Maximum Control with Copy & Paste Code
This course contains 5 new Magento static blocks for maximum control over your fully integrated WordPress blog.
One at the top of the blog, one at the bottom, two in the sidebars and one at the bottom of the blog posts. These will give you maximum control over your blog and this also means that you can use Magento based keywords & tags in these static blocks ( think featured products, brand sliders, banners etc… ) .
These extra blocks are not included with the FishPig extension, however we have created them and included them in this course especially for you.
Because they’re what we would need if this was our own blog we were integrating into Magento.
This course is exclusively available to UnderstandingE Premium members.
