Custom Templates Overview

Customizing Templates in Nicepage, you can stylize pages that output Blog, Post, and Products differently. For example, you can have Product Details pages with different layouts and styling pages for goods and categories differently on one website. It allows you to quickly and consistently add other elements, layout, and styling for a particular template to make the pages using that template easy to recognize by your visitors.
