Introduction

With Visual Designer, you can edit your existing template visually, as and when required. That means you can view instantly what changes you have made. You don’t need to type any code to modify your template. Simply click on a specific section of your template (i.e. Header, Footer, Menu, Featured Section, Logo) to change its colour (Background/Foreground), layout, style etc. After making all the changes, you need to save and publish the template.

Note: Currently, Visual Designer feature is available only in Revo template.
