The following updates are mostly about speeding up Magento 2 sites. Our last enhancements allow for reduced loading speed and average conversion increase.

  • We added the footer bottom toolbar layout configuration in all Argento editors. Now you can hide copyright and footer link blocks and display selected static blocks in the footer bottom toolbar.
  • When preparing your store to pass the Core Web Vitals test we fixed the layout shift caused by breadcrumbs.
  • We fixed the ‘jumping’ header panel when the store/currency switchers were unavailable.
  • We reduced JS resources initial loading by adding lazy init for x-magento-init scripts, add to cart at product listing, mini cart, and auth popup templates.

Improvements in 14 modules of the Argento package

With Argento modules, we keep extending the functionality of Magento 2. These are proven ways to increase traffic and user engagement. With the extensions, we also improve the loading speed that results in faster user interactions and thus a better store position in search results.
