Adding a Static Block to a Category Page in Magento 2

In default Magento 2, categories don’t contain many additional elements. You can change the way your category page looks using static blocks, and it’s not as difficult as it may seem at the beginning. In this article, I’ll explain to you how you can add CMS Static Blocks to category pages.

If by default, Magento 2 doesn’t have the blocks you need, you can check this article to find out how to create CMS Static Blocks.

So first of all, you need to decide to which category you would like to add the static block.

Let’s say, you want to add a static block to Home > Women > Tops category:

Then find the Women > Tops category.
