And there is another way to do it as both Magento 1 and Magento 2 have the ability of massive update of related products, up-sells and cross-sells. Let’s find out more information in this article.
We are going to talk about event system approach in development. The event is a very flexible way to extend application logic. This approach is actual in both Magento 1 and Magento 2. Let’s go ahead and check how it works.
Redirects is a widely used approach not only in Magento but in most of other web applications. Saying “redirect” we usually mean a rule or a set of rules for sending user from one URL to another.
