About the Reviewer


The Magento CMS provides you with the capability to customize your store without directly altering the XML and HTML files of your theme. You can build productive pages, blocks, and widgets, adding increased functionality and buyer conveniences.

That said, we should never shy away from rolling up our sleeves and diving into the actual theme files. By combining both disciplines, you have greatly elevated the potential of Magento to meet your retailing needs.

In this chapter, we learned about the Magento CMS functionality, viewed how to create and customize pages, explored the creation of blocks, and reviewed the many widgets available for your use.

Now that our store has products and content, it's time to let the world know your store exists as a premiere online shopping destination.
