Here is our new release for the Argento theme. Read to see new features you've waited for.

After a bit more than a month of updating Argento theme, we are ready to introduce the new release again. We added the possibility to apply theme editor customizations for custom themes. We improved 17 Argento extensions, including five new features for the Easy Banners module. New styles were added to make the template even more appealing.

Discover what else features bring the advantages to your Magento 2 website. Welcome to read the post about Argento 1.23 version enhancements.

Full control over customizations for custom theme

Since the 1.23 release, you can use the Theme Editor with Argento child themes. It means you get full control over the back-end that brings more flexibility and customizations.

When applying theme editor modifications for custom themes, you create brand identity design for your online store. Read how to enable Theme Editor to keep customizing your Magento 2 theme.

More integrations for faster load time

As you might remember we boosted the performance of Argento-based websites by removing unnecessary JavaScript. This is accomplished by integration with the Breeze module. With every next release, we add new options compatible with the Breeze module.

In the 1.23 release, we integrated the Argento Tabs script with Breeze.

Argento tabs - is a script wrapper around mage/tabs that allows you easily transform any custom content into tabs. Learn more at Argento docs.    

Before we go to the updates in Argento extensions, please look at additional enhancements of the 1.23 release:

  • Improved script lazy loading: fixed double add to cart issue.
  • Fixed error when top links block does not exist.
  • Product gallery RTL styles improved.
  • Magento_StorePickup styles added.
  • Argento Luxury: fixed missing title on option pages of the Attribute Pages module.
