Outstanting improvement of content box module

We are glad to announce that we released a new version of HTML box pro module. New version has got possibility to define custom hooks in your prestashop store. What does it mean? It just mean that you can easily create unlimited number of "positions" where you will be able to display content (blocks) created in our module. Pretty cool, don't you think? For us, developers it's a revolution!


Module supports feature to create and handle own hooks in PrestaShop 1.5.x and 1.6.x.  But no worries, future releases will handle custom hooks also in older prestashop versions. 


In this guide i want to show you how to create custom hook in our module, and then - how to include it to your template.
