Home page and its widgets
Your home page is the first page displayed on your app after the launching screen.
On this page, you can automatically highlight content from other pages, add call-to-actions, or insert useful links.
You build your Home with widgets.
By default, your application is pre-filled with widgets of different types:
List of collections : contains multiple collections
Search : field allowing a search from your Home page
Product list : list of all the products of a collection
Newsletter: your users can register here to receive your Newsletter
Important: In order to be able to add content widgets on your home page, you need to make sure that you have created the pages you wish to display in your widget first. The widget list depends on the pages published in your app.
Also, certain widgets are unique and can only be added once to the Home:
- Search widget
- Terms & Conditions widget
- Newsletter widget
