How it works

This Magento 2 static blocks extension adds a great deal of convenience and flexibility to working with static blocks. First, the extension provides benefits of timing and segmentation, showing blocks to particular customer groups and according to a specific schedule. Second, administrator may use conditions to assign a block to a custom selection of pages - all at once.

Case Study

scheduled appearance

Let's say you want to create a continuous sense of urgency for your shoppers by reminding them that an order made by 5.00 PM gets delivered tomorrow. After 5.00 PM they'll have to wait for 2 days. How do you communicate that?

One way is to put up a banner saying just that: "Order by 5.00 PM - have it delivered tomorrow!". Only this banner will have to be taken down every day at 5.00 PM, then put up every morning at around 10.00 AM. Except for Friday and Saturday, because you don't deliver on weekends and it wouldn't make sense. And except for premium products - those are custom fitted and take 5 to 7 days.

Sounds like too much trouble? Not really! Use our Custom Static Blocks extension to schedule a Magento 2 block to appear on certain days of the week and at a certain time of the day. Additionally, use custom conditions to exclude/include all product pages where the banner should be displayed - no need to pick them one by one like in native Magento!

Flexible and convenient

There was a numebr of static blocks in our store and after an installation we did not have to recreate them again, which saved a lot of time for us.
Schedule feature is also handy, shows block on time. we use it to show our online status and for other promotional stuff.
Good extension. We had no problems with it both on magento 2.1.0 and after update to 2.1.2

No problem at all

Contrary to Z-Blocks for Magento 1, this extension utilizes native Magento static blocks, so it is not a problem if you already have a bunch of them. You can even place the same native CMS block into different Custom Static Blocks and have them displayed on different pages in different positions at a different time.
From the beginning, I was disappointed that the "custom position" option is missing, but I quickly realized that all my needs can be covered with a blocks settings, so it's not a problem at all.
Conclusion: It's very flexible and solid.
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 use coupon M1M2 to get 50% Off discount on purchase of any extensions by aW for M2
I've got some cms blocks on the pages already. Can I use them with the extension?
Absolutely, you can still use them both the way they are inserted into the pages now or inside the Custom Static Blocks.
Hi, I want to purchase this extention for our magento 2 website. However during the purchase I have to enter our url. Does this extention 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.
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.
