Edit front page

The front page can feature several sections: 2 widget areas, recent news, and your featured pages (via child pages).

The front page of Oceanica can be easily editable with the WordPress Customizer – a live editor.

To start working with it, go to your WordPress dashboard → Appearance → Customize.

The changes you make in the left-hand side menu are instantly visible (but not saved until you click Save button). You may also notice the blue icons with the pencil – you can click on them to get an instant access to all theme parts you want to modify.
