Site Management Tools

There are currently two supported versions of Site Management Tools. These are version 2 and version 3. One important difference between the two versions is the features that are available in each and native compatibility with different versions of SuiteCommerce. By default, SuiteCommerce Kilimanjaro and greater use SMT version 3. Versions of SuiteCommerce prior to Kilimanjaro use SMT version 2.

The following table lists important SuiteCommerce features and version availability for each feature.

Determine Your Version of SMT

You can determine which version of SMT is enabled by inspecting the admin URL. The admin URL is displayed in your browser’s address bar when you are logged in to SMT. In the following URL, the number between /cms/ and /admin/ is 3. This indicates that SMT v3 is enabled on the site. If SMT v2 is enabled on the site, then this number would be 2.
