Hi guys! Today we have some awesome news to share with you — we got a new Magento 2 professional developer on our team!
We continue our certification streak with another Magento 2 certified professional developer on our team. Dmitriy Pakhunov gets ahead of the game with a freshly obtained Magento 2 Professional Developer certificate.
You can hardly overestimate the importance of PHP in today’s world of software development. It is powerful enough to be at the core of the biggest blogging system on the web (WordPress) and deep enough to run the largest social network (Facebook). PHP is an open source language, meaning that you don’t need a license to develop with it. However, PHP is quite complex, so you might need a certificate to confirm your skills.
Default Magento 2 functionality allows only logged-in visitors to create and save their wish lists. However, popping register/login windows usually irritate users and make them leave the website. The BelVG team has developed the Guest Wish List extension for guest users to be able to add items to their wish lists equally with registered customers.
Magento is one of the most popular open source ecommerce platforms, which provides online merchants with all kinds of tools to manage the look, content and functionality of their webstore. Moreover, it has a convenient and pretty intuitive Admin page, which makes it possible for store administrators to maintain the website without technical knowledge and web developers on the team.
Sometimes you may need to hide some products or even whole categories from specific groups of customers on your webstore.
The new Groups Catalog extension allows shop owners to configure product visibility settings for various client groups: retailers, wholesalers or any other customer group that you may have on your webshop. It also lets you tacitly stimulate your new visitors to create an account on your webstore.
Post-office box is a convenient tool, which allows its holders to keep their mail in a numbered box at a post office until needed. However, some companies don’t ship to PO boxes for various reasons: either due to fraud prevention or to a small size of PO boxes, which usually can’t contain anything larger than a couple of magazines. For this purpose, we have created the PO Box extension allowing to forbid shipping to post-office boxes.
We go on learning the tools found under Content > Design > Configuration on Magento 2 Admin page. In this part we are going to talk about Search Engine Robots, Pagination, Product Image Watermarks and Transactional Emails. Check out Part 1 if you haven’t seen it yet, it contains some useful information on configuring the header and the footer of your site, adding a favicon and customizing the webstore’s theme.
We continue exploring the latest version of the most popular ecommerce platform. Today we are going to learn how to take care of a few simple design tasks via Admin panel, like changing the logo, uploading a favicon, updating the information in the header and the footer of your webstore, turn on and off the store demo notice and some others. There is pretty much material to be covered, so we decided to split it into a few articles, this one being part 1 of the series. Without further ado, let us get down to work.
The success of an online store depends on dozens, if not hundreds of little details. You never know what piece of information displayed on the product page will play the ultimate role in shaping customer’s opinion about the products on sale. That is why it always makes sense to provide as much product information as possible, without cluttering a page and losing its sleek look.
