In the theme editor, there are widgets that you can use on the home page of your online store. Widgets are features that you can use to display images, textual content, or display a group of collections so that website visitors can easily search for the desired item.

To set the widget, you can open the Sales Channel menu, then click the online store sub-menu. Click on the theme at the top of the page, then click the change button on the default theme to enter the theme editor.

On the right side of the theme editor, you can see the widgets already installed in your online store. You can delete, add and change the position of these widgets. You can also edit each widget to adjust it to the needs of your online store.

Main Widget

There are 3 main widgets that you cannot delete or change the order, namely Header, Banner and Footer. You can still make adjustments to the three widgets to suit your online store. Here are the functions of each widget and how it looks.

The header is the very top of your online store page that is automatically available and cannot be deleted. In the header, there will be a navigation menu, language settings, currency options, customer account settings, shopping cart and search.
