How Magento 2 Blog Works

Create a blog that will be the breeding ground for your super fans - those customers who will be authentic brand advocates spreading the word. Design a blog today with our Magento 2 Blog module in an easy and intelligible fashion: build categories, assign authors, classify topics, add speaking content and let readers scatter posts via social networks. Magento 2 news extension has all in one feature for you to further foster the loyalty of your brand’s community.


Make Product Navigation Intuitive

Hold the reins of your blog
Our Magento 2 Blog allows simple yet explicit control over your blog so that you create properly-structured, media-rich and wisely-scheduled content and as a result get a complete hold of your readers’ attention.
features
Structure well
Alongside fine-tuning of the layout of the blog, Magento 2 Blog extension allows categorising posts in hierarchy. The category tree is then visible on the backend when designing posts and on the front-end when browsing the blog.
Personify your blog
With the Magento 2 Blog merchants are able to add information about authors to posts, so that readers may opt for the columns of their favourite authors and even contact them.
Schedule your blog posts
Magento 2 news extension supports easy advance organisation of posts. The scheduling feature helps writers manage their time more efficiently, show appreciation of various time-zones and, as a result, have the information relevant to the time.
Bring customers closer to the brand
Magento 2 Blog module helps create a blog which interacts with readers and thereby helps increase their engagement with the brand.
features
Foster immediate reaction
Authors may enable sharing blog posts and commenting on them. Sharing will be available via the social networks icons, and commenting via the integrated Disqus module below the post.
Relate products to posts
For cross-promotion purposes, you may assign related products to a blog post. Once done, the pages of the related products will show a tab to the post.
Have your posts SEO-friendly
Authors may set-up URLs for posts manually, or let our Magento 2 Blog do it for them. The extension does not fit out the urls with names of the categories. This facilitates clear indexation of post pages. Furthermore, authors may provide posts with meta titles and descriptions.

Case Studies on how to:
WHY BLOG?

A blog is essential. It helps build up a community which in turn will build up your retail.

Are you a merchant with a 20000-SKU household supply? A blog is essential for you. You can do product reviews, top 10 lists, comparisons, how-to guides and more. This is how you foster the community around your brand, communicate your care about customers, forecast their needs, show expertise in the products you sell, attract attention to special announcements. This is how you win their loyalty and prompt to spread the word.

Are you a custom furniture designer? In a blog you may show your studio, tell your customers about the types of raw materials you use, give some advice from your work experience, and so on. Whoever you are, and whatever is your business, a blog is essential for it.

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 show the personality of the brand or reveal your own identity. Whichever way you choose, or whichever combinations you may think of, a blog will tell your customers their belonging to your brand.


SEO enhancements


  • XML sitemap

    All blog posts are listed in the sitemap.xml file. This feature makes 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 blog and add it as a canonical tag in order to avoid the issue of duplicated content.

  • SEO-friendly URL's

    You can set up the URL of a post manually. Furthermore, post URLs do not include categories. This fact facilitates indexation of individual post pages.

  • URL configuration

    For SEO purposes, you can add or withdraw categories from URLs.



Blog posts


  • Disqus integration Screen

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

  • Recent posts widget

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

  • Related products on post pages

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

  • Social media sharing options

    The extension supports the Open Graph and Twitter Cards markups.

  • Creating a post with a catchy look

    The smart WYSIWYG editor with its multiple tools for rich-text formatting, product widgets operation, the Bluefoot feature (Magento Commerce) and etc allows creating really beautiful content. You may further enrich it by uploading images and attaching media files of any type.

  • 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 the visitors to the web-page 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 maintaining 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


  • Visual style

    Design elements of the blog are taken native from Magento. This provides for seamless integration with your store.

  • Mass actions for posts

    Store owners can manage blog posts with mass actions.

  • Blog post viewing permissions

    Restrict access of particular customer groups to certain posts if required.

  • Scheduling blog posts

    When it comes to vacations or time-zone gaps, it is particularly useful to schedule posts and have them published on predefined dates and hours.

  • Blog layout

    The number of posts per page, post previews, and the sidebar composition are completely customizable.

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.

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.
Does it support multi-store?
Yes, it does. It is possible to configure the extension separately for different websites.
How can I remove Blog from top menu?
In Blog starting from 2.6.0 it is possible to remove it by disabling the Add Blog to Navigation Menu option.

As for earlier versions, it can be done 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
