Case Studies on how to:
WHY BLOG?

Who needs a blog? Well, pretty much everyone.

Are you a retailer of 20000 SKU household supplies? You can do product reviews, top 10 lists, comparisons, and how-to guides. This way, you will attract more customer attention to the products in your store.

Are you a custom furniture designer? Great! Show your studio, tell your customers about the types of raw materials you use, give some advice based on your working experience, and so on.

Regardless of how boring or exciting your products are, there is always a way to use a blog. It may act as a source of information or a source of fun, a way to introduce yourself to your customers - it really doesn't matter how, most customers will appreciate this form of communication.


SEO enhancements


  • XML sitemap

    All blog posts are listed in the sitemap.xml file making it easier for web crawlers to index post pages.

  • Meta data

    Every post has an adjustable meta title and description.

  • Canonical tags

    The Canonical URL option allows you to choose a canonical URL for a particular blog and add it as a canonical tag in order to avoid the duplicate content issue.

  • SEO-friendly URL's

    You can set up each post's URL manually. In addition, post URLs do not include categories, which facilitates the indexation of individual post pages.

  • URL configuration

    For SEO purposes, you can alter the structure of your URL’s by using them either with or without categories.



Blog posts


  • Disqus integration Screen

    A blog must be connected to the Disqus service in order to allow and manage comments. The Disqus integration also allows readers to leave comments using their social network profiles.

  • Recent posts widget

    Promotes the latest blog posts and serves as a convenient navigation tool.

  • Related products on post pages

    For cross-promotion purposes, any post can have related products blocks assigned.

  • Social media sharing options

    The extension supports the Open Graph and Twitter Cards markups.

  • Creating a post with a catchy look

    Use blog post images and the WYSIWYG editor with a standard set of necessary writing and editing tools, including product widgets, any types of media files, the Bluefoot feature (Magento Commerce), and rich text.

  • Content navigation

    The convenient sidebar allows navigating blog categories, tags, and recent posts.

  • Related Blog posts on the product pages

    The extension adds the 'Blog posts' tab to the product pages. Under the tab, customers can find all blog posts where the product was mentioned.

  • Integration with Advanced Search NEW!

    Blog is integrated with our Advanced Search extension, so your customers and visitors receive one more opportunity to find the blog posts they need using the on-site search functionality.



Migration to Magento 2


  • M1 > M2 migration tool

    The Magento Data Migration Tool allows moving blog posts from Magento 1 to Magento 2 stores and maintain the URL structure. The tool is included in the pack.

  • Wordpress > Magento 2 post migration

    If you have a WordPress blog and want to move it to your Magento 2 store, the extension offers a convenient way to migrate the posts. Read our documentation for more information.



Content management

    Design elements of the blog are taken from native Magento providing a seamless integration with your store.

  • Mass actions for posts

    Store owners can manage blog posts with mass actions.

  • Blog post viewing permissions

Simple to use

Simple to use and does exactly what it needs to do. One of the best features is picking your store views for the blog posts, so you can publish in different languages. It is also nice that you can easily organise your posts into categories and these are then added to your menu.

We have a big theme installed on our site and this integrated without any issues.

Really nice one

I prefer to use extensions from 1 developer thus upgrading store to Magento 2 decided to stick Aheadworks and have no regrets.
The code quality and support staff are awesome as always.

Nice module and Love the support

Compared with the other options available in market, Aheadworks is the best option with many useful and nice features. It includes almost everything a blog should have and it's easy to create the contents of the blog.
The thing I loved the most is the support. Support team was really nice, helpful and responded fast.

I will highly recommend Aheadworks.

Standard blog

Pretty much what you would expect from a blog. All elements are there, at least I personally don't miss anything. Except maybe a more convenient preview. The price is a bit much, but aheadworks is reliable and I'm paying for my product not to becoome abandoned and outdated as it so often happens..

Love this blog extension

I have had this blog extension on my Magento 1 site for a few years. I really like the format and ease of use of this blog, so when I built a new site on Magento 2 this was number 1 choice for a blog platform. I do weekly blogs with lots of photos and it always looks great. I love that I don't have to know lots of coding to make my blogs look professional. A great blog for a small business like mine!

Aheadworks were very helpful and responsive in the sale and installation of this product. I would recommend them highly!

I want to add SKU in product conditions. However, the extension will only allow me to add Category or Attribute Set. How can I add product SKUs?
To make SKU or name, or any other product attribute visible in conditions its "Use for Promo Rule Conditions" option should be enabled in:
admin -> Stores -> Attributes -> Product -> required attribute -> Storefront Properties
Does the Extension has an option to set the Categories as a selection into the left sidebar?
There is an option of inserting a CMS static block into a sidebar, so not only it is possible to display links to the featured articles, but also images, text and anything else CMS block can handle.
During the purchase I have to enter our url. Does this extension only work on 1 installation? Because we have a development environment and a production environment.
Our EULA allows using the extensions on a single production and as many dev or staging sites as you need without a need of purchasing an extra license.
How can I remove Blog from top menu?
Blog can be removed from the top menu by commenting the following event:
```
<event name="page_block_html_topmenu_gethtml_before">
<observer name="aw_blog_add_topmenu_items" instance="Aheadworks\Blog\Observer\AddBlogToTopmenuItemsObserver" />
</event>
```
in the following file:
app/code/Aheadworks/Blog/etc/frontend/events.xml

Note, to avoid any troubles it is recommended to make all the changes in dev environment.
Does it support multi-store?
Yes, it does. It is possible to configure the extension separately for different websites.
Will the comments in Blog be reviewed before displaying in the front end?
By default, all comments obtain Pending status and have to be approved by the admin first.
Does the extension support full page caching?
Since full page cache is a native Magento 2 feature, all our extensions for this platform support it.
I run Magento 1.X. Will my currently installed extensions from aheadWorks work in Magento 2?
Due to a significant difference between Magento 1 and Magento 2 branches, the extensions for M1 will not work in M2.
However, the owners of the extensions by Aheadworks for Magento 1 can get 25% discount on purchase the same extensions by AW for M2
Which URL do I specify on checkout if I've got only a development store at the moment?
You need to enter a final address of the site when it will go live.

If the domain name is still under consideration at the moment of purchase, you can enter an address of your dev environment. In this case, don't forget to contact us when the final domain name has been registered: our support team will change it by your request.
This extension for Magento 2 supports Saudi riyal currency and Arabic Language?
If your currency and language is natively supported by Magento 2, the extension will also support it.
However, to work with RTL most likely some style adjustments will be required and you will need to translate some options the same way as you did with your Magento.
I run Magento 2 on AWS with ELB (Elastic Load Balancers) do I need a license per EC2 instance? They are all behind the same domain.
Such setup is considered to be a single Magento environment, so you need only one license.
