The Customizer

Manage theme settings, customize the style and build your page layouts all in one customizer interface.

The first thing you see after opening YOOtheme Pro is the customizer split into a sidebar on the left and a real-time preview on the right. The sidebar offers a navigation across the different setting panels of YOOtheme Pro.
