Of all Prestashop features, static blocks are the most useful for your front end. BelVG Prestashop Static Blocks module helps you enhance your store and update it easily. Easy-to-use WYSIWYG editor allows creating any content including text, pictures, links, videos and other media.

Limitations of how you can use these blocks are only imposed by the admin’s imagination – discount banners and coupons, policies and store info, video advertising and much more. Manage blocks in the back-office – enable and disable, add new and edit the existing ones. Handling regularly updated content has never been easier!

In the demo, navigate to Modules –> Belvg Static Blocks.
