really familiar with these things. If I’m wrong – or if you need more help – come back with some more specific questions.

@jim75924 Thanks Jim! I’ll have a look at their YouTube tutorials and perhaps create a test website to do some testing with their components and get the gist of the Editor X system. Thanks you much, this was the advice I was looking for–just didn’t know where to start.

Creating a non-e-commerce product browser on your lighting website sounds like a cool project. To achieve that, you can utilize editor X’s features like galleries or repeaters to showcase different lights. You can add filter and categorization options using tags or custom fields. It’s all about organizing and presenting your products effectively.
If you want to migrate magento 1 to magento 2 , it’s worth exploring the benefits and features it offers. The migration process can be a bit challenging, but it can bring enhancements to your website’s performance and functionality.
