The benefit of GO themes is that a user doesn’t forfeit flexibility—they have the ability to make the front end feel unique and entirely their own as needed or desired. Pre-built templates allow users to quickly change the look and feel such as:

  • The contents of a module with a simple drag-and-drop
  • Shifting the location of an image within the page
  • Layout—e.g. changing from a 4-column layout to a 3-column layout 
  • Color and typography

Changes are then all available to review in preview before going live.
