Features

As SilverCart is a module for SilverStripe a SilverCart webshop can integrate seamlessly other SilverStripe modules like the blog and the forum module. Especially a well maintained blog provides a site with constantly refreshed content.

Search engines love fresh content and customers are more likely to visit a site that provides interesting news via a blog.
