Defining Validity Period for CMS Blocks

Edit on GitHub

This topic describes the steps of setting up the validity period for CMS blocks.

The validity period is a period of time during which a CMS block will be visible in the online store. Thus, you will not have to return to CMS block settings to remove it from the page because there is no need in its usage any longer. For instance, this may be important to use when holding marketing or promotion campaigns or adding a banner dedicated to special events.

To define the validity period:

  1. On the Overview of CMS Blocks page in the Actions column, click Edit Block next to the block you want to specify valid dates for.
  2. On the Edit CMS Block: Block ID page that opens, enter Valid from and Valid to dates during which your CMS block will be available on the page.
  3. To keep the changes, click Save.
