October 2016 module updates that will make your website succeed

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”, said Anne of Green Gables by L. Montgomery. We are also so glad to release good updates to help your website succeed from October.

We believe you’ve got great results using our September monthly updates rollup. October improvements ensure that you will see new features and modules you can expect to. As usual, the underlying theme of monthly release is improved usability of a store, streamlined checkout process and awesome customer experience.

Sometimes all you need to launch a successful online business is a well done template. The main goal of Argento theme is to be reusable for all business purposes.

Take a look at 18 exciting updates for the best Magento responsive theme.

Argento 1.8.3

The carousel is always good idea to show either nice product image or promotional content. Now you can easily add a nice responsive and mobile optimized carousel to the Argento’s homepage.  

Slick Carousel module comes with 2 carousel types:

  • slick wrapper type can be used with dynamically generated content, such as magento widgets.
  • slick type is calling a carousel on a static content.

With a module you can also transform any product list widget (Magento built-in widgets, Highlight widgets, etc.) into Slick Carousel, use Slick lazy loading feature for static content carousels and set different slider options for different screen sizes.

Furthermore, the version 1.8.3 comes with custom styles for Slick product carousels. Change the carousel look for each Argento design. 

Argento has become the best selling theme thanks to its feature-rich functionality. In October our theme becomes must-have for large websites, indeed. Let's create mega menu like Amazon and help visitors find desired products much faster. Now you can easily group categories into a single drop down menu with Navigation Pro module. Overall, the extension supports a display of:

  • large dropdown with Daily Deals widget and advertising banners
  • simple stacked dropdowns
  • multi column layout with promotional banner
