Links configuration between CMS platform and Magento

Hi Magento Expert,

 

Am new to Magento so please help me to understand below use case

 

Use case

 

CMS Platform - Adobe Experience Manager (AEM)

Web-server - Apache 2.2

eCommerce Platform - Magento

 

In our case, some of the pages(ex. homepage) are managed in AEM and some of the pages (ex. product detail) are managed in eCommerce. In homepage we have top navigation where in one section we have configured product title & url(ex. Product detail page which is managed in Magento) and some other page title & url (ex Article page which is managed in AEM). So when user click product title then he should navigate to product detail page and when user click on article title he should navigate to Article page which is hosted in AEM. What is the best approach to implement this use case over web server  ?

 

Thanks,

Kunal

Hi @Kunal1984,

 

I think the best approch would be to have "subdomain or /shop" installation of Magento, and keep e-commerce "seperate" from the main site.

 

So that AEM would control the entire site, and then use the Magento for the shopping part, and have your webcompany integrate this way.

Dear KentChr_DK,

Thanks a ton for your support.

Few information more required based on your suggestion.

As you mentioned that have "subdomain or /shop" installation of Magento,
and keep e-commerce "seperate" from the main site.

Can you describe more in detailed how to acheive above steps.

Appreciate your guidance.

Thanks!

Hi @Kunal1984,

 

Let me try to explain a little more Smiley Happy

 

First I would have your webcompany setup the main site (all content, images, videos, etc) like a normal company homepage, the URL could be anything - let's assume it is https://www.my-company.com

 

Then I would do one of the following 

a) A subdomain after the trailingslash like this: https://www.my-company.com/shop

b) A subdomain before like this: https://shop.my-company.com 

 

If A or B would be better, you will have to talk to your webcompany and also a SEO company, so you will be able to choose the best solution for your needs.

 

After this have been decided, then your webcompany should make a installation of Magento in the choosen subdomain.

 

After installation and setup is made, the webcompany has to match the design (of magento) to you main site.. Change colors, fonts and feelings.

 

So summa summarum your will have 2 seperate installation using this method, one unique for your content and one for your site.

 

This way you will also be able to update / develop individual on each setup Smiley Happy

 

Pls note: 

Magento is a heavy platform, and will need high server/hosting ressource, so please don't use low-budget / shared hosting if your plan for e-commerce success.

 

Let me know, if this gives any problems / questions.
