Manually Creating a Thematic Page

In addition to the auto-generated Thematic Pages, you can manually create your own Thematic Page and apply any type of merchandising capabilities that you need. 

How do I find the pages I created?
Go to the All Pages section, then use the Columns menu to display the Created By column.

To manually create a new Thematic Page, 

  1. Click Create Page and enter a theme name. This brings up the Product Grid Editor. You can now edit the page or add merchandising rules like boost, bury, etc. 

The Bloomreach algorithm will attempt to populate the Product Grid with matching products based on the theme name you enter. However, if Bloomreach cannot identify the products or attributes, we will not be able to match products to the theme automatically. In that case, you can edit the Thematic Page by manually adding or removing products as explained in the following section. 

To learn more about how Bloomreach matches products to a manually created Thematic Page, click here.
