Learning Prestashop/thirtybees Properly: Working the Home and Footer Blocks

by Richard R. Full Stack PHP developer - shoptech

In this series episode on Learning Prestahop/thirtybees properly, we are going to be learning about the Home and footer blocks. I mentioned the last lesson series Working with Banners effectively, that we are gonna be working on blocks, and we did! The slider module is actually nested on a block, as well as the navigation menu module which the Block Top Menu module. In this episode, we are going to expand our knowledge of Prestashop/thirtybees even further.

This time we will finalize the homepage together by adjusting the content of the different blocks and removing unnecessary content. You will see it done in 30 minutes, pretty simple enough, that anyone can follow and configure Prestashop modules in no time!

This is the 6th lesson in this series, Learning Prestashop or thirtybees properly.

A standard Prestashop and thirtybees homepage is already quite complete in it’s default configuration. Which is good for starting merchants that often starts small. You got everything you need at your finger tips with this ecommerce platform, especially thirtybees. In fact, the functionality we can find being loaded at default install is quite too much actually, we can definitely disable some of them if we want to. And I always recommend people to disable the elements that are not essential to get a clearer implementation and also easier to maintain content that is lighter on the server.

As we move deeper into this lesson, we are going to touch on the footer block. Footers are an important part of an ecommerce website or any website for that matter. It is where we tell people about resources of the business, links to see the experience of the business in this particular field, an accessible phone number, a real address and a email address. It is in the footer that you show your customers you exist in real life to remove whatever doubt they may have about you and your business.

In this series episode, we are going to learn a lot of things. I have listed them below for you to see and check later as you progress in this tutorial:
