    Magento is the top eCommerce framework. It offers great flexibility with file structure. Magento uses elements like observer, block, blocks, template, layout, skins, theme and interface.

    A Magento page is a combination of Structural Block and Content Block that make it more flexible to change the design of page.

    There are mainly two types of blocks in Magento

    Structural blocks :- These blocks actually defines the structure of a page block. This is where content blocks resides.

    Example : Header, Left, Right, Footer and Main blocks (defines in page.xml)

    Example :- Any custom blocks, core/template block, cms/page block etc.
