  • Magento 2 - Modules for your Magento store (Part 1)

    The flexibility of Magento is one of the most appealing factors for businesses looking to adopt the platform. Not only does it come with a lot of functionality out of the box, but it also allows businesses to augment that functionality to meet their very specific business needs. One way businesses are able to do this is by adding modules to their Magento store. With the release of Magento 2, the ability to add modules remains and has, in my opinion, been improved. In this post we will discuss what modules are, the benefits of adding them to your store, and some things to consider when adding modules to your Magento store.

  • Site Search: SaaS vs. a Plug-in

    There’s a big difference between software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) site search, and the typical free (or nearly free) site search plug-ins available for download. The leading site search providers offer an intelligent site search algorithm, handle the site search traffic load on their own servers, and include excellent integration and ongoing support. Not only do you get ongoing support from your site search provider, but you can also benefit from training specialists, like MageTraining, who ensure your team is making the most out of your site search solution. You don’t get that with a plug-in.

  • How to Set-up Configurable Swatches in Magento versions 1.9.x

    What are Configurable Swatches? Configurable Swatches are a Magento feature that allow merchants to visually display the various options available for a configurable product. These options may be things such as colors or sizes. Instead of choosing a color from a drop-down list, customers are able to make their selection by clicking a swatch. Swatches allow for a more appealing and informative way of presenting merchandise, and Magento allows these to be used on product pages, category pages, and in layered navigation. Prior to Magento version 1.9, the swatch feature was not available by default in Magento and those seeking this functionality would need to install a module.
