Page Builder introduced a new content type for Magento 2 called Banner. However, it is unrelated to the banner functionality everyone got used to. What was previously called “Banner” in the Content menu now became “Dynamic Block.” While we’ve already explored simple blocks, also called CMS or static blocks, it is time to delve into the nature of their more sophisticated counterparts. Let’s see what Magento 2 dynamic blocks are and how to manage them.Continue Reading
In the following review, we describe one of the significant Magento 2 performance improvements. If you are not new to the platform, you might be familiar with Magento full page cache warmer extensions that improve the productivity of the FPC module. As for Magento 2, the highly effective cache type is available here by default, but there is still a problem with its usage. Cached pages may be deleted manually or after a particular period. As a result, the full page cache module doesn’t work as it should. For keeping the cached version always up to date, we recommend you to install Magento 2 full page cache crawler by Amasty. This tool will help you monitor cache statuses and warming up cache every time the procedure is required. As a result, your Magento 2 ecommerce website will provide visitors with much faster load speed. Continue Reading
A single Magento full page cache is not enough to leverage the full capacity of your FPC solution (if it is not PotatoCommerce FPC that includes warmer by default). It is necessary to add a full page warmer/crawler to the system. This was true in case of Magento 1, and, despite full page cache is now a part of Magento 2, nothing changed, since no Magento cache warmer is available on the platform by default. Therefore, we’d like to draw your attention to the best full page cache crawlers/warmers for Magento 2. Such extensions crawl your website to ensure that all its pages are fresh and load as fast as possible. As a result, visitors get the most relevant content at the highest possible speed.

Caching is among the most reliable tools for making every website faster, and Full Page Cache is the most effective sort of cache. Although Magento 2 contains this cache type, there is still an issue with frequently cleared cache data that happens when someone makes changes within your store, mainly to categories or product pages. Besides, the cache can be cleared by lifetime: usually, it happens every X hours. As a result, the default FPC solution doesn’t provide maximum performance. Luckily, you can easily solve this problem with the help of the Mirasvit Full Page Cache Warmer Magento 2 extension. The tool is designed to prevent your store from slowdowns caused by rare cache updating. The extension monitors pages of your ecommerce website and refreshes cache if it is cleared. Thus, all your visitors get the highest page load speed and the best user experience. Otherwise, the number of orders and your revenue might decrease since slow performance can lead to the disappointment of potential buyers. Continue Reading
