Magento 2.3.0 Updates
Magento has always provided the level of sophistication for product attributes. Magento 2 is no different.
Before diving into the creation of products, you need to explore a very important -- and powerful -- feature of Magento 2: product attributes and attribute sets. Read on to become familiar with attributes and attribute sets in Magento 2:
- Why are product attributes so important?
- What is the role of attribute sets?
- How Magento 2 uses attributes to manage the information associated with products?

People use UB Instant Layered Navigation for all sorts of things. Here’s the story of progressiveparts.com, a car parts store that bridges the gap between part suppliers, garages and end consumers themselves. And their story is truly inspiring.
We sat down for a Q&A interview with Ben Thomas, Progressive Parts’ founder about why they chose Magento 2, how it all came together and the process of building their store with UB Instant Layered Navigation extension.

How do you make a person stay in your Magento site without their eyes squinting or brows meeting, looking as though he is about to analyze the most complex, deep and meaningful painting? With so many pieces of unsorted, and most often unsolicited, advice on how to improve site navigation, choosing the best can be as easy as walking on a field full of active landmines. That’s right, it is never easy. However, with the right points, proper prioritization, and appropriate placing this can be achieved. Indeed, navigation can either make or break your site depending on significant design and development.
Since the launch of UB Instant Layered Navigation last November, we have continued to improve the extension on the feedback coming from the early adopters. Today, we’re very happy to release an important update of this extension which lets you set up Shop By Brand (Manufacturer) functionality with ease. It fully supports multi-website, multi-store configuration. If you’re using our UB Instant Layered Navigation we’d love for you to try it out and share your feedback.
Let’s take an inside look at this new feature:

You must be wondering, why Shop By Brand?
The list of brands is an essential element of Magento store navigation but sometimes the number of brands can be dozens or hundreds. A list of checkboxes would be way too long to handle that, but a dedicated brand listing page is just the right size. Shop By Brand is a way to address this need in a convenient but highly user friendly way.
