In this article, you would be able to explore some of the modules that hold the properties of all designs. You can easily change them to your liking and achieve a personalized vision of your store!

Your Store has been initially created with a template and theme. Both the template and the theme determine the way your store is shown to your customers, both from a design and functionality perspective. Furthermore, CloudCart allows you not only to select from a subset of different themes but also fluidly customize the theme you have selected.

This is achieved by using all the options under My Store > Widgets, and chose which component to add, remove or configure from each of the main component categories. Below you can see a few options which will help you operate in order to further customize your store!
The following widgets are available on this page:

Slider
Banners (1 & 2)
Social Links

Home page slider

Customers will first see the home page of your Store and we made it available to have full control of its appearance and functionality. You can easily set a variety of options and make the perfect first impression for your customers.
At My Store > Widgets > Slider, you can see the basic settings for all Sliders that you will add.

The image can be chosen from Storage, Youtube, or an External Link:
