Create rich, interactive content that is driven by logic from price rules and customer segments. Existing dynamic blocks can be added directly to the Page Builder stage. For a detailed, step-by-step example for using dynamic blocks, see Tutorial 2: Blocks.
The Banners option in the Content menu was deprecated in 2.3.1 and is now removed. Its functionality is replaced by Dynamic Blocks.
When designing dynamic blocks for your store, take into consideration both the page layout and the theme you are using. Dynamic blocks are often designed to appear on a specific page, and in a specific part of the page layout. Although the header and footer are a fixed width, the width of the content area and sidebars can vary according to theme and page layout. When designing a dynamic block with graphic images, it is important to understand the page layout, so you can put the available space to best use.
