I've been using Magento 1 a while and wanted to see what Magento 2 was like.
I installed it via cpanel with the demo content.
The home page has a slider and other blocks of images / products.
I go to the home page in the content> pages section and see there is nothing on the page.
I check the static blocks and see there is a home page static block.. but I have to ask.
1) Why use a static block for this when you could have just put in on the page 2) How is the static block being called / pulled to the home page ?
When i use static blocks in Magento 1 I use code like
to call the content.
