Please note, a new component has been introduced to the Git Dev/Master branch:
It supplants the old deprecated “cms” functionalities of the old applications/content component with a new and much more user-oriented design.
A reseed (e.g. ant clean-all load-demo) is needed to get the cms component seed data and the suite of default/demo templates and pages.
There are some further improvements/fixes pending, but the component is fully functional. It is by default plugged into the shop controller and web.xml filters, although previews are disabled on shop by default. If for some reason they cause an issue with your shop configuration, the web.xml and controller.xml additions in the above commit can simply be commented out to exclude the cms hooks.
The backend is accessible through: https://localhost:8443/cms
