One of the great things about modern web design tools is the drag and drop feature. In this Topic you learn how to quickly assemble a site with Home, About, Blog, Pricing and Contact pages. The routine is the same over and over. You add a page and then edit it. To edit it you can add a template and then edit the modules on the template, or you can add a row and then add modules to the row. Either way, once you are at the module level, you open the editing panel and that allows you to change all the content of the module.
The editing panel provides the ability to change any text in the module, as well as define fonts, styles, padding, and many other layout features. Most all panels have the same set of tabs for designing the module, so you get familiar with one and then have a pretty good idea of how to edit the next one.
The Customizer is also introduced here and that allows you to change the site title, site icon, and logo. Your Site Title appears on the home page in the upper left corner, and the Site Logo appears next to the Site Title. The Site Icon appears in the Google search tab.
